There is finally a reason to care about the Grammy Awards.
Kirby has become a Grammy Awards winner. Kirby is known for his infinite powers but Grammy Award winner wasn't one of the abilities anyone could have predicted. Still, it's no surprise that a warrior who can destroy planets and absorb any power could produce a song worthy of an award.
Meta Knight's Revenge from the 1996 game Kirby Superstar won Best Arrangement, Instrumental or A Cappella. The song was performed by The 8-Bit Big Band, which is an orchestra with dozens of members that specializes in putting a classical spin on video game music. It's a jazzy spin on a Kirby classic, the same treatment The 8-Bit Big Band has given to songs from Zelda, F-Zero, and more.
Video game music is often not nominated for a Grammy, but it's possible that Kirby was on the mainstream media's radar thanks to the success of Kirby and the Forgotten Land. The game was considered the "biggest" Kirby game launch in Japan and has broken records in the UK. The game has already sold more copies than Elden Ring.
It was still a pretty big surprise to the video game world, including the songs' own producers. On Twitter, Charlie Rosen said: "LONG LIVE VIDEO GAME MUSIC."
Interestingly enough, Kirby does have the ability to sing if he has the Mike ability. But in Right Back At Ya, Kirby's singing voice was horrendous.
