Grammys 2011: The Live Blog

53rdgrammys.jpg

WELCOME
Welcome to The Beehive’s live blog for the 2011 Grammy Awards, music’s biggest circle-jerk night. Newest updates are on the top. Your comments are encouraged — what’s the point of watching these stupid awards if not to snark it up online. One rule: NO SPOILERS please if you’ve been following the East Coast feed online.



RECAP
Sizing up the big winners of the night:

- Arcade Fire: Pretty obvious. They won album of the year and a lot of people are saying “Who?” Tomorrow, many of them will go and find out. So this obviously elevates their status out of the “indie” rock realm.

- Lady Antebellum: Winning both record of the year and song of the year will help Lady A solidify themselves as legitimate crossover stars. Add this to Taylor Swift’s dominance last year, and you’ve got back-to-back Grammys where the new country stars had a big impact.

- Esperanza Spalding: The best new artist winner has people saying “who?” more than Arcade Fire. She also seems to have pissed off the Bieber fans.

- Cee-Lo: He didn’t win any of the big awards, but he definitely got some attention with his colorful performance. It was a playful spin on a song that might have irked people because of salty language.

- Mumford & Sons/Avett Brothers: Their performances (part of a collaboration with Bob Dylan) were both well done. Since most people haven’t heard of either act, I’m sure they gained some fans this evening.



COMMENTARY
11:30: Thanks to everyone who commented along. You made it easier to watch this year. G’night!

11:29: So, final grade? I’m thinking I give a C+ just because some of the performances were good, and I was impressed with a couple of award picks.

11:27: How fitting was it that the first words from Arcade Fire when they went up to accept were “What the hell?” That’s what a whole lot of people were thinking too. Music snobs, of course, are going to be very happy with this news, as its a deserved win from a band that more people should now. This will help with that fact. And, it’s a bit amazing for an award show like the Grammys, which I expect so much less from. I have to say good job on this one, Grammys.

11:22: Now, it’s album of the year time aka the end of the show. Let’s do this thing, Grammys. I’m predicting Eminem, but I’m hoping Arcade Fire, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Gaga got it just so the Grammys seem “relevant.” Katy Perry ain’t getting nothing. And the winner is … ARCADE FIRE?!? Wow. I’m floored.

11:13: Arcade Fire is performing now with megaphones, lots of shouting and bike riders. They’re the oddball entry in album of the year (the last remaining award). I hope they win — it would be cool for the Grammys to recognize an indie rock band like them. But I REALLY don’t think that’s happening. This performance makes it clear that they don’t quite fit in with the Grammys.

11:09: OK, I’m about tired of this. Here’s a look at how the end of the show is shaping up: 21 more minutes, one more award and about five minutes of attention span left for me. Sadly, it doesn’t add up.

11:03: Time for record of the year. I’m still going with Cee-Lo on this one. But the just-performed indicator would tell me that Rihanna and Em might win. Uh oh. I hope not. We’ll find out in a second … It’s “Need You Now” by Lady A … again. Didn’t think they’d get both of them.

10:59: More Rihanna? OK, this is an odd confession, but I can’t hear this song (or any of hers, really) without thinking of the “Shy Ronnie” skit from SNL.

10:58: Going back to Nicki Minaj: I hope she slipped Lady Gaga a “Thank You” note tonight. If not for Gaga’s fame, nobody would have bought this hip-hop-ized version of her gimmick.

10:52: Wait, if I knew Nicki Minaj and Will.I.Am were up next, I might have said “More Streisand!” They’re up for best rap album … which Eminem will win, because he’s in the running for best rap album. Duh! Aaaaaand, he did. I stand by an earlier comment that Eminem put out a C record and is getting heaps of undue for praise for it.

10:49: Barbara Streizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzand.

10:47: Wait, did the Grammys forget Guru from Gang Starr on the “In Memoriam” part? Wack.

10:41: From the comments: “Is it me or is it kinda surreal that Mick is performing right after the In Memoriam portion of the show?” – Michael.

10:39: I said it when the Stones came to Fresno and I’ll say it again tonight … Mick Jagger is a helluva showman. In fact, I think he was wearing a similar green get-up when they were here.

10:33: R.I.P. to a lot of music folks.

10:30: And now for the worst part of the show: we get a lecture from the head of the Recording Academy.

10:26: I rewound to see Bieber’s reaction to not winning. He started to clap, then whipped his head around like he was shocked to not have won. Don’t worry, kid, you’ll make money more than this year than she’ll probably make in her entire career. But for now, we’re all kinda happy you took an L.

10:21: Best new artist time. While I don’t really like him, I’m rolling with Drake on this one. He’s watered-down hip-hop enough to appeal to Grammy voters. But I hope either Mumford & Sons or Florence + The Machine wins. Woah! Jazz singer Esperanza Spalding gets it. She was the total longshot. To be honest, I haven’t even heard much from her. Gotta check her out tomorrow. I’m just glad it wasn’t Bieber.

10:19: Meh, Dr. Dre. I’ll be more impressed if you ever put out “Detox.”

10:17: Good job, Eminem — perform two different songs that sound pretty much the same.

10:16: How did Maroon 5′s Adam Levine get a gig singing back-up for Eminem and Rihanna? Also: I hated this song the first time I heard it, and I hate it now … so I don’t really mind the long bleeps.

10:12: That “Like a G6″ song should not even be allowed to be played during a commercial break at the Grammys.

10:04: Song of the year is up. Nice to see Ray LaMontagne in here (check him out, if you’re not familiar). I still think it’s either “F*ck You” or “Need You Now.” We’ll see in a second … It’s Lady A for “Need You Now,” a deserved win for them. So I’m thinking Cee-Lo gets the record of the year now.

10:03: From the comments: “aww, nicole kidman stopped singing along [with Katy Perry] when she realized the camera was on her. that’s like getting caught singing in your car.” – ed

10:00: So we’re two hours into this thing. What’s your grade so far? Honestly, it hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be. Some decent performances, but not enough awards. I’ll give it a C-.

9:58: I dunno that I can stand to hear Katy Perry’s hit songs anymore … but I can always stand to look at Katy Perry. Good thing she’s not doing “Firework.”

9:56: NPH should host this thing.

9:52: Cee-Lo looks like a gladiator mixed with the San Diego Chicken. That was super gimmicky … but it was fun. Never thought I’d see the guy from Goodie M.O.B. doing that.

9:47: … And Cee-Lo wins most outlandish outfit of the night.

9:46: How does Jamie Foxx always end up on the Grammys? Right now, he’s introducing Cee-Lo.

9:45: Lady A is going to win best country album now, because they just performed. That’s how it works. See? Like every time. I joke about it each time, but I think it does signal how the awards are secondary to the performances on the Grammys.

9:43: “Need You Now” should win either song of the year or record of the year tonight … and I think Lady A just did a good job of pleading its case.

9:39: Clay Matthews (of the Packers) looks like Ian from Fresno band Strange Vine. Or is just me?

9:35: Here’s what my dog thinks of The Grammys. Sorry to be putting you through this, Bauer. Please forgive me.

bauergrammy.JPG

9:33: I was able to understand a lot more of Bob Dylan’s words that I thought I would. I guess that’s a win in Bob Dylan-land. (Sidenote: That one dude from the Avett Brothers in the suit gets down).

9:29: I’m glad the Avett Brothers got a nice spot on here. They’re good. They deserve it. Check them out, if you haven’t. They’ve played out at the Hanford Fox a couple times.

9:25: I’m hopeful for this Mumford & Sons, Avett Brothers and Bob Dylan collab.

9:23: Two awards in a row? Really? It’s best pop album with Gaga, The Bieb and Katy Perry up against each other. Probably Gaga …. and it is. She’s got a plastic butt? Must be hard to sit in that. And horns on her face? OK, that’s more of the Gaga we expect.

9:19: From Debbie in the comments: “Seriously, this is almost painful to watch – most boring show EVER!” Agree? Disagree?

9:16: Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” getting some movie commercial treatment, huh? That might be the best song I’ve heard all night. In a commercial.

9:15: Dear West Coast … DON’T go to grammy.com right now, unless you want to see all the spoilers. While I agree that’s probably a better use of your time, but then you wouldn’t get to see how fine Katy Perry is probably going to look tonight.

9:13: Best rock album time. I’m predicting Muse, since they already performed and that’s how these things tend to work. See how predictable you are, silly Grammys.

9:12: Does this song have lyrics?

9:10: Ya know, Will Smith, I always liked you. Why are you and your offspring so determined to change my mind?

9:07: I do appreciate that The Bieb started off by playing guitar before launching into the same ol’ song and dance … and here comes the the same ol’ song and dance. Ohhh, actually, it reminds of a level in “Double Dragon.”

9:05: Who bugs your more? Bieber or Will Smith’s kid? I’m going with Will Smith’s kid … until The Bieb stars in a “Teen Wolf” remake.

8:58: Could it be? Two awards in one hour? Hurry up and squeeze it in before 9 p.m., Grammys. This female country vocal award is an easy one: Miranda Lambert. And … yep, she won it.

8:57: If you’ve never checked out Janelle Monae and are the least bit intrigued by her tonight, I recommend checking out more of her music. She does some really interesting and different stuff. Nice that B.o.B. and Bruno stuck around to play guitar and drums for her. These three would make for a good tour.

8:52: I’m digging this Bruno Mars performance. Between this and whatever Cee-Lo is gonna do, I think vintage soul is gonna win tonight.

8:50: Monocles FTW!

8:49: Ryan Seacrest? Ack. Get off my TV.

8:45: Bruno Mars, B.o.B., and Janelle Monae … congrats, Grammys. You’ve managed to make me look forward to something.

8:43: While I’m very tired of this Muse song (sorry, Beehive boss Kathy), the performance was pretty good. I liked when TVs got smashed and it looked like someone was playing “Tetris” on the video screens. I’m willing to bet Muse made themselves some new fans tonight.

8:38: Wifey on Lenny Kravitz: “He looks like he climbed out of a cardboard box.” I think he looks like an extra in the 2pac/Dr. Dre “California Love” video.

8:37: I have nothing positive nor negative to say about Miranda Lambert’s performance. It was fair. It’s not beating Lady Antebellum in the major categories, though.

8:35: OK, the over/under for number of awards handed out in the first hour is two. Anybody making a bet?

8:33: Where’s the spoiler alert, Ken Malloy? I guess somebody “unexpected” wins something.

8:28: That wasn’t all that envelope-pushing, weird or even interesting. Sorry, Gaga fans. I don’t hate the song, though … yet.

8:24: Sorry, this just sounds like “Express Yourself” to me … Madonna, not N.W.A.

8:23: It’s Gaga time … she’s about to get hatched.

8:21: First award of the night for best pop performance by duo or group goes to … please not the Glee kids … please not the Glee kids … Yay! Not the Glee kids. Oh crap, it’s that annoying “Hey Soul Sista” song. Maybe the Glee kids would have been better. btw, I thought this was just a commercial jingle. It’s a real song?!?

8:19: “Why give a diamond when you can give the family jewels” says CBS, urging us dudes to check out our nards for V-Day. Does that mean if I don’t do that, then I have to give diamonds? Uh oh.

8:16: From the comments: “Well, if you’re gonna tribute, do so to excess!” So says Bee scribe Tim Sheehan. I also saw a Tweet that said “Best opening ever.” What did you guys think?

8:14: Woah. Did you see Christina Aguilera fall at the end there? I bet she’s looking forward to not doing something stupid on a national TV show next Sunday.

8:11: Of the solos, I thought it was gospel singer Yolanda Adams who brought it the best. She does, of course, have God on her side.

8:06: Am I the only one thinking this is going to devolve into “Lady Marmalade” any second now? (Sidenote: It’s nice to see Ms. Florence + The Machine get a good spot like this).

8:04: Christina Aguilera seems like she’s remembering the words.

8:02: We start with an Aretha Franklin tribute … and LL Cool J yelling a lot.

7:58 p.m.: It’s almost here. None of us are getting the next three hours back, folks. But I think “60 MInutes” had that feature on the Chilean miners before the Grammys for a little perspective. We could be trapped somewhere worse.

OPENING THOUGHTS
- My predictions in the big categories are here. Though, who knows what those crazy Grammy voters will actually do this year.

- The Grammys really need to start showing this live for the West Coast. Other award shows have started doing it — heck, the Twitter/Facebook age pretty much demands it. It’s not like the rest of the networks even care about the Grammys. They’ve got new primetime offerings tonight, instead of punting the night as a loss to “music’s biggest night.” Putting the awards on at 5 or 6 p.m. would give the Grammys a more captive audience. I just don’t now that people care enough about the Grammys to skip “Family Guy” or “Extreme Home Makeover.”

- How odd/sad is it that one of the biggest storylines of the night is “What will Lady Gaga wear?” (Maybe we just watch too much E! at my house). Is that what pop music has become? A look inside Lady Gaga’s crazy ass closet?

- Here’s an L.A. Times link on pre-show awards. You can also follow winners at grammy.com, but just know that it has spoilers.

- I hope this doesn’t suck as much as last year.

Tim Sheehan says:

Tough to avoid the spoilers when the results are posting on the home page! Don’t look, Ethel!

mdub420 says:

Probably won’t get to watch, but I’m hoping Eminem sweeps. It won’t happen, but it would be great.

Mike Oz says:

Another reason they should just show it live for us West Coasters.

mdub420 says:

I’m also rooting for my girl……….Katy perry!!!

Tim Sheehan says:

Is Christina working with a TelePrompTer tonight?

ed says:

i hate it that i look @ christina and go, ‘what happened to her?’ still love the voice, but she’s looking like she is falling apart.

Mike Oz says:

she did look a bit umm, “medicated”

Tim Sheehan says:

Well, if you’re gonna tribute, do so to excess!

559rell says:

I’m so out of the loop. Drove by the Staples Center earlier today. So THIS is what they were preparing for?!? Meh… I guess I’ll watching… zzzzz.

ed says:

i see the coming up spot and think, i must hate music now because none of that sounds interesting. i’m becoming such a grumpy old man.

Marty says:

for anyone who missed the fall

http://yfrog.com/3w9noz

ed says:

i went to the bee’s website to read stories, and dammit, saw some winners.

Michael says:

So far the best thing I’ve seen so far has been a commercial for this weeks episode of NCIS.

Marty says:

Richard Roeper tweets:

Something about the Grammys that’s always been incongruous: “We’re hipster rebels, hope we win a mainstream trophy!”

Tim Sheehan says:

The opening seems symbolic of Grammy’s penchant for mashing up performers from incongruous genres, with only occasional success. Thank goodness all of these women CAN sing.

Marty says:

I thought the opening was awesome. And I agree, Yolanda Adams sounded incredible.

ed says:

55+ year old women everywhere are ecstatic, train won!

Pete says:

Wow! Ricky…. those pants.

Michael says:

Weird. I have that same dress as Gaga.

Marty says:

one my favorite Gaga tweets

BobbyDrakeTheDJ: Lady Gaga was @ the VMAs covered in meat. She was @ the Grammys dressed as an egg. Two more red carpets & She will be a Denny’s Grand Slam.

Fher1286 says:

Do you think Lady Gaga dresses like an idiot because it distracts from her crappy music?

Pete says:

I guess undergarments are a thing of the past.

NerdMom says:

Ok, I am at about 8:05 and McBride and Hudson look bored by Aguilera’s solo.

Mike Oz says:

hahha. that’s a good one.

Tim Sheehan says:

Remember the good ol’ days when Madonna was a gimmick first and a voice second? Gaga seems very much deja vu.

Fher1286 says:

Is Lenny Kravitz wearing the old Batman costume prototype?

Tim Sheehan says:

Did Lenny K. skin that cow himself for that outfit?

Michael says:

I just remembered when the Grammys actually honored people who actually had talent.

Tim Sheehan says:

Muse? Are these guys channeling Blondie?

chango martinez says:

O M G… “i bet you didn’t know under that live oak, my favorite dog is buried in the yard…”

?!?!? that chick is creepy!!!!

Miranda Lambert, get out of my house! i’m callin’ the cops.

OzFan says:

It’s kind of hard for Kravitz’s outfit to look outlandish when it’s not raw meat.

NerdMom says:

NerdFamilyDad says he find Justin Beiber much more appealing after watching Lady Gaga perform;).

And I just want 2 know if Madonna gets a cut on the song since it sounds like Express Yourself is the foundation of that song.

Tim Sheehan says:

Sounded a lot like “Call Me” …

Mike Oz says:

I remember when they handed out awards.

ed says:

forest whitaker’s eye has a mind of its own.

ed says:

cheesy black and white effect.

Tim Sheehan says:

Bruno Mars + Janelle Monae = same hairstylist?

NerdMom says:

I am with you on the Muse’s song being over done. The performance was fine but all the other “rebels” coming out just seemed to contrived and dumb!

Fher1286 says:

I thought Jackie Wilson had come out to sing; it was Bruno Mars. :-(

Michael says:

OMG JUSTIN BIEBER AND JAYDEN SMITH??????!!! I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!1

Mdub420 says:

Nice tour indeed!! I would love if B.o.b, Bruno mars, and janelle moane to make an album together.

chango martinez says:

OH NO! Miranda Lambert?!?!?! No Way!

That squatter thinks “everyone can relate” to her song.

Get off my porch before I sick the cat on you!

Tim Sheehan says:

Sorry, Beiber, it’s gonna take more than a leather jacket to make you a bad-ass!

neumann says:

hate me some bieber but he came through with ninjas…and i can’t be mad at that

ed says:

somebody wake jeff beck up

mdub420 says:

Did anyone else flash back to revenge of the nerds and see lamar and the white kid in their heads while watching usher and the bieb perform?

Debbie Zamora says:

Seriously, this is almost painful to watch – most boring show EVER!

HarmsWayChad says:

I agree about Bruno and BoB sticking around and playing instruments! Gotta respect that!

OzFan says:

Mick Jagger is trying to be relevant to this young audience at 68 years old. This should be interesting.

Michael says:

Who’s the brunette next to Katy Perry?

neumann says:

yay madonna won again! oh wait…never mind

chango martinez says:

Leave Bieber alone! He’s amazing.

AND Donald Munro gave his movie a “B”. That’s high praise from that hard a**.

Tim Sheehan says:

Gaga knew she could be whatever she wanted when she grew up … so she chose THIS??!!

OzFan says:

Mumford and Sons sound great. Great band. Very poetic.

Mike Oz says:

Agree. I’m hopeful for them in the best new artist category.

neumann says:

really diggin me some mumford right now…its a refreshing change from the typical sound of pop on the grammys

HarmsWayChad says:

Hmmmm doesnt seem like a collaboration just yet! Hopefully they come together!

chango martinez says:

they look like they were trained by animal from “the muppets.”

dmk says:

The Grammy’s will always showcase some odd-balls and some great talent- You just can’t compare each year!

I’m digging this set however-

Tim Sheehan says:

I knew CBS wouldn’t be doing subtitles for Dylan’s performance.

HarmsWayChad says:

Bob just isnt bob anymore……

jankynola says:

here’s my prediction, mumford and sons and avett=best part of the show…too bad there’s 2 hours left….

Jody Murray says:

Dylan is Dylan. I’m really digging the collabs so far. They’re getting ‘em right. More collabs, less dancers!

jankynola says:

Lady Antebellum is cool. Not gonna lie.

OzFan says:

Lady Antebellum sound great, but I can’t handle that “Need you Now” song. Overplayed.

neumann says:

Please come through Ceelo…please

Michael says:

Oh great. It’s a male version of Gaga.

neumann says:

goddamn ceelo…you just beat gaga this year for crazy

OzFan says:

Really surprised by Gwyneth Paltrow’s voice. Who knew?

neumann says:

cocains a hell of a drug

OzFan says:

Really surprised by Gwyneth Paltrow’s voice. Who knew?

Tim Sheehan says:

Does this Cee-Lo fellow typically parody Elton John?

jankynola says:

I didnt know Cee Lo was both a peacock and a Mardi Gras Indian!!

ed says:

whoever thought standing a tall, skinny woman on top of a piano next to a short, fat man was a good idea doesn’t understand how to construct a good shot.

Jody Murray says:

Fraggle Rock for Song of the Year!

Lucia says:

I was impressed by Gwyenth. I enjoyed the performance. Cee Lo has quite the voice.

Marty says:

can’t beat the Muppets and Cee-Lo – best of the night?

Michael says:

Katy Perry is performing right now and somewhere Hmac is throwing objects at the tv and yelling obsenities.

neumann says:

its sad that this isn’t the worst part of the night…way to go grammys yet another winning effort

ed says:

aww, nicole kidman stopped singing along when she realized the camera was on her. that’s like getting caught singing in your car.

Heather says:

Elton circa Muppet Show forever. #ceelo

mdub420 says:

I didn’t know gwyneth could sing. Good job and great job by clo and the puppets.

Marty says:

Actually HMac has been hanging at The Brig all night and I don’t think she’s thinking about the Grammys. Acc. to her last tweet she’s doing “Walk Like an Egyptian” in celebration of the Egyptian revolution – go HMac!

jankynola says:

Dear Katy Perry, no one wants to see your wedding video but you!

jessica says:

just catchin up on dvr. Thinking if Gaga doesn’t want people saying she rips off Madonna…she should probably stop ripping off Madonna!
Seriously-the song, the ponytail, she even Vogued! I guess girl’s got some nerve.

ed says:

i’m glad eminem stopped dying his hair. now, if he’d just realize he’s on broadcast tv and self-censor so we didn’t have large blank audio chunks.

Nick Haas says:

Who is the other female performer during this Eminem/Rhianna song?

Lucia says:

Loved Adam Levine playing the piano!

neumann says:

do we need a doctor? im thinking its not that bad of a thing…diggin the beat just a bit…love me some angry em

Mike Oz says:

It’s actually a different song called “I Need a Doctor.” It’s a Dr. Dre song ft. Eminem. The girl is Skylar Grey.

Debbie Zamora says:

Love the dog pic! Classic, Mike!

Jody Murray says:

Kinda says something when Bieber not getting New Artist is the slam-dunk best moment of the night.

Michael says:

For not being an Ememin fan, I dug the performance.

And Bieber got denied! Nice!

Lucia says:

Lovin Mick Jagger!

Michael says:

Is it me or is it kinda surreal that Mick is performing right after the In Memoriam portion of the show?

jankynola says:

I was more impressed with the chick singing the Dr. Dre song. Skylar Grey. Can’t wait to hear more from her!!

neumann says:

surprise of the night…there is a god…the proof…esperanza spalding

neumann says:

mic jagger hasnt lost a step…just his mind

Betsey says:

Who knew Nicole Kidman had a personality?

Marty says:

Mick! Old man can still bring it.

jankynola says:

I don’t wanna jinx myself. But, I’m thinking my earlier prediction holds true. Mumford & Sons were robbed of Best New Artist!

Lucia says:

This was a pretty boring Grammy’s for the most part, but I loved the little surprise guest appearances thrown in there.

Betsey says:

She released an album called “Like Blood, Like Honey” in 2006 and it is amazing. It’s under a different name, “Holly Brook.” Same person. Enjoy!

jankynola says:

ok. seriously? Is there something wrong with me? I think Babs is simply terrible! What am I missing here? Help me out people!!

John R. says:

Someone save me, immediately!

Fher1286 says:

I think Kristofferson drank all the complimentary drinks.

ed says:

what the hell is grimace doing on stage?

neumann says:

what the hell will….you look worse than niki…go roots

Michael says:

Damn Ememin’s ears are huge!!

John R. says:

was em’s shirt tucked into his underwear????

jankynola says:

Oh no she di’int! Is Nicki Minaj in Hairspray on Broadway or what?!

neumann says:

they did forget guru…thats a bunch of bullshi!…im not surprised though…punk ass grammys

OzFan says:

Jagger and Streisand gave some great performances and didn’t need outlandish clothes or theatrics to do it.

neumann says:

puff…what up with the grill and the lined up hair?! DOUBLE DOPE

Heather says:

Props to you, M.O. You coulda been singing and imbibing at the Brig with the rest of us sinners, but you’re working this freak show on a Sunday night.

ed says:

did puffy have braces? check out his bottom teeth.

neumann says:

this preformance is more boring than streisand…zzzzzzzz

Mike Oz says:

Either that or diamonds.

Michael says:

What’s up with the dude with the Hitler comb over?

Betsey says:

I feel like this is what an arcade would sound like if it were actually on fire. Yeah, I don’t get it.

Godogs21 says:

Arcade Fire should win album of the year. If not, I watched all night for nothing

neumann says:

as the show closes i look back in retrospect and wonder why when i have to be at work at 5am i stayed to watch this train wreck and how i managed to fall into this deep dark abyss…if anyone can help me this out i would much appreciated it

Mike Oz says:

I’m pretty sure you watched all night for nothing — or at least you watched all night so you could say you watched all night for nothing because the Grammys are lame.

Mike Oz says:

‘Cause you love to talk sh*t? Nonetheless, we’re happy to stayed up with us, sir.

Godogs21 says:

Either way I watched all night for nothing. I do think they by far have the best album this year. Their performance kinda sucked but the Grammy’s should recognize them.

neumann says:

wow…first esperanza and now arcade fire…now the grammys are just messing with us

neumann says:

i am quite the fan of sh*t talking…it was quite enjoyable an enjoyably snarky night sir, thank you as well

Mike Oz says:

I take it all back, man.
But I’m happy I was wrong.

ed says:

i wonder if the 2nd arcade fire song was planned or the grammy people just rolled with it?

Wienzer says:

Didn’t watch the Grammys but loving the Arcade Fire reaction on the tubes this morning
