The show was like it is every year. A few fantastic musical numbers, more than a few average musical numbers, and too many fashion statements.
I thought Beyoncé did a great opener. My worry with starting on such a high note was that the show can only go downhill from there. And for the most part it did. Pink did what she did last year, and I again found myself wondering 'how the hell does she do it?' Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr disappointed - my theory is that CBS wanted to save their best stuff for the special they're showing on the Beatles in the coming weeks. Macklemore's thing with the weddings didn't do it for me. Sure a lot of people cried during this performance, I didn't buy it. But my favourite number from last nights Grammys was the show Daft Punk put on with Stevie Wonder. I just wish I could say the same for the ridiculous outfits they wore!
I don't know what it is about the Grammys and fashion, but it tends to bring out the weirdest of weird. Nothing personal because I'm sure if these artists wanted to they could easily get dolled up and blinged out. But they don't. I'm not sure why, maybe it has to do with 'connecting' with today's youth and promoting the fact that you should always be yourself. I dunno, I'm old-fashioned I guess, because you'd never catch me showing up to an awards show in robot helmets and jump suits. I save mine for weddings.
