Randy Newman is the Sheryl Crow of the Oscars.
If he writes a song that appears in a film, particularly an animated film..you can bet your bippy that it's gonna be nominated...17 noms, baby (15 before a win for âIf I Didnât Have Youâ from Monsters Inc. in 2K1).
Randy postponed his Akron show due to illness but he pulled it together for Oscar.To read more or comment...
The Dixie Chicks Lovefest is official.
Good for them, it's been a rough couple years and you gotta appreciate the fact they weathered the storm, suffered the consequences and kept moving.
The song shouldn't have won.
"Crazy" was definitely a better single, and I think a more memorable song, though the personal angle of The Chicks tune is powerful.
It just didn't have the 3 yeas of baggage that The Chicks and Not Ready To Make Nice brought to the table.
It's the Red Hot Chili Peppers....Again I ask, where is the Rock?
Flea's amp gives props..well, "love" to Ornette Coleman.
He's a respectful young man.
Ludacris brought two suits.
Mary J. Blige brought two heads of hair.
Say, where is the RAWK?!
Active, classic, hard, metal.. Where are the Foo Fighters or Nickelback or OK GO or (Grammy winners) Wolfmother or The Raconteurs.
I know the Red Hot Chili Peppers are coming but they aren't nearly as interesting as they used to be and that's just one full on rock band in quite a while.
Call me naive, but I actually didn't think the Dixie Chicks would get Song of the YEAR.
Yeah, I know the whole-West-Coast-lefty-artist empowerment-the-red-states-were-mean-to-Chicks empathy thing is in effect. But you couldn't escape that damn "You're Beautiful" Song and video for the better part of the year and I figured the repetition would nail it for for the former Navel Officer.
I guess The Chicks win gives us an idea about Mary J.'s chances for Record Of The Year, eh?To read more or comment...
Ooooooooh...all that smooth, pretty R&B and Album Adult Alternative makes me want to go to my nearest STARBUCK'S (I think they just opened a new franchise up the street, in the bathroom of the STARBUCK'S franchise that's already there) order a half calf, decalf mochachino and write in my journal....
The Legend/Rae show at the Civic is going to be a good show.
Seriously, bring a date.
Just like every member of his sizeable band, all three of the contestants for the SING WITH JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE contest are brown.
I'm not hatin' and I surely like to see black musicians working in any band.
I'm just sayin'......coincidence?
The singing in the camera thing is lifted straight from the tour only the film is projected onto the big sheets that surround the stage. In concert J.T. gives "her" the finger at the end of this lil' rant and all the ladies go WAAAAAAAHHH!!!! GIVE ME THE FINGER J.T.!!

"LADIES & GENTLEMEN! WE ARE THE POLICE AND WE'RE BACK!"
So theoretically, this is the big moment we've been waiting for.
The Return of THE POLICE.
Andy, Sting and Stu!
Wow, the shirtless vest thing always says Rock N Roll.
That's a pretty groovy dub arrangement of Roxanne.
Well, that's it. Let's get ready for the tour. Will they come to Cleveland?
Let's see if Stu and Sting can set aside their clashing personalities and hefty egos and make a gargantuan mound of money.
Tony Bennett and Stevie Wonder hanging out together in the audience and they won.
POP COLLABO W/VOX - Tony Bennett and Stevie Wonder
Our first award and our Musical Hook...
I'm no fashion maven but that big poofy white dress Natalie Maines is wearing is not flattering.
But Emily Robison wielding the Telecaster in heels and a $3000 mini skirt is strangely alluring in a 1980's Robert Palmer "Simply Irrisistible" video female automaton kind of way..except more so because Robison is actually playing.
Let's hear it for Booker T & The MGs.
I really like the album Melting Pot from 1971. It's not as lean as Green Onions and the early stuff, and they stretch out a bit more.
OK, So it really begins.
R&B ALBUM - MARY J. BLIGE
This is no surprise Mary is pretty much a lock for any R&B categories she's nominated in tonight.
The questions is can the Grammys give it to her on the GENERAL FIELD Categories....ya know, the crossover.
She read her ENTIRE lists.. OK, so she won't have to do that again when she comes up later, right?
A good pop music concert at the Civic!
We've had so few pop concerts this year!
R&B crooner and John Legend & laid back AAA soulstress Corinne Bailey Rae performing live in the heart of the AK-Rowdy on Monday April 16!
