Random Grammy Stuff


Is Taylor Swift a star, or just a cute girl with good songs.  Though her performance was better than some of her other appearances, she still looked like she was doing Karaoke in front of a mirror in her bedroom. Will her career be over when she stops getting her heart broken? How many times did the director need to show her singing along to some of the songs.  She looked like anything but a star?

What happened to Rap music?  Sure Nas and JayZ were in the house.  But Kanye and other icons were nowhere to be seen?

How refreshing is it to see rock music come to the forefront!

Did Ed Sheeran tell Elton that he screwed up the lyrics on A-Team?

How cool was it to see the singer from Mumford playing the kick drum while singing and playing guitar?

How come the tribute to Bob Marley ran shorter than a Cialis commercial?

Did Miranda Lambert  have the lights on when she got dressed yesterday afternoon?

Could Prince  have looked more uncomfortable?  He makes Dylan looks like a chatterbox!  Do you think he may be a vampire?

I really like Justin Timberlake.  But is it just me, or was his performance all “sizzle and no steak”? The song just wasn’t very good.

Weren’t The Lumineers amazing?

I have to hand it to Carrie Underwood.  The producer must have said you need to go out and sing your song in front of millions of people.  We will transpose designs on your dress that can only be seen on TV.  Oh by the way, you can’t move an inch.

Is it possible there is someone with less talent than Ryan Seacrest that gets more TV time?

It was nice to see Alan Mintz remembered during the In Memoriam section of the broadcast.

Finally, who did Kathy Griffin have to sleep with to get such a good seat?
