In a bizarre however enjoyable little title, the beloved bottomless pit Kirby has scooped up an official Grammy Award, changing into the primary Nintendo character to take action. The pink puffball struck the bell on the sixty fourth Annual Grammy Awards, held on the MGM Grand Backyard Enviornment in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Strictly talking, the prize was received by the gifted duo of Charlie Rosen and Jake Silverman, who have been nominated within the “Finest Association, Instrumental or A Cappella” class. The profitable tune was the massive band composition of Jun Ishikawa’s theme “Meta Knight’s Revenge”, which seems within the 1996 SNES launch kirby celebrity.

Rosen and Silverman, who’re well-known for jazz and large band covers of well-known online game themes, have been understandably thrilled with the Grammy win, not hiding their pleasure in a social media announcement.

“HOLY SHIT WE WON THE GRAMMY!! LONG LIVE VIDEO GAME MUSIC!! » wrote the duo on Twitter. “Thanks to everybody who has already listened [the8bitbigband]ALL (the) artists who gave of their time/expertise and naturally a HUGE thanks to my one and solely co-arranger Button_Masher!! LOTS OF LOVE!”

8-bit Band’s rendition of “Meta Knight’s Revenge” is simply the second piece of online game music to win a Grammy Award. In 2010, composer Christopher Tin received “Finest Instrumental Association with Vocalist” for the monitor “Baba Yetu”, which appeared within the strategic epic Civilization 4. A number of years later, Journey composer Austin Wintory was nominated within the “Finest Rating Soundtrack for Visible Media” class, a certainly deserving nomination that sadly didn’t win.

I assume the one query left is who actually received the Grammy, the Kirby or the Meta Knight?

Maybe we’ve the drama knot of the following model of Kirby proper beneath our noses.
