Of all the awards show, I love the Grammys best. The awards are bogus sometimes, but the show is the best. And, you know why? Because the Grammys don’t give out every freakin’ award on the show. Just the biggies with lots of performances. Good call, Grammy. So, here we go:
Best Moments: Jennifer Hudson’s song; Adele’s tears; and Taylor Swift’s stunned expression at her well-deserved standing ovation.
Lowest Moments: Chris Brown’s graceless thank you speech and whatever that Nicki Minaj number was.
LL Cool J now joins Hugh Jackman and Neil Patrick Harris in the elite circle of Men Who Can Host Anything.
And, he totally pulled off that prayer in the beginning to Sister Whitney.
I see politicians lining up to grab Bruce Springsteen’s new anthem “We Take Care of our Own” for their own anthem for the election. Except so few of them actually do.
You’d think after all these years, Bruce could afford to buy Little Stevie his own mic.
I know it’s great to have Adele back, but can we take a second to praise Bonnie Raitt? Wow, talk about sounding great. Loved the Alicia and Bonnie tribute to Etta James.
I don’t know how Lady Gaga sat there all night with that fishnet on her face. It was making MY skin crawl.
Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters is the world’s nicest rocker. But I’m not sure everybody in the house appreciated his comments about “real” music vs. computers. Like the dance deejays he performed with ten minutes later who riled up the crowds just as much as the Foos.
The Beach Boys tribute didn’t work on any level. Adam Levine looked bored and the poor Foster the People hipster look terrified. And, I’m not sure The Beach Boys even spoke to each other during rehearsal.
Words I never thought I’d type: Rhinestone Cowboy made me cry. Way to go, Glen Campbell.
Rhianna killed. KILLED! Then Coldplay showed up and that was a downer.
I feel nothing for Chris Martin. Not a single flicker of Rock Star Crush. But at least Gwyneth didn’t sing.
Loved Fergie’s dress. Maybe she’ll let me borrow it for a black tie event I have to emcee in June.
No hard feelings, Sir Paul, but I think Diana Krall should have sung your “new standard.”
Still, the guy has a rockin’ head of hair.
Who are The Civil Wars? Will Google later.
Adele deserved every award she won.
Bruno Mars appeared to be the only person in the house that didn’t know Adele was going to win everything.
Every show should end with a Beatle.
