The Grammy's

The Grammy's seem hell-bent on mashing together "old" acts with "new" acts. This year's example was the improbable matching up of Stevie Wonder with the Jonas Brothers. I'm not sure I understand the connection.

Other thoughts:
- Carrie Underwood played to her strengths--her voice and her looks--in her performance. But, the poor girl continues to battle a lack of stage charisma.
- Any show that opens with U2 is starting from a position of power but has nowhere but down to go.
- T.I. and J.T. rocked. How impressive a talent is Timberlake?
- Jennifer Hudson followed up on her incredible Super Bowl national anthem performance with another knockout showcasing of her talents. She looked great too!

  1. I agree, there were some odd pairings at the Grammy's this year. One "old" with "new" pairing that I loved was Al Green, Justin Timberlake, Boyz II Men and Keith Urban. At first I thought it was completely random, but they were great together! Timberlake is definitely a talent. Another pairing that a liked was Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift... both young and their voices worked well together. I will say that I'm much more of a Taylor fan that a Miley fan.
