A GRAMMY® Winning Moment vs. A PCH Winning Moment

Memorable Grammy winning moments – much like the winning moments PCH is famous for – filled the star-studded 53rd Annual Grammy Awards this past Sunday. To get the evening started, Lady Gaga made an extravagant entrance when she arrived to the event in a big plastic egg. The PCH Prize Patrol knows a thing or two about extravagant entrances but all they need is a mini-van with balloons, champagne and of course the big check.

Kicking off the show was a beautiful tribute to Aretha Franklin, who unfortunately was unable to make it to the event due to a hospitalization and recovery. That was followed by more top star performances and Grammy awards for the most talented artists of the last year.

Of the many winning moments, a few stood out from the rest. For starters, Lady Antebellum, the talented Country Music group, received not one, but 5 different Grammy awards over the course of the evening including Best Country Album, Best Record of the Year, Best Song of the Year, Best Country Song and Best Country Performance. Phew – that’s a long list of winning moments! Additionally, Arcade Fire won the Best Album of The Year which they were quite surprised to receive! You can read the full listing of Grammy Winning Moments by visiting Grammy.com.

For the rest of us that don’t have the musical talent to win a Grammy (myself included), Publishers Clearing House has an alternative that comes in the form of a Big Check! And that big check could make you $10 Million richer! All it takes is a quick trip to PCH.com where you can submit your entry for the chance to have your very own winning moment. If you’re our next PCH SuperPrize winner, you’ll be so happy you’ll want to party like a rock star for sure!

Regards,

Frank @ PCH

Well, Although the winning moments of the grammy award winners are fancy and extravagant and full of HOOPLAH and that of the Pch is simple the gratification are entirely different. The Grammy Award winners are already in the peak of their success. Their win is just like the icing of the cake. On the other hand the Pch winners feel fulfilled emotionally, materially and finacially. The grammy award winner winning moments make the winner more of a celebrity. gets a trophy to display, gets more fans and public recognition and show the world that they are better than their contemporaries. There is a competition between colleagues. The grantor of the winners’ trophy doen not feel the fulfillment and the PCH experience of helping people who are in dire need. Pch winners mostly stop the foreclosures of their homes,help them pay their medical bills, contribute to legitimate and astounding CHARITIESand get them out from the poor house . You could ask the PRIZE PATROL how fulfilling it is to deliver the surprise message to their winners, Last but not least the main difference between the two awards is the fact that grammy awards presentation are prepared and staged while the PCH event are done in such a way to prepare the winners. Winners of the former are glitzy but winners of the latter are sometimes in their grubby clothes. Grammy award winning moments maybe pompous but PCH winning moments are modest and less haughty. Whatever the difference, the two have a style and methods of their own. Both makes the winners extremely happy in yheir own ways.

I like to make a correction in a sentence error of my above blog. Instead of saying that the PCH event are done in such a way to prepare a winner it should say PCH EVENT ARE DONE IN SUCH A WAY TO SURPRISE A WINNER. Instead of prepare it should be surprise.

PCH MAKES A WINNER FEEL LIKE THEIR ON TOP OF THE WORLD, LIKE ALL THEIR DREAMS HAVE COME TRUE, LIKE ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IF YOU BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS…

LIKE THE SKIES THE LIMIT AND NOTHNG IS IMPOSSIBLE….

THE PCH IS ALSO FULL OF GLITZ AND GAMOUR, YOU GET PRESENTED TO THE WORLD ON YOUR LITTLE “DOORSOP PEDASTAL”, BUT THE WORLD GETS TO SEE YOU AS YOU REALLY ARE, NOT ALL GLIZTED UP IN THOUSAND DOLLAR DRESSES..
BUT.. IN A ROBE AND SLIPPERS WITH CURLERS IN YOUR HAIR, OR A FUNDATION MASK ON, WITHOUT MAKEUP, OR JUST SWEATS! BECAUSE…THAT IS HOW “REAL” PEOPLE ARE WHEN THEY ARE IN THEIR HOME…
THE PRIZE PATROL PRESENTS THE WINNER WITH ROSES, CHAMPAGNE AND A CHECK AND MAKES THE CENTER OF THE STAGE..

IF IT WAS ME WINNING…
I’D BE LIKE:

“I NEVET THOUGHT THIS MOMEMT COULD EVER BE POSSIBLE, I’D LIKE TO THANK ALL MY PR AGENTS ON THE PCH BLOG, I’D LIKE TO THANK MY FRIENDS FOR MAKING ME GO ON THE PCH WEBSITE EACH DAY,
I’D LIKE TO THANK CONAN O’BRIEN FOR GETTING HIMSELF BACK ON THE AIR (WHAT THAT HAS TO DO WITH ME, I REALLY DON’T KNOW, BUT IT SOUNDS GOOD…)
I’D LIKE TO THANK DAVE SAYER, TODD SLOANE, DEBORAH HOLLAND AND MARYANN CARTER FOR MAKING THIS DREAM COME TRUE…
AND ALSO MARYAN”S PARROT IZZY FOR BEING A PART OF THE PCH TEAM….

NEXT I’D LIKE TO INVITE ‘YA ALL OVER FOR A NICE HOME MADE BARBEQUE WITH RIBS AND ALL THE FIXINGS….. LOL LOL LOL LOL ”

A DREAM COME TRUE..

I’LL KEEP DREAMING……

I now avoid the award shows,after having watched them in the past.

I found that I soon became disillusioned with many of my favorites after some of the very bad antics they pull during award shows. I would much rather retain the music itself and forget the rest. What some of these woman are wearing!? I know they are in show business, but still,a little pride in their own selves would be nice to see.

the PRIZE PATROL is one awards program I hope to never miss and I have the utmost respect for.

It is in good taste to present flowers, champagne, and of course the BIG Check, from a well, and professionally clothed group of people who TAKE PRIDE in what they do.

I do hope to meet them all someday. My welcome mat is certainly out.
Say Prize Patrol, what are you all doing on February 28th, 2011? I know this would be a good time to meet you all, my calender is free, COME ON BY, STAY for a while, and OH, don’t forget the Big Check. By the way, I prefer ICE WINE to Champagne. Hope to see you soon !

February 28th’ – PCH-Grammy Award presenters are none other than: Danielle, Frank, Todd, Natalie… and coming out of retirement for the occasion…”Dave (The Man) Sayer” and accompanying them (hopefully) will be a surprise guest: “Conan O’Brien” himself in the flesh with his antics… Each PCH-artist has an equal chance of being nominated and even winning… (they didn’t have to do anything to go Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze)… All we had to do is Enter, Enter, Enter… and, while doing that we just had fun playing games on PCH-Games (FB-games – Bingo on FB and others)… did a little PCH-Search & Win or Spin and Win… watch some PCH-TV or look at videos/pictures of past PCH-winners who were on the “red-carpet”… head to the casino to try our luck with PCH-Lotto… spin sometime chatting or blogging on PCH-Blog (FB/Twitter). We are all watching and waiting for that great day that will be televised “LIVE” on NBC’s Nightly News with Tom Brokaw… PCH… the place where dreams come true!!!! hooray, woohoo, I’m Jazzed-up with excitement!!!!
