I love award season. I love singing. Heck, I love music; maybe not as much as other, but I still do love it. One would only put the two and two together that I would love The Grammy's, yes? Well, I don't... at least not usually.
But you know that if Adele is singing, I'm going to be watching. Adele is my girl.
So let me recap the night's highlights for you if you missed it:
1. It seems like there are a lot more country music stars at the Grammy's then ever before.
2. Apparently, if you are in the music business and not a country music star or Adele, you have to dress like Lady Gaga... or at least attempt it.... or your stylist is playing a cruel joke on you.
3. If Adele is nominated, she will win. She went home with 6 new shiny Grammy's. And I can sigh a breath of relief after hearing her sing last night, all is well with that magnificent voice.
4. Jennifer Hudson sang a tear-inducing tribute to Whitney Houston.
Tangent: the soundtrack to The Bodyguard was one of the first pop culture albums I remember listening to. I knew practically every word to ever song. I bawled when Jennifer Hudson sang last night, bawled.
5. There was a tribute to The Rhinestone Cowboy himself, Glenn Campbell... I never would have guessed that I like his music, but I think I need to get me some.
6. Bon Iver looks like a regular, balding dude who is extremely awkward at receiving awards.
7. Taylor Swift gave the best performance I've ever seen from her yet... but then kind of ruined it with the innocent "I'm so surprised by the standing ovation!" Girl, you can't be all that surprised by this point, can you?
8. The Beach Boy tribute was also incredible. I feel like I grew up with them, too, because they were practically on Full House every other episode.
9. Fergie wore the ugliest dress ever, if you can even call it that.
10. I like Paul McCartney's new (I'm guessing it's new?) song "My Valentine."
Well, I think that catches you up. So basically the performances at The Grammy's are The Grammy's, and I enjoyed it more than usual.
