I didn't watch most of the Grammys, but I don't feel like I needed to. I got enough information from Twitter. Some of the trending topics about the Grammys were hilarious last night on Twitter. Everybody was weighing in--from Billboard (I don't know how I feel about these promoted trending topics--kind of feels like cheating, but I guess Twitter has to monetize like everyone else; it's all about the money) to artists (or at least the official Twitter account of artists) to home viewers. So I got my fill and the rundown on the Grammys with very little effort. While I was critiquing for my critique partners as a matter of fact.
I'm glad Adele did so well. She has a beautiful voice, and she just went through vocal chord surgery as well. Good for her picking up all those Grammys. The Beach Boys reunion was good, too. I did happen to see that part. Right before I got on Twitter and saw Billboard's 140 character critique of Maroon 5 and Foster the People's intro for the Beach Boys. I wonder who tweets for Billboard. That seems like it would be a pretty sweet job. And good job to Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters, who recorded Grammy award-winning music in Grohl's garage. Way to stay true to their musical roots. Then again, as my roommate pointed out, his garage is probably loaded down with expensive, fancy recording equipment. Still, the idea of garage band music winning a Grammy is a nice one.
It was nice to see LL Cool J hosting. I haven't seen him in a while--doing anything at all. I didn't see any tweets about him, but I'm sure they were out there. I'm kind of surprised he wasn't a trending topic, considering he was the host, but you never know about these trending topics. They can be unpredictable.
Anyway, that's my Twitter experience "watching" the Grammys. Did you watch them/read them/Tweet, Facebook, etc. about them? What did you think?
