Winners at the Grammys

It’s good to have AC/DC to open the show for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night. The adults may like it, but their children or teens may not know them. They think AC/DC is an outlet that sings – if they touch the outlet, they will sing. It will ZAP the children and cool hairstyles.

Anyway AC/DC sang “Rock or Bust” and their classic “Highway to Hell” from the 70s and 80s.

The winner with the most awards goes to Sam Smith, who took home four awards: Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist, and Best Pop Vocal Album. Beating out Iggy Azalea and Taylor swift. Taylor Swift won so many times, it’s time for the new people to get a chance.

Kanye West thought some singers who are winning Grammies are not artist, if they are not artist, should they win a coloring book and crayons? And draw themselves Grammies? They are artist, take a note Kanye and stop complaining. Be an artist and show us what you can do.  Win something. Kanye is an artist. Or give Kanye West a color book and crayons to be quite.

Beyoncé, Pharrell Williams and Roseanne Cash all won three awards, as did Beck’s “Morning Phase,” which took Album of the Year honors. Kanye West like to crash in people expectant speeches. Give Kanye West something to do, make him hand out awards to the winners, if he runs away with one of them. You know where to find him.

Grammy performers that includes Kanye West (twice – obviously), Rihanna, Paul McCartney, AC/DC, Madonna, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani, Sia and Usher.  Which one did you like?  I still like Sia, her performance was fantastic.  Mrianda Lambert was good but she was bleep or silence by the censors, I wonder what she sang.

And it looked like Prince was annoyed of presenting awards. Could they get Michael Jackson to come back from the dead to present an award?
