Sorry to be grumpy middle aged woman again.

Isn't that the Grammys target demographic? ;)

I fell asleep watching the Grammys...I made it to the first commercial break before losing consciousness.

Taylor Swift is definitely easy on the eyes. It's a shame her songs are so banal, but at least she doesn't dress like a crack-whore like so many of the other pop tarts out there. Every time I see Rihanna I want to throw up.

Why, oh why, do the Grammys stick with the insufferably bland and smug LL Cool J as host? It's complete bollocks. He's part of the reason the Grammys are such a snooze.

Year after year, it's becoming clear that most of today's pop culture is filtered through the worst of ghetto tastes and sensibilities.

I am watching the repeat telecast, as I write this. Taylor Swift sounded flat. The Eagles sounded surprisingly good. That new kid Tori something, sounded really good. Adele, well, all I can say is yikes! :wacko: 

Waiting now, for the tributes to David Bowie and Lemmy.

I'll definitely be changing the channel for a few minutes when the Canadian Beaver comes on! Sheesh!

Best Rock Performance: Alabama Shakes—“Don’t Wanna Fight”

 The Eagles and Hollywood Vampires were the only rock bands I seen there last night.:rolleyes:

Wow! Lady Gaga seriously had an off night! Again, as someone mentioned, the songs chosen for the tribute were fantastic, but the performance, well, the less said about it, the better! :unsure: 

I really loved the B.B King tribute though! 

Edited to add: The Lemmy tribute was definitely the highlight of the Grammys, this year, IMO!

Bowie tribute awesome. I have always liked Lady Gaga.

Now just saw a commercial from Church of Scientology. I guess there is no shame.

She has a great voice.  I missed it but have it on tape.  I watched Jackson Browne do a great job on Take it Easy but I felt they should have done more for Glen Frey.  They can shove the Grammys and their Rap shit.  Don Henley is better than any of those people on and I have no interest in most of it.  I will watch Lady Gaga's Tribute  at some point.  I am disappointed that more was not done in memory of Glen Frey

A few of my impressions from last night:  Gaga's tribute was good, it's almost impossible to do a Bowie tribute - but she made a good attempt with so many different songs/styles.  She could've easily brought the house down with just doing "Heroes" with many images behind her, but she spread it out with style.  The Eagles were alright, don't know what I was expecting, but it seemed like it was short of what they could've done for him.  I can't believe Duff and Matt were there to do a Lemmy tribute, but couldn't show any sort of tribute for Scott Weiland, their singer in Velvet Revolver.  Not saying performing a song in memory - just at least a megaphone on the amp or drum riser.  The rap, etc has taken over this show, which is a shame, and is why I rarely ever watch it anymore.

+1 

Ditto for me. I have in fact nicknamed the show the Rapmy Awards

Just did a quick search on Google with my nickname for the Grammy Awards (Rapmy Awards) and it looks like Google knows what I am talking about! :P

Well Don Henley looked like he was not happy with it.  Like, WTF?  Is this all you can do for Glen Frey?  That is my attitude.  I am not surprised Felder was not there but was not sure.  I thought it was great that Walsh and Timothy B Schmidt were both there, two fabulous musicians.  I really wanted Don Henley to do one song.  Someone should have done a rendition of Lyin Eyes or Tequila Sunrise for Gods sake.  Pure shit is right Strider.

Lady Gaga's Bowie tribute was OK. I hate medleys and would rather hear one or two songs done properly than 10 seconds worth of a dozen songs crammed into 5 minutes. She tried to sing in Bowie's range too and sounded a little odd.

I liked the Glen Frey tribute. I wouldn't be surprised if The Eagles do more with Jackson Browne. Shame Don Felder wasn't invited, but I can't say I'm all that surprised.

Hollywood Vampires were good, not great. At least it was a good band playing real instruments, which for some of these types of shows is getting scarce. I agree with Walter that some sort of nod towards Scott Weiland would have been nice, especially with 2 of his former Velvet Revolver band mates onstage.The Lemmy tribute was very cool, but guitars were messy. 4 guitars aren't needed for Ace Of Spades. 

Luckily, I DVR'd it and skipped over most of the bullshit.
