"Across the board - online, mobile and social - we saw huge increases in the interaction people had with this year's GRAMMY Awards," said Evan Greene, Chief Marketing Officer for The Recording Academy. "We're thrilled that our efforts to engage people in the show paid off both in terms of how much activity we saw across all the interactive platforms, as well as the GRAMMY's telecast's significantly increased viewership."

THE 54th ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS delivered more than 39.9 million viewers, the largest GRAMMY audience since 1984 and the second largest in history, according to Nielsen updated live plus same day ratings for Sunday, Feb. 12.
