The Grammy Awards: It Was The Best of Times, It Was The Worst of Times

The Best and the Worst, in no particular order:

Best: & Morris Day and The Time performed a little Jungle Love . & Jerome even brought out the mirror for Morris to check his hair, recreating the sheer poetry of their Purple Rain performance. & I was giddy! &

Worst: & Their performance was hijacked by Rihanna singing about umbrellas.


Best: & Tina Turner, at 68, sounded fantastic.

Worst: & She performed with Beyonce, everyone's favorite fembot.

Best: & Both Prince and Stevie Wonder were there.

Worst: & They were both tasked with introducing Alicia Keys (she doesn't do it for me, people) and nothing else.

Best: & Some country star named Brad Paisley perfomed a song about ticks! & The refrain: & "I want to check you for ticks." & Hilarious!


Worst: & Some country star named Brad Paisley perfomed a song about ticks. & Downright horrifying.

Best Hair: & Cindy Lauper's bird's nest, Kanye West shaving MAMA onto the back of his head, and Amy Winehouse's bouffant.

Worst hair: & Kid Rock's grease fest persists, The Foo Fighters, Carol King (deep condition alert).

Best: & Amy Winehouse was able to perform from London ( I stayed up just to see it). & I know she's a train wreck, but the girl has serious talent.

Worst: & Randomly, Cuba Gooding Jr. introduced her. & Why? &

Best: & Fiest sang.

Worst: & So did Fergie. &

Best: & The Beatles tribute was good.

Worst: & The Barry Gordy tribute was WAY too short.

Best: & Kanye West scolded producers for bringing up the music during his acceptance speech, before he was done talking about his mother.

Worst: & When they listened and turned off the music, West then used the opportunity for self-aggrandizement. &

Best: & The White Stripes won two awards.

Worst: & I didn't see it. & Not sure when it happened. & I may have dozed off. I hate it when I miss Jack. &
