Grammys thoughts thread...

Amazing that U2 won album of the year, I thought they wouldn't give it to him.

I think the critics really love U2.

Vertigo wins, Sometimes... wins, I wish CBOL did, but can't win them all can you?

I'm gonna say Sometimes... sticks around for a few more tours. Elevation and Beautiful Day has so far!

Great night for our boys!

I thought Bono's performance on One was a bit off, in fact I said it was "terrible" and my friend said "but I thought you love him?" and I said "yeah, so I can tell when it's not sounding good". Luckily, she said it sounded good to her and she has no interest in U2 whatsoever. I like how MJB performs the song, but maybe it would be better if she did it alone. I feel like it would've been just as good without U2

Some interesting comments made by Bono in the first acceptance speech, but very sincere nonetheless. The circus reference was a little hard to follow there for a moment. Anyone want to give it a shot at explaining the elephant dung reference? Anywho... still just love Bono and the band. When looking at their music and lyrics there is just nobody to compare them with in my book.

I loved the Edge's acceptance speech, so sincere too! And watching him play with Dr. John and all the others at the end for New Orleans musicians, WOW. You could see he was just beaming!

Adam SPOKE!!!! yeah........i'm still trying to get over that one!! That was amazing! And then it seems to me Larry got cut off!! How could they!!!!

CONGRATS U2!!! You keep rocking the world, and certainly rock mine!! Can't wait to hear what's coming next. Your music inspires me every day.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

great night overall. I'm glad u2 won, didnt expect them to sweep like that, but thought they didn't have that tough competition.

Last year I kind of wanted Green Day to win as their album was great, or new bands like Killers or Franz F. get some hype, but this year was great.

As I agree that band was a little off, I think people will regard their's as one of the best of the night. M. Blige was incredible and very emotional, great great voice. Seeing her just get so into the song like that gave me chills...

wasnt really in love with Lillywhite's production on HTDAAB, so I can't say I care that he won....

any videos of tonights events up?

No it was, U2 were the performers in the video and did have a small hand in its production from what I have seen of the making of the video.

What a great night for the boys, I'm so happy for them.
Sadly, many people is not happy and the opinions all over the web are not so good, the big part of the people is calling the Grammy's "the U2 awards" and a big joke.

I think this is a good sign for U2 fans. I think this cements the fact that U2 are on top of the mainstream, so now they can use that power to fuck up the mainstream once again.

Through out U2's career, they have been bashed by many other people because of their massive popularity and success. When your as big and successful as U2 has been, the top band in the world for 19 years now, your naturally a target for many people.

I can't believe U2 won 5 Grammy's tonight!!! The most shocking was Album Of The Year!!!! This proves that they will be around for a long time still. Very disrespectfull for cutting the speeches short Mr. Grammy President. Thank You U2 and congratulations!!!
