What are some of your favorite acceptance speeches for music award shows? My favs:October 31, 2014 at 5:11 am #403746
I gotta go with U2 winning for Beautiful Day. That speech was pretty well done.October 31, 2014 at 9:45 am #403747
My most favorite speech was at the 2009 CMA awards show when my most favorite singer James Otto was given the Song of the Year award for “In Color” along with Jamey Johnson and Lee Thomas Miller. To me what made it so precious was when James admitted to forgetting to thank his wife when getting Song of the Year earlier that year at the ACM awards for “In Color”. (shaking my head with a smile)
God bless you and James and his wife and Lee and Jamey always!!!
P.S. Go here to see the winning moment! Its only like a minute and a half long. (smiles)

The only music awards I watch are the Grammys, and since they show so few damn actual awards, these have the least significant impact on me. And when we actually get the speeches, they’re usually only a minute or so long due to producers’ demands (got to get in those 20 performances per telecast, sigh). I remember one speech that moved me, which was Jennifer Hudson’s Grammy win for R&B Album. Whitney Houston presented it to her, and it was right after her shocking family tragedies. It was the epitome of grace under pressure, though I’m sure the producers wanted tears and histrionics and would have let that speech go on for five minutes or more. She was having none of that, and I respected her all the more for it.
