Lots of Lousy Performances
I'm not much of a Taylor Swift fan, but I thought she opened the show well. After that, it was pretty much downhill until the last 45 minutes or so -- thank goodness for Carrie Underwood, Camilla Cabello, Panic at the Disco and Gladys Knight for bright moments. The rest of the performances were mediocre at best. They say that music has peaks and valleys -- this is clearly a time of valleys as so many of the nominees just produce garbage. And this show clearly doesn't understand what "pop/rock" means as most of the winners in those categories are neither pop nor rock. Finally, can we please, please never have Tracy Ellis Ross ever host again? She's dreadful. How she has any career in TV is beyond me.
