I thought Christina looked really really ugly during her performance.

Before the show went on air Tool got the grammy in the Best Metal Performance category for the song Schism so all is right with the world tonight.

Ugh...NOW they're ripping on File Sharing?

Excuse me, but CD sales are DOWN since Napster went down. When Napster was popular, sales were UP.

Ugh. I HATE YOU MUSIC INDUSTRY!!!

I think it's cool that "O Brother" won all they did. I didn't mind U2 winning what they did either (well, except beating DMB in that one category).

I didn't understand half of what Bob Dylan mumbled.

Full Grammys Results

"Polka Album: "Gone Polka," Jimmy Sturr."

It's about time. Jimmy Sturr has been getting screwed in the Polka category for years. Good thing his was the only new Polka album released this year.

Fuck. Joe Satriani lost. AGAIN. FUCK. Grammys SUCK BALLS.

Does anybody know the record for times being nominated and not winning? Joe's gotta be close - That's at least 8 or 9 for him. I'll have to look it up. *sigh*.....

I was watching UK lose to Vandy (ugh) and missed most of it. Glad to hear TMBG won. My friend said it was just one of those "receiving awards earlier tonight" dealies.

During a commercial break in the game, I was lucky enough to hear Jon Stewart's line about music being played in the streets for the first time in Afghanistan after their liberation from the Taliban and three days later, even THEY were sick of Creed. I don't mind Creed all that much, but it was pretty funny.

She doesn't have the legs to wear an outfit like that. I didn't realize her legs were so short and stumpy.

Was it just me or did Alicia Keys seem completely stoned?

Come now. It wasn't that bad. Any show where they give the Soggy Bottom Boys a huge chunk of time to perform (that "Siren Song" was just amazing live) followed by the audience giving them a standing ovation is all right in my book.

Let me throw my name in the Kudos-To-TMBG pile.

How about U2 winning Record of the Year two years in a row? I wonder if that`s happened before. Also I noticed all the Song of the Year nominees were actually written or co-written by the performers. What a concept! I wonder if that`s happened before too.

I just hope Alicia's "third grade school play eye glitter look" doesn't catch on amongst the youth of America.

99.99% of the Grammys is "who sold the most records [while targeting an over age 21 audience]". So I normally don't respect it... and it surprises me that they seemingly hit on something decent in India.Arie. I had never heard of her before she was nominated, but she sounds really good.

Yeah, India Arie's album is tight. Too bad she didnt win anything though. I woulda picked her over Alicia Keys.

And in other news, that glitter crap she had on her eyes looked like little rolled up pieces of aluminum foil.

"I didn't understand half of what Bob Dylan mumbled."

I had to go down and see a guy named Mr. Goldsmith
Nasty dirty doublecrossing backstabbing phony I didn't want to have to deal with
But I did it for you, and all you gave me was a smile
Well I cried for you, now it's you're turn to cry a while

DYLAN GOT SCREWED.

Of course, this year's Grammys are irrelevant (much like many years). Next year, it's all about Rush. You know they never won a Grammy? They have Juno awards coming out of their ass, but no Grammys. The most glaring loss was in '80 or '81..."YYZ" lost to "Behind My Camel" by the Police in Best Rock Instrumental. Fucking dumbasses.

The Grammys this year:

  • Pink, once again, looked hot as ever. The 'riotgrrrl look' fits her style and personality pretty well. When will she realize she's gay and start dating me? Christina's hairstyle and such were much better, but she's a STICK. Chicken legs, chicken arms, chicken body. Ugh. I also think she was attempting to look like Gwen Stefani. Pathetic. Gwen=Goddess, Christina=Chicken. Lil' Kim.. I won't touch that. Mya.. Mya Meh-ah. Sort of general all around.

  • I liked Alicia Keyes' glitter. It was very cute. But, she was slightly annoying. I don't think she was high, but she sure doesn't have as much charisma as her music boasts.

  • Bob Dylan is now /purposefully/ slurring all this words to make himself even more unintelligable than before. I think he's trying to mask the fact that he's so old and braindead that he can't remember the words anymore.

  • Billy Joel was smashed off his ass. He was so drunk that he couldn't remember the words either. Tony Bennett couldn't help but laugh at him. Billy's gained some weight, lost his hair and become a sad little washout. It's a shame. I liked his music.

  • Yay for O, Brother Whereart Thou! I'm all for a classic going over big time in the mainstream audiences. The sad thing is, I'm sure that over half of them didn't make the connections. (Even though it was advertised as such.)

  • Dave Matthews Band was marvelous, once again. Train was good, as well. The orchestra on the set with them was a nice touch. But, they'd better be careful not to over-play themselves. Their music is already starting to wear.

  • The main annoyance of the night: The producers/whatever of the show cut everyone's speeches short, even the Album of the Year winners. They were the Album of the Year! They should've had more time to talk and give thanks. No. Instead, they cut everyone's time short so that the BORING coot could come onstage and whine about Napster. He got boos, which was nice. Everyone in the audience looked bored and the only one who probably agreed with him was Celine Dion. [snort] Let the Napster thing go.

  • Michael W. Smith, the once-famed Christian pop-star, crawled out of the depths of his iniquity that lost him his credibility as a 'true Christian' to make an appearance before the masses at the Grammys. Why? Who knows? It was as pointless as the Napster whining. -- He introduced the Christian/gospel, which my roommate, GodEatGod, and I turned the channel to avoid.

  • The show went pretty well, but ended very anti-climactically. It's like, you're having a wonderful session of love-making with your wife/husband/SO and all of a sudden, Alan Jackson comes on the radio, singing about America and God.. and you both lose interest, feeling sickened. Depressing and disappointing, to say the least.
