GHOST were honored with a Grammy in the "Best Metal Performance" category at the 58th annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. GHOST was nominated for the song "Cirice", from the 2015 album "Meliora".
In his brief acceptance speech, GHOST frontman Papa Emeritus III said: "Hello. We are GHOST. Thank you so much for this. This is a big, big thing for us, obviously. And, you know, a nightmare has just turned into a dream. So… Thank you all for that. Thank you, everybody involved, and thank you for voting. Now go party."
The other nominees in the "Best Metal Performance" category were August Burns Red, Lamb Of God, Sevendust (didn’t even know they were still around!!) and Slipknot.
