Broadcast live on January 28, the 60th Annual Grammy Awards featured multiple performing artists who used 20 channels of Sennheiser’s digital wireless technology and four channels of its analog wireless technology.

Kendrick Lamar kicked off the show and used a Sennheiser Digital 6000 wireless system featuring an SKM 9000 transmitter and MD 9235 capsule for pristine transmission of his riveting rhymes. Lady Gaga sang through a Sennheiser 3000/5000 series wireless system featuring the SKM 5200 transmitter and MD 5235 capsule combination, which carried her dynamic vocal performance with crispness and clarity. Cardi B joined Bruno Mars for a performance of the remix of “Finesse,” with Mars using an SKM 9000 and MD 9235 transmitter and capsule combination for the retro-tinged hit.

Miley Cyrus used a Digital 9000 wireless system with SKM 9000 and MD 9235 for her duet with Elton John on his classic hit “Tiny Dancer.” P!NK delivered a stripped-down and powerful rendition of her moving “Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken” utilizing her Digital 6000 wireless system with an SKM 9000 and MD 9235 transmitter and capsule combination. Sam Smith used the very same configuration for his performance of the ballad “Pray.” Host James Corden used Sennheiser wireless too, employing the Digital 9000 wireless system with an SKM 9000 transmitter and a Neumann KK 204 capsule.

 “It is always a thrill to see Sennheiser microphones put to use by the industry’s leading artists on the year’s biggest stage,” said Byron Gaither, artists relations manager, Sennheiser. “There’s no better testament to the quality and superior design of our products than having them used by musicians and performers working at the highest possible level.”
