Wow! The 2010 Grammys
Is it my imagination, or is there finally some good music out there that's actually worth listening to?
I usually skip the Grammys because I'm so out of it I never know who anyone is and don't like a lot of the new music that's out there, but I watched the whole show on Sunday night and found I had shivers down my spine several times.
Starting with Lady Gaga, I find her very talented and believable as an artiste. I love how much trouble she goes through in costuming. Armani designed her space age Grammy ensemble. I loved it!
Beyonce is just plain fine. Her performance that night was stupendous!
Even Taylor Swift is really good. I tried to hate her but she won me over with her youthful virtuosity and poise. She seems like a good kid. Her duet with Stevie Nicks was pretty damn good.
Even Pink pulled off an amazing performance, singing live while soaking wet on a spinning trapeze-like contraption. WOW!
And don't get me started on the Black Eyed Peas. They always put on a show and their music keeps getting better each year.
But there are some singers whose success befuddles me.
Britney Spears is a slob, and her Grammys outfit looked like an 8th grade home-ec class designed and sewed it. Horrible.
Imogene Heap-- well the surname says it all.
And perhaps the phoniest, most talentless, pre-fabbed blob since the Monkees is Miley Cyrus.
I can't stand looking at her Moonpie face, her swollen red gums or her weird girl/woman body. Her raspy voice and hayseed accent sound to me like a 50-year-old Mississippi tavern maid. Let's face it, she was invented to appeal to tween girls who believed if she could be on TV, they could.
Now that she's ditching her Disney series "Hannah Montana," I hope she saved her money because there's no way she'll go on to have a successful music or acting career. She's exactly like her daddy Billy Ray--a horrid flash in the pan.
Back to the Grammys--those male entertainers who couldn't be bothered to dress up, were they kidding?
Sorry, but guys like Travis Barker and some of those rappers and rockers are way too talentless to show up in dirty T-shirts, jeans and leather jackets. Idiots.
They need to take a tip from Usher, John Legend, or even Jon Bon Jovi and spruce up a bit for the Grammys.
Did you watch? What were the highlights for you?
