Suga & Steez: The 2010 Grammys Award Show

Although I had a great time twittering with my followers on my Twitter Sunday night, overall, the Grammy’s were terribly boring. I had more fun with the AMAs a couple months back. But there were some noticeable highlights on the show.

The Michael Jackson Tribute where Carrie Underwood, Celine Dion, Usher and others sang trubute to the King. Usher was a bit weak on his vocals, but Carrie surprised with some impressing ones.

Beyonce wins big at the Grammys, taking home 6 trophies – the most ever won by a female artist in a single night. She preformed a Medley of, If I Were a Boy and Alanis Morisette’s You Oughta Know. I found the performance a bit bland, but Beyonce killed on the vocals, as usual.

Lady Gaga showed up like this but gave a solid performance alongside special guest, Elton John. I liked the overall theme of her show; performance-wise, she never disappoints! She should also be happy she took home two Grammys: Best Electronic Dance Album & Best Dance Recording for Poker Face.

Maxwell performed Pretty Wings at the show, later joined by Roberta Flack. Performing at the Grammys was a good look for him, but sadly, Maxwell’s vocal performances have been lacking. I’m not sure what is going on because I’ve heard him sing live in concert and he puts on a great show, but lately I have found myself being very under-impressed…Maxwell won two Grammys: Best R&B Album and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. Good for him!

Overall, the show was just not interesting. There were many predictable wins and a lot of the usual suspects (Beyonce, Jay-Z, Eminem) the Grammys are famous for endorsing. What kept me most entertained were the live tweets of my Twitter fam, who kept me in stitches. If you are not yet, please make sure you follow The ChokLit Factory on Twitter!

Last, but not least, Rihanna looked lovely at the show, and Keri cleaned up nicely, although she lost on her best New Artist category to an mostly unknown Country group, Zac Brown.

  1. Didnt catch the awards but J Hud is looking like a teenager these days. Big ups to Bey for bringing the house down, she derserved those 6 grammies I think she’s probably the hardest working woman in the industry right now.
    Oh and love Keri’s dress!!
