2009 Grammys - 10:00 pm

(adele and jennifer nettles of sugarland)

Paul McCartney finished his song to a standing ovation from the audience. The oldies in the audience were especially thrilled, most of them were probably not lucky enough to have been in Shea Stadium in 1965, the pre-pubes in the audience looked like they weren't sure who Paul McCartney was... it's okay, you little dumbasses, maybe someone will text you and explain it to you.
Hank Jones receives a Lifetime Achievement Award, and Jack Black announces that the winner of the "Best Male Pop Vocal" is John Mayer for "Say". Mayer starts to take the stage, we fast forward.
Sugarland started to perform, we fast forwarded. Adele sings "Chasing Pavements", and damn, that girl has a voice. We want a duet between her and Jennifer Hudson. Then suddenly, in the middle of the song, the female lead singer from Sugarland appeared and started to duet "Pavements" with Adele. Adele had this look on her face like, "What the f**k, I don't even get to sing my huge international hit by myself?" Major diss of a huge future star, not smart, Grammys.
A very skinny Gwyneth Paltrow introduces Radiohead, whose performance was backed by the USC Trojan Marching Band. What would you like to bet that some of the current Trojans are the kids of the Trojans who performed "Tusk" with Fleetwood Mac? It was a great performance, probably one of the best of the night. But there's not a Grammy category for "Best Rock Performance, By a Duo or Group, Backed by a University or College Marching Band, on a Tuesday...In a Leap Year"? What's the deal with that?

We're cutting back to the Baftas where they're about to give out the rest of the major awards.
