Bit 'o Grammy

If you haven't done it yet, I highly recommend TiVo-ing award shows and watching them the next day when you can fast forward through all the crap. Like a lot of the music. The performances are usually so scripted and choreographed that you might as well just buy the album and enjoy the over-produced music. Award shows are all about how the stars look anyway. Right?
On to the show's highlights - in my mind, anyway.

Let's just say it - Madonna is still smokin' hot. But did she really need to bring back the curling iron/Feathered hair look?

Kelly Clarkson won 2 Grammys? Holy Crap. She's still going to have to cure cancer to get the respect she deserves. That song rocked hard.

Country music... Blah, Blah, Blah.

U2 and Mary J. Blige? Not sure that one was well thought out.

Gwen Stefani is really cute preggers but the jury is still out on that dress.

If I were a lesbian I would totally go for Ellen Degeneres. Funny and loves animals wins over classically good looking every time.

Has Paul McCartney had work done? If he did, his plastic surgeon did a good job. If not, there's another endorsement for being a vegetarian. And legalized marijuana.

Dear Mariah - You look fabulous, please don't go on some crazy weight loss plan to please your critics. Just cut those extensions (or, horror, your real hair) and you'll lose at least 10 pounds.

What the F*CK was Teri Hatcher wearing?!!

Dave Chapelle is the funniest man not on television anymore.

Okay, the Sly and the Family Stone number... I'm confused. It started out good, so what the hell happened? Oh, they woke Sly Stone from his coma. Or did they?

I'll admit it, I am not a Bruce Springsteen fan. Never have been and never will be. But I do like "Devils and Dust". Now leave me alone.

I'm still not impressed with Kanye West. But the drumline was cool.

Jamie Foxx, Ray Charles called from Heaven. He said he played himself better than you did. Now can you go back to being just Jamie Foxx again?

It's going to take a lot more cleaning up on Christina Aguilera's part to make me forget the
X-tina years.

I met Bonnie Raitt about 10 years ago when I was still working in radio. She is the smallest person - ever. So small you could put her in your pocket. But she seems so much taller on television.

Oh yeah, U2 won a bunch of awards. I loved that album and I really do believe that it deserved all the awards. But at this point I think U2 could record a rock rendition of the ABCs and they would win at least 7 awards.
