The music industry’s biggest night is also one of TV’s biggest social media events of the year. It’s truly become a dual screen experience. Last year, Evan Greene, Chief Marketing Officer for The Recording Academy said “Social engagement at the GRAMMY’s continues to explode year over year as fans seek ever deeper ways to connect with Music’s Biggest Night.” That trend continued this year.

Over the last few days, we tracked the activity surrounding The Grammys official Twitter page @TheGRAMMYs, culminating with last night’s show. The big bump in overall account activity was demonstrated by the rise of its eValue score, capping off at 100/100 after the event.

The popularity of the television event and engagement of it’s viewers means there is already a lot of conversations going on that they can leverage on their own accounts. Celebrities showed up in fine form on social media last night posting about their own experiences and opinions of the Grammys. The Grammys account took to re-tweeting those posts on their own twitter stream.

The Grammys also did an incredible job at responding to people’s activity around the show. For users, knowing that there’s someone reading their content triggers more engagement and conversation. If we look at the rise in their responsiveness score, we can see that they definitely employed this strategy.
