    You know, with some people, it's not shtick. Just occasionally, you run into someone who actually has humility.

    Wait, Adele has a last name??

    If Madonna at 50 can invoke high school imagery, we have years more of ingenue Taylor to look forward to. I'm guessing her young fans just ignore the guys she's dated, or at least John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal. I agree, though, that the "surprised" Taylor look has now become more annying than endearing and I have a perception of real phoniness with her now. But, I do think she's a savvy young woman and give her credit for that.

    Lord knows given yesterday I'm not going to knock Taylor Swift for being clean cut and not touching drugs...but yeah, I can see how some people would get tired of it.

    Eta - not the no drugs, just the innocence in general.

    Second award for Adele. :cheer:

    Don't worry, Katy AND Taylor fall in that crowd :p

    Actually, I think Katy can put on a way better show than Taylor. I kinda enjoyed the fireworks. :p

    Could Perry channel Gaga a bit more? (Gaga shot fireworks out her boobs at the MuchMusic Video Awards a few years ago, before Perry, btw)

    Absolutely, but she's been playing the same "who, meeee?" note for so long, it just doesn't feel legitimate anymore.

    Katy's got flaming Terminator's out there. Is this song new? Or is just really good timing for her after the split? I can see this becoming a dumped, empowered chick anthem.

    Did anyone give Katy the memo that only Beyonce can sing and dance at the same time.

    She's hoping to sell another 2 or 3 records.

    Eh, I'd prefer Fireworks, or better yet Lea Michele doing Fireworks. :lol:

    Wow. Lady Antebellum. I expected Blake or Jason to take that one.

    Katy did a great job! Surprised by that LA win, but not unhappy!

    I'm over Lady A. And that's an unfortunate dress on her.

    Bring back Miranda! And Blake! :D

    Katy Perry songs are better when Lea Michele does them :)

    Or Glee! The cover of Teenage Dream was amazing. One of my favorite songs of last year.

    Eh, I find Lea Michelle's poses worse than Taylor's fake 'gee whiz' stuff. :p

    Loved how they show Adele drinking water. :lol:

    Totally. I keep being surprised when I hear the Katy Perry version, because the Glee one is the only one I listen to.

    I actually don't mind her, and I like her clean-cut image. It's the fact that she has the EXACT SAME REACTION that's starting to come across as phony and put on.

    Lea Michelle is on Glee. But I know what you mean. I really liked that Warblers version of Teenage Dream.

    Adele has lost a lot of weight.

    Knocking it out the park, natch. Love her.
