    The Grammys

    I thought were well done. Did they usually go without a host? My apologies to Todd but I'd swear they shoot Lady Gaga up with one drug to get her going and use a cool down formula when she's done. Did you see that catatonic, glazed gaze on her face? Good dual performance though. I'm sure there were a million squeals of delight when dual pianos rolled out, some even from females.
    And the truth shall set you free.

    I'm a bit pissed at the Grammys for obvious reasons. LMAO! I haven't been this disappointed since they didn't give Album of the Year to Madonna for Ray of Light.

    But in the end, it's only an awards show, it doesn't take away from what makes a true creative talent.

      Beyonce over Gaga? How scary IS Kanye anyway? Pokerface instead of Bad Romance? Imma let you finish, but that was a travesty. Loved Gaga and Elton.

        No, Beyoncé is cool and has been in the business for years now, but Taylor Swift is way overrated; this is a sentiment held by even many Country fans I know. I heard some of Fearless and the album is fucking boring. Reba McEntire still puts out better music than Taylor Swift.

        Having said that, I do believe The Fame deserved Album of the Year, as it was far more critically acclaimed and commercially successful. Pokerface was arguably the biggest international hit of 2009 and it was passed over by two songs I don't think were more deserving.

          Only got to watch the first part and then some some friends came over so we had to be "polite". I have to say that opening number with Lady GaGa blew me away. She has a great voice, and Elton is always great.

          I think Beyonce is so beautiful, but Taylor Swift doesn't show me much.

          All that talent under the same roof, is amazing. Can you imagine the jam?

            when you say talent, I assume you're not including Jamie Foxx's appearance. What the hell was that?!?

              I missed that part, Van. Sounds like it's a good thing, huh?

                OK...you got a diehard Taylor Swift fan here...I'm so proud of her....she accomplished so much this year....to be that young with that much pure talent...awesome!

                I will say that Lady GaGa just is not my type of music, but she and Elton did an outstanding job on that duet...yeah!!! Guess it is different strokes for different folks...and I will say that just by watching that, I will keep my ear peeled to see what Lady GaGa sings next...at least I am sitting up and taking notice a bit...lol.

                congratulations to all the winners and nominees!!!

                  I was being nice, not mentioning Taylor. Stevie Nicks singing backup on Rhiannon = another travesty! Not a huge Beyonce fan, no hatred, just don't think she holds a candle to Gaga. Gaga, spectacle aside, girlfriend's got pipes. Reminds me of Cyndi Lauper in the olden days. I'm kind of burned out on Pokerface at this point. (Except Johnny Weir skating to it, could watch that all day.)

                    When Taylor Swift was singing with Stevie Nicks, it reminded me of American Idol as she was 'off' in a few places ... I was waiting for Simon to kick in. LOL

                    I enjoyed Jamie Foxx, Lil Wayne and Eminem together!

                    Of course Lady GaGa and Elton were tops too! Always enjoy Beyonce (who by the way, the tabloids are saying she's put on pounds ... sheesh! I'd kill to look like her!)

                      I winced a few times when Taylor sang with Stevie ..... she was flatter than a pancake thru most of the song but my guess is she was nervous .... maybe???? .... sharing the stage with royalty would be pretty intimidating and she is only 19 after all !!

                      Love Gaga alot and the pairing with Elton was perfect .... I just wish everyone would cover up just a tad more ... Pink was amazing but her pubes were sparkling ... holy toledo .... guess I'm showing my age !!

                        Nahh. Nervous or not, Taylor can't sing, and she doesn't even have the charisma and showmanship on stage to give a half decent performance to make up for having little singing talent...at the Grammys or anywhere! (I didn't see the Grammys but have seen enough of her elsewhere)

                        Seriously, I have no idea what people are buying into (aside from the cuteness and sweetness factor), but taylormania has worn thin!

                          I watched most of the Grammys, I love Beyonce and Lady Gaga. I missed Pinks performance but heard she showed her butthole when she was was twirling around. I'm not a fan of LiL Wayne (don't know one song) but I loved his perfomance with Eminimen and Drake.

                            Whew! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought Taylor paled in comparison to Stevie in that duet. Taylor does what she well and she's obviously a gifted songwriter, but she doesn't hold a candle to the great Stevie Nicks.

                              I don't mean to offend her fans, but her style is just bland to me. She's a cute girl and gifted in what she does, but she doesn't strike me as star quality. She reminds me of many of those winners of American Idol, yet to her credit she did write all of her own songs. She'll be successful in music because she can even write for other people and there's a lot of money to be made in simply writing the songs.
