Grammy Awards 2013 – Live Blog, Winner List, Photos

Congratulations to both Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood! They each one a Grammy Award! Kelly won Best Pop Vocal Album for her Stronger album. And Carrie won Best Country Solo Performance for “Blown Away.” Earlier, the “Blown Away” songwriters won the Best Country Song award.

Both Carrie and Kelly performed magnificently during the telecast. Check out Kelly’s tribute to Patti Page and Carole King.  Watch Carrie sing “Blown Away/Two Black Cadillacs”

I’ll be live blogging the Grammy Awards 2013 right here!  Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Maroon 5 and more will perform!

Click for a list of the awards handed out earlier today

Taylor Swift opens the show with her hit song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and an Alice in Wonderland thing going on.  She ad libs a line in a British accent. Hm. BACKING TRACKS FOR THE WIN.

Host LL Cool J takes the stage. LL is recycling the bit he was going to do last year…before he had to give up his part of the show to a Whitney Houston tribute.  Hometown audience shout outs: Carrie Underwood, Adele, Gotye, Rihanna, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake.

Fun Fact: LL gave his Grammys to his grandma to take care of. “A Grammy is a dream come true.”

The next performers: Ed Sheeran and Elton John! What a perfect pairing. They do a duet of Ed’s hit “The A Team.

X Factor winner, Tate Stevens’,  Pepsi “Holler if You’re With Me” commercial airs.  CBS got that right out of the way.

Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez present the first award of the night. Jlo says, “As you can see, I read the memo” She’s referring to the CBS dress code.  She’s got major leg going tonight.  Best Pop Solo Performance goes to Adele for “Set Fire to the Rain.”  She thanks all of the other nominees, and breezes off of the stage…

Neil Patrick Harris takes the stage introduces fun. They perform “Carry On”.  Lead singer, Nate Ruess is  slightly underpitch through the entire song, and it’s driving me a little crazy.  It’s a rainstrom! Literally, it’s raining on stage and it’s very dramatic.  The band is soaking wet.  Nate is wearing  capri thingies.

Bonnie Raitt and John Mayer take the stage “two guitar slinging Grammy winners.”  John congratulates her for winning her 10th Grammy, earlier (She won Best Americana Album). They introduce Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley, who duet on their hits,  “Over You” and “Home.”  Dierks fiddles with his ear piece. Are they having trouble hearing the feed? They are both kinda pitchy, dawg.  “Home” is an improvement, but the whole performance is rough.  Standing ovation from Blake Shelton in the audience. 

Miguel and Wiz Kalifa take the stage.  That was a little mini performance before they present Best Country Solo Performance to Carrie Underwood for “Blown Away”! Congrats Carrie! Carrie thanks the good Lord that she’s a part of country music. She tearfully thanks Simon Fuller, her family, her “amazing perfect husband.”   “Blown Away” was awarded Best Song at the pre-Grammy telecast. Congrats all around.

Faith Hill and Tim McGraw present Song of the Year to  Jack Antonoff, Jeff Bhasker, Andrew Dost & Nate Ruess, writers of the .fun song, “We Are Young”. LENA DUNHAM SHOUTOUT. She’s dating one of the boys in the band.

Johnny Depp takes the stage to introduce “the sublime” Mumford and Sons who sing “I Will Wait.”  Taylor Swift rocking out!

It takes both Beyonce  AND Ellen Degeneres to introduce the highly anticipated performance from Justin Timberlake, He performs “Suit and Tie” with a black and white big band behind him. Very elegant.  Here comes Jay-Z to join him on stage. RAPPING.  The new songs are REALLY good.

Kelly Rowland and NAS take the stage to present Best Urban Contemporary Album to Frank Ocean for Channel Orange.  Hell yes. FRANK KICKS CHRIS BROWN’S ASS. As it should be.

Dave Grohl presents Best Rock Performance to The Black Keys for Lonely Boy.

Alicia Keys and Maroon 5 sing “Girl on Fire” and “Daylight.”  Maroon 5 kick it off with “Daylight”.   Eh. That was more like two stars kinda sorta sharing the stage to sing. I am also super, super sick of “Girl on Fire”.

Keith Urban presents Best Pop Vocal Album to Kelly Clarkson for her “Stronger” album! YAYYYYYY. Kelly Clarkson delivers AN ADORABLE ACCEPTANCE SPEECH.  “Miguel, I don’t know who the hell you are, but we’ve got to sing together. ”  Blake Shelton was grinning from ear to ear. She thanks her fiance, of course and declares several times “I DIDN’T THINK I WAS GOING TO WIN.”

Kelly Clarkson’s Adorable Acceptance Speech


Kelly Clarkson Accepts Award Best Pop Vocal… by IdolxMuzic

Rihanna takes the stage to sing I hope my boyfriend doesn’t beat the shit out of me tonight “Stay”. Mykko joins her on stage. This is actually really good–very emotional performance. He situation is so sad, I can’t even, really.

Carly Rae Jepsen and Ne-Yo take the stage to present Best Rap Song Collaboration to “No Church in the Wild” Jay-Z & Kanye West Featuring Frank Ocean & The-Dream. Jay-Z to The Dream “”I would like to thank the swap meet for his hat.”

Kat Dennings from Two Broke Girls introduces The Black Keys who perform “Lonely Boy”  It’s down, and it’s dirty and it’s GOOD.

Kelly Clarkson takes the stage! She sings a tribute to Patti Page and Carole King. She begins with “Tennessee Waltz” and finishes with “Natural Woman.”   She just freaking killed it. KILLED IT. One of the performances of the night  WOW. Kelly rarely disappoints. She presents Best Country Album to Zac Brown Band for “Uncaged”.

Next, is a tribute to the great Bob Marley.  Bruno Mars sings “Locked Out of Heaven.”  STING joins him on stage. Fitting. No? Since the song is practically a rip off of a  Police  song. And that morphs effortlessly into “Walking on the Moon.”  Wait…when does the Bob Marley tribute begin?  Now, when Rihanna and Ziggy Marley join them on stage to sing “Could You Be Love.”

The Lumineers take the stage with that “Ho Hey” song  HO HO HO HEY HEY.  Erm. Camera guy? Seeking out Taylor Swift, who is consciously rocking out, at every opportunity, is beginning to bug.

Next, it’s the super-fabulous Jack White.  Rootsy, Rootsy Punk Rock in 2013.  RAW AND READY Y’ALL.  One of the best performances of the night. So happy to see rock represented in such a fierce fashion.

Katy Perry, DID NOT GET THE CBS MEMO in her boob baring green dress! She presents Best New Artist to fun. Or FUN! as she screamed it. Oh. That’s kind of a surprise. I figured Frank Ocean would take that, even though he’s not really “new” per se . But I guess fun. isn’t either. So many “new artists” nominees aren’t really new. Has anybody ever dug up the rule for that category?

Hunter Hayes takes the stage, he sings a line from one of his songs, before he introduces the gal he’s been on tour with, Carrie Underwood.  Carrie sings “Blown Away” wearing a gorgeous princess dress.  The arrangement is acoustic, more or less, with guitar and strings.  “Two Black Cadillacs” is next.  Carrie sounds FANTASTIC tonight. She’s got a video deal happening on her big dress.  Now. her dress lights up. It looks like a Rorschach test.

Prince takes the stage! Wait. Does he need that cane he’s carrying, or is it just a prop? He presents Record of the Year to  Gotye for “Somebody That I Used to Know.”  Prince takes off his sunglasses for the occasion.  Gotye is totally starstruck! Which is sweet. “Oh I like this song,” said Prince before he announced the award.

We’re back, and a tribute to Dave Brubeck by Chick Corea, is in full swing. “Take 5″.

After, Neil Portnoy from Grammy and Ryan Seacrest take the stage to talk about The Grammy Foundation. Fun Fact: Ryan is the chairman.  Justin Timberlake takes the stage to introduce The Music Educator Award, which will be introduced next year. But now, you can nominate your favorite teacher. This is awkward. And boring

Next…it’s “In Memorium” which leads into a tribute to the late Levon Helm.  Elton John, Zac Brown, T Bone Burnett, Mavis Staples, Mumford and Sons, Brittany Howard perform “The Weight” by The Band.

Juanes sings “Your Song”  by Elton John before he introduces Frank Ocean who sings “Forrest Gump.”  Graphics of small town life flash behind him. He stands behind a podium with running legs superimposed. This is odd.  Frank is not a great live singer, although his songs are pretty damn genius.

Adele presents Album of the Year to Mumford and Sons for “Babel”. They weren’t expecting to win, with the Black Keys cleaning up.  Mumford guy compliments to Adele and her Grammy outfit!

LL Cool J performs the finale with Chuck D, Tom Morello and Travis Barker. We aren’t gonna see the whole thing. Sads.

    Love that there’s a live blog…will poke in! :D

  • supersonic

    Keith’s hair is getting too long.  He needs a little cut.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    So Taylor ended up opening the Grammy’s after all. A pretty lavish production, but she’s still not a good singer, live. lol

  • http://twitter.com/LexieONeill Lexie O’Neill

    Must say it…why would any self-respecting guy date Taylor Swift, ever?  

  • http://twitter.com/LexieONeill Lexie O’Neill

    Oh, and if Taylor ever makes the slightest claim to being country…

  • supersonic

    So that he can have a song about himself?

  • too-cool-for-school

    All of the production in the world cannot make Taylor an exciting performer to me, lol.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    L.L. Cool J. is a really good host for this show.

  • John M

    This is boring

  • fuzzywuzzy

    It all seems like an attempt to distract attention from her poor singing. lol

  • supersonic

    Can’t they just have LL on stage all night?  No awards or performances.  Just LL.

  • too-cool-for-school

    Agreed! Now if she was on the stilts and could stay on key, I might be impressed. :P

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Ed Sheeran is playing a baby guitar. lol

  • John M

    I wish this was just Ed Sheeran

  • too-cool-for-school

    Ed Sheeran has a nice voice but his lyrics are so bland to me. 

  • supersonic

    This is boring.  This is this Ed Sheeran dude everybody loses their mind about?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    It’s interesting that this song needs a certain kind of singer, and Elton isn’t that kind of singer. 

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I have to say that I don’t get all the excitement about Ed Sheeran.

  • elliegrll

    Tate’s song didn’t sound as bad in the commercial as it does on the Itunes preview.

  • elliegrll

    Tate’s song didn’t sound as bad in the commercial as it does on the Itunes preview.

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    Not to be rude…but the legendary ELton John is ruining Ed Sheeran’s song. Why did they make it a duet? Sorry…

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    Mumford and Sons performance will be my bathroom break.

  • supersonic

    After seeing him tonight, I don’t either.

  • supersonic

    Jennifer Lopez is totally breaking the dress code.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Are there mainly industry people at the Grammy’s, or are fans there too?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Geez. Adele won enough Grammy’s last year, and it’s a bit of a cheat that she won for a live performance (on the Royal Albert Hall concert DVD) of a song that was really released the year before.

  • supersonic

    Adele!  I want to be her when I grow up.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Yeah, that’s why she’s drawing attention to her dress. lol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I’m not optimistic for Kelly now. I thought that Best Pop Vocal Performance was her best shot at an award tonight.

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    Love Fun. My favourite album of last year. Hands down. They always sound awesome live! XOXO…

  • too-cool-for-school

    I love Adele but I never want to hear that particular song again. XD

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I missed the intro. Who are these guys? The lead singer is pitchy. lol

  • supersonic

    fun — someone else I don’t get the madness over.  This guy can’t sing at all.

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    true dat.

  • http://twitter.com/RonnieDRocks Ronnie D

     Wow. This singer for the band fun. wouldn’t make it past the Hollywood Round on AI lol. He sound horrible to me. Set Fire to the Rain is an amaaazing song. I’m happy with Adele getting another Grammy lol.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    This is fun? Lots of autotune needed on their recordings. lol

  • FinalFantasy13

    this guys voice is annoying he made taylor swift sound like pro..

  • too-cool-for-school

    I wish there had been rain to downpour on her performance instead of theirs. >:)

  • Kitwana

    I like Kelly but I did not like Stronger. So glad Adele won best female pop performance. She deserves it. At 24, I think Adele is poised to rule the pop charts for years. She’s like a younger, more talented version of Kelly Clarkson.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I love Adele too, but I don’t see much similarity between her and Kelly.

  • http://twitter.com/RonnieDRocks Ronnie D

    Its nice reviewing all of the music from the past year. So many great artists and songs from all genres this year. Thanks for this live blog tonight!

  • supersonic

    Yeah.  He is terrible.  I sound better than him.

  • too-cool-for-school

    I am looking forward to Mumford. I don’t know if they will win any awards, so I can just bittersweetly enjoy the performances!

  • HappyDaisy_2

    Oh.  I thought maybe the roof was leaking.  Kind of like the power outage at the Super Bowl.

    Guess not…

    :)

  • supersonic

    What in the blue hell is John Mayer wearing?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    It looks like a bright royal blue velvet or velour tuxedo. lol

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HWRPW434YQTROZ3J5E4BSLWEYM H.A.

    All these overhyped performers Fun, Ed Sheeran, Frank Ocean etc.. are just that overhyped. Adele deserved that win. Set Fire The Rain is an amazing song.

  • too-cool-for-school

    Looks like the bad interior and cheesy velour seats of an 1980s/90s vehicle…

  • http://twitter.com/RonnieDRocks Ronnie D

    Katy Perry looks amazing tonight.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HWRPW434YQTROZ3J5E4BSLWEYM H.A.

    Love, love, love Miranda Lambert.

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    why is Miranda Lambert singing a Cassadee Pope song??

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    Yes and… Wow…they’re so BIG!

  • tucker davis

    Did someone tell Miranda that dress was flattering?

  • too-cool-for-school

    Miranda looks really pretty! This is a good performance, also.

  • jersey

    It seems as if Miranda Lambert’s and Dirks Bentley’s mikes aren’t working properly

  • http://twitter.com/LexieONeill Lexie O’Neill

    Dierks Bentley…own everything he’s ever done–and am proud of that.:))

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/2GSMAIVVJS4KFW5L3XHBUO46DA LUCIE

    I like that first Miranda’ song but hmmmmm her dress is not flattering.

  • too-cool-for-school

    Looks like what she usually wears to me, haha.

  • supersonic

    Wow.  This is pretty boring.  Hate to call a Miranda Lambert performance boring, but there it is.

  • http://twitter.com/RonnieDRocks Ronnie D

    This guy country singer sounds like Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan mixed together. Not good lol

  • tucker davis

    Love Miranda’s voice!

  • too-cool-for-school

    Wiz Khilafia (if I spelled that correctly) seems to ruin most every song he appears in. Another example is presenting itself now, lol

  • http://twitter.com/RonnieDRocks Ronnie D

    Yikes that rap song was self indulgent rubbish. lol

  • Banished

    Live performances pretty awful so far, though Migel? sounds okay…never heard anything he sang yet!  Also sounds like no one in the audience is paying any attention.. all chattering.. Can they PLEASE put a stop to songs with the title “Home”?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Congrats to Carrie!

  • too-cool-for-school

    Yay for Carrie!

  • tucker davis

    Yea Carrie!!! Way to beat the boys!

  • CB40

    Kelly deserved to win, but that’s OK, she still gets to perform tonight!

  • too-cool-for-school

    I have no patience for all of these commercials.

  • http://twitter.com/RonnieDRocks Ronnie D

     They aren’t my cup of tea that’s for sure lol

  • supersonic

    Congrats to Carrie.  I think Blown Away has replaced Some Hearts as my favorite Carrie Underwood song.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Great looking couple. I love Tim McGraw.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Aw, Carly is being a really good sport. Nice!

  • Banished

    We are young is an awesome song to sing along to. Glad it won. Just a make you happy kind of song!

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    Yay Fun. good going boys…

  • Jordana33

    I love Fun too and I really hope they win a Grammy. I don’t care if the lead singer’s live voice isn’t great. They released some of the best songs this past year! 

  • supersonic

    What the hell happened to Johnny Depp?

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    Ahaha! mine neither! :D

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Nothing. He usually looks like that. lol

  • HappyDaisy_2

    Which one’s Mumford and which are the sons?

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    Here’s Mumford and Sons…4 WGWG and/or banjos. Time to pee and floss my teeth…

  • supersonic

    fun wins Song of the Year with their singer sounding horrible.  And Lena Dunham looked awful, as usual.

    I don’t get the madness over Mumford & Sons, either.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    These guys are country artists, right?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HWRPW434YQTROZ3J5E4BSLWEYM H.A.

    Can Mumford & Sons and all their reject copy cats go away.

  • HappyDaisy_2

    Folk rock or something?

    Or something…

  • too-cool-for-school

    Rock/folk :)

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Really? I like most folk music, but these guys sound like country artists to me.

  • http://twitter.com/RonnieDRocks Ronnie D

    The keyboardist for Mumford and Sons is fine hehe. I think it’s nice that roots music is popular. It’s totally opposite of the electronic sound that has permeated most pop music.

  • too-cool-for-school

    I love them, and Johnny Depp. So I am pleased. ;D

  • jersey

    Apparently not a popular opinion here but I LOVE Mumford and Sons.

  • Banished

     Rap

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HWRPW434YQTROZ3J5E4BSLWEYM H.A.

    Americana.

  • supersonic

    Timberlake is coming up?  Revenge is coming on just in time.

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    Mumford and Sons are horrible. Banjo wars. Be original, dudes…

  • MellyPer1692

    Yayayayay I love Fun!!!

  • CFIdolsfan

    Glad to have caught some of the Grammys. Can’t watch all of it live. I like Mumford & Sons, too, and Johnny Depp as well. I know Phillip Phillips has been compared to them. My youngest son, age 10, heard the intro to their performance and asked if it was Phillip, lol.

  • HappyDaisy_2

    Is Timberlake gonna bring the sexy back?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/5HGXDY5SA4QJRME7OQJXRJYE4M James M.

    I love the song Blown Away.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Americana sounds like the best category for their music to me. It’s OK, but I’m not a fan (too country-ish for my tastes).

  • too-cool-for-school

    I’m with you! Looking forward to their other performance.

  • http://twitter.com/sportslovin R Gray Shaw

    I think Kelly might not win any… We Are Young winning means that Fun might also take Pop Vocal Album (which I think is just wrong, while I love fun and their music, the auto tuning on tracks alone should be a consideration…), now Song of the Year, I can understand them winning as they judge the song and not the vocal… Record of The Year is a long shot, and I thought she might have won the Pop Vocal Performance, but the general peers just love Adele, so not really surprised with that… Anyways, it’s not like she doesn’t have any (she won 2 already), but I think she deserves more….

  • Banished

     Is it weird that I don’t listen to Justin T. on the radio or buy his music, but I adore his live performances?

    Mr. Beyonce joins Timberlake.

    Just starting to watch the show on my DVR, so I know I’m late, but can someone please explain to me the Alice in Wonderland connection to her “We Are Never Getting Back together” song?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Well, clearly I’m not the target audience for this song by Justin with Jay-Z. lol

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HWRPW434YQTROZ3J5E4BSLWEYM H.A.

    Lol, at Justin getting Jay-Z to help him save that shitty song.

  • supersonic

    He never brought it in the first place.

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    no, not weird. He’s cute to look at…that’s why. hello??

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “can someone please explain to me the Alice in Wonderland connection to her “We Are Never Getting Back together” song?”

    There isn’t any connection. lol

  • jersey

    I like Justin better in the movies. Loved him in Trouble With The Curve.

  • HappyDaisy_2

    This is…

    noisy.

    I was expecting something a little different.

  • Banished

    Ha! My 13 year old son just asked me if he was that guy from Glee!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    For you JT fans out there, would you consider these two songs good? I can’t tell. lol

  • http://twitter.com/RonnieDRocks Ronnie D

    Justin Timberlakes set reminds me of the Lawrence Welk show hehe

  • Jordana33

    I think their sound is a mixture of country and folk-rock, depending on the song. They’re from the England, which might explain why they don’t go by the “country” label. 

  • too-cool-for-school

    To get the hoopla over Mumford, you have to like the banjo… a lot. My sister hates them because of it, lol…. thinks they are repetitive. And their lyrics are probably an acquired taste but I like ‘em!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I was impressed by JT in that movie too.

  • guinness 416

    I’m the same.  I always forget he can dance.  He looks kind of Beckhamish tonight.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PSHFTD4YV3QOE3INABJUXZSWMU hillstreetblooz

     He brought SexyBack… He’s now bringing R&B back. Hmmph, I didn’t know it had gone anywhere, lol… I predict a resurgence in R&B flavored music and songs beginning to invade the airwaves slowly but surely on Top 40…

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I have to say that I’m disappointed with the performances (and vocals) so far. Hopefully, Adele, Carrie and Kelly will raise the bar significantly.

  • http://twitter.com/RonnieDRocks Ronnie D

     Justins sound is pretty different than the dance oriented stuff he used to do.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HWRPW434YQTROZ3J5E4BSLWEYM H.A.

    Justin hasn’t brought the SexyBack.

  • kayd23

    I really liked JT’s performance. 

  • too-cool-for-school

    I liked JT! It’s an interesting direction for him. Not a huge fan of that song but I’m interested to hear his other new material.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PSHFTD4YV3QOE3INABJUXZSWMU hillstreetblooz

     SexyBack is sooo 2006… Mission accomplished for him with that.  Justin’s going full bore into becoming the R&B soul man he’s always wanted to be with these songs and the upcoming album… we’ll see how it works out for him…

  • supersonic

    Dave Grohl!  Foo Fighters should be performing, dammit.

  • Kitwana

    Suit and Tie is a horrible comeback single for Justin. He better have a killer second single.

  • jersey

    Glad the Black Keys won.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PSHFTD4YV3QOE3INABJUXZSWMU hillstreetblooz

    I’m only watching for Kelly and Jack White… Hoping he really kills it – it’s rare seeing him on these kind of shows…

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Adam is sounding good on this song.

  • supersonic

    Maroon 5 and Alicia Keys.  Yes.  Keep putting these people that I don’t care about in this hour so that I can watch Revenge.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HWRPW434YQTROZ3J5E4BSLWEYM H.A.

     Instead of Foo Fighters we get Adam Levine and Maroon 5

  • too-cool-for-school

    ‘Girl on Fire’ must disappear.

  • http://www.twitter.com/sarahruth3 Sarah

    Yessss. So glad the Black Keys won.

    Kelly & Carrie need to perform soon. I don’t think I’m gonna make it much past 10. :-/

  • supersonic
    Instead of Foo Fighters we get Adam Levine and Maroon 5

    It’s sad, really.

  • Kitwana

    Hillstreetblooz: I think Justin is right to try for a new sound. More SexyBack would not work. That was 7 years ago, a lifetime in pop. He was 24/25 then and 32 now. It’s probably right to go for a more mature sound. He could really go the Michael Buble route. Suit and Tie is just the wrong song.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Girl on Fire” is definitely one of her weaker songs, and IMO, an odd choice for a single. However, she does tend to perform it well live…..

    I like JT’s new songs. I think he’s going to pull a Beyonce and have an album that hits big time on the R&B charts but doesn’t crossover.

  • quickjessie

    Ri – I just cannot like this girl as I think she’s nuts.  The whole thing with Chris Brown just nauseates me.  Plus I think she’s very overrated as a singer.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Well, at least it appears that Rhianna is singing live. lol

  • Valentin432

    Congrats Kelly, after the pop performance category I didn’t think she would win one. I guess Adele would win anything she is nominated for. 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PSHFTD4YV3QOE3INABJUXZSWMU hillstreetblooz

     we don’t know if Suit and tie is the right or wrong song, or how his new musical progression/direction will ultimately be received… one thing for sure is that you can futz around a little with your direction ONLY after achieving a certain high level of success – which Justin has. He can do a 180 with this new cd, possibly fail or underwhelm, and still be an industry darling… IMO these songs and this new era is a win/win for him… he will and has garnered a lot of critical kudos for this new direction, He is making inroads into the Urban and R&B markets, which should thrill him as he’s always been at heart a blue eyed undercover ‘brotha’, and now he’s getting the chance to explore that side of his music with Suit and Tie and this cd… I’m not a big fan, but I recognize a good hustle when I see it – he’s got his hustle on this era, lol…

  • CB40

    The best part is Kelly won for the ALBUM, which is just even better for her because it further validates all of the music including the songs she wrote / co-wrote. And there are SO many great songs from start to finish on there: I Forgive You, The Sun Will Rise, Why Don’t You Try, and so much more!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I have to say that I’m much more impressed with JT as an actor than a singer.

  • FinalFantasy13

    adele kind of is to kelly what taylor swift is to carrie when it comes to awards lately lol.. a pain in the neck.

    The funny thing is that Adele LOVES Kelly Clarkson. A few years ago, I went to an Adele concert (before she was super famous) and there was a rumor floating around that Kelly Clarkson was in the audience. The rumor was never really confirmed, but Adele completely spazzed out onstage, sang a few lines of one of Kelly’s songs and declared that she was a huge fan. It was cute. 

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    Nice version of this song and she’s singing it really well.  What a credit to those silly reality singing shows – Carrie and Kelly, knocking it out of the park.

    On a shallow note – hate the dress.  Way too Barbie dollish. And the graphics being flashed on it do not help.

  • http://twitter.com/RonnieDRocks Ronnie D

    Umm I think Carrie just blew Kelly away.

    I think I would’ve liked that performance better from Miranda and Dierks Bentley if Dierks weren’t shouting out some big clunkers of notes in the beginning of his part.

    If I was receiving a Grammy from Prince, I would be acting a fool all over the place.  I would be bowing to him, probably shaking, in tears.  Those folks were way too calm.

    even though I grew thoroughly sick of hearing Gotye’s song…he is really a gracious chap. Kinda cute too. Dare I say a bit of a crush?  :D

    I agree. Almost all of the twitter comments are about the graphics on her dress and none about her singing, which is a shame, because she sang so well.

  • too-cool-for-school

    It was pretty I guess, but sort of cartoon-y and didn’t match the drama of the two songs, I don’t think. And yes, then you focus more on that than her voice which was really strong, especially on Two Black Cadillacs.

  • http://twitter.com/MikhailXO MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    Instead of gimmicks…these singers should rely on their voice to bring them the recognition and attention. She rather asked for it here: the attention being detracted from her performance in favour of her silly chromatic dress.

  • iluvai

    What an awesome idea. I love the educator music award. :)

  • FinalFantasy13

     carrie sounded amazing and she is so pretty.. Poor hunter was so nervous but he’s a great singer i promise..

    The audience in studio and at home have gone nuts enough for him that I think he deserves an encore at the end of the show.

    ENCORE, ENCORE!!!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I can understand people like Taylor, Britney, Rhianna and Katy needing staging tricks to help detract attention from their vocals, but Carrie sings so well that I didn’t think that the gimmick really enhanced her performance – it just focused attention on it rather than her singing.

    Good thing about this year’s winners: Looks like no one really dominated. I like when the awards are handed out to different artists.

    Bad: “Set Fire to the Rain” might be my favorite Adele song, but after last year’s lovefest I would prefer someone else to win in that category. Also, I really dislike Mumfold & Sons and their “music”, so I can’t believe that crap won “Album of the Year”.

    I thought the show was pretty entertaining as a whole. Plenty of good and great performances with just a handful of meh ones.

    All of the peeps who won looked deserving of their awards. I only hope we see more deserving talent perform and win next year. Think it’s about time some different folks started getting attention at big music award shows. Both Idol based and non Idol based singers/groups.

    Oh, and I think I finally understand what Kelly meant when she said people who attend music shows like the Grammy Awards act like they are too cool for school. So many peeps looked either 1. Bored or 2. Like they could care less who won/gave a good performance. Not cool. I would stand for every winner and good performer if I was in the audience.

  • MollyAnnMay

    JT on stage in B&W. So he’s copying what Bruno Mars did last year?

    Oh good. I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought that. I agree he looks and sounds great. I’m not sure if the songs are retro (they probably are, I’m just not up to analyzing them) as they are just… dull. I got pretty bored pretty quickly after the initial dance sequence with the tie and the JayZ section (both of which I liked performance-wise, just not music-wise).

    I shoulda had a drinking game! Everytime the camera cuts to Taylor Swift, I should have been taking a shot. I’d be drunk by 9pm! Oddly, they never cut to her during Carrie’s awesome performance. Heh… Seriously, wtf. I did not need to see her so freaking often.

    Congrats to Carrie and Kelly! Although I would never understand how Some Nights would lose Pop Vocal Album despite being the only album in that category nominated for Album of the Year. Wouldn’t that kinda automatically be the winner? LOL.

    I really liked the show. The Grammys are a much better awards show than the AMA. It is nice to watch a music awards show and not have to see the Biebs or Taylor win anything. That is the way it should be as there as so many talented music artists out there that deserve the recognition instead of just a few that do not.

    “Oddly, they never cut to her during Carrie’s awesome performance. Heh… Seriously, wtf. I did not need to see her so freaking often.”

    After Taylor has been caught on camera looking not thrilled at a performance or someone winning an award that she’s nominated for at previous award shows, I think that producers have been “instructed” about when to put her on camera. lol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Taylor Swift opens the show with her hit song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and an Alice in Wonderland thing going on.  She ad libs a line in a British accent. Hm. BACKING TRACKS FOR THE WIN.”

    lol I’m watching the show again and I think that Taylor is pulling a Beyonce and singing along to a prerecorded track (at least at times). I thought that the line about “I’m opening the Grammy’s” was a bit obnoxious. Then, when L.L. said “What a spectacular performance by Taylor Swift, right?!”, there was a rather lukewarm response. lol Post-show, I noticed that Taylor’s performance received little praise or coverage on reports about the show.

  • mmb

    Taylor was definitely singing along to a very loud backing track that included a lot of the lead vocals. 

  • mmb

    I had a feeling that it would be a big night for Kelly!  Happy to see her win, although, honestly, her album IMO was the second weakest in the category.  But I just felt like the GRammy’s would want to honor her this year — and deservedly so — for being just an all around terrific performer with a long career
