Just watched the Lady Gaga thing. I'm not a fan, so maybe I'm biased, but that was just straight up garbage. Like some sad Las Vegas act. Live medleys in general suck and this was no exception. Maybe if it had been 3 songs in 6 minutes instead of double the titles in that amount of time, it might have been palatable. Or not.

They clearly needed to pay tribute and yet I can't think of anything they could have done that would have been worthy. An all-star cover of Ziggy Stardust, for example, would have been equally lame.

She did an impersonation of Liza Minelli doing a Bowie tribute.

That would have been much better
tribute to BB King was good, of course K Lamar was strong, T Swift AotY speech was good, basically said Kanye sucks balls

Kendrick's performance made me cry. 30/10.

NPR published an article yesterday about the rise of the overused male falsetto and if it's related to the rise of the man bun?

I thought they sent the DeLorean to pick up 1992 Mike McCready

Man that Kendrick performance was enough to turn me into a committed fan. I've listened to TPAB a few times and really admired it, but it's never clicked for me in a meaningful way. I think I get it now.

Also maybe now that 1989's won everybody can stop talking about it/releasing singles for a breath or two.

Well said! sounded like one of those fucking awful cruise ship cabaret acts, who in gods name thought she would be a good choice to perform a tribute to the one & only!

The only thing I liked about the GaGa performance was the cool visual at the start.

I was at a very loud, raucous party, and the only things the room shut up for were:

Hamilton
Kendrick
Tori Kelly/James Bay (because half the room were huge Tori Kelly fans)

To Pimp A Butterfly is a great album and probably should have won, but it's not like it lost to Steely Dan.

1989 was a huge album, and as good as a pop album can get. I prefer Butterfly, too, but the faux outrage in the media is a little much.
