Being data nerds, we realized that we couldn’t just watch the Grammys without digging a little deeper into the question on FanBridge’s mind.

What’s the social media value of a Grammy award?

We looked at last night’s biggest categories to figure out who showed the greatest lift in Facebook Likes, Twitter followers, and YouTube views (for song-oriented awards). Artists with asterisks next to their name also performed on the show.
