As for the show itself, Kanye with Daft Punk was the highlight for me. He had glowing sunglasses and a digital jacket. And Daft Punk, of course, looked like astronaut robots. And the song Kanye did afterwards, for his mom, brought him and just about every person in the room to tears.
And did you see the look on Amy Winhouse’s face when it was announced she won Album of the Year? She totally cried and it looked like maybe, just maybe, it was going to be enough to snap her back to reality so she can get her shit together. Maybe. She won five Grammys in all.
There was no Britney, no Michael Jackson, and a weird Beatles thing. There was also a really ugly dress worn by Alicia Keys—it made her boobs look really awkward. Also, a guy with a paisley guitar (Brad Paisley) sang about checking girls for ticks. Ew.
Jerry Lee Lewis proved he was old, Little Richard proved he was a machine that never ages, and there was no big ending, there was no climax, but there were plenty of snarky and funny comments in the liveblogging of the show (thanks to everyone who joined me!).
Overall, they weren’t the best Grammys ever (they never are), but they didn’t suck. Foo Fighters with the Zeppelin Orchestra was pretty good (and Jason Bateman introduced them, no less!), and “Hey There Delilah” didn’t win a thing. Hooray to all that, I say.
