My Review on the 48th Grammys
Well, I do loved the opening act - very refreshing and i think its a challenge to put something like that together. Gorillaz & Madonna were awesome and the entire performance set the tone of the rest of the other performances. I've also like performances from U2 & Mary J Blige too.. Nice collabration.
Wasn't surprised to see U2 and Green Day snap up the top awards coz I've have the gut feeling they are going to win too.
Kelly Clarkson's wins and performance is also stunning...Pleasant surprised that she did in fact won 2 awards.
Predicted that Mariah Carey can only win those R&B categories as her other opponents are much stronger in all the various categories. I'm glad that she was shun out from the top categories as that would add into the hype to make people think she's the best for the year. Which I don't really think so.
Hype also surround Kanye West and John Legend, both of whom won 3 Grammys each together with Mariah Carey.
I personally thought Gwen Stefani should have won at least one award though... But you can never predict such things...After all, look at Elvis and The Beatles - How many Grammys had they won? R&B and hip pop may be ruling the airwaves, but i do believe that Grammys do honor the best in music, thus with so many of them winning at least one award. But each year, voters may various and example like Ray Charles nominations were quite clear that he was the biggest winner of the night - (sentimental reasons of course), which I'm not fully supporting but hey, those living artistes can still pick up and try again... in the years to come!
