 Key findings from GreenLight’s 2010 analysis include:
 15% of 2010 Grammy ads featured celebrity endorsements, a 150% spike from last year
;  22% of ads featured pop music, about the same as the past two years
;  U.S. car makers dominated Grammy ads, with 16% of total ads, and more
 than a quarter of ads featuring celebrity endorsements or pop music. Olay (11 spots), Target (8 spots), Lincoln (6 spots) and Chevy (5

incorporating celebrities and/or pop music.
