Action packed Grammys Loads Up on One-Time Performances

By malcolm Published: February 8, 2009

U2 is pretty dependable aren't they?
It's a peppy, catchy single with geetar and Bono's beguiling bellow.

Holy Crap it's Whitney Houston gettin' some standing ovation love for still being alive.
Admit it, you were waiting for Whitney to do something weird, weren't you?

Congratulations, Jennifer Hudson

Al Green & Justin Timberlake ( & Boyz II Men, Keith Urban), ladies & gentlemen. He can sing this song in his sleep. I mean literally.
If you poked the right Rev. Al Green with a stick during a nap I bet he'd just start singing Let's Stay Together.
..And you'd probably dance.

Chris Martin & Jay-Z

Hey there's Carrie Underwood being spunky and wild just in case you thought Taylor Swift had cornered the country market on wild & spunky, honky-tonk hunnies...

AAAHHHH OH MY GAWD!!! IT'S THE JO-BROS AND SOME OLD BLACK DOOD!!!!

While Stevie & The Jonas Bros. run through Superstition (It's funny to here the Jo-Bros get "gritty"), how about a story.

When the Jonas Bros came to the Rock Hall to tour and present the clothes from their album cover on the stage in the museum's atrium.
There's a phalanx of little girls and their various guardians and some press from Japan and Brazil standing behind a barrier between the throng and the stage.
One of the Brazilian TV journalists is asking this cherubic face girl about 7 years old the basic questions (who's your fave, what's your fave song, etc..) and the reporter asks her:

Reporter: Are you going to scream when the come up on stage?
Little Girl: No, I'll be OK. I'll be fine.
Little Birl's Brother (standing behind her): No she won't, she always screams.
Little Girl: No I won't!

A few minutes Joe, Kevin and Nick enter the stage immediately igniting the voiceboxes of the assembled tween aged girls.

The Little Girl stands transfixed...completely silent..with a single tear dangling from her one of her big, oval brown eyes.

Little Girl's Brother: Say it......Say it!

Little Girl: I LOVE YOU JOOOOOOOOOE!!!!

That's all she said for the next 10 minutes.
Never understood that uniquely feminine phenomenon.
Closest I've ever seen it in males is at a Bruce Springsteen concert.
The Boss makes grown men with wives, kids, jobs and mortgages act like teenage girls. They stand outside after the show as close to the bus as they can get (not very) and yell out stuff like BROOOSE! and "YO! STEVE!" as they get on the bus...funny

By the way BLINK 182 IS BACK! (zzzzzzz)

Also, Katy Perry Kissed A Girl and she liked it...but not enough to learn how to sing about it.

BEST NEW ARTIST - ADELE
Good record. Lumped with the "New Amys" and there are some musical similarities, but she's not nearly as tragic or ummmm.......dirty.

Those Grammy Folks ain't fools. They hand out fewer and fewer during the telecast awards each year and load up with super-duper groupings...works for me.

I always enjoy these gathering of old blues/rock guitarists but does John Mayer always have to be there representing for the "youngsters?"
I don't hate the guy nearly as much as a lot of folks do and I can't blame him for wanting to play with Buddy Guy & B.B. King et al. but geez....
