I’ll be with you tonight live-blogging the Grammys for the evening. I hope we can have a good musical night together.
Lady Gaga opens the show with some “Poker Face” then burns herself alive to team up with Elton John. Much like his team-up with Eminem way back then, Elton latches onto the music’s It-Girl to give his own career a boost. Otherwise, I’m not really getting it. The “Speechless” and “Your Song” live mash-up was more mess-up.
Nicole Kidman is looking great!
I didn’t even know Stephen Colbert was hosting. I expect snarky greatness.
Song of the Year (already??) “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)”
J.Lo. I’m not quite getting the 2008 raccoon eyes and aluminum foil mini-skirt/formal. Honey, no. Clearly they are getting those mounting comebacks out of the way. And her announcement of Green Day’s American Idiot just sent Taboo shivers down my spine.
By the way, some awards have already been given out tonight. Swift and Gaga already have their trophies. Check them out here.
