The Grammy's: So Many Awards, So Little Time

The Grammy's won't be live on CBS for another hour or so, but you can watch what's happened so far at the Grammy site here. The Red Carpet pix are up there as well. Expect a big commotion when Korea's uber-popular boy bandBTS presents. They are the first Korean group to be nominated for a Grammy and to present an award. Here's some good photos of them.

Alicia Keys is hosting. I will miss James Corden, who hosted the show the past two years.

Here is the New York Times "cheat sheet" . The Staple Center has a lot of photos here.

    is Ricky Rebel

    MAGA is having a small fashion moment at the 2019 Grammys. Singers Joy Villa and Ricky Rebel both used the red carpet to spread their pro-Trump messages

    Rebel and he was the lead singer of a group in the 90's that was like 98 Degrees. Since 2002 he's basically done nothing and I guess latched onto the MAGA train for some grift. I guess if Trump can get people to buy those stupid hats then he can get people to buy the records of a has been boy band lead singer.

    a secret group at my high school called Emanon. Nobody really knew who was in it for the most part. They had an initiation every year where they egged people and they planned a formal once a year around Christmas. I never went to anything they had until I was in college and got invited by someone who was still in high school.
