2011 Grammy Round Up

Apart from Bey outshining Lady Gaga and Usher with her stunning natural beauty and transcendent star quality in the era defining picture above, the Grammys were a bit of bust this year. At least as far as the winners were concerned. Honey B was robbed of Grammy glory for "Halo (Live)" and Lady Gaga or Katy Perry should have snatched album of the year. At least most of the performances were good. There was an interesting mix of acts from the legendary Barbra Streisand - bow down, bitches! - to street scum like Rihanna. Everyone with an internet connection has already thrown in their two cents, so I'll keep this short and sweet.

Here are my 10 favourite things about the 2011 Grammy Awards:

10. Beyoncé deigning to bless the event with her heavenly presence.

9. The fact that Ciara somehow managed to buy an invite on eBay.

8. Justin Bieber's face when Esperanza Spalding won 'Best New Artist'.

7. The shocking realisation that Bruno Mars is kind of hot. From a distance.

6. Barbra Streisand proving that real talent is - indeed - evergreen.

5. Watching Ri-cycle make a complete idiot of herself by turning in the night's worst performance. Poor Drake.

4. Christina Aguilera snatching wigs left, right and centre.

3. The hot mess that was Katy Perry's rendition of "Not Like The Movies" - complete with sequined swing, billowing curtain and her wedding video. So tacky, self-indulgent and hideously wrong... but I loved every second of it!

2. Janelle Monae's hair.

1. Knowing that Ke$ha was probably asleep in the gutter somewhere holding a packet of Winnie Blues in one hand and a bottle of Jack in the other while all this was taking place. Next year, my precious, next year.

Poor Stinkfanny Crapalotta - despite yet another tediuous and desperate attention seeking stunt, the eyes are (unwillingly) drawn to beyawnsays (fake) baubles and thunder thighs in that pic.

I feel so held up against the wall with BTW (and usually I'd be all for that kind of thing) - it's great that dumb people will have their dumb kids ask their dumb parents what lesbians, gays and trannies are, but it's still about as car-crashtastic as Geri shouting "I just love to get fist" on Feels Like Sex (or something to that effect). Did Madonna's Vogue stop Cheryl Cole beating up a black woman? I'm just saying...

I've been putting the Utah Saints Something Good on instead, or Geri's Bag It Up if I fancy a song with a real message.

Xtina nailed it so much that the nail went straight through her throat by the sound of it - in other words I loved it.

Bey's baps are 100% real - She's no Kelly Rowland!

Yeah Gordon, I've finally processed BTW and will be commenting/ranting about it shortly.

Xtina was great. I just never realised she was so short. Midget.
