Kirby Got a Grammy Nomination Too

Much like how he sucks up enemies, you could argue Kirby also sucks at singing. Kirby’s singing is usually so bad that all of the on-screen enemies are destroyed when he belts out a piercingly high note with the Mike ability. But now, the Pink Puffball has a shot at winning a Grammy Award, even if the nomination is only indirectly related to Kirby himself.

Under the category for Best Arrangement, Instrumental or A Cappella on the full list of Grammy nominees, Meta Knight’s Revenge (From “Kirby Superstar”) is one of the nominated tunes. This Grammy-nominated arrangement was written by Charlie Rosen and Jake Silverman, and was performed by The 8-Bit Big Band Featuring Button Masher. It’s a phat and funky version of the tune that originally appears in 1996’s Kirby Super Star for the Super Nintendo. You can check out the full recording of the arrangement on YouTube.

Video game nominations are a rare occurrence at the Grammys. Back in 2012, Austin Wintory’s soundtrack for Journey became the first video game soundtrack to receive a Grammy nomination in the Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media category. The award ended up going to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

As for Kirby, you can check out the source material, Kirby Super Star, on the SNES Nintendo Switch Online service. And his next adventure, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, is coming to Switch early next year. The game is a 3D adventure that takes place in some sort of post-apocalyptic setting, and it looks like a big departure from the series’ recent entries.
