AFTER THE GRAMMYS? INDIA!
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - For the Grammy Awards official after-party, celebrants went to India.
Actually, they just went to the Los Angeles Convention Center, right next door to the Staples Center where the 55th annual Grammy ceremony was held, but the space inside was transformed into a Bollywood party.
Belly dancers writhed rhythmically on various stages beneath lanterns and bright pink canopies, while aerial gymnasts dangled overhead. The massive ballroom was dotted with such stages and food stations boasting fare from Asia and America.
The B-52s and Estelle performed, drawing partygoers to the dance floor.
Multiple Grammy-winner Skrillex was among the celebrants, but he made an early exit _ likely to attend one of many private post-Grammy parties planned for throughout the city.
