What we didn't need from the 47th Grammy's.
23 February 2005 | by (Bristol, CT) – See all my reviews

I got stuck watching this year's awards show on my down time at work. I must say that I liked the emphasis on performances over the awards. Too bad the performances weren't all that great.

The opening segment didn't need to have all of those guys perform at once. Was it because we'll never see them again? We didn't need to have Gretchen Wilson covered up more than a nun in winter and butcher "Sweet Home Alabama" with Lynrd Skynrd. We didn't need to hear a horribly voiced JLo duet with her infinitely more talented husband Marc Anthony. We didn't need to hear Alicia Keys impress us with her piano skills...again, and Jamie Foxx, while quite talented, should dial it back a bit.

We didn't need to hear Queen Latifa sing. There are likely better, yet starving singers out there who probably scratched their heads watching that. We didn't need the sappy ballad from U2, who could have done "All Because of You", since it hadn't been milked in a commercial. We didn't need to see Kanye West "murdered" during his act, but at least his acceptance speech was cool.

Green Day woke everyone up from all this with their hyper performance "American Idiot," the best rock performance on the Grammy's since Metallica performed "One." Oh, to long for those days again.

The Grammy's have always been a sham, and they may never get their act together when it comes to grouping the nominees and awarding those who truly deserve it. This year was no real exception.
