At Least It Wasn’t Lil’ Wayne

Posted on February 9th, 2009

The Grammys last night were interesting; throughout the ceremony, there was a very obvious theme of collaboration. That and long commercial breaks. It seems that 2008 was full of artists working together to remake music or to explore new avenues, and the Academy’s choice of record of the year reflected that.

I found some of the performances rather peculiar:

1. Boyz II Men: Who knew they were still alive? (Who cares?)
2. Coldplay and Jay-Z: An atrocity of a good song. Perhaps this is my stereotype/bias against rap (I don’t need some guy to brag about how rich he is and how awesome his cars are), but I really did not appreciate what Jay-Z brought to the table.
3. Carrie Underwood: You can’t hike a dress that already ends at your waistline. I mean, come on.
4. Kid Rock: Um.
5. Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift: Corporate marketing machine vs. talented musician.
6. Stevie Wonder and Jonas Brothers: If Stevie Wonder could have seen the Jonas Brothers, I don’t think they would have shared the same stage.
7. Radiohead: Epic.

Speaking of Radiohead, only at the Grammys would they belong in the same category as Lil’ Wayne. While I am a huge fan of In Rainbows and really wanted them to win record of the year, I can take consolation in the fact that they were not beat out by Lil’ Wayne. Or “Ne-yo.”
