Did you watch the Grammy's last night? What did you think of the performances? Who totally rocked it for you? Were you bored to tears? Did you actually sit through the entire show, or fast-forward through it, like I did? Who do you think deserved to take home the trophy for Album of the Year?
Here's what was going through my mind last night:
Lady Gaga - she's fabulous. She can put on a show - even though she may not be the best singer live - at least she's singing, right? I think her crazy outfits are awesome. And even though she's always over-the-top, it's so... real. It's who she is. She's just... Gaga. Awesome. Her duet with Elton, though? It was just okay. Elton's duet with Eminem a few years ago was way more exciting, no?
Beyonce, Beyonce, Beyonce... she's a superstar. I thought she looked great last night - especially her hair. I think her hair stylist should talk to Taylor. But hearing Beyonce sing You Outta Know made me want to scream. That song sucked when Alanis sang it, and hearing it sung by Beyonce still didn't make it any better!
Slash with his November Rain guitar solo? YES! That was awesome. Totally awesome.
And Pink? She's a great performer. She's totally cool. And even though she already did the whole trapeze acrobatics thing before at the VMA's - it was still fun to watch. And her body! Solid!
Black Eyed Peas also rocked the house last night. They are my favourite group because no one makes me wants to hit the gym like they do! I'm on Team Fergie, for sure.
What where they thinking?
The 3D tribute to Michael Jackson? Really hurt my eyes. I was running around my family room trying to find the 3D glasses that came with my son's Lego magazine, but no luck - I had to watch blurry television for a few agonizing minutes. Would have been better without the whole '3D effect' for viewers, I think! I did like the Canadian connection on that stage, though - from Celine Dion to Carrie Underwood, who you all know is engaged to Ottawa Senator's own Mike Fisher!
Rihanna? Really? Your hair is bad enough, but your white dress? Horrible! Why would someone choose to accentuate their hips? That is the dress I'd wear in my worst nightmare! I also think if I bumped in Rihanna into real life, she's be a real bitch, and give me the death stare with her icy cold eyes. And I hate bitchy people, so I don't think we'd ever be friends.
And Carrie Underwood - also in white - wore a dress that did nothing for her cute body. Usually she doesn't disappoint on the red carpet - but last night, her dress was far too big for her small frame. She's almost too skinny, actually. She needs to move to Ottawa, because our harsh winter will make her want to eat - a few extra pounds will help keep her warm!
Cutest singer in the audience who didn't make an appearance on stage? Britney! Yes, she will be on every worst-dressed list, but her hair and make-up looked great, and she looked happy. So she gets a thumbs up from me!
Best dressed presenter? Lea Michele! I loved her dress! So pretty. But seeing her made me miss Glee. Is it April yet?
I was wondering why Olivia Newton John took to the stage in her Grease outfit with Bon Jovi, then I discovered it wasn't Olivia - just some country singer. Yeah, clearly I don't keep up with the whole country music scene. But hello? Bon Jovi performing Livin' On A Prayer? One of the best performances of the night, hands down!
Bleep, bleep, bleepity bleep bleep bleep:
Every time I see Eminem on stage, I think: this dude is talented. I love him. I do. You can't deny that he is an awesome rapper. I was just SO ANNOYED that during most of his performance, I couldn't hear him! I mean, hello? It was like, 11 p.m. - I'm going to go on a limb here and say that most children under the age of 13 were asleep. Why, then, can't performers swear on television? Aside from the fact that my television muted itself for 5 minutes straight last night, Drake, Lil Wayne and Eminem were awesome.
Most in need of a flat-iron:
I get it. Taylor Swift is cute. And nice. And she put out a really popular record this year. With songs that I didn't mind listening to. And she dated Taylor Lautner, which was super-dooper cute. And we all thought they'd get married, and have cute little children called Taylor Jr.But come on! Somebody give this girl a flat-iron! I am not a fan of her curly-curls. And her dress? Bleh. She looked so... old. The colour, the cut, everything. Why couldn't she have gone with big loose curls, a la Jessica Simpson and a more simple dress? She would have rocked it last night if she did. And as for her winning Album of the Year? I wasn't surprised, but I don't think she deserved it. The Black-Eyed Peas and Lady Gaga were much more deserving! Sorry, but I Gotta Feeling was one of the best songs of the year! And Poker Face! There is no denying Taylor's popularity this year, but really? Album of the Year? Meh... not for me.
So... what did you think?
