Geez, there's like nine that haven't been announced. They need three hours for this show? (It isn't even ON in my half of the country yet! I've heard of "video delay" but *this* is ridiculous, ba dum bum)

I guess I shouldn't spoil anything if you don't wanna know just yet. I'll see you tomorrow

The show started off great with Prince and Beyonce, and the Beatles tribute. It kept going strong until Martina McBride sang that bland, inoffensive, adult-contemporary pablum, then Alicia Keys sang that bland, inoffensive, adult-contemporary Luthar Vandross song, then they wheeled out Celene Freaking Dion and Richard Marx to sing yet another bland, inoffensive, adult-contemporary song from Luthar.

Killed the show's momentum dead. They couldn't pick an up-tempo Vandross song for Alicia to sing?

The Theme tonight seems to be "Music without Borders".

Sting and Sean Paul
Beyonce and Prince
Foo Fighters and that Blues dude (Fantastic, somehow reminded my of Meat Loaf...am I off on that one?)
The funk segment ruled all.

Celine Dion's mic problem is so WWE'ish...ha!

edit: Ok...Outkasts was amazing....just amazing. That stole the show....

The show was pretty decent this year. Beyonce tied Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, and Norah Jones' record of 5 grammy's. That was pretty good. I wasn't crazy about her second performance of the night though. Nice song, but she KILLED it with that rifting. Good, that annoyed me.

Love the funk segment, especially since Maurice White is back with EWF. Despite that comment, I asssure you all that I'm 26.

Nice to see Jack Black appear tonight.

Christina Aguilara also overdid it with the rifting. God, it was annoying. And was that a wig on her head or her actual hair? That was horrible.

I agree with Gavintzu. Somewhere around the Luther Vandross tribute, it died. I think because they actually sang the complete songs and not parts. It was too long, and Celine's mic problems were odd.

Outkast deserved everything they won. It's funny that for songs from a CD I bought all the way back in October are still popular and I never grow tired of them.

My personal highlight of the show was 50 Cent crashing the stage when Evanescence(sp?) won for Best New Artist. Was it appropriate? Hell no... But personally, I think that he should have won that award. Not because I don't like Evanescence, because I love them, but I thought that 50 Cent had a better year. But, Best New Artist was also given to Men In Hats and Milli Vanilli, so... I guess I shouldn't care so much.

Am I crazy, or was that actually a pretty decent Grammys? Performances were all generally good, none of the awards made me go "What the hell?" and none of the winners acted like particularly large asses. If you just cut out 50 Cent's retardation and the suit whining about downloading music, when we almost have a perfect show, folks.

Yay for Outkast and the White Stripes!

How sad is it when they had the head of NARAS up there, I immediately say "great, he'd better not be whining about file sharing"... and then he DOES it? Also, that PSA is officially the single least informed and most offensively incorrect one I've ever seen.

Started watching it just at the end of Beyonce's bit. Certainly seemed to pick up with Earth, Wind and Fire, Big Boi, Robert Randolph (I'm'a have to buy their CD's) and George Clinton y P-Funk. If your ass was not moving, please consult a physician, as you may be suffering from rigor mortis.

Socks: That was Chick Corea. Don't know that he really added anything to the song, but it's not like he's going to fade into Bolivion because of it.

Ticamo: Yeah, the bit with 50 was good. Although we all know what the real high point of that award is. Evanescence will now officially have no career, thereby freeing up other talented or even semi-talented performers to get what they deserve.

I missed most of the final half since I had to take a friend home. Which meant I missed a good chunk of the stuff I was looking out for. More specifically the whole funk performance. I've always been an Earth, Wind, and Fire fan. I'm moreso disappointed after hearing about Maurice White being back performing with them.

How about that White Stripes performance? that was rocking.

It seems Justin had a good night too picking up two Grammy's and i'm gonna admit it, that was a kickass performance he had. The guy's on fire. I'm also happy to see the Neptunes pickup Producer(s) of the Year. About time.

And of course the two Ev wins plus the Avril and 50 shutouts made the night all the much better. ("suck it long and suck it hard, Trebek")

The only down point was Michelle Branch losing Best Female Rock Vocal....to Pink.

I gotta agree, the Luther Vandross tributes did kill the momentum just a tad bit. I don't know if it's just me, but it seemed like the show was packed with more performances than previous years. Again, it could just be me.

I couldn't disagree more. The piano sounded disjointed and out of context with the rest of the song...

Incidentally, do the Grammys need to be so predictable as to know that the dead win from beyond the grave whenever they are nominated?

Last night I missed the Grammys, Uncle Paul and his band performed Mary Had a Little Lamb by farting into a kazoo. It was for my nephews birthday, my vision isn't too good, but I don't feel cheated.

This was the only song I caught (Pro Bowl was keeping my interest) and I have to agree with Grimis on this one, it sounded like the guy was playing the piano independent of what was going on in the Foo Fighters song. also, gg outkast

Hardly. Justin fuckin' Timberlake beat George Harrison and Warren Zevon for whatever he won on air that he didn't deserve.

Only Justin THE MAN Timberlake can overcome the AWESOME MAGNETIC POWER OF DYING to win the awards that a man of his TALENT and STATURE so RICHLY deserve! BIG UPS TO JT THE MAN

(More likely, the death vote was split - that's what happens when you upset the balance of nature by nominating TWO dead guys!)

What exactly did 50 Cent do when he got up there? I left the room and came back RIGHT when he was walking off the stage.

It's hard to say...The cameras didn't really seem to catch anything other than him making a lap around Evanescence as they were accepting the award...Whatever he did though, it was terribly inappropriate.

50 just sort of decided he needed to go personally congratulate Evanescence, see how hot Amy Lee is in person from up close, and laugh at the guy who left the band.

And also, in terms of the living (well, sort of living) beating the dead, Luther did beat out Warren Zevon for "Song of the Year". This could also be attributed to the power of Richard Marx though.

That was the worst dress of the night, though.

Also, man, how awesome was Luther? I actually got misty watching his taped message. He better make it all the way back or I may no longer be able to believe in THE POWER OF LOVE/LOVE POWER.

So, did Justin pay for those things his mom had popping out of that dress?

I've heard better Beatles renditions at my local dive bar on Karokee Night. That was really brutal, not to mention they are singing 'I saw her standing there', and Dave Matthews sings "I saw her dancing there". That group must have looked good on paper.
