Grammy's Review Part 2

Performances:

M.I.A./Jay-Z/Kanye/Lil' Wayne/T.I. - Jay's verse is my favorite. I like their outfits and how they made it be black and white for TV. It was just okay for me, nothing mind-blowing.

Paul McCarthy - Umm...it might be time to let it go. I love this song but every time he goes for the high note it just makes me cringe. sigh.

Sugarland/Adele -I love both of these songs and they both sound great live. They really need to start playing Adele's songs on the radio. This is the best performance of the night.I think she (Adele) looks very nice too.

Radiohead - I know of them but I'm not that familiar with their songs. Hmmm...interesting performance. I did like the band aspect.

T.I./Justin Timberlake - I had high hopes for this one....Justin is a great performer but T.I. sounded off beat. I like T.I.(he's a cutie) but I don't LOVE him. The chorus is the best part of this performance and song.

Neyo/Jamie Foxx/Remaining Members of the Four Tops - Now I love the Four Tops and Smokey but I'm just not sure how I feel about this. I like the tribute aspect of it because that was a wonderful group. I will have to give this 2 thumbs up because I LOVE the songs they did and Smokey still has IT!

Neil Diamond - I have to respect him for the amazing artist he is but I'm not feeling this performance at all. It is just boring to me.

BB King/John Mayer - Nice little tribute.

Lil Wayne/Alan/Robin Thicke - I'm glad he chose this song instead of one of his ignorant songs. I think Robin Thicke is awkward. This was actually one of the best performances of the night. (Not better than Sugarland/Adele though) The piano solo at the end was hot! Oh, and the band and dancers! Excellent.

Robert Plant/Alison Krauss - Why have I never heard of them before? Kind of boring performance but I liked to song so I might have to try to find their album.

Stevie Wonder - You shouldn't get to perform again after that foolishness with The Jonas Brothers.

Awards:
Best Male Pop Vocal: John Mayer....I like him, plus, I didn't consider some of those other nominees "pop".
Best Rap Album: Lil Wayne...no surprise here, I mean he is the hottest thing out right now. I'm just glad he didn't get up there and say anything crazy!
Album of the Year: Robert Plant & Alison Krauss....who? really? I guess the album must be very good since it won?


Tamara's Train of Thought:
-M.I.A. is entirely too pregnant to be out there on the stage. She looked like she might go into labor at any moment. What does she have on? Is that a bathing suit? I can't take it.
-I like this black & white thing...I still think Lil' Wayne is crazy.
-Is it just me or are these performances lacking this year?
-Jack Black is married?
-How are you the Rock and Roll Jesus but you in the pop category?
-And down goes another joke
-So is Beyonce not here tonight? boo :(
- I'm getting sleepy and this is getting boring, I might not make it through the end, not like anyone is going to actually read this anyway!
-What Samuel? He is forever yelling!
-Jay-Z needs to cut his hair too! UGH.
-Obama won a Grammy?
-blah, blah, blah!
-I love the Four Tops! They have some wonderful songs. Aww, the remaining member can't really sing anymore :(
-Where is Christina Aguilera? Didn't she have a new single out late last year?
-I will definitely be watching Harper's Island!
-Do they always have a bunch of old people perform at the Grammy's?
-DANG a lot of people died this past year!
-LOL @ Lil' Wayne dancing all around the stage talking about "feet don't fail me now"
-Why do rap artists have to bring up about 30 people when they win an award? You don't see country artists doing stuff like that.
-I like Zooey, she's so cute.
-LMAO @ them cutting on the wrap it up music on the Album of the Year winners, they should get to talk as long as they want.

You might need to hang out with more white people. I have heard about Alison Kraus at least once a month since I've been here. Go figure.

I hang out with lots of white people, we just don't listen to music when we do! I'm going to have to go ask my white friends about this Kraus person, LOL.
