9:23 PM sweetmonimons – in a banana!
9:23 PM miVi – that’s not at all phallic
9:23 PM pollyprissypant – Loved how Kate Beckinsale covered her daughter’s ears when Craig mentioned being up for an award for Best Performance in a Sex Tape. But then kept laughing at the joke.
9:24 PM sweetmonimons – her hair looks awesome!
9:24 PM pollyprissypant – Is it just me or is her actual mic not very loud?
9:24 PM sweetmonimons – i’m surprised she’s wearing flats!
9:24 PM pollyprissypant – She and Zooey Deschanel are complete twins. I’ve never seen 2 celebrities that look so much alike.

9:26 PM qoolquest – b2m head nodding
9:26 PM pollyprissypant – I’m guessing she’s wearing flats since she has to run around a lot. She probably hasn’t perfected the stiletto bounce yet.
9:26 PM sweetmonimons – i think her dancers should’ve been the fruit of the loom characters!
9:26 PM miVi – Awww Emo Jonas is in awe of her

9:28 PM pollyprissypant – Ha! It IS Lando hair…I stand corrected.

9:32 PM pollyprissypant –

9:38 PM TheGRAMMYs – Kenny Chesney’s playing “Better As A Memory.” We’re just about halfway through the show.
9:39 PM mnfnews – RT @ burleson Would it be possible for Mike and the Mechanics to perform at the Grammys instead of Kenny Chesney? #grammys

9:41 PM pollyprissypant – And the winners are Alison Krauss and Robert Plant.
9:42 PM pollyprissypant – Alison should’ve worn a shorter dress – walking up those stairs seems to be an issue.
9:42 PM sweetmonimons – has anyone actually heard “please read this letter”? and does anyone care?
9:42 PM diplo – Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
9:42 PM sweetmonimons – how about alison krauss? maybe she wants to say something!
9:42 PM pollyprissypant – Plant is letting T. Bone Burnett talk. T Bone said one thing then gave the mic back.
9:42 PM diplo – Wutevzwe did ourz in 5 mins
9:43 PM qoolquest – rats!…
9:43 PM pollyprissypant – Alison is notoriously shy…so I’m guessing she didn’t want to.
9:43 PM pollyprissypant – I was hoping MIA would win that.
9:43 PM pollyprissypant – Love T Bone though – love his wife even more. Sam Phillips rocks my world.
9:44 PM sweetmonimons – i was hoping for MIA too…
9:44 PM TheGRAMMYs – Natalie Cole presents Record of the Year to Robert Plant and Alison Krauss for “Please Read The Letter!”
9:44 PM pollyprissypant – So Plant won’t tour with Jimmy Page but he’ll use their material and record it with someone else. Ouch.

9:57 PM pollyprissypant – And you sir, are not John Lennon. But points for trying 🙂
9:57 PM pollyprissypant – It’s so weird to see him performing and not have Linda behind him. Still can’t get used to that.
9:57 PM miVi – All tough acts to follow up on
9:58 PM pollyprissypant – Yet I don’t miss Ringo 😉
9:58 PM pollyprissypant – Dave is way more entertaining.
9:58 PM sweetmonimons – wicked!
9:59 PM pollyprissypant – I like how he played a classic and not something from his new record. You read the crowd right, Sir.
10:00 PM miVi – K, that was awesome but I was expecting a little more of a medley of classics if he wasn’t going to go with a new song
10:00 PM mnfnews – Sir Paul McCartney and … Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters? On drums, not growls. Yesssss. #grammys

10:02 PM pollyprissypant – I wonder how weird it was for Ringo to sit and watch that?
10:02 PM pollyprissypant – Or is he too busy in the audience NOT signing autographs?

10:25 PM pollyprissypant –
10:25 PM Jonathan Keebler – Probably a tool of the US Army recruiters 🙂
10:26 PM TheGRAMMYs – RT @ johncmayer: Best Pop Male Vocal!! I wanna share it with Mraz. His is a really special performance. Hands are shaking, about to play some
10:26 PM pollyprissypant – And while it’s not the same – another live version of 15 Step by Radiohead for those of you who missed the one tonight:
10:26 PM pollyprissypant –
10:27 PM stephaniecea – this has been the best grammy’s show. Radiohead was amazing. Thom Yorke…I love you
10:27 PM pollyprissypant – It’s been pointed out Thom (I think) was wearing a Radiohead t-shirt…awesome.
10:28 PM pollyprissypant – Sammy L Jackson, baby!
10:28 PM pollyprissypant – He also makes things cooler…he’s like a wackier Morgan Freeman.
10:28 PM Jonathan Keebler – Sammy’s spreading the love
10:28 PM pollyprissypant – I think he’s introducing Mraz and Mayer.
10:29 PM sweetmonimons – TI & JT!
10:29 PM pollyprissypant – Oh no…T.I. and Timberlake!
10:29 PM Jonathan Keebler – Sammy and JT are “buddies”?
10:29 PM miVi – T.I and JT
10:29 PM pollyprissypant – We’re learning about a ton of new BFFs tonight!
10:29 PM sweetmonimons – JT might be a douche, but he is crazy talented.
10:29 PM pollyprissypant – I’m going to go out on a limb and say this show has been pretty good…I haven’t hated anything so far.
10:29 PM TheGRAMMYs – JT and Ti performing “Dead and Gone” right now!
10:30 PM Jonathan Keebler – T.I’s hat looks like a baby’s bottle nipple. DON’T SHOOT ME!
10:30 PM miVi – I’m bothered when I see a crooked toque
10:30 PM pollyprissypant – I think T.I. has jumped on the knitting trend wagon…
10:30 PM qoolquest – great. i gotta hide my fan enthusaim while kid rock keeps a watchful eye on me.
10:30 PM sweetmonimons – worst performance of the night was U2
10:30 PM Jonathan Keebler – If you don’t live in Canada, you don’t know how to wear a toque
10:30 PM pollyprissypant – Totally…and I say that as a fan.
10:31 PM pollyprissypant – Although less of a fan than I used to be.
10:31 PM pollyprissypant – T.I. looks better in the Sean John Fall 2009 line.
10:31 PM qoolquest – smh@ hearing the “big wheels keep on turnin” story of the night
10:32 PM miVi – JT better be pimping the William Rast line
10:32 PM TheGRAMMYs – Oh, whoops – FYI, we aren’t going to be using @ grammyawards this year. This is the official Twitter account for all updates!
10:32 PM qoolquest – great TI. rappers take notice: no screaming makes more sense!
10:33 PM pollyprissypant – I gotta say I’m loving T.I.’s jacket though…I’m calling it urban preppy.
10:33 PM pollyprissypant – Why is JT wearing a woolen cravat? It’s LA…how cold can it be? That’s as bad as sunglasses at night.
10:33 PM Jonathan Keebler – Hot celloist alert!
10:34 PM qoolquest – moral of the story: jail makes u a better man
10:34 PM pollyprissypant – Oh…prepare to be bored. President of the Academy (Neil Portnoy) up now…and he’s jumping on the Obama train.
10:34 PM dubsak – You know what would be nice? If they used the direct mics instead of ambients for the Grammy’s. All the music sounds like crap.
10:35 PM Jonathan Keebler – OMG, he worked in “yes we can” when talking about spending their budget
10:35 PM miVi – HA! He even said “Yes we can”
10:35 PM pollyprissypant – I totally agree with this guy but the YES WE CAN has got to stop.
10:35 PM pollyprissypant – You are not Obama…stop trying, Neil.
10:36 PM Jonathan Keebler – When it comes to copyright protection, we say yes we can. ARE YOU F**KING SERIOUS?!
10:36 PM pollyprissypant – Nice! Asking Obama to create a Secretary of the Arts position. I say give it to Quincy Jones.
10:37 PM mnfnews – That Justin Timberlake/T.I. joint had a catch melody to it. Stuck in my noggin. #grammys

10:39 PM miVi – Alright, as an avid fan of all motown…. I do not hate this 🙂
10:40 PM miVi – Clearly the theme of the night is bridging the generation gap
10:40 PM TheGRAMMYs – Welcome to our Four Tops tribute! That’s Duke Fakir, Jamie Foxx, Ne-Yo and Smokey Robinson up there! We’re singing along in here.
10:41 PM pollyprissypant – Yes! I Can’t Help Myself…I love this song.
10:41 PM pollyprissypant – Isn’t that always the theme of the Grammys?
10:41 PM pollyprissypant – That was good!
10:41 PM pollyprissypant – Very high energy.
10:41 PM miVi – Dare I say Jamie Foxx and Ne-Yo did it justice. I’m impressed
10:42 PM pollyprissypant – I thought they would…they’re both pretty talented.
10:43 PM tai_smith – This Grammy so wild, Neil Diamond & Weezy might do a mash-up of Ebony & Ivory…

10:50 PM qoolquest – diamond got this place AMPED!!!!!
10:50 PM miVi – Not sure if it counts as liveblogging either
10:50 PM ExploreMusic – #Grammy note: Did you notice McCartney digging Neil Diamond?
10:50 PM pollyprissypant – Um…why doesn’t it count as liveblogging?
10:51 PM miVi – Ha! I kid 😛
10:51 PM pollyprissypant – The crowd LOVED that. Everyone and their mom was up and singing

10:54 PM pollyprissypant – And Keith Urban!
10:55 PM Jonathan Keebler – I would pay $100 to see these guys square-off at Guitar Hero
10:55 PM pollyprissypant – That totally needs to happen. Maybe throw in Pete Townshend.
10:55 PM TheGRAMMYs – John Mayer, BB King, Buddy Guy and Keith Urban are rockin’ out in tribute to Bo Diddley.
10:56 PM Jonathan Keebler – And that 14yo kid who won the Guiness Record today
10:56 PM pollyprissypant – How long is this show? Man alive.
10:56 PM miVi – Green Day? Are they still relevant?
10:56 PM pollyprissypant – They were like a year ago…so I’ll say yes.
10:56 PM sweetmonimons – green day are always relevant!
11:00 PM Jonathan Keebler – Would anyone want a deodorant that’s called “clinical strength”? How bad is your b/o that you need that?!
11:00 PM pollyprissypant – This show could be 2 hours if they cut the eternal commercial breaks in half.
11:02 PM pollyprissypant – And we’re back with Gary Sinise.
11:02 PM Jonathan Keebler – Lieut. Daaaaaaaan!
11:02 PM pollyprissypant – Introducing his new BFF…Lil Wayne!

11:03 PM sweetmonimons – lil wayne!
11:03 PM pollyprissypant – With Robin Thicke too!
11:03 PM Jonathan Keebler – It seems like they would hang out in real life
11:03 PM miVi – Wow – the Grammys is proving to be the social networking event of the season – everyone’s besties with everyone
11:03 PM pollyprissypant – I love it when people dress up to perform 😉
11:03 PM sweetmonimons – too bad it’s not alan thicke 😦
11:04 PM pollyprissypant – How awesome…Blink 182 isn’t the only group reuniting tonight…it’s the cast of GROWING PAINS!
11:04 PM sweetmonimons – mivi – it’s b/c of facebook & twitter, naturally 🙂
11:04 PM Jonathan Keebler –
11:05 PM pollyprissypant – Robin Thicke has a great voice.
11:05 PM pollyprissypant – Think he has facial hair because without it he looks like his father?

11:06 PM Jonathan Keebler –
11:06 PM miVi – Mr Alan… Thicke? (that’s for you sweetmonimons) 😉
11:07 PM Jonathan Keebler – Do they really need these dancing-in-the-rain dancers after a tribute to New Orleans?

11:09 PM sweetmonimons – GoBama!
11:09 PM miVi – Who’s this Obama people speak of?
11:09 PM Jonathan Keebler – T.Payne = “I’m ON A BOOOOAT” (SNL last night)
11:09 PM pollyprissypant – Will. I. Am. and T-Pain are up presenting…but before they get to the awards, Will congratulates Obama.

11:10 PM TheGRAMMYs – I’m taking note of all your In Memoriam suggestions.
11:10 PM miVi – Awww
11:10 PM pollyprissypant – He’s bringing his family up…
11:10 PM Jonathan Keebler – Do you think Lil Wayne’s undies helped him win?
11:10 PM TheGRAMMYs – Best Rap Album just went to Lil Wayne for Tha Carter III!
11:11 PM miVi – That is what I call a good acceptance speak
11:11 PM Jonathan Keebler – Album of the Year is up next….after the extremely long break
11:11 PM miVi – Short, sweet, to the point
11:11 PM pollyprissypant – That was a great acceptance speech. That should be a template.
11:11 PM pollyprissypant – He thanked god, New Orleans, his family and friends, and the audience.
11:12 PM sweetmonimons – and YOU
11:12 PM Jonathan Keebler – Me??? Awesome! He owes me…big time
11:12 PM miVi – Question… how many awards have we actually seen given out? (since the live show started that is)
11:13 PM miVi – He’s scribbleliving as we speak 😉
11:13 PM miVi – Also, call me a n00b but please clarify: what’s the difference between Album of the Year and Record of the Year?
11:14 PM pollyprissypant – I think we’ve seen like 5 or 6?
11:14 PM pollyprissypant – Album is for the full album…record refers to one song, I believe.
11:15 PM miVi – They don’t have a Song of the Year award? (or rather, one called that)?
11:15 PM pollyprissypant – Yes – they have that too.
11:15 PM diplo – @ qoolquest yo quest if u dont give me after partee instructions im gonna bury u in cheesesteaks
11:16 PM pollyprissypant – The Big 3 Awards: definitions broken down
11:16 PM rukuslive – No…the Grammy folks don’t listen to hiphop albums…they just give it to whoever plays most on the radio. Real tweet.
11:17 PM miVi – @pollyprissypant – Thanks 🙂 (for wikipedia-ing for me when I could’ve done it myself :P)
11:17 PM Jonathan Keebler – Has Katy Perry performed yet?
11:17 PM pollyprissypant – Ha…I’m here for you.
11:17 PM pollyprissypant – Yes…you missed while you were at the gym.
11:17 PM sweetmonimons – the blind boys of alabama make me sad 😦
11:18 PM pollyprissypant – Are they sure this isn’t Katy Perry?
11:18 PM miVi – Yes – she had costumes and giant fruit on stage and everything
11:18 PM Jonathan Keebler – Like Peanut Butter Jelly Time?
11:18 PM pollyprissypant – Zooey Deschanel is introducing Alison Krauss and Robert Plant. Performing with T Bone Burnett.
11:18 PM miVi – Seriosuly, I missed the name – is this Katy Perry or Zooey Deschanel?
11:18 PM pollyprissypant – Zooey 🙂
11:18 PM diplo – ok YALLL.. if quest sends me after party directction ill keep it goin.. everyone send @ qoolquest a message that says tell diplo where 2 go!
11:19 PM lyneka – They’re closing the show? This better be the last performance… Over the Grammy’s.
11:19 PM miVi – I wasn’t trying to do a bit there -they really do look alike
11:19 PM pollyprissypant – @Keebler – She traveled onto the stage in a GIANT banana. Make of that what you will.
11:19 PM pollyprissypant – This sounds like Buddy Holly on pot.
11:20 PM Jonathan Keebler – The wind here reminds me of the Jessica Alba wind slow-down in Sin City for some reason
11:20 PM miVi – She looks like Priscilla Presley on pot
11:20 PM TheGRAMMYs – Zooey Deschanel is introducing Robert Plant & Alison Krauss with T-Bone Burnett, performing “Rich Woman” and “Gone Gone Gone!”
11:20 PM sweetmonimons – seriously – they won awards for this?
11:20 PM pollyprissypant – I actually really like this…but shouldn’t they have something more upbeat at this point in the show…
11:21 PM jasmine_marie – is wondering how do those people in the crowd at the Grammy’s that are next to the stage get to be there. next year, choose me!
11:21 PM pollyprissypant – I think they win because of their combined talents…not necessarily the song or album itself. In grand Grammy tradition.
11:21 PM sweetmonimons – hooray for the wind machine!
11:21 PM pollyprissypant – Alison Krauss doesn’t age…it’s kind of creepy.
11:22 PM pollyprissypant – They played several of her songs on Buffy though, so I shall always love her irrationally 🙂
11:22 PM Jonathan Keebler – I have no idea who these people are
11:22 PM pollyprissypant – Please tell me you know who Robert Plant is?
11:22 PM miVi – Well that husky gent is Robert Plant
11:22 PM pollyprissypant – Green Day are up to present Album of the Year!
11:22 PM miVi – Look at the cranium on that kid!
11:23 PM pollyprissypant – Doesn’t Green Day look like they should be British?
11:23 PM pollyprissypant – Who are we thinking? Coldplay?
11:23 PM TheGRAMMYs – Green Day are about to present Album of the Year!
11:23 PM pollyprissypant – or Robert Plant and Alison Krauss?
11:23 PM pollyprissypant – Radiohead would be awesome!
11:23 PM miVi – HAHA Thom is bored
11:23 PM pollyprissypant – Go Radiohead go!
11:24 PM pollyprissypant – Boo.
11:24 PM Jonathan Keebler – WTF
11:24 PM miVi – Silence
11:24 PM pollyprissypant – The Academy gets it wrong again.
11:24 PM Jonathan Keebler – Polite applause from the audience
11:24 PM Jonathan Keebler – Do I hear booing or just a lot of talking?
11:24 PM sweetmonimons – in typical grammy’s fashion….robert plant & alison krauss….and i think they’re getting booed
11:24 PM miVi – Ok, that mic thing was funny
11:24 PM pollyprissypant – And the Grammys wonder why no one watches anymore…way to stay in the mainstream.
11:25 PM Jonathan Keebler – hahah they are getting heckled with “Coooolllldddplaaaayy”
11:25 PM pollyprissypant – I’m not saying it’s not a great album…and they are super talented, people…but I honestly think this is a bad call. Should’ve gone to Coldplay or Radiohead.
11:25 PM miVi – Bored now
11:25 PM Jonathan Keebler – Audience is silent now
11:25 PM pollyprissypant – Audience left already 😉
11:26 PM mnfnews – Allison Krauss speaks!!! #grammys
11:26 PM naimul – Lil Wayne got shafted. Robert Plant is amazing, I cannot deny, but this is the Grammy’s going with a familiar safe sound yet again.
11:26 PM danaspiegel – I have a lot of respect for Robert Plant, but there’s no way his album is better than Radiohead or Coldplay. Def disappointing. #grammy
11:26 PM pollyprissypant – And I do believe that T Bone Burnett is ALWAYS high.
11:26 PM mk_xx – so angry rn. the Grammy ppl always pull a mindfuck and give album of the year to ppl who don’t matter.
11:26 PM mnfnews – Buddy Miller gets a shout-out from Robert Plant, who is talking again. #grammys
11:27 PM miVi – Severe upset of the evening
11:27 PM miVi – Stevie Wonder closes the night
11:27 PM lovemekt – Stevie…please redeem this Grammy ending!
11:27 PM pollyprissypant – I don’t know why I’m ever suprised that the Album of the Year award is always wrong. It’s the same every year.
11:27 PM sweetmonimons – ‘night kids.
11:27 PM pollyprissypant – But that was just awkward.
11:27 PM TheGRAMMYs – Album of the Year goes to Raising Sand by Robert Plant & Alison Krauss! T Bone Burnett, prod, Mike Piersante, engineer/mixer, Gavin Lurssen.
11:28 PM pollyprissypant – Bye, monimons!
11:28 PM mnfnews – Finally, Stevie Wonder WITHOUT the Jonas Brothers. Thank you, Grammy Association Hollywood People, you righted the wrong earlier. #grammys
11:29 PM Jonathan Keebler – I think the voice-over on the ending commercials are missing. That’s an expensive mistake 😉
11:29 PM pollyprissypant – Yeah…epic tech fail at the end here.
11:29 PM pollyprissypant – Thanks for joining us and following along, everyone!
11:29 PM miVi – Definitely – on the other hand, it was trying to talk over Stevie
11:29 PM pollyprissypant – See you next year!
11:29 PM miVi – Until next time!
11:29 PM pollyprissypant – Polly OUT!
11:30 PM miVi – <mic drop>
