Call me crazy

Okay guys, call me temporarily crazy... but there were two performances I actually liked last night on the Grammys.

Good things:
1. Lady GaGa & Elton John's medley of "Speechless" and "Your Song" - I thought this was really cool. And I'm the first to profess my hatred of Lady Gagme. But for whatever reason, this performance got me.
2. Beyonce's "If I Were a Boy" and "You Oughta Know" (Alanis cover) - I gotta rep my hometown girl. But really, this performance just rules:





Now onto the bad:
1. The autotune was crampin' my style.
2. The winners. I mean, really?
3. Taylor Swift & Stevie Nicks. I had known about that for a few days (Stevie was supposed to be a "surprise") and Stevie is my girl crush, but ohemgee. That was bad. I think the general consensus was that Taylor was off key for "Rhiannon" and couldn't really get into it, but yeah. I don't know. I don't think those two voices are meant to sing together. Just really awkward for me. But Waddy was holdin' it down alright! :)

Thoughts?

Sounds like the music industry has been wheeled into the trauma unit and the attending physician is prepping the defibrillator paddles.

I haven't watched the Grammys in years--the musicians I care about aren't recognized, except maybe in that "alternative country" category where Lucinda Williams, Lyle Lovett, Emmylou Harris and Steve Earle live.

I do agree that the performances were so amazing, and that's why I regret a bit for not having watched it, but looking up the music being awarded, I agree with Whizkid !
