I am not much of an enthusiast when it comes to awards shows and I tend to get the Grammys, Oscars, MTV Music Awards and whatever other shows there are all confused. Even so, last night I felt compelled to turn on the tube and watch the Grammys. Maybe it was because of the ad I saw promising an amazing performance by Eminem and Dr. Dre, or maybe it was because I wanted to enjoy the new surround sound I had just installed (pretty sure it was the latter), but I sat down and watched.
Immediately I was impressed. Instead of having to sit through 2.5 hours of celebrities talking about global warming and other none-sense I enjoyed a full show of minimally interrupted entertainment. This is something that is completely out of the norm these days and I loved every minute of it. While I don’t agree with the actual winners of the awards (Lady Antebellum sucks and who the f— is Esperanza Spalding!!!???) I did enjoy the Grammys overall.
So here are a few clips from some of my favorite performances in case you missed them:
Mumford and Sons, The Avett Brothers and Bob Dylan. Please ignore Bob Dylan as he ran out of cough drops just before this performance. This is real music people.
Cee Lo and Gwyneth Paltrow (whaat!!??) in Forget You. FYI his costume is making fun of Elton John. Awesome performance, I was cracking up the whole time.
Bruno Mars and BOB. While I don’t really like this guy I thought this was an awesome rendition of a rather annoying song.
