I think Ryan was having some serious prison fuck fantasies as he was interviewing FloRida (who also pings to high heaven). I'm digging Ryan's longer hair, though.

Anyone else think Kelly Rowland was thinking, 'I didn't come here to talk about Beyonce, bitch', as Giuliana was interviewing her on the red carpet?

Also, did JLo miss the No Nudity memo sent out by the Grammy committee? She's not nearly as naked as she has been in the past, but she's still showing shoulder, arm and thigh. It's like she NEEDS to be talked about, come hell or high water.

It's not because it enables bad singers to sing okay -- that's what it should be used for. If you're RiRi and a huge pop star based on whatever factors, and you really can't sing - by all means, use it. It's throwaway pop anyway, so big deal.

It's now used by legit singers as a "safety net" and it strips any hint of personality, texture, character out of anyone's voice.

Okay, end of rant.

And while she is not a great singer she does exhibit real, raw emotion in some of her songs. She owns the bad girl persona and does what the hell she wants. She isn't pretending to be some Fairy Princess who wed the Noble Knight. Rumor has it Jay-Zzzz has a son who lives in Brooklyn with his paid off baby Mama.

Come on guys don't be so harsh. Rhianna is a pop singer and for that genre she's a decent singer. This is a genre that includes Madonna, Britney, Janet, Paula Abdul, Jlo.... She's not a singer's singer like a Whitney, Mariah, Aretha or Adele but she's a decent singer for her genre. Maybe I'm just in a generous mood tonight. However, I draw the line with this Chris Brown mess. She's playing a costly game as far as her career and life is concerned. She's setting a bad example.

Wow, Frank Ocean is really flat.

Frank Ocean is overrated.

I know I was about to say that! Wow! Maybe he was nervous. That was not good.

OK, Rhianna is decent for Pop. I just don't consider her to be a REAL singer.

I am so sick of Ryan Seacrest. What does he have to do with music? He had nothing to with the Olympics either but he was involved with them, too. He about ruined the Olympics for me.

Why does he get all the gigs? Surely there are other people in Hollywood who can do what he does.

WHY is everyone so desperate to make Justin Timberlake and this new album happen? WHY are they treating him like some musical genius for doing third-rate R&B that's beneath what even people like Miguel and Robin Thicke have been doing for years?

Is the industry so desperate for a white male savior that they're gonna put all the muscle behind HIM?!!??

I'm honestly flabbergasted. He's not untalented but ever since this "comeback" people have been treating him like the second coming and it's quite odd.

[quote]The last 3 Grammys Madonna one (sic) she was a no show at the awards. She said in an interview once that award shows are silly and don't mean anything.

I guess that's why she's always made such a big deal about appearing at the MTV Awards.

JJ Cool L said at the beginning of the show that he had prepared to open the show another way but had to scratch all that when someone in the biz passed away suddenly last week. And then he never went back to that topic. Who died?

It seems that Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, and Justin Timberlake are the only artists that have vocal talent, the rest are all auto-tuned.

How come Goyte didn't perform his big hit?

I just don't get Carrie Underwood's fame. She's good but her voice is not strong. Kelly Clarkson has a much, much better voice. Maybe country fans love Underwood because she fits their profile.

Justin Timberlake was sooooo boring. I don't think his album will do well. He's past his prime, even with Jay Z accompanying him.

I think Portia looked hot but Ellen needs to grow that pixie out. It's just not attractive.

The best Grammy awards were in 1999. Look at this lineup: Sting, Cher, Sheryl Crow, Ricky Martin, Lenny Kravitz, Tony Bennett, Rob Thomas, TLC, Whitney Houston, Shania Twain, Dixie Chicks, Lauren Hill, Missy Elliot, that was music.

by Anonymousreply 38702/11/2013

These people are nominated not because of talent but to get ratings for the broadcast. Some of the performances were dreadful. Fun., Swift, Rihanna, Clarkson, LL,and Ocean, just awful every one of them. Some of the veterans, though, fared pretty well. Elton, Sting, Mars, Timberlake, the Keys, Mavis, White all sounded professional and worthwhile. Just remember, Ocean has never found a note yet. Riahanna can't even sing with autotune. The Fun. guy and Clarkson mistook screeching loud flat notes for drama. It's always a mixed bag and this show was no different. Some highlights, many low (flat) notes, too.

I like that Ellen doesn't try to look hot. Pretty is temporary and overrated. She was funny checking to make sure Beyonce wasn't lip synching talking.

I d that Frank Ocean was so good, but I was terribly disappointed in his performance last night. I won't be buying any of his music.

I was never a fan of Justin Timberlake and found his performance boring. I suppose that dressing up in a suit is the best he can do to revive his music?

The Black Keys were great. I have to admit that I enjoyed Mumford and Sons, despite they have too much of a country vibe to them. In fact, the Grammys seems to focus a lot on country music performers these days, esp. those that s=can cross over well.

Why was it raining on fun.? I was worried someone would get electrocuted or slip and fall off the stage on the wet surface.

Rihanna is also dull and boring.

Frank Ocean is an interesting artist, he just doesn't translate well live imo.

Also, did none of y'all notice the male pronouns in his lyrics? That song is about a male love interest. I applaud him for being so open about it.

R388 is so right.

R381, what LL Cool J was referring to was last YEAR, not last week. He was referring to the death of Whitney Houston one day before the Grammys (last year) and how he had to scrap what he was going to say and do "new" stuff (about her?) written for the ceremony last year, very Whitney-centric.

by Anonymousreply 39902/11/2013

R397, you have a strange idea of an artist if you think an artist does not need to 'translate well live'.

r400 - what about Kate Bush and Britney Spears? They are no longer regarded as live performers (Kate hasn't even performed for two decades) and yet their music is still in demand - and they certainly are artists.

Frank Ocean hit so many off-key and sour notes during his performance last night at the Grammys.

Why was he nominated for Album of the Year (or whatever) when he cannot even hit notes in a performance?

Because, while that performance was bizarrely and horrifically off, his album was far and away one of the best of the year. Anyone who is letting his off-performance last night keep them from buying his album, please don't. It is spectacular.

by Anonymousreply 40402/11/2013

Mumford & Sons are 1 of my favorites. They are very talented musicians and it was good to see them recognized last night. They always play their asses off, and all JayZee and Beyonce could manage was 3 claps of their hands. I guess talented people are going to have to wait until gansta crap and overrated entertainers are no longer popular.

I was confused when I saw Tyler Perry dressed as Madea with a very good seat in the audience.

But I figured it out later when I realized she's an actual female and part of the band Alabama Shakes.


And as other posters here have asked, I also want to know who the guy was who spoke into the microphone as Adele was making her way up to the stage.

The first part of what he said was not clearly audible, but he finished with 'I love you Adele.' Then he calmly walked backstage as though he belonged there. Adele never saw or heard him, and J-Lo clearly looked like his presence wasn't welcome.

There were two, both fabulous: Mavis Staples was the older woman with the amazing growl; Alabama Shakes lead singer Brittany Howard was the younger woman.

Though Taylor Swift delivered the worse performance last night, I think Frank Ocean was the one who truly blew an opportunity with his lackluster performance. There's been a lot of hype about him and he's become a critic's darling with Channel Orange. But his performance last night showed he has a lot of work to do to become a good live performer. His singing was pitchy and weak; and song choice and staging were self indulgent. He blew it. A strong performance would have made him more than the R and B/hip hop singer who came out as Bisexual and the victim of a Chris Brown beatdown. Fortunately for Ocean, Brown is so vile and hateful, that at least his beating Brown for a Grammy was a redeeming aspect from last night. Ocean has talent, but he's not ready for the big time yet and I hope the hype dies down until he's better prepared.

r410, when she was your age, any real singer would be quaking in their boots if they had to share the stage with her.

Frank is a nervous black bisexual singing about a gay song on global tv, would you be in top form?

by Anonymousreply 41202/11/2013

Yes, r412.

If I agreed to perform live at a major awards show, I would have my shit together. It's called being a professional talent.

It's not like Ocean hasn't traded on this story and dealt with the fallout for the last year.

He was absolutely horrible. I don't expect a lot of the younger acts to be able to sing because that's not what the music industry is about now. I don't mean that in a snarky way-just honestly.

However, why would he agree to that when he knows he can't sing?

I've rather seen Goyte perform.

by Anonymousreply 41302/11/2013

Agreed, R408, he blew it. It was as if his voice was suffering from multiple key disorder during that performance. I was pulling for him but it was horrendous.

Please don't sleep on Alabama Shakes. Brittany Howard is on par with Adele with the "big" girls who can blow but don't care about being a size 6 in order to be relevant.

by Anonymousreply 41702/11/2013

Am I the only one who doesn't think Brittany Howard is that great?

She bellows and doesn't have any range or subtlety, either in volume or vocal range.

It seems like the industry is so devoid of decent singers that the minute someone shows up who can project or carry a tune, s/he is hyped to the stars.

Maybe I'm just too cynical. Any singers care to comment-am I being too harsh?

I can't comment on Brittany very much as I haven't heard enough of her singing to get a good feel of what she's capable of. Her appeal could be her somewhat retro bluesy sound.

The bigger question is: Why did Ellen bring Hillary Clinton as her date to The Grammys?

I think Portia will be pissed when she finds out.
