The article discusses the importance of music awards. Most awards shows just need to look good. But nobody really notices the sound, unless, of course, it completely cuts out during some celebrity acceptance speech. Even most music awards shows are more about outfits and bling than they are about actual musical performances. The Grammy Awards telecast is different. It is the premier annual showcase for the recording industry, and those involved take sound very seriously. The 2003 Grammys was the first awards show to be produced in high-def with 5.1; this year, it was about fine-tuning the process.
