The Lady Gaga performance was a huge let down, I'm not a huge fan of hers but I've always admired her for the craziness of her performances, but last night was tame and dull. The biggest thing I noticed about the whole thing was the fact that she totally ripped off Madonna in her song. "Born This Way" sounds almost exactly like "Express Yourself" and almost every entertainment blogger I read said the same thing. Even Madonna's brother talked about it last night before the Grammy's were over. The thing I asked on facebook last night was if Lady Gaga is a bootleg Madonna then what does that make Ke$ha? If your a rip off of a rip off what are you? I thought the Eminem performance was really good even if the Dr. Dre part was not all that great. Eminem just seemed to have a fire in him and spit his verses with passion. Rihanna and Drake were pretty good but I gotta think Beyonce want her outfit back from Rihanna. Those granny panty booty cutter shorts things she had on are a Beyonce trademark. Mick Jagger showed all the kiddies how it's done and reminded everyone that the Stones started with the blues.
As for that opening Aretha Franklin tribute, it was pretty good and introduced a lot of people to Florence from Florence and the Machine but it was also a lot of over singing by Christina. And seriously, why does she look so old all the sudden? Like I said after the Super Bowl, she looks like Cyndi Lauper all the sudden. Babies and divorce do not sit well with her. Arcade Fire closing the show was cool even if the way the Grammy's did it makes it look like Arcade Fire knew in advance they were going to win. If Eminem had won would Arcade Fire have still performed a second song? Just looked fixed in hindsight. But hey, they had Matt Hoffman out there on the stage so not going to complain to much.
