Grammys Reax


Random thoughts, having watched 95 percent of the show …

• Roberta Flack can still sing, but her plastic face doesn’t move. Literally, it does not move • Taylor Swift is great, and I’m thrilled she won Best Album because the CD rocks. But Taylor Swift with Stevie Nicks—no good • Maxwell is Marvin Gaye: 2010 • Did anyone really need to hear Bon Jovi do Livin’ On a Prayer for the 593,213,432nd time? • Hall & Oates didn’t win. Bummer. • For my money, Dead and Gone by T.I. and Justin Timberlake was the year’s best song. Won nothing, but an epic tune. • Who the f*** invited Ricky Martin? • Placido Domingo presented an award to Rihanna. She didn’t even look at him, and uttered nary a word. You’re a 21-year-old pop star who, if all the stars align, will be doing Vegas variety shows in 10 years. Show some respect to a legend • Strong, strong showing from Eminem, who remains a lyrical phenomenon • When LL Cool J is being introduced as “the star of NCIS …” well, the world has exploded. • What’s not to like about Mos Def? • Usher is wearing sunglasses indoors. Why? • Pearl Jam did a Target commercial. What the hell? darryl-hall-and-john-oates-rolling-stone-no-439-january-1985-photographic-print-c13021018• Fergie has a tremendous voice. She really does. But the Black Eyed Peas suck, and in the not-too-distant future their fans will look back and agree with me. • Beyonce absolutely, positively butchered Alanis Morissette’s You Oughta Know. I like B, but a pop princess can’t sing that tune. It has to be done with venomous anger. • Flipped to the Pro Bowl for 8 seconds. This game shouldn’t exist. Nobody plays hard. •

  1. I must agree that Dead and Gone is song of the year. Maxwell=Prince..
    and I was hoping somehow Kanye would have jumped on stage and grabbed the mic from Taylor Swift again ..listening to her tonight was painful at 8 yr old daughter couldn’t understand why it was Taylor singing but not sounding like Taylor..i felt sorry for the guy sitting behind Gaga. Eminem was spitting VENOM…he had that look and they nailed it!!
