My thoughts on the Grammys last night:

1. Nothing replaces good — or even great voices.

2. LL Cool was a surprisingly effective host.

3. Paul McCartney still has it in spades.

4. Jennifer Hudson was the perfect choice for the Whitney Houston tribute.

5. Foo Fighters had a lot of air time which was a GOOD thing!!

6. Taylor Swift deserved her long standing O. Best performance by her on TV in a long time.

6. Nicki Minaj usually entertains but that was a hot mess last night. I kept wanting to see Lady Gaga – she would’ve done a better job. Very disappointing.

7. What Nicki Minaj unwittingly proved last night is that all the flash in the world doesn’t impress as does a simple straight forward singing of a song — think Little Surfer Girl by Maroon 5 – or Alicia Keys and Bonnie Raitt – those  speak volumes other than all that nonesense.

8. I always love the Grammys because of the mix of genres all on one night.

Oh and ADELE ROCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
