Grammy's 2012

It was a long show.  3 1/2 hours.  Problem is that the Grammy Producers didn't know how to end it.  On and on it went.  It's huge rating (2nd highest ranked ever behind 1984's show aka Michael Jackson Thriller party), boosted by the death of Whitney and maybe  by those who wanted to hear if Adele can still sing.

The performances?    There were train wrecks:  Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, that dance thing at the end of the show, Paul McCartney the crooner, Foo Fighers, Dave Grohl's electronic music isn't Rock & Roll spiel and many more.
There might have been good moments:  Adele, Glen Campbell, Bonnie Raitt & Alicia Keys.    But they got upstaged by those annoying over-the-top performances.

Boy, did I long for a decent Jazz,  Latin, Classical or Opera moment.

Too many people got to sing new songs that had nothing to do with what they were nominated with.  And whoever green-lighted Chris Brown getting 2 slots should be fired.

But as has already been reported, the only way to watch these live Awards shows is through Social media.  I had a great time following the show through Twitter.  Facebook wasn't that great for it.  So, when you watch the Oscars do it through Twitter.  It makes the long, laborious task a lot easier if you can laugh along at all the stupid excess.
