Grammy's Tonight

Off topic: I've had the Grammys on in the background for an hour and ten minutes (I missed the first 20 minutes), and it has been the most boring show ever--I almost turned it off after Jennifer Lopez and her husband did a sticky sweet duet--until just now. They woke up with a vengeance with, of all things, a tribute to Southern rock--an Allman Brothers medley that segued into Lynyrd Skynyrd's Sweet Home Alabama. Even the crowed was on their feet cheering.If there's a re-run, don't miss it. Lynyrd Skynyrd and Gretchen Wilson on Sweet Home Alabama were especially great. Here's who they were: Gretchen Wilson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Dickey Betts, Elvin Bishop, and Keith Urban. Tim McGraw too. The only one I recognized from the old days was Dickie Betts.

Update: Green Day (American Idiot) rocks. Second best moment. And not just because they are an anti-Bush band. It's like watching the Energizer Bunny. With pyrotehnics.

Update: Crooks and Liars will have some video clips, keep checking.

Update: Melissa Etheridge steals the show with her Janis Joplin rendition - she's never been better.

Final update: The hardest part to watch is the tribute to those who died. It's just sad to look at the faces of people who brought so much pleasure through their music and realize they are no longer here.
