The VIP Grammy Experience by Mastercard (VIDEO)

Sponsored Post: In support of its partnership with The Recording Academy, MasterCard again hosted its “VIP GRAMMY® Experience,” offering cardholders the opportunity to experience the GRAMMYs, and the excitement and action leading up to the event, firsthand. Cardholders in the U.S. had the chance to win a VIP GRAMMY Experience by using their MasterCard card between October 1st and November 30th, 2011.

Two lucky cardholders were selected as winners of the “VIP GRAMMY Experience,” which included tickets to the 53rd Annual Grammy® Awards on February 13, 2011, behind-the-scenes access to artists’ rehearsals, pre-GRAMMYs makeover, a walk across the red carpet, entry to select pre- and after-parties, and a MasterCard Gift Card toward a new GRAMMY wardrobe.

Throughout their weekend at the GRAMMYs, these lucky winners captured their experiences to share with other fans and cardholders through MasterCard’s Facebook page. Feel what it’s like to be a part of the GRAMMYs through them by logging on at
