Haha, take THAT Chris Brown!
I don't know if I should admit this but I thought Justin Timberlake was excellent.
Yay Frank Ocean!
I think Justin Timberlake was amazing. I think it is just that a lot of people don't care for such heavily R&B influenced music and/or they still expect him to pull out the N'Sync sound. I have a feeling Timberlake will be winning a LOT of Grammy's next year.
I love The Black Keys! Yay!
I have to say, everyone is sounding really good tonight. So many awards shows have horrible sound and the artists can't hear themselves so they go completely off key. They must have everything worked out really well.
Really disappointed the Grammies didn't do a tribute to Dick Clark except for that one little clip.
I am loving this mashup of Maroon 5 and Alicia Keys.
Yay! Kelly wins. It is best pop VOCAL. And she is one of the best.
That scream you just heard was Brian's reaction to Kelly winning
I wanted Florence to win
you didn't see Adele? That was a train wreck.
I may be crying and I did completely queen out. I did not expect that AT ALL. Florence would have been a great choice, Lara, I agree. That category was actually really stacked. Kelly has now won this award twice.
By the way, this is the 2nd time Kelly has won this award and both times she won over someone who was nominated for Album of the Year yet she did not get that nomination. I guess the voters just think that Kelly's sound and voice defines Pop best but maybe the material isn't worthy of a general Album of the Year nomination?
Congrats to Kelly, although I was hoping it would go to Florence.
In fairness I've nothing against Kelly herself - congrats to her.
One more thing to brag about and I will stop, lol. Kelly is the ONLY artist to ever win Pop Vocal Album more than once.
And very well deserved. Kelly has one of the most amazing voices around. Although I was rooting for Florence, Kelly is a more than deserving winner.
I agree BigB08822. Rihanna sounds better than I've ever heard her, but I'm not a fan of the song.
Disappointed that Gotye beat out M83 for Best Alt. Album, but I guess it's not a surprise.
I think this is a very pretty song but it makes for a very boring television performance. She has certainly improved her vocals a ton, though.
I am thinking Record of the Year will go to this group, The Black Keys. Although Fun. seems the more logical choice.
Love The Black Keys. Hope they beat out Fun.
Kelly singing Patti Page-divine.
Enjoyed the SD music. Nice timing this year!
Kelly sounded simply amazing.
I think this is so funny that Bruno Mars is performing with Sting because when his song came out I could not stop thinking about how much the guitar riff resembled a Sting song. (or maybe it was The Police...)
NOT loving Rihanna's weave......go away Rihanna, you're ruining the Bob Marley tribute!
Is Nicole Kidman sitting behind Keith Urban or does he just keep standing in front of her?
So wanted Florence to win.
Me too. I love Kelly's voice, but I thought Florence's album as a whole was a lot more interesting.
Is Jack White making some kind of political statement about feminism? lol
I agree. I thought it was one of the best albums all year.
Since Keith is music and she is acting, I think Nicole is deferring to him, oh and also, she's taller so is in back?
I think one thing holding Florence back is that she doesn't get much, if any, play on Pop radio. I think that does come into consideration in the Pop categories, probably more so than any other categories. Florence is getting Pop play now thanks to her collaboration with Calvin Harris so that could open the door for her on Pop radio for her next solo album.
Just to clarify, I don't think it should matter who gets the most radio play but I am just saying what I think could affect the voters.
