Speaking of the Grammys

[Music] Last night's Grammy Awards on CBS was the third-least-watched of the telecast's 50-year history--even with the possibility of a Kanye West loser meltdown (no dice, he won). The show was so damn dull, I say it should have earned at least second place, but that's just me.

John Saltas disagrees (to put in mildly), but I say the only highlight of last night's Grammys was Amy Winehouse's live-and-loose-from-London medley of "I'm No Good/Rehab," video below. Dig the look in her eyes when she sings the "Rehab" chorus, priceless.



Have a favorite performance/moment from the show? Think Amy Winehouse sucked? Comment away ... (Bill Frost)

  1. I thought Kanye's performance was pretty impressive. And seeing the inside of the Daft Punk pyramid was pretty cool because we got to see the intricacies of their random button-pushing instead of imagining it.

    But then again, I'm usually attracted to shiny things.

    Also, it's understandable that Foo Fighters have become the go-to rock act for prestigious ceremonies, but why do they always have high-profile accompaniment? Can't they just play a song without Queen, Led Zepplin or some huge fucking orchestra?

    That said, The Pretender is their best single since "The Colour and the Shape" days.

  2. Sounds proportionate to the quality of music being produced in the prior 50 years.

  3. I missed the Grammys. But all I can say is yay for Herbie Hancock, who channeled Joni Mitchell and won big last night. I love both of them--both were instrumental in my music-loving youth. Still love Herbie--he never stops growing. So as these awards show go, I'm very happy with that win. (Holly Mullen)
