This is the first Grammy show I’ve watched in years – at some point I just gave up. Some years I would tune in between another show or just catch highlights on the net afterwards. But this year I was excited to see some of the performances (no, NOT U2).
What I find interesting is no one has mentioned the number of UK artists getting awards, nominated and/or performing. That surely contributes to the fact that I made it all the way through the program. Let’s put it another way…if you took all the UK (and Irish) artists out of the equation you had a handful of ‘ok’ performances.
Too bad the Grammy folks took down the video of Radiohead performing “15 Step” with the aid of the USC Marching Trojans. That was a truly brilliant performance.
