Another "award" show to drive sales...

no thanks.

#52 10 days ago

I just flipped it on and I swear I’m watching WWE because there is a steel cage.

Grammys can suck it , who gives a shit about some bullshit award given to some bullshit “artist” by a puppet .

#54 10 days ago

Great list of nominations and I like many of those bands. How many will we see on the show? Answer is zero. Did you see how fast the Black Sabbath Lifetime Achievement announcement went by? Screw the Grammys. Actually Gaga was good (she usually is). Otherwise - screw the Grammys.

#55 10 days ago

No time for that. Pebble beach pro am final round was on.

#56 10 days ago

So......tell us what you really think Drake. I see they cut his ass off mid speech while he was bashing the award show.

For fear of rioting they had to quickly end the show after a country girl singer won album of the year.

#57 10 days ago

Hey Vince, you ready to watch the Grammys?

Watching now, not a major country fan, but the Dolly Parton tribute was great. And it lets me see and hear performances this middle old white guy might not normally be exposed to and while may not like some of it, often surprised.

Oh, and Alicia Keys medley playing two pianos!!!!!!!

I only watched a bit last nite..sadly, there was no wardrobe malfunctions..I wanted to see some boobies!

Surprise , surprise ....USA Today online’s entire front page is all Grammy coverage.... no real news!

#62 9 days ago

Only someone as old, crusty, and "dad at the disco" as Vid would suggest that watching the Grammys - in any year - is in any way shape or form a "young, hip" activity.

Second only to the Macy's Day Parade in youthful hipness and non-lameness!

#63 9 days ago

Depends on the dad and disco.

Best performances last night were Lady Gaga, Jannele Monae, and Dolly Parton.

Award shows in general are kinda lame and the grammy's are no exception.

Quoted from Pickle:

I think Vid is more like a collective, an all knowing entity with all that he shares.
Still waiting for Vid’s guide to playing the lottery to win and Sports betting guide....bet he knows a thing or two on these subjects and how not lose your ass!!!

I work in the industry and can tell you the secret to winning......play pinball and keep your money in your pocket....it's that easy.

#66 9 days ago

Vid, I'm with you 99.99% of the time, but I think you lost me on this one. Next thing you know, you'll be wanting to discuss who wore it best on the red carpet.

I tuned in for 10 seconds and saw that that cool young hitmaker Diana Ross was performing!

#71 9 days ago

S.H.E. was playing a $15,000 clear Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster.

Fender Instagramed it yesterday, so you figured it would turn up somewhere.

This was the only thing interesting to me. Didn't happen on air. Kind of a weird watch. I wonder if they even had seats, or did they have to notify them in the lobby.

Matt Pike + diabetes = losing toes.

I used to be an entertainer.

So I enjoy seeing the entertainers who are at the top of their craft.

I like seeing $15,000 guitars or even a jazz singer playing 2 grand pianos at once, barefoot.

I mean, is there anything Alicia Keys can't do???

Yeah I'm sure Diana was "playing" that guitar.

Quoted from TheLaw:

That's what I was wondering. Did any of them actually play anything on those guitars? Other than maybe strumming a few basic chords? Also how much if the good ole lip syncing was going on.? I heard something about Cardi D, a singer I have never heard of but I am sure is extremely famous and popular and has sold trillions of streams.

It's mostly just vid posts but you had to know the "rap is crap!!!" gang and "I hate liberals!!!" crowd would manage to beef it up to page 2!

Grammys do not allow lip syncing. EVERY mic on stage must be live.

Sometimes horns that are syths on the album, are played live at the Grammy.

I have seen where the intro phrase is the same sample as the album, so obviously they allow some sampling.

Careful, you could be moderated for this hate rant.

#91 9 days ago

Vid, you are truly a renaissance man. I agree about Alicia, musicians musician, and classy caring woman to boot. Oh, and for us middle old guys, it wasn't bad seeing 73 year old Dolly, and 75 year old Diana lighting up the stage. And Bob Newhart wasn't bad either playing the grim reaper in a 20 year old suit. LOL

#92 9 days ago
Quoted from xsvtoys:

Sure.

You can tell when someone is wearing a guitar as an accessory, and when they are playing.

#93 9 days ago

Thanks for posting the Winners, vid.

Weird Al picked up an award.

Look forward to hearing all this music in 20 to 40 years, because my radio is locked to the "oldies station" which is on the 80s and 90s right now!

This was the best performance of the night bar none. Big St. Vincent fan. Seen her quite a few times in concert over the past 10 years.

2nd generation “classic rock” like Motley Crue, Def Leppard, and Bob Jovi is too new for my liking. I’ll stuck to The Beatles, Stones, Who, Guess Who, CSNY, Zepp, and the like. I’m stuck in my ways. The best music is rock music from 1966–1982. Yes, that’s all old white guys now. Thank you very much.

Especially when there was probably the least rap in 30 years.

It was mostly Oldies, Country and Hip Hop.
