The Grammys Rock

With most award shows, I’m with Woody Allen. I’ll pass or poke fun as an industry that congratulates itself ad nauseum. But I must give some props to the Grammy Awards. Nice opener with Lady Gaga and Elton John. Say what you will about Gaga but she’s so entertaining and there’s a dearth of that in pop music. It was nice to see Taylor Swift accept an award without Kanye West storming the stage in support of Beyonce, who doesn’t need any help. Cool tribute to Michael Jackson. It’s kind of difficult watching Michael’s kids give speeches on his behalf. The show was paced well. And Stephen Colbert stole the show. Colbert is pretty funny and you have to be in order to steal the best Comedy disc from Spinal Tap. I’ll be the Oscars doesn’t hold a candle to this year’s Grammys.
