"We On Awards Tour With..." - Grammys Re-Cap

Did you happen to catch the show last tonight? Well if you didn't what you missed was, the "Post-Obama, we can all get along, we ARE in a recession you know" version of the heavily watched show. ALOT of repeat artist performing twice on the show (I'm guessing to save airfare and lodging), Damn near EVERY act was a black and white artist pairing, Justin and Al Green then T.I., the Jonas (freakin') Brothers and Stevie (!?!), Coldplay w/Jay-Z, Lil' Wayne and Robin Thicke...you pretty much get the point. And it's a good thing this wasn't the "American" Music Awards cause it would've been embarrassing to see all mostly British acts (other than rap, r&b, & country...of course) go home with the awards! Notably missing was Beyonce', who skipped this years ceremony amid treats from both Etta James AND a still upset Aretha Franklin. An over-due M.I.A. (lookin' real B.I.G.) should've been the one sitting this one out, from the looks of her get up, AND she's ONLY doing the hook anyway! No ma ma! It looked like that damn 90's movie, ummm "4 man & a Baby" up there! The hosts were awkwardly unfunny if not boring. And BTW Whitney, you have no more excuses! Bobby's gone. Memo to Stevie: Be glad you couldn't see who they dared to place you on the same stage with! Memo to Boys II Men: Back up singers fellas? Really? What's next Miley Cyrus and Gladys Knight?!?

And the Winners are:

Album of the Year: Raising Sand - Robert Plant and Alison Krauss

Rap Album: Tha Carter III - Lil Wayne

Male Pop Vocal Performance: Say - John Mayer

Record of the Year: Please Read The Letter - Robert Plant and Alison Krauss

New Artist: Adele
