The Granny's love dead people. Ray Charles hadn't won an award since the 60s. He dies, and now they love him.

I was glad that a guy who writes, sings and plays his own songs won a Grammy. I'll put John Mayer up to anyone on the radio at the moment, which isn't saying much.

Everyone loves Ray Charles, but why give an award for rehash.

Gwen Stefani used to be bearable with her talented band No Doubt but after that hip hop fiddler on the roof tune I can now say she really, really sucks. That is such a cheap bogus way to get a hit.

U2- love them but Bono was definitely not on his game, Edge had way too much of the strings effect on his guitar and overall, I just don't think "Sometimes" is one of their better songs.

Green Day- Boy are they going to get a load of shit from their fans. They behaved like rock stars last night, hugging their agents, singing hippy songs in a singalong, using pyrotechnics,
being extremely well behaved and spewing out lamely ironic catch phrases like "rock n roll can be dangerous and fun at the same time"

J-Lo should be angry that her husband sang on key because it made her sound really bad.

Alicia Keys- I'm not a big fan but she has talent and sounded good.

Jamie Foxx- That actor sang better than most of the singers up there

I didn't see the rest except the end of the Beatles song where they changed John Lennon's words. That's a no- no in my book.

Oh Yeah I forgot Franz Ferdinand- the hot new Scottish alt pop messiahs. Can't say I was very impressed but I'll keep an open mind if noone else steps up and becomes great.

I just read that last nights show was the second lowest rated Grammy's ever in terms of viewers.

Sounds about right.

Oh
Yeah, that's pretty much my take on 'em too. I don't think I've watched an award show of any kind in well over a decade....

I agree with Bono, it was one of the best ever. It must have been the slow start that turned people off. I heard some say they gave up on it because it was so boring to begin with. The good stuff came later. Anyone who didn't see U2 or Green Day perform truly missed something. And Across the Universe was classic, a mini Live Aid. Too bad for those who didn't stick around.

no, i didn't miss anything by not seeing green day.

what the hell's up with all this green day love anyway? so they write an album that's somewhat "bold" by taking an "unconventional" stance against american policies.

WHO CARES?!?!

that doesn't change the fact that they're as boring as just about any of the other lame bands that were at the show.

mr brau, thanks again for your ever-so-timely snide remark, but you know damn well i was talking about u2 prior to 2000.
