Postby CNB » Thu Feb 09, 2017 8:47 pm

I can't believe this Beyoncé album has 9 nominations:

Why does it surprise you? It's just business as usual. I'm wondering who is going to win this year (not really :lol: ) and what tributes Lady Gaga is going to butcher ;)

We had a discussion on this forum (a couple of years ago) about "Bo Rap" losing Grammy to this song:

The Beyoncé album is great so I can understand why it's up for a lot of awards but...

Justin Bieber is up for album of the year but Radiohead isn't? Their new album is a beautiful masterpiece and critics and fans adore it. That award show is terrible joke.

Ah, they just sang my song with my all-time favorite singer, Neil!

But the stage mics don't seem loud enough! Could hardly hear Bruno just now!

Unbelievable, Adele! No one else would get away with that!

So give her 10 more Grammys!

:roll: You missed the point. It was done as a tribute. And she pulled it off, like it or not.
Kudos to her, it's not easy I dare say pulling a tribute off in the first place, let alone when GM's passing is so recent. I'm not going to hold her having to start over against her. She did it, and that is what counts. I like her even more now, because if anything it proved people can make mistakes, carry on, be emotional, and still pull if off. That's Adele for what it's worth.
Besides, her opening the show Hello was also good IMO, unless you want to moan about that too. All in all, she did very good indeed IMO,, she won at least 2 Grammy's tonight.

Well she might have been having ear piece problems because the sound has been bad for everyone, so she did good the second time around. She has done that before at an award show and on her tour. But she's a diva, so it's okay!

No, she isn't a diva. Not even close.
The only sound issue I might've noticed was the Metallica/GaGa set, it looked like James tried to sing at the beginning,but no sound, camera went to GaGa.
Did you just see her speech? She apologised and loves/loved George. So understandable from where I look at it. Clearly she was emotional, and clearly she pulled it off, so what point are you trying to make? Credit and kudos to Adele, she is human like the rest of us after all.

The Prince tribute is going on now! And it's GOOD!

Yes, I know. Bruno is awesome! Such energy! I think my second favorite part of the night.
Adele was my favorite tonight. She stood out to me more than Beyonce, Metallica, everyone else, and I mean that in a good way. :D
Bee Gee's music was fun, I was grooving to that :D

Why did it have to take David Bowie DYING to get the poor bastard to win anything? Why couldn't his unique talents have been lauded and applauded during his lifetime, or are they just giving him awards now to appear 'cool'? The Grammys AND the Brits are nothing but crap nowadays.

That hit me too. Big time. It jarred me two of my favorite artists for years were not there last night. And how I wish they were, because they would've torn the roof of the place.
There is always upset that some people's gave don't end up nominated, win, perform, but Bowie and GM fans had it hard last night, as those two great men were not there. Such a shame. Every time Bowie won, I cried. He is still missed.
