Was thrilled that U2 did the opening number.
I think that Ray Romano would of done a better job of hosting.
Edge getting the spa pass was hilarious. I think he was surprised.
Britney looked more classy, then trashy.
The worst dressed were The Dixie Chicks.
Thought it was great to hear Edge and Adam speak.
And I thought the show would never end. Three and a half hours long.

That "Lady Smarmy" bit was the worst piece of shit ive seen in a long time. What were they shrieking about??? The only word i recognized was "poo-poo"!!! BARF!!!!
Alicia Keyes was one of the most ungrateful winners ive seen in awhile. AShe didnt appear to give a rats ass that she one. She looked so bored, and not in th least surprised.
Michale Green WAS an embarrassment. Big time! But what else would you expect?

Look...look what you've done to me...You've made me poor and infamous, and I thank you...

My name is MISS MACPHISTO...I'm tired and i want to go HOME...

"Well you tell...Bonovista,that i said hello and that my codename is Belleview" - Bono before opening night of Anaheim Elevation concert

Well tonight thank God it's them, instead of you...

do not despair, princess, as Sade did indeed win for best pop album, which I thought was very cool

My thoughts....

1. GREAT performance of Walk On - still my fav cut from the album

2. Jon Stewart did suck. Billy Crystal or no please

3. Agree about Brittany Spears. While the hair was a little too big, I thought that, for a change, she looked "pretty."

4. The girl that danced with the N'SYNC lead singer during that debacle with NELLY was HOTTTTT.

5. Keys is overrated, but I thought her performance was pretty good.

6. Even though I'm U2 all the way to grave, I think Dave Matthews should have won best rock song over Elevation. We lucked up there, got jobbed on Album of the Year.

7. Emmylou Harris can sing!

8. Mary J. Blidge can too!!

9. Happy Nelly Furtado and Coldplay bagged something

10. Bob Dylan is an embarrassment to himself and his past, and has been for several years now. No more performances PLEASE!!

11. Overall, 4 out of 8 ain't too bad. And though I hate to admit it, sometimes even I wish Bono would shut up.

My thoughts:

1. Walk On was amazing- I especially loved the choir singing the Hallelujahs, and Bono's voice was excellent.

2. It was great that U2 was sitting in the first row so there could be lots of camera shots of them. Plus, Edge was able to get the spa treatment from Ray Romano.

3. I'm a big fan of Jon Stewart and the Daily Show, but I must admit that he's not a very good Grammy host. I don't know if he writes the material or if it's the responsibility of other people, but it wasn't that great. I did love the Creed joke, though!

4. I thought Mary J. Blige's performance was very impressive, and I'm not a big hip hop / R&B fan.

5. "I'm Like a Bird" did get on my nerves back when it was played all the time, but I really enjoyed Nelly Furtado's performance. I'm glad she won an award. I think she was definitely the best dressed female.

6. Speaking of fashion, Sheryl Crow's outfit looked like something Christina Aguilera would wear (and that's not a compliment).

7. I felt bad for India Arie. She should've won at least one award after being nominated in so many categories.

8. Do the winners know that they're going to win in advance? It seemed like some winners weren't suprised, and U2 definitely seemed to know they were going to win Record of the Year. They goofed off to an extent during their first 3 acceptance speeches, but when it was time to accept ROTY they actually thanked specific people and were more together (well, besides Bono's ramblings ). Also, it was strange that U2 was backstage with India Arie when the nominees were being read. It seemed like they knew they were going to win and had been told to go backstage in preparation. Very bizarre- it kind of spoiled the award.
