Ok so I caved.. I read this thread. I thought U2 was up for a grammy? You guys arent even talking about them!

And I swear if Coldplay beat U2 for something I will eat all of their brains. I dont like them much as it is

BTW I agree about No Doubt's performance not being up to par. I do think Gwen looked great and it was good.. but they sounded SO much better when I saw them in concert last November.

And who the hell is Norah Jones? And why did she get so many grammies?? This is the first time I've heard of her.

I like that they played their protest-y () song, Politik, instead of In My Place or something.

I was. I am.
I'll find someone on this campus who has it on tape if it's the last thing I do.

I really like Norah Jones, but I'm not so sure about her sweeping everything. The Boss definitely deserved more recognition. First album with the band in how long? And a great album at that. Norah Jones's album is basically a collection of nice songs, whereas The Rising is an ALBUM with a clear concept and a progression from beginning to end.

Maybe the execs and all that were afraid of giving it to Bruce because it dealt so directly with 9/11. Maybe they didn't want to seem like they were doing it out of patriotic duty or something...I dunno.

So who did the 'oo-oo-oos' in the middle of London Calling? I'm guessing Grohl.

isn't the grammy's voted on by the musicians and their peers and not CBS execs?

Ooh, don't tell my sister that...

That Clash tribute was really cool-all the guys did a fantastic job!

I'm surprised Bruce didn't win anything last night, considering all the hype I was hearing at the pre-show and everything. It would've been nice if he'd won something. Eh. Oh, well.

My thoughts on the show:

No Doubt seemed a little over the top, especially with the people swinging from the ropes. I don't think the audience was feeling it.

It hurts to see Faith Hill get up there and totally ruin a beautiful song by a man (Angie Aparo) who has such a beautiful voice and such great talent. Angie would have sounded much better at least. I think I'm the only Angie fan on the board, but I wanted to get that off my chest anyway.

POLITIK! Woohoo! Although I will say that I wish Chris had been a little less spastic on the piano and gotten a more beautiful sound out of himself and the piano, considering they were playing with the philharmonic. Good stuff, though. Glad to hear they won what they were up for.

The clash tribute rocked. I had no idea Elvis Costello was such a punk rocker!

Could have done without Norah Jones winning everything. That song does nothing for me. I find it incredibly boring, as someone else said.

Did anyone else feel like the awards given on television were lacking a little? Where were the rock awards? Only one rap award during the broadcast? Perhaps I'm a weirdo, but next year I'd say more awards and less crappy performances.
