They told me not to miss the first five minutes of the Grammys, so like the mass media sheep I am, I'm not missing it.
So far we've had the Black Eyed Peas preach about tolerance (as near as I can make out; they're pretty difficult to understand, what with all the shouting and flailing their arms). This is an interesting (read: hypocritical) message coming from a band that originally called it's recent hit "Let's Get Retarded."
And now we have a duet between Gwen Stefani and Eve. It's official - Gwen Stefani is insane:
Los Lonely Boys follows the freakishness. These people can actually play - what are they doing on the Grammys?
Maroon 5 - shut up, Adam Levine, you big whiner. And stop trying to dress like Paul Weller circa The Jam.
Someone from the Black Eyed Peas - am I supposed to bother to learn his name? - just threw a guitar to Adam Levine (unfortunately it didn't hit him in the forehead) and they dueted a bit. *yawn*
OH YES. HELLO. Franz Ferdinand! This makes all the crap I've just sat through worth it. Dear god, the Franz guitarist is all sorts of cool. "Take Me Out" indeed.
And now all the bands are doing some sort of weird collage of their songs. Someone is breakdancing on the floor. Franz Ferdinand is standing there looking cool. Oh, and there's The Edge in the crowd. Good way to end.
*exits stage right*
ETA: Just have to add one thing - Marc Anthony looks like a reanimated corpse.Posted by Highwaygirl on February 13, 2005 08:15 PM to the category Entertainment
