Music's Big Night
Posted 2/14/2011 12:03:00 PM

Did you watch the Grammy Awards on TV? It's the big event of the music industry. Sure there are a lot of music award shows these days, but as performer John Legend has indicated, there is nothing like receiving a Grammy. He says, it's the one award that becomes attached to an artist's name. You know, .”the Grammy winning (insert name here)”. Certainly John knows, he has won a number of them. The show itself is always a spectacle and each year you can expect a number of winners that come out of left field. The big winner last night, though, was a deserving Lady Antebellum, who won record and song of the year for “Need You Now”. Lady Gaga won a couple of Grammys , so did Michael Buble, Paul McCartney and Bruno Mars. The memorable performances for me came from Muse, Lady Gaga debuting her new song, “Born This Way”, and yes, Mick Jagger, in his first performance ever at the Grammys. This is a guy, who after all these years, can still light up a stage, a virtual “Jumpin' Jack Flash”. The show may be long, sometimes the performances are less than stellar, and it can be disappointing if your favorite performers are shut out, but I can't help it, it's been a must-see for me ever since I was a kid. I can't wait for next year!
