    Well, in the spirit of saying something nice- Chris Brown's set is awesome.

    Ugh, Chris Brown. I just can't deal with his resurgence. Totally undeserved.

    Why waste something nice on Chris Brown? :p Save it for Nicki Minaj when we'll really be grasping. :lol:

    Some day I want backup dancers wearing surgical masks to accompany me around. However, I want Brown's to pull out scalpels and make him into a eunuch.

    :rolleyes:

    I guess because some folks have let by gones be bygones and given him another chance.

    Folks still give applause and accolades to James Brown, even knowing his past history with abuse and dating underage women.

    I like Fergie's dress, but I think it would look better without the black lingerie.

    Lace Doily and Skelator presenting. :shuffle: 2 people who have very little to do with rap.

    No Kanye - Taylor Swift must be thrilled.

    When did Reba MCINTIRE drop her last name? :p

    Not a fan of this song. I can tell they're already drowning out the singers on it.

    Kelly looks fabulous! :cool:

    So bummed Kanye's not there. Who will save us from Swift's likely insufferable performance now? But seriously, glad he and Jay-Z won. Watch The Throne was such a great album.

    I like Kelly Clarkson's red sequinned mic.

    Completely agree. I was surprised Kanye's Album wasn't nominated for best Rap Album.

    I need a list of who is performing when so I can plan my zombie watching. Do I DVR WD and Downton Abbey and watch the Grammys? Watch WD and DVR Downton Abby? What to do? I have to use one of the upstairs DVRs to do two which requires I go up there and program one. So many decisions. :drama:

    Are these the poor asses as opposed to the rich asses in the auditorium?

    It seems every Sunday there's something to conflict with Downton Abbey and my DVR is full post-Nats. :drama:

    Someday I need to listen to a full Foos album. I wouldn't say I love but they sure do rock!

    I suspect I'd rather hear an original Foster The People song than a joint Beach Boys appearance...

    Argh. They won't tell us who is performing when, until the artist is actually on stage. I only know the the Civil Wars are singing just before Taylor because they said it in their interview after they won their two (they won both categories Yay!) Grammys in the pre-live show.

    Live singing. Live rock. No autotune. Audience on their feet. This is music. Real music. #grammys

    I'm anxious to see how Rhianna performs; Usually she does not sound good live.

    I'm behind, but Adele looks beautiful, like old Hollywood royalty. And I'm loving the shorter hair.

    True. She's awful live, actually.

    I know, she's hot. Karl Lagerfeld is an asshat.

    Last year, if I remember correctly, she was sick when she performed with Adam Levine and Eminem, so she had a really hard time.

    Rhianna actually sounds decent here. Too bad she looks a hot mess.

    How does Rhianna remember these lyrics? ( I kinda like the song though) And why did she decide to wear Tina Turner's hair.
