#15: The Grammys

February 9, 2009

Every few years I actually watch the Grammys and pay attention. Really the biggest thing I took away from this year’s Grammys is that Alison Krauss is a Grammy magnet. In the last 18 years, Krauss has picked up 26 Grammys, including five at the ’09 awards show.

Other than that, I felt the Grammys were lackluster. I wanted to enjoy the performances more, but the audio quality really detracted from that. I’m sure it sounded great in the building they were in, but over the television…not so much.

Though I missed out on some of the earlier performances of the evening like Taylor Swift and Stevie Wonder, I really enjoyed what I could make out of Radiohead’s “15 Step” and T.I. and Justin Timberlake’s “Dead and Gone”. I also enjoyed seeing Sir Paul break out an old Beatles tune with Dave Grohl’s unkept hair flailing aimlessly.

I really didn’t see enough of the show to have an overall feeling for whether or not it was better or worse than other shows I’ve seen, but I definitely enjoyed the parts that I watched.

    It seemed like a pretty good show overall…that is, it held my interest, even though I a) didn’t see most of it, and b) was asleep for half of what we did watch. 😉
