To discuss Grammy award commentary 2010

Elton John Lady Gaga Grammys 2010After the disappointing day I had with TV (to be discussed tomorrow), I almost forgot the Grammys were on. But Capricorn and I caught them in time, and, as is now tradition, offer you some Grammy commentary. We're already off to a good start tonight, because Chris Brown wasn't arrested just before the show.
  • Lady Gaga opens the show in a sparkly green outfit, with what appears to be the the first-ever case of pubic cleavage.
  • Elton John and Lady Gaga sharing the same stage was memorable, but they looked like they just emerged from a coal mine that uses a drag queen to signal danger instead of a canary.
  • Russell Brandt looks like a terroristic wolfman.
  • Jennifer Lopez emerges in a skin-tight white dress. Actually, she's emerging all over that dress. "She forgot her spanx!"- Capricorn.
  • Simon Baker is Brittish? Ed. note: My international readers point out he's Australian. That makes a little more sense, with that hair and tan.
  • Beyonce is singing "You Oughta Know. Does this mean she slept with Dave Coulier too?!?!?!
  • I get the sense Beyonce dries her hair in the morning by grinding on the floor and thrashing around like Tawny Kitaen.
  • Pink trapeze Grammys 2010Capricorn: "Does Pink have on her trapeze outfit? I've seen this before." No, she wouldn't do that again, I reply. Oops.
  • What do I have to do to GET AWAY FROM MILEY?!?!
  • The Black Eyed Peas looks like the dominatrix version of the Blue Man Group. Ladies and gentlemen, one of the biggest selling groups of the past decade! Let's not forget their dancer outfits, which appear to be made out of cardboard, spray paint and fail.
  • You're playing off Stephen Colbert during his acceptance speech? Really?
  • Jamie Foxx, I ain't hating on you for that opera fake-out- it was funny. Or T-Pain busting out as the conductor. I am a little concerned about the 15-year-old girls in the pit singing along to "Blame It on the Alcohol." Actually, they were doing more singing than T-Pain or Jamie Foxx combined (as Jaimee Foxx said himself, "I'm sorry for the autotune, Jay-Z). Capricorn is impressed Slash came on to play. I'm impressed they were all sober enough to perform.
  • I think that was Katy Perry presenting, but there was no cleavage to identify her. Maybe she was scared Russell would transform if he saw full moons.
  • So what happens when Taylor Swift likes a guy that likes her back? Does she run out of song material? ... It was cool Taylor and Stevie Nicks were both singing "You Belong to Me," but I don't think Stevie was ever "on the bleachers." Under the bleachers, maybe. Casting spells, possibly.
  • I thought my TV was broken. Nope, it's Celine Dion in 3D. I'd prefer my Celine in 1D. Or No-D. And was Usher singing "What about the elephants?" If they would've saved the money they spent on the 3D technology, they could have saved the kids, the rainforests and the freaking elephants. Nice Michael Jackson tribute, though. I still think he's living with Tupac and Biggie somewhere, secretly making albums.
  • Jay-Z Beyonce Solange's son Grammys 2010Based on a fan vote, Bon Jovi has to do Livin on a Prayer. I wish we could done that for Beyonce. I would have chosen "Bills, Bills, Bills" and her her sing it with the original Destiny's Child members. Except she would have to guess who is an original member and who was just a random girl chosen from the audience.
  • Who knew Jay-Z laughs like Fran Drescher?
  • I think Mary J. Blige's face might explode trying to keep up with Andrea Bocelli.
  • Adam Sandler presents Dave Matthews Band: Can I have "People who Reached Their Peak in 1996" Alex? Speaking of the 90s, Ricky Martin!
  • After seeing Roberta Flack, it's weird to think that years from now, I'll watch the Grammys with my kids, and say, "Look, that's Beyonce singing 'Single Ladies,' her old hit. She used to be the biggest star in the world. And you're in for a treat kids. She's still using her famous boob tape! .... It used to look better, kids. Don't be scared."
  • Oh man, Drake, Wayne and Eminem are doing "Forever"! I like this song a little too much for a suburban white kid. Oh, phew. Taylor Swift knows the words, too. I'm safe.
  • CBS, if you're going to have rappers perform, don't censor half the song to cover for a random swear word. That's like blurring out an entire episode of "Jersey Shore" on the off chance J-Woww shows too much cleavage. You know its going to happen, so prepare in advance.
  • It's to the point with Lady Gaga's outfits that you have to treat her like a poorly-behaving child. Give it too much attention (At the end, she looked like a frozen Rocksteady from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and she'll just keep doing it. So, uh, "Hey Lady Gaga, you look perfectly average. Just as ordinary as can be."
  • Lady Gaga gave an "Oh, of course she won" face when Taylor Swift won record of the year. That's what happens when you win so many Grammys, though. Even Carlos Santana was jealous, and he won about 45 for writing that song that's played in waiting rooms around the country.

"Casting spells"


Herding Cats said...

I totally forgot about the Grammy's last night. Thanks for posting this...it reminded me on what I didn't miss!

Kellie said...

Who is that random little kid w/ Beyonce and Jay-Z? Weird. Did she pop out a kid and no one knew it?

Andy said...

Ben- She always looks like a person who failed in her audition for "Hocus Pocus"
Herding- I'm here to serve
Kellie- That is Solange Knowles' kid, I believe.

Amy xxoo said...

None of the free-to-air channels here showed the Grammys so i missed them but...

Simon Baker is Australian ( and hawt! ) and you faile to mention that the almighty AC/DC won their first ever Grammy ( for Best Hard Rock performance, i believe ) after 40 years and numerous nominations.... rock on !

BeckEye said...

I hate the Whammies, so I never watch. I love Gaga though. And I'm sad that I missed Stevie. But not too sad, because I hate those "let's pair up an aging rocker with some young thing who has half his/her talent and triple his/her popularity and/or income" moments. It's like the music industry is just saying, "Old people suck. But so-and-so is a legend, so we can't just brush them off entirely."

Jenners said...

Thank you for watching so I don't have to. And Jason Mraz???? Really.

Actually, I'm so out of touch with popular music that I'm the perfect person to nominate the Grammys and vote.

Erin said...

One important piece of commentary that you missed...Taylor Swift can't sing. The girl can't sing. Seriously, my ears were bleeding.

justsomethoughts... said...

why is a comedy album in the grammys ???




P said...

Amy beat me to it about Simon Baker being australian. I'm pretty sure he used to be in "Home and Away" like Isla Fisher...

Pube cleavage??? Yuck!

Heather said...

Ok - first of all, I have to say I'm a little hurt by your comment about Dave Matthews! They still put out good music, and I'd still be super psyched to see them :)

Secondly - this is why I don't watch awards shows. The same five people won pretty much EVERYTHING. There is soooo much other stuff out there that deserves recognition.
