The Grammys

Last night, the 51st Grammy Awards aired and it was pretty clear that the show was trying to be more relevant than it has been in the past few years. Overall, I would have to say it was not a horrible way to kill some time on a Sunday night. Sure Coldplay won a ton of awards and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss grabbed Album of the Year, but that was expected. What you missed if you didn't catch the show was a couple of great performances and a bunch of celebrity screen shots during lulls in the program. Here is a rundown of what I though of the show, please feel free to comment if you agree or disagree:

Coldplay need to lose those Sgt. Pepper outfits and Chris Martin better watch out because Gwyneth was not only looking gorgeous, but is clearly ready to become a Radiohead groupie at any moment.

Who the fuck listens to Kid Rock Anymore?

For living in Australia, Nicole Kidman is the most pale woman on the planet, lending validity to the theory that she may in fact be a blood sucking vampire.

BLINK 182 is back together and will me making more music! Who gives a shit? That was the most anti-climatic reunion announcement in the history of music.

Katy Perry is a damn fox.

Kanye West is currently sporting the first Afro-Mullet that I have ever seen.

M.I.A. made it to the show and she looks like she is about to pop that baby out any second. 'Swagger Like Us,' which she sang on was the performance of the night, as Kanye and Jay-Z murdered it.

performance was great, Yorke looked passionate and I bet that big band sounded deadly in person.

Robin Thicke
(Son of Alan Thicke, father on Growing Pains) does not look like he belongs to that voice, but he totally killed his part on Wayne's 'Tie My Hands.'

Big Bands were certainly in this year.

Lil Wayne's
heel kick upon accepting his award was just plain shitty.

Kanye West and Robert Plant need to have a pissing contest.

Video for American Boy by Estelle and Kanye, which kicked ass at the show:
