The award show consisted of great entertainment and performances by various top artists. It was only natural for them to get out there and have a little fun after the big event!

    4.  Football Season:  From here on out, every Sunday the men in your family are useless as they gather around the TV cheering on their teams! This time each year we notice the trend of football parties. Great, original ideas for football parties are always emerging around this time of year.
