The Police delivered, though I would have preferred "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic" over "Roxanne." Still, great to see their energy and enthusiasm.
Carrie Underwood is mind-bendingly good for someone who just popped on the scene post American-Idol. What presence!
I've loved Mary J. Blige for awhile so I'm gratified to see her win big.
We *loved* the girl paired with Justin Timberlake for the duet. Could you believe she got up there and performed like such a pro after just hearing her name announced moments before? Great voice, cute personality, total confidence. Gotta love all this reality TV infiltration into every aspect of television now.
Sorry that Corrine Bailey Rae and James Blunt will go home without Grammys.
Dixie Chicks are getting a lot of Grammy gold off of retaliating at the public for shunning them for their anti-American speech in Britain. (Footnote of interest: Cincinnati radio stations refused to play their music after that and I've never heard "Not Ready to Make Nice" on the radio... ever.)
Red Hot Chili Peppers are too fun.
So we wait now for Album of the Year.... and no surprise. Dixie Chicks. What do you think?
