Yesterday's star-studded ceremony included some of the biggest names in the industry, including Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Daft Punk, Madonna, Usher and more, with Calvin Harris and Chris Martin joining in via webcam. TIDAL will offer CD-quality audio and high-definition music videos at $9.99 a month for standard sound and $19.99 for High Fidelity sound. "We want to create a better service and a better experience for both fans and artists, and that is our promise to the world," said Keys.
