given the show is on delay, there is no reason the tv audience had to see the technical snafus surrounding Celine Dions performance. :rolleyes:

 

I liked the White Stripes though...my grandma did too. :thu:

Prince & Beyonce - great opening

the White Stripes - need a bass player (time for a snack)

 

Nice tribute to Luther Vandross. I am really liking Alica Keys the more I hear her. The folks who are doing sound for Celine Dion will never work the Grammys again!

 

Man, Patti LaBelle looks great for a 50+ woman :eek: I hope my wife ages that well ... :thu:

Weird show so far...and actually quite "musical". Anyone have recent memory of the past few years of this particular awards show? I coulda' sworn it was heavily weighted in favor of the rap/hip-hop genre. Pretty strange up to this point.

Too many cooks ended up in the kitchen with EWF alright. And 50 cent? Little snapper-headed shit-ass. Classless bloke. As for Beyonce, that gal has a wonderful, strong, sweet voice...but enuff with the frickin jiveass vocal gymnastics already. Getting real old in the ballad genre. Ladies and gents, give the gymnastics a fucking break already....and re-learn ME-LO-DY. IMHO, the melodic vision of many ballads get lost in the bravado of "watch what I can do with this-a-here one breath".

Definately. She was a client of my dad's back in the day. He took care of her keys.

The big money-makers are getting DISSED so far @ 2:42 into this awards show. I believe we are either witnessing an industry fluke, or a trend towards music that is actually played and sung. What a concept!!! Perhaps this night was a result of a quick fix behind the scenes to pacify the pissed-off crowd from the super-bowl?? However, I can't really see the producers of tonight's show pulling this off or doing this at all. Toned down big time. I find myself quite surprised. Am I alone here?

I bought that Beyonce record. If it's worth 4 grammys, a grammy's worth nothing.

 

It's the perfect example of why the business is dying. One good song, which is really just the sampled best parts of a classic, followed by a number of unlistenable tracks.

 

She can sing, but she's got no material.

Not only did Celine Dion not have monitors, there were no FX or anything. . .zip, zilch, nada. And ya know, not only was it a testament to her and the piano player's professionality, it actually sounded better, more personal. Given the song she was doing it came off better than the way the producers probably planned it.

Astute observation. Nailed it! :thu:

Why no real tribute to Barry White? I could have done without this boring Zevon tribute. Heck, I don't even know who he is, really. If you're not going to adequately recognize everyone of really & truly great and notable stature it's better to leave it alone. The picture tribute was all that was necessary. As a Barry White fan, I feel that his legacy has been disrespected, as have many others.

 

Phil, you are right on about Beyonce's lack of credible songs. Great talent, no songs.

It started here about 15 minutes ago. Nice opening - Prince was on it, and Beyonce has a great voice - but she needs to back off on the vocal gymnastics a bit.

 

The Beatles tribute was a bit of a laugh. I thought Vince Gill did a great job - Dave Matthews should be embarrassed. Sting should have done better - Vince upstaged them both IMO.

OMG! I officially give the performance of the night award to OUTKAST, for that outburst of wild fun and visual counterpoint!!! Damn, I love surprises!
