Well since I had nothing to do at all last night, but pour over boring homework; and there was nothing else on TV to distract me from stupid Geometry problems, I decided to watch the Grammy awards for the first time. I've never cared about the Grammy awards that much, but like I said, there wasn't anything else on TV, plus I found out that one of my favorite bands, u2, were nominated for a few, so I decided to watch.
It started out with a cool collaboration performance with the Gorrillaz and Madonna, whom I was surprised at her age; she's still looking pretty hot. After that, Coldplay rocked the stage with one of there new songs from there new album (X&Y), sounding a lot like u2.
I forget the order in what happened next, but Kelly Clarkson performed and won best Pop vocal album. I felt like jumping in the screen and closing the curtains on Kelly Clarkson, because every time she won an award, she cryed like a baby for 15 minutes getting all stupid and emotional before the whole crowd threw tomatoes at her and booed her off stage....Just joking.
Anyway, there were some other pretty cool performances like from Jay-z and Linkin Park who won best rap/sung collaboration for "Numb/Encore", "Feel Good Inc." from the Gorillaz who won best Pop collaboration, Bruce Springsteen’s performance wasn't that bad who won best solo rock performance for his new single "Devils&Dust", but the highlight of the whole show was obviously u2's Rocking Vertigo performance, and collaboration with R&B queen Mary J. Blige to sing u2's classic "One".
U2 won the most grammys out of everybody: Album of the year “How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb", Rock album of the year, song of the year "Sometimes You can't Make it on Your Own", best rock song "City of Blinding Lights", and best rock performance by a duo or group with vocal. Its the second time u2 won album of the year, back in 1987 they won with the "Joshua Tree", and also u2 have more Grammies now than any other rock band with 21, ranking 6th on the all time list. Kanye West won best rap album, non-surprisingly, and if it weren't for u2 than he would have won album of the year. Mariah Carey won a few and so did Green Day for best record of the year "Boulevard of Broken Dreams". The rest of the show sucked except Jamie Fox's performance of "Gold Digger". There was also a special performance from 61 year old Sly Stone sporting the 'pimpest' Mohawk of all time.
