I've never had any love for Stevie, so I'll leave her out of this....

Swift was big time FLAT, even before Stevie joined her on stage. All I know of Taylor Swift is that she's nice to look at, she writes her own songs (which are very corny), and she's the hottest thing is showbidness. For anyone who knows anything more about this young lady, can she sing on key, or is she just another miracle of the studio's modern technology?? She sounded pretty bad tonight.

I would still rather hear a performer be a bit flat than to see them lip sync.
I give them all credit.

I really don't know that much about her vocal prowess per se, but I've heard her Fearless album about 1,000 times as my daughter got it for Christmas.

Her songs certainly do sound corny to adult ears, but I will give her credit for writing songs that really resonate with the age group of her fans. She's one of those artists that writes a song about every big event in her life (yes, I know she's 20, how many events has she had, LOL) and that really draws her young fans in. I'm not the biggest fan of the corporate-country style, but I have no problem with my duaghter listening to her.

I will also say that the Taylor Koa Wood Acoustic Custom she plays is one beautiful guitar...

I liked the Les Paul tribute by J Beck. And his new bassist did a creditable job singing the Mary Ford part. Nice hairdo too!

I agree with what was said above.
I really enjoyed the Pink performance-not the singing but the acrobatics.
I also enjoyed the tribute to MJ with Smokey and others
I most enjoyed Jeff Beck and his Les Paul tribute. Him actually playing a Les Paul was a treat since he is a strat man now.

No doubt! She was so flat in her performance with Stevie. I felt embarrassed for her. Good to see/hear Waddy and Stevie, though.

The Pink performance was pretty amazing. Don't listen to her much but I liked that song and the acrobatics was very cool.

So that's Jeff's new bassist that was singing with him? Loved their tribute to Les Paul.

So good to see Leon up there playing. He's still got it!

The rock critic on the local paper usually has a humorous take on things...thought this review was funny...

quote:
Grammy Watch: It's the music, stupid

The producers of this year's Grammy Awards show made it clear from the start that the show was going to me more about the stars and their performances than the handing out of trophies.


Before the show hit its 30-minute mark, viewers had witnessed two music extravaganzas -- the requisite Elton John duet (this time with Lady Gaga) and the musical rendition of Green Day's "21 Gun" -- and a Beyonce medley that included a few randy verses from the Alanis Morissette 15-year-old hit, "You Oughta Know" -- a song off an album that has sold 16 million copies in the U.S. Those days must feel like make-believe for an industry that goes ga-ga when a record breaks the 1 million mark.

The Gaga number was an like an ordination: a way to introduce viewers to her look (Disney meets Marilyn Manson), her music (industrial pop/dance) and her voice and musicality (she's a singer and a player).

After Beyonce's performance, Taylor Swift had about 45 seconds to accept her award for best country album; then Pink came out for a Vegas-style number that included some of her own aerial-fabric maneuvers. Apparently the Recording Acacemy realizes that even though the live performances may not help move a lot of records, they''re a better promotional vehicle than a lot of chit-chat and thank-yous.

As in other years, this Grammy show fused the music industry's past with its present and future: John performed with Gaga; Leon Russell performed with the Zac Brown Band; Smokey Robinson joined Celine Dion, Usher, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson in the Michael Jackson tribute. And the presenters were often duos like Alice Cooper/Katy Perry or Ringo with Norah Jones (daughter of his old pal Ravi Shankar).

The night set itself up as another showdown between Swift and Beyonce, who were in the middle of that Kanye West garbage at the VMA's in September. Long before the broadcast started, Beyonce had won four already, all in the R&B category: for best song and female vocal ("Single Ladies..."); best album ("I Am ... Sasha Fierce"); and traditional performance ("At Last," from the film "Cadillac Records"). She has been nominated for 10 awards. Taylor Swift (eight nominations) has three: best country album and female vocal and best song for "White Horse." Lady Gaga won two before show time: best dance recording, best electronic/dance album.

Random observations:

The Black Eyed Peas sucked. I've seen better dancing at my kids' fifth-grade recitals.

It's too bad the Silversun Pickups didn't win best new artist (Zac Brown Band did). They could have thanked the producer of their first album, which was released in 2006.

Lady Antebellum: 95 percent '70s soft rock; 4 percent pop; 1 percent country.

Ringo!

The Kings of Leon (record of the year) just crossed a line from which there is no return.

King of Rehab Robert Downey Jr. introduces Jamie Foxx who sings 'Blame It On the Alcohol.' Nice. Always good to see Slash, but that thing was a mess -- like three minutes of dry heaves and nose-blowing. Almost made me long for the Black Eyed Peas.

Alice Cooper's hair > Katy Perry's hair

Hate that chicken fried song, but Zac Brown Band is a real band. Pretty sure that was the "Seinfeld" pirate/puffy shirt. Always good to see Leon Russell, even though most of the house had no idea who he was.

Ryan Seacrest introduces Taylor Swift: like naugahyde introducing polyester. Swift kisses Stevie Nicks' ring and then destroys part of "Rhiannon." Where's lip-synching when you need it?

The best part of that Michael Jackson tribute was the hipster crowd in 3-D glasses.

Bon Jovi must have some big dirt on CBS. They don't translate via TV. More like "Livin' Off Our Hair."

Adam Sandler: the Taylor Swift of comedic actors.

DMB comes on ... and a silence descends upon every frat house in the country. Among the 94 people on stage, local hero Matt Chalk was the guy on the far left in the DMB horn section.

Maxwell ... can damn sing.

Jeff Beck ... can damn play.

Quentin Tarantino: You are still not black.And Robin WIlliams wants his shtick back.

Either they were censoring Lil Wayne/Eminem/Drake or CBS conveniently suffered some tech difficulties during their rap/rock inferno. (I'm no rap fan, but that was fun.)

Lady Gaga looks like she's being eaten by origami.

After proving demonstrably that she wouldn't survive Round 1 of "American Idol," Taylor Swift wins album of the year.

Oops, the singer something May I believe is not the bassist. It is Rhonda Smith. Whoever Ms May is, she did great.

Ah ha. Irish rockabilly singer Imelda May. Have never heard her before but she did a good job with Jeff on this tribute.

The Grammy Awards took a brief detour to the middle of last century last night, when guitarist Jeff Beck led a cover of “How High the Moon” in honor of the late Les Paul. Lead vocals were handled by someone you might not have recognized, but who’s already a sizable star in her native Ireland and the U.K.: Rockabilly singer Imelda May.

Taylor Swift CANNOT sing...she's friggin' tone deaf. The only reason her albums sound good is due to ProTools pitch correction technology. I've seen her on various LIVE TV shows and she's consistently off-pitch...either flat or shorp, but never ON pitch. She's friggin' horrible....now her pal, Colbie Callait on the other hand..she's good, really good, let's hope she can eventually make everyone forget Taylor Swift at some point.

I think it was in USA Today, or whatever that paper is called, where writers of an article
on the Grammy's came out just last week saying that Taylor Swift does indeed have a lot of trouble singing on key in live performances. As I recall I think they were questioning her vocal skills big time.




Oh, and the same writer thought Pink was a far superior singer.


That being said, I didn't catch the show.




I've said it here before, Taylor Swift can't sing. She is the 'hot artist' of right now. She can write songs, but can't carry a note too well.

I've watched her performances on these awards shows and on other shows since she's everywhere now, and always try to listen objectively, but she just doesn't have the power or range that she should have to attain this level of success.

Pink on the other hand is way underrated. I grudgingly went with my wife to see her in Philly last year, and she was awesome. She's a great singer, and really puts her all into the performances. That circus act she does, whille singing is quite impressive.

Another female singer that doesn't get enough credit is Joss Stone. Wish she got the credit she deserves, instead of the flavor of the minute club that tends to show up at the Grammys.

There were more musical highlights on the show this year than more recent years'. Hope it's a trend that continues. Anything that keeps rap on the sidlines is ok by me.

I was too busy watching hockey. I have come to detest these awards shows. I knew they wouldn't even show DTB's category on the TV show. It is nothing but mainstream commercial drivel IMO.

I just saw this on the Yahoo entertainment page:

Taylor Swift's Big Grammy Fumble & Other Memorable Moments
Posted Mon Feb 1, 2010 12:43pm PST by Verena von Pfetten in And The Winner Is...
While every televised event is prone to plenty of unplanned moments, the evening's award for most Grammy gaffes has to go to the night's big winner, America's country sweetheart Taylor Swift.
Swift set the blunder bar high during a particularly off-key duet with industry veteran Stevie Nicks--who herself seemed to struggle with hitting the high notes. But in what was undoubtedly the clumsy climax of the evening, butterfingered Swift broke one of her Grammy trophies. While attempting to pose with all four of her awards for photographers backstage, the 20-year-old songstress dropped one of them, smashing it into pieces.
Taylor's night might have been salvaged by her Album of the Year win, but seeing Beyoncé's disappointment written all over her face and the look of outright disdain from Lady Gaga likely put a damper on her big moment.


Ahh, I love the last little bit of intrique... All that was needed was a good old fasioned diva catfight.
