Grammy Run Down

The best thing about last night's overblown Grammy Awards? Definitely Radiohead's performance of "15 Steps". They took home an award for Best Alt. Rock Album of the Year, but were beaten down for overall Album of the Year by the terrible twosome of Robert Plant & Alison Krauss. Ah well, who really pays attention anyways?

Dare i ask, where were Radiohead's other three band members? Am i missing something? Were they lost somewhere in the USC drumline?

Also, check out the one-night only formation of the "rap pack" - Jay-Z, Kanye, T.I., and Lil Wayne with very pregnant bouncing ladybug M.I.A.

Otherwise, the Grammy's were, as per usual, rather dull and random. Apparently at some point they handed out these awards, though it was difficult to tell when these things happened.

Additional questions i have:

1. What was with Katy Perry's fruit-theme? And was it just me or was her singing and dancing on par with Britney's notorious "Gimme More" number?

2. Were Coldplay's Sgt. Pepper outfits necessary? I'm gonna go with no. Especially when Chris Martin's lady Gwyneth Paltrow was clad in a killer sparkle mini-dress.

3. Someone please, please, please explain to me how Lil Wayne can beat out folks like Jay-Z & Lupe Fiasco. Please. I so do not understand.

4. Bono took his glasses off. Underneath them he had on heavy eyeliner. He's not a man who pulls that off well. Thoughts?

The full list of winners is here.
