Eclipse I am with you 100 % especially when it comes to Justin Bieber. Yes he can play instruments, and yes he can sing to an extent. However, I don't find him to be all that spectacular. Perhaps it is because every time he gives an interview it sounds like a 5 year old is responding. "I would like to thank Michael Jackson because without him none of this would be possible."
I don't understand the need for grills. In any situation.
Rihanna.... I don't even know where to start. Maybe with the Christmas garland dress she wore that was literally see through to every extent. Or perhaps her performance with Drake where he was basically her pole while she bent over and slid up and down his body.
That would be the point when I turned off the Grammy's.

I kind of laughed this morning reading how the Bieber fan-nerds went all ballistic because he didn't win...
I don't seriously recall having heard anything from him ever....probably a cute song I think id from a girl. (I think somebody here on COTH said he's dumb as a rock IRL...)
Well, he'll be back next year and bring a few home he said....
Did Miss Spalding perform, the one that actually one best new artist?

I think you have to be between 10 and 12 to appreciate Justin Bieber. My daughter is 13, last year every thing was Justin Bieber. He was plastered all over her room. Now she's moved on to other things. I think Bieber is mildly talented somewhere along the lines of Davey Jones, Shawn Cassidy and other pretty boy singers of my youth. Now you know I'm ancient.
Lady Gaga is just bizarre and I've never heard of the others. Personally I listen to classical music and occasionally oldies rock.
I am disappointed that most of the pop singers today can't sing live! I like Rihanna and Katy Perry's songs on the radio, but both of them were off key on parts of their preformances. It seems like it has become all about the dog and pony show and not the music. And I agree with the statement that Lady Ga Ga is a total Madonna ripoff!
I think Muse is brilliant and love Mumford and Sons. The best joke of the night was Letterman and his quip that Bieber's hair was a piece!!
I think Gaga's egg/womb was actually pretty cool, and it fit with her performing 'Born This Way'.
I'm surprised country singers won so many of the big awards. I love Eminem and I'm very surprised that he walked away with only two out of ten awards. His performance with Dr. Dre and Rihanna blew the house down for sure.
I like Lady Gaga, although I don't think the egg was her best performance. She is actually a decent singer, much better than most other pop stars live. I don't mind the silly costumes--I loved Ceelo Green's gladiator-chicken-on-E last night, too!
LOVE Mumford and Sons, and I was psyched the Arcade Fire won! It's nice to see something kind of offbeat on mainstream TV.
I kind of already wrote my opinion of the Grammy's on the Bieber thread but I'll repeat some of it here.
I would love to know why that Esperanza girl won Best New Artist over Mumford & Sons and Florence and the Machine.
I thought Bruno Mars retro thing was pretty cool. As was Norah Jones, John Mayer, and Keith Urban's version of Jolene.
Katy Perry and Miranda Lambert sounded incredibly weak and if they auditioned anonymously for American Idol I don't think they'd even make it to Hollywood. In fact I think a lot of the contestants of the new Am Idol season have a lot more vocal ability than some of the performers last night.
Mick Jagger was good, but I was really hoping he would sing a Rolling Stones song like Play with Fire or Paint it Black.
Mumford & Sons' performance was AWESOME! Definitely one of the highlights of the night.
I wish Bob Dylan hadn't performed, I'd rather just remember him as he was in his youth. Last night's version of Maggie's Farm didn't even sound like Maggie's Farm.
I don't understand why Lady Antebellum won so.many.awards. I liked that song when it first came out but I am so sick of hearing it by now!
I was very happy to find out that the Black Keys won several categories, because they are AMAZING!
