Grammy Live Blog. It's Late but It's Here-Toya
I didn't exactly hate the Grammys this year but remember I'm an opinionated music snob so of course I have my gripes. This is what I observed play by play during the Grammys this year.

1.     I LOVE the new U2 song and dangitt if Bono and the boys  don’t stay fly!

2.     Go Whitney! And by go I mean, PLEASE leave the stage and go Whitney!  She is so extra.

3.     Clive Davis is a thousand  and ninety two years old

4.     I love that Jennifer Hudson won but MAN I would’ve loved for Raaphael Saadiq to have won

5.     I love you with my whole heart Dwayne Johnson but uh uh.  The Rock is cookin’ up bad jokes.

6.     Is Justin Timberlake hosting in a bullet proof suit? What is that material? If he is, these jokes are so bad that may just be a good idea. Who wrote this?

7.     I am INFURIATED!!!! Why is Boyz II Men singing back up for Justin Timberlake. Why are 3 of the best R&B singers singing behind JT?  Why is AL GREEN singing with JT and why is JT singing most of his song? I have never been so angry so early at an award show.

8.     Yes to them doing my favorite Coldplay songs off of Viva and double yes for Jay-Z’s cameo. I WANT TO BE THE GUY ON THE TYMPANNY!

9.     A big “OKAY!??!” goes to Carrie Underwood’s female guitarist. She’s bada**!

10. NO MORE JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE NO! If I see him one more time I am running over my Nsync CD’s with my car

11. Now let me get THIS straight: I Kissed A Girl is this year’s Grammy Fan song? I hate the music industry.

12. KID ROCK? They are PISSING ME OFF ON PURPOSE NOW. Oh and he’s “Rock N Roll Jesus”? So if we crucify him will he rise again in 3 days? If the answer is yes then never mind.

13. Say what you want about Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus but Taylor can write her behind off and they both have all of their clothes on.

14. John Mayer and LL in the same shot???? THAT is my favorite performance pairing of the night.

15. So since Alicia Keyes and John Mayer did not win for best Pop Collaboration for “Lesson Learned” can they give it best Gospel song because that song ministers? I’m just saying.

16. “Do you mind if I take this Stevie?” says Joe Jonas. I MIND, CHILD!!!! I MIND!!!!!!!! Justin sings all over an Al Green song and Stevie is singing a Jonas brothers song? Jesus ride in on a white horse and crack the sky, please.

17. TRAVIS!!!!! TRAVIS!!!!!!! I love you Travis Barker!!! I’ve never liked Blink 182 but if Travis is happy about the reunion, I’m happy.

18. I need some answers about this Chris Brown arrest situation post haste.

19. Katy Perry has NO rhythm.

20. Estelle and Kanye West performing in the middle of the audience: First of all, I love me some Estelle and I don’t understand why they made her perform in the middle of the audience?  Secondly, I know we are in a recession but why must they double up on performers and presenters? They both look out of breath having to present after just performing. And will someone PLEASE minister unto me as to what is going on with Kanye’s hair????

21. YEAH ADELE WON!!!!!!! I now feel better about this entire show.

22.  Loving this Swagger Like Us performance but why does MIA look like a pregnant Minnie Mouse? Anyone? “No one on the corner can waddle like us, waddle like us, waddle waddle like us”. I think it’s hilarious how Jay-Z is the only one up there who can pull off a tuxedo. Maybe because at forty he’s the only grown man up there. And can someone please explain Lil Wayne’s relevance to me…again?

23. Dave Grohl and Paul McCartney, two of my all time crushes are performing together with Dave on drums again no less??? I don’t know what I did to deserve this but I thank you Jesus. However, I can’t be that good. We got Justin Timberlake and Lil’ Wayne twice tonight.

24. WORK Neil Diamond! “Touching me, touching you” Everybody now…

25.  I wonder what happens when Robin Thicke and Justin Timberlake walk past each other. I’ve never seen them in a picture together. Hmm... And I am sure the room would implode if Daryl Hall showed up.

26. Radiohead’s performance was my favorite, hands down game over. Thank you Thom Yorke for bringin’ creativity back to the Grammys. I mean, it was no Cup of Life but it was a breath of fresh air.

27.  This Four Tops tribute is killing me softly and not in a good way.  I LOVE me some Ne-Yo but Anthony Hamilton or Raaphael Saadiq should’ve replaced Jamie Foxx.  WAIT Boyz II Men couldn’t get in on this? They get no love. Speaking of Ne-Yo, I’m so glad that he won 2 Grammys for Miss Independent. I’ve been meaning to send him flowers for this song but I guess those will do.

28.  So Allison Krauss and Robert Plant’s project won Album of the Year and I am not mad. Hey I love that record especially Please Read the Letter. I understand that it’s no Lollipop. Thank God.

29. Is Stevie’s repeat performance their way of apologizing to him for The Jonas Brothers performance?

30. And now I know why we saw Justin Timberlake 12 times tonight. OMG, Chris Brown. OMG!
