I usually blast the Grammy's for having pop artists lip-synching while doing overblown crappy dance numbers, and giving awards to people who put out crappy music, but this year was different.


There were some standout performances, from relatively new artists, including The Weeknd, Tori Kelly with James Bay, Alabama Shakes and 12 year old jazz pianist Joey Alexander. 


There were tributes. The Eagles with Jackson Browne doing 'Take it Easy' in memory of Glenn Frey, Stevie Wonder with Pentatonix honoring Maurice White, and my favorite, 'Chris Stapleton, Gary Clark Jr. and Bonnie Raitt doing BB King's 'The Thrill is Gone'.


Lady Gaga's tribute to David Bowie was, like her, at times weird but good. 


There were some sound problems and several performers had vocal issues, but that's what you get with live music vs. lip-synching, and I'm ok with that. 


This was the first time in a long time that I've felt it was about the music, and it was pretty good.

Did not see it, had to work.  But from the news reports you'd think it was about that idiot Kanye....?   Why do so many people like his so called "music"....?   Can't stand his stuff.  

And Gary Clark Jr. is great, seen him twice now.  I'll have to look up that Thrill is Gone cover on youtube.  I'm glad I got to see BB a few times before he died.  Chris

We turned it off to watch the Walking Dead! (That was good!) :P


The only performances I really cared for was the Eagles tribute, and I watched Gaga's performance online. I thought that was cool, especially the first part. 


The Lionel Ritchie one was a snoozefest. Like the Bowie tribute, I wish they would have just focused on one song. The medley approach just makes it too jarring.

The Stevie Wonder/Pentatonix tribute to Earth Wind & Fire was amazing. Google it....you will not be disappointed
