Did anyone watch the grammys?

I didn't see a thread about them here or in B&C. Did anybody watch?

Wikipedia has a list of all the awards given this year. I counted 109. I counted 7 in the telecast. 7 of 109. Now, I'm not saying all 109 should be televised, that would be ridiculous. But, like, maybe 15-20? The televised awards were Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Record Of The Year, Best New Artist, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Best Rock Album, and Best Comedy Album. Everything else non-televised. It was mostly performances. Who?

Lady Gaga & Elton John - "Poker Face"/"Speechless"/"Your Song"
Green Day with the cast of American Idiot - "21 Guns"
Beyoncé - "If I Were a Boy"/"You Oughta Know"
Pink - "Glitter in the Air"
Black Eyed Peas - "Imma Be"/"I Gotta Feeling"
Lady Antebellum - "Need You Now"
Jamie Foxx, T-Pain, Slash & Doug E. Fresh - "Blame It"
Zac Brown Band & Leon Russell - "America the Beautiful"/"Dixie Lullaby"/"Chicken Fried"
Taylor Swift & Stevie Nicks - "Today Was a Fairytale"/"Rhiannon"/"You Belong with Me"
Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Smokey Robinson, Carrie Underwood & Usher - "Earth Song" (Michael Jackson tribute)
Bon Jovi & Jennifer Nettles - "We Weren't Born to Follow"/"Who Says You Can't Go Home"/"Livin' on a Prayer"
David Foster, Mary J. Blige & Andrea Bocelli - "Bridge over Troubled Water"
Dave Matthews Band - "You and Me"
Maxwell & Roberta Flack - "Pretty Wings"/"Where Is the Love"
Jeff Beck & Imelda May - "How High the Moon" (Les Paul tribute)
Drake, Eminem, Lil Wayne & Travis Barker - "Drop the World"/"Forever"

So, 7 awards and those performances. You be the judge.

Here's the wikipedia page if you care who won/lost: 52nd Grammy Awards - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

i think the fact Use Somebody won record of the year sums up the reason there was no thread.

It was being discussed in several places around the board during the telecast.

This is a big part of why I don't watch the Grammys.

Well, and because there's rarely any artists I like enough to bother watching.

I'm kind of starting to appreciate the grammys more as a concert experience where they stop in between to award people in the field, and honor those who have (had) prolific careers/passed on.

Tigga Swift dropped and broke one of her Grammys in the press room after the show. Fucking awesome!

That first picture is hilarious.

It's okay, Tay-Tay. You can dry your tears with your other Grammys!

This is the first time in years I haven't watched the Grammys. It's nice to know I didn't miss much.

Wow. I didn't watch this year, but I sure would have loved to have seen footage of Tyler Swift dropping the Grammy.. Read somewhere that Tyler Swift sounded awful during her performance, kinda off key.
