Haha…I have a few of the same sentiments that you do above, but I wanted to say that I loved Dave Grohl’s acceptance speech for the Foo Fighters winning best rock performance. He talked about making the album in his garage with a few mics and a recorder with raw talent. Awesome.

As for Nikki Minaj, I have no idea what the heck that was…

I am going to answer all of your questions with one phrase ….

I HAVE NO F-ING CLUE! 

I am so annoyed by all of the music thats out these days! Adele, Paul McCartney, Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, The Band Perry and a few others did tasteful performances but I have no words for everyone else. I was a little disappointed in the grammy’s overall.

My favorite part was the Beach Boys. I love them. My father would always be play their music in the car. 🙂

Honestly I like Nikki Minaj…but that was one of the weirdest and creepiest things I have ever seen. She’s up on the weirdness scale with Lady Gaga and Madonna. Not a fan of the song or performance.

Oh, and I had heard on the radio this morning that there were a ton of people tweeting, “Who is this Paul McCartney guy?” I cringed when I heard that…

I love that Dave Grohl talked about recording their album in a garage and proceeded to perform with deadmau5

Can Taylor Swift please go away now? Why did she look SHOCKED that people applauded her performance? Even 6 yr olds at a ballet recital expect applause.

Chris Brown’s performance belonged at the VMAs, I’m usually ok with performers not singing while dancing but its the GRAMMYS

@MrsDrRose612:  Honestly the song was just as strange. It wasn’t good. She should have picked something better.

Nicki Minaj – how many people did you sleep with to get a record deal? Seriously, you can be called a ‘performer’ if you like (although what the heck you were performing last night, I don’t want to know), but you are not a singer.

Taylor Swift – girl, I will listen to you on the radio, but you hurt my ears when you sing live and if I see you do that ‘omigosh they’re cheering for me?’ act one more time, I’m going to write yet another really snarky FB status about you, cause that’s all I can do. You are fast becoming incredibly annoying and obnoxious. Graciously bow and accept the applause/awards like every other freaking performer.

Also, sing the ‘I can’t sing’ line on-pitch. It’ll be much more helpful to your case.

Adele – you sing so beautifully, and you always sound like an exquisite high-society British lady when you sing. But then you talk and it’s so Cockney!  Also, the ‘snot’ line? Hilarious. Glad to see you win like, everything!

Carrie, Lady A, Band Perry, I love you all. Keep being awesome.

Oh, and blue/granny hair? Not cool. Stop it now.

@hisgoosiegirl: “Oh, and blue/granny hair? Not cool. Stop it now.” 

YES!!! Thank you! Someone was going on and on about how amazingly gorgeous Katy Perry looked and all I could think of was blue krimped hair that looked awful.

I watched for a bit, but turned it off after Rihanna “performed”. Her hair, the outfit, the rolling on the ground and awkwardly bending over to show the crowd her bum…no ma’am. Fiance and I just kept saying ” what… is… she…. doing?” I wouldn’t be surprised to find she is on drugs or something, she looks a hot mess.

Nikki Minaj was a disaster last night, but she can rap. Listen to Monster on My Dark Twisted Fantasy (or whatever the h*ll Kanye named his latest album). When you can steal the spotlight from Kanye you’re good.
