2013 Grammy's

Thanks to social media, people who hate awards shows can now watch them and put their thoughts on Facebook & Twitter for all the world to see.

Well. I've never been a Grammy hater.  The awards?  Okay, not so much.  I'm all about the performances.  And last night there were quite a few good ones: Black Keys, the Reggae segment, Jack White, Kelly Clarkson, Levon Helm Tribute, short Dave Brubeck tribute, Frank Ocean, Rap finale, even Rihanna who toned it down for a change.

That's why I watch these things.  Certainly the Mumford & Sons album isn't the best of the year.  It's not even their best.  So, forget about the awards.  Most of them.  Some categories not given out on TV are worth exploring:  Americana, Folk.  Skip the Jazz where the usual names are awarded every year.

Now let's move on to the 20 or so Country awards shows that are about to get started for 2013.
