Celebrities Turned the Grammys Political and Bashed Trump — Now the Ratings Are In…Ouch

The Grammys were held Sunday night, and things quickly turned political. It started on the red carpet with a breath of fresh air, as singer Joy Villa appeared wearing a dress with a bold pro-life message:

Then the show kicked off.

Camila Cabello took the stage to share her own story about immigration and voice her support for “Dreamers.” She stated, “I’m here on this stage tonight because just like the Dreamers, my parents brought me to this country with nothing in their pockets but hope. They showed me what it means to work twice as hard and never give up.”

Then, Hillary Clinton even made an appearance. John Legend, Snoop Dogg and Cher all read excerpts from Michael Wolff’s anti-Trump book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” as part of a segment where they pretended to go for the Best Spoken Word Album award.

The last person to read was Clinton, and as she showed her face behind the book, the crowd burst out in a loud cheer.

Watch:

Well now, the ratings are in for the politically charged event, and they aren’t pretty.

According to Deadline, 19.81 million viewers tuned in to the show, which was 24 percent lower than the 2017 Grammys. It was the smallest audience the Grammys drew since 2009.

Yikes.
