    Recording Academy honors Glen Campbell, Steve Jobs and more
    December 21, 2011 | 11:45 am

    Today, the Recording Academy named Glen Campbell, the Allman Brothers Band, George Jones, Diana Ross, Gil Scott-Heron, the Memphis Horns and Antonio Carlos Jobim as recipients of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Awards. Steve Jobs, Dave Bartholomew and Rudy Van Gelder were also chosen to receive Trustee Awards.

    The recipients will be honored at an invitation-only ceremony Feb.11, and the honorees will be acknowledged  the following day during the telecast of the 54th annual Grammy Awards at Staples Center.   

     “This year’s honorees offer a variety of brilliance, contributions and lasting impressions on our culture,” Neil Portnow, president and chief executive of the Recording Academy, said in a statement released Wednesday. “It is an honor to recognize such a diverse group of individuals whose talents and achievements have had an indelible impact on our industry.”

    The Recording Academy describes the Lifetime Achievement Award as honoring those “performers who have made contributions of outstanding artistic significance to the field of recording.” The Trustees Award “recognizes contributions in areas other than performance.” Both awards are determined by vote of the Recording Academy’s national board of trustees.

    Celemony and Roger Nichols were also named as Technical Grammy Award honorees for their  outstanding contributions to the recording field. Technical Grammy Award recipients are voted in by the academy’s producers and engineers wing advisory council and chapter committees as well as the academy’s trustees.

    I still dont understand why Diana Ross did not receive a grammy for WE ARE THE WORLD.. Record of the year goes to the producer and artists..and Diana Ross along with about a dozen other singers had solos and  she shouldve been considered  an artist…so why no grammy in that case?? Does anybody have the answer??

    I thought about this when I read the article earlier. I have no clue, but Ms. Ross should be a Grammy winner for “We Are The World.”

    It’s funny that her first Grammy will be a Lifetime Achievement Award.

    Well, she isn’t credited I think Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones are.  She should have won at least one Grammy during the 60s to early 80s regardless.  She was disliked by her peers for obvious reasons. LoL

    A Lifetime Achievement award doesn’t really count as a Grammy.

    An honorary award doesn’t count as actually winning an award.

    She still never has won a Grammy even after this February.

    Why is Cyndi Lauper credited for the win for WRTW and not Diana? Anyways it makes me sick that her and the Supremes have never won anything. Though who cares, Grammys are irrelevant.

    I don’t think Cyndi was ever awarded a Grammy for “We Are The World.” Her only Grammy is for Best New Artist.

    A Grammy is a Grammy and an Oscar is an Oscar. If you win one or get honored by one then your still a winner,IMO!
