A few weeks ago, Oscar-nominated live television presenter, and Oscar-winning producer, J.J. Abrams was in LA and filmed a live broadcast of the Grammys.
As part of his trip, Abrams used the same studio that produced his Oscar-win, and as a result, the studio’s live broadcast has been viewed more than 5.5 million times.
The Grammy award winner’s live stream of the show was uploaded to YouTube and now has more than 1.6 million views, making it the most viewed live broadcast from any award show in history.
On the show, Abrams said he is always thinking about the fans and his audience, and that this is the biggest audience for any live broadcast he has ever done.
“If you go back and look at all the awards and the nominees that we have won and the winners that we’ve won, it is not even close,” Abrams said.
“It is one of the biggest audiences for any award we have ever done and it’s not even that close.
It is not a close second.”
The Grammys broadcast was filmed in New York, with the Grammy nominees and the Grammy winners arriving at the show’s venue at Staples Center.
Abrams told reporters that he is not sure what the Grammy broadcast would have looked like had he stayed in Los Angeles and filmed the broadcast in LA, but he was happy to share it with the world.
“It’s not just for the Grammy fans, it’s for everybody that loves the Grammy Awards, it just makes it even better,” Abrams explained.
“I’m really proud of this show.
I’m really, really happy.”
