There was quite a bit of confusion at the 2013 Grammy Awards on February 10, when the winner was announced for Best Classical Instrumental Solo. “Kim Kardashian? We didn’t even know she knew how to play the viola!”
Nope, you just misheard, but you can’t be blamed if you did. The winner is actually Kim Kashkashian, a violist from Detroit who won the award for her solo album, Kurtag/Ligeti: Music for Viola.
However, the classical musician does have one thing in common with Kim — they’re both Armenian Americans. Guess that explains the freaky similarity in their surnames! Still, it would have been pretty cool if both Kanye West and Kim had scored matching gold gramophones.
