OK, you know you watched…at least some of it…what did you think? How scandalous was it that Chris Brown and Rihanna didn’t show up????
Just kidding. Who knows what really happened. UPDATED: This is really too bad – story here on Chris Brown’s arrest.
The theme of the night was apparently “Wear Something Totally Hot on the Red Carpet and Later, Perform in Something Butt-Ugly.” For real.
Here are those getting a thumbs-up (keep in mind that I didn’t get to see much of the red carpet…I have three boys who were not impressed with that show):
Carrie Underwood (was anyone else a little nervous during her performance? Cause I was. But man, she looks amazing.)
Jennifer Nettles from Sugarland
Katy Perry (NOT in her performance)
LL Cool J (um, I love him)
Ryan Seacrest (go ahead and think I’m a dork…I don’t care. I think he’s cute.)
Kanye (ridiculous hair and jacket. Puhleeze.)
Jennifer Hudson, who LOOKS great but two bad dress choices
And while MIA deserves a category all her own for tackiest thing I think I’ve ever seen, I’ll just stick her here. I didn’t know who she was before tonight, don’t care to see her again, but the polka dots are now burned in my memory. Here’s a link to her in the dress, if you can call it that.
::Whitney Houston = Crazy and can’t read a teleprompter
::I’m happy for a central Illinoisan to make it big like Allison Krauss has, but that song was not good, and it won two Grammys. I’m especially ticked that it beat the Maroon 5/Rihanna collaboration, and honestly, I’d have been OK with that award going to Chris Brown/Jordin Sparks over Allison Krauss/Robert Plant.
::Adele, honey, the next time you make an acceptance speech, swallow your gum on your way up to the stage.
::Happy to see John Mayer get a win!
::I get the appeal of boy bands in general, but I do NOT get the Jonas Brothers’ appeal. They are average singers and performers, IMHO.
::On that note, I enjoyed Stevie Wonder, and wondered (hee hee) if he was annoyed that he had to perform with The Jonas Brothers messing with his song.
::Is anyone else concerned that Nicolas Cage is responsible for preventing the world’s end? I think I’d choose someone more heroic, like, um, pretty much anyone else.
::I wish I could find a link to the T Mobile commercial that aired on the preshow…it’s a married couple and I thought it was hilarious. If anyone wants to spend time trying to find it, great, but I’m not going to since I didn’t see it on youtube. Post it in the comments if you find it and know which one I’m talking about!
