adele-mainSomething in the air at the Grammys, first of all, Adele won five Grammys which includes, an album of the year, song of the year, record of the year, pop vocal album, and pop solo performance.  While Beyonce won for Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best Music Video for her song Formation, which was taken from the album Lemonade.

The 59th GRAMMY Awards - Roaming Show

Other winners of the show that weren’t broadcast, because music is a huge category and the show is only 3 hours and some minutes long. They were announced early during the broadcast. If they have broadcast the whole event it would be either 5 to 6 hours and the expectance speech will be longer and boring too. Bathroom break! Or even better a nap break!

Carol Brunette she won for Best Spoken Word Album: Carol Burnett, In Such Good Company: Eleven Years Of Laughter, Mayhem and Fun in the Sandbox. Previous winner was Obama.

If you wondering Star Wars: The Force Awakens won for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media: John Williams.

This is strange, The Flintstone won for Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals: Jacob Collier.  Watch it below.

I know what you doing now is humming to the theme song of the Flintstone in your office.

Patton Oswalt

And for Comedy Album Patton Oswalt, he visited Seth Myers a couple of weeks ago to talk about her comedy album, and he is hysterically funny to watch.

Did you know during the commercial break, they were showing highlights of previous winners of the past for the audience members? Highlights included Beyoncé and Prince covering “Purple Rain” in 2004; Elton John singing “Stan” with Eminem in 2001, and Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus duetting on “Fifteen” back in 2009, that was interesting. I hope they do the same thing for the Oscars in 2017, show old movie clips from the past or even better the complete longer version of the people who died within the year and added the lasted person who died in the recent hours.

After winning the award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their hit song “Stressed Out,” Twenty One Pilots members Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun immediately got up and removed their pants, choosing to walk up to the podium in their underwear.

Of course, you can remove your pants when watching the Grammys in your home.  We can’t see you, but at the Grammys, everyone can see you, that would be embarrassing. Feel free to do anything at home. But don’t do it in the office or workplace, they are rules.

James Corden followed it up by stripping down to his underwear to introduce Ed Sheeran.

Keep your pants on.

Before the show start, the executive producer told, if you win let your voices heard or stick what you wanted to say. They only have either one minute or a minute and forty-five second. As long they keep it short and to the point. And always thank the people who helped them to further their career.

American Idol Kristen O’Connor Luck Out

DSCF0009

What a way to start a show all the contestants sang “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragon by singing and dancing through the corridors of the studio like follow the leader with each contestant singing their part of the song, which was a popular song they had sang during the audition of American Idol, like a whimsical musical number.

Kristen O’Connor went home last night, she sang Kelly Clarkson’s “Beautiful Disaster” and it wasn’t that good, it wasn’t a disaster but it was good. However, the second song she sang was “Turning Tables” by Adele was much better and more control. Unfortunately, the judges could not save her and so she was eliminated. The judges thought her song was not in tune and did not connect to the audience.  I wonder do these contestants hear themselves singing with an earpiece to get the right tone and voice control.  She will go home to Sebastian, Florida.

Candice Glover sang “Cried” and “Same Kinda Man.” Her voice was incredible. Did she slim down a little? She looked gorgeous with sparkles. I need to get some sparkles for myself too.

Then there was Jake Bugg, Keith Urban’s chosen “tastemaker” special guest. This guy has a very unique and consistent voice and his own album at age 17. The season 13 hopefuls watched him from the couches, possibly thinking “Huh. Why doesn’t this lucky bastard have to emote?” Well, because that lucky bastard isn’t competing to connect on camera. Take a lesson contestant. He went with the right sources and he did it good. He has people skills.
