    Driving home from work today, I heard that U2 and Mary J. Blige were going to be performing together on the Grammys, so I made it a point to catch at least that performance.

    Needless to say, she was awful! I was expecting her at any minute her shove Bono off the stage and frontline the whole performance of One. That and her screaming and jumping around like a maniac really ruined what could have been a good duet. I understand getting into the song during the a performance, but she really was really ridiculous.

    It was almost like I was watching a SNL skit. (And Bono didn't seem to thrilled about it either).

    What did everyone else think?

    Mariah Carey's number was the only non-flat line moment of the night.

    Missed U2 and Mary performance, but I just caught Jay-Z, Linkin Park, and then Paul McCartney joining in! I thought they did great but I love them all so much so I might be biased!

    Lord, Fantasia sounded more like Tina Turner----that voice is so more irritating though! I hadn't heard it since she won AI 2 years ago so it freaked me out!

    I waited all night for LP and Jay-Z. And then Paul McCartney comes out of nowhere. Good show.

    Mary J. Blige has always been annoying. Plus it's the grammys, what do you expect from the Mcdonalds of music awards?

    Mariah's performance was AMAZING. Great vocal performance.

    She's won 3 Grammy's tonight, bringing her total up to 5. Unfortunately, these were not televised and she's lost 2/3 "big ones." I'm so proud of her wins -- but We Belong Together was the EASILY the biggest song this year, and it's been snubbed TWICE! Figures, Mariah's been snubbed at the Grammy's the past 15 years :mad: :mad:

    Ok, that is what I thought! Mariah is awesome! :)

    Now I LOVE Christina Aguilera, and of course she looked and sang fabulous---but did she ever sing any words in that song??? It was a lot of yeeeaaahhhhh, oooooohhhhhs--it kind of annoyed me! I still cannot wait for her new album--she is long overdue for some new songs!! :)

    Moooriah? She's awful.

    U2 won, but Kanye lost. I'd be happy for either really.

    What happened to the days when a Grammy was given to people with talent. Now all they do is give it to who ever sells the most. Why all the achievement awards that used to be a sacred thing and now they are giving them out every 5 minutes.

    It all started with Little League Baseball where little Johnny and Melvin had to get their trophies too, even though they mostly sat the bench, played one inning in right field and cried whenever they struck out? Just a guess. :p

    The Grammies have never mattered to me. I think I've actually avoided some albums specifically because they won grammies.

    Christina is a good singer the problem is that she over sings which makes her sound like an American Idol contestant. As for Kelly Clarkson, Im surprised that she has lasted and actually has talent.
