Am I the only one who thinks these Grammy performances are flat and boring so far?
Adele had no spark. The Weeknd was blah. Beyonce is going nothing for me.

I'm sticking around for the promise of a great tribute.

Exactly! ESPECIALLY the "Bey" stint that's on now (eye roll)...had to change the channel on that one.
Suffering through this ONLY for the Prince tribute


She's done. Go back to it. LOL
They should have opened with the Prince-Beyonce 2004 That had spark, melody, movement and excitement.
Zzzzzz
Wake me up.

Yes. Just awful so far. And why have Adele open the show with such a dreary song? And Beyoncé got a standing O for no other reason than she's Beyoncé.

He was good but maybe I missed it but we have not heard anything about who will be doing the tribute. So far this show as been really boring. Who is Skip Marley's Dad. Why so many country artist?

I know she started over.
But this is the worst of GM's songs. It's more about her being able to sing it in her predictable style than his musicality.

Why can't they just play George's versions of the songs in a compilation. That was dreary. I can only imagine how bad P's is going to be. The Time using the opportunity to promote themselves and Bruno singing the over-played "Let's Go Crazy". At least Adele's tribute had some heart and she didn't pick the most obvious George Michael song on the planet. But I can't help that she made it a bit too much about herself.

Do you all see tyka's reaction to her starting over..>LOL.

No, it wasn't the best GM song, didn't see tyka's reaction..dammit. I am with you..they should just play P's music with images of him. I think I would lose it though.

At least she picked a song that wasn't obvious. Unlike the supposed song used for Prince because no on is going to rush out and listen to Prince music when they do "Let's Go Crazy" for the five millionth time. The Time might get attention however and I don't know how I feel about that.

We complain because we had a huge loss and this awards show is 90% teasers for what's coming up.
Enjoy your major purchases.

Metallica's (Hedfield?) mic being off was another glitch.
But they figured it out, sang from one and then it got fixed.
No drama. No cursing.

She was in the audience. I bet this clip will be reshown on youtube. CHeck it out.

So far I liked Bruno Mars, sturgill Simpson with the horns from Sharon JOnes and the Dap kings, and the duet of Maren Morris and Alicia Keys. The rest of the performances--blah...I don't even really like country music but they both came to play.

And an all-star Bee-Gee tribute...really? I like the Bee-Gees but why this year?

The Tribute to The Bee--Gees (half the members are still alive)--was a far better tribute than the one to George Michael.

They did the BeeGees tribute to advertise that new CBS show called "Staying Alive" or something like that.
They are only giving out TEN awards during this show.
