I generally don’t catch the award shows, but I finally figured out where CBS is on my basic cable TV (I’ve been planted on PBS for so long I don’t know where to find anything else).
I generally don’t catch the award shows, but I finally figured out where CBS is on my basic cable TV (I’ve been planted on PBS for so long I don’t know where to find anything else). So there were some surprises last night at the Grammys, one being best new artist of the year, the very hot Esperanza Spaulding:
The nice part about this award is that Spaulding is actually a genius talent and people in the jazz world have been raving about her for the last few years.
Okay so I made fun of her bony protrusions last night, but you gotta hand it to the Gaags, she’s the only one out there with a with any performance art sensibility. An egg on the red carpet almost rivals a swan dress:
Lets cut to the highlights…
I’ll leave you with some questions:
Is Jaden Smith going to grow up to be as annoying as his dad (or Biebs)? What kept Eminem’s head from exploding last night? Cee lo (FTW?) Sly & the Family Stone ala Jim Henson? Didn’t Nicki Minaj used to be butch, or was it all a dream? Could they have chosen a more shlumpy looking group for album (album, hello?) of the year? Which dinosaur had the better performance, Mick or Bob? Who is on a faster down hill spiral Xtina or Lilo? Where was Susan Boyle? If it wasn’t for Glee would anyone be listening to Teenage Dream?
