There are clearly never losers during awards season. To get all of the Billboard hit makers and presenters properly pumped for this Sunday's megastar-filled ceremony, the Grammy Awards pitched massive white tents at the LA Convention Center for their annual gift lounge.
Presented by innovative Japanese beauty company MTG, the lounge offered a range of star-pleasing goodies, from practical (stylish snapbacks, $250+ shaving systems) to completely rando (infrared scalp massagers) and other fancy things that non-normals could possibly need. Up ahead, take a peek at some of the goods inside the Grammy gift lounge.
