    The Grammys

    It's the 48th Grammy Awards, this Wednesday, the 8th of February at 7:00 CST!!

    Sheryl Crow, Linkin Park, Paul McCartney, Jay Z, Madonna, and Kelly Clarkson are just some of the performers!

    I plan to be watching the pre-show from 3:00 pm til the bitter end. Anyone else pumped for the Grammy's???

    Hey misskitty...is there another Grammy thread somewhere other than in the MUSIC section???!!! I can't believe that with all the music talk here that there are only two people who watched the Grammy's and want to talk about it!

    I taped the show, misskitty, so I'm going to watch it this afternoon. IDOL and LOST got my "real time" viewing hours.

    I only saw the first 15 min. I thought Kelly Clarkson was SO sweet.
    I might as well work. I'm in a bad mood anyway.

    I had to study for a test and the vcr was busy with Lost and Invasion. I did catch bits and pieces. Loved that Kelly Clarkson won a grammy (or two?). I'll have to watch Entertainment Tonight, tonight (ha ha), so that I can see what everyone was wearing. I also caught Madonna's opening - she looks pretty good for 40-something but I didn't like her leotard type outfit.

    I like U2 but don't think they were better than some of the groups they beat. I think the Grammys has gotten more political over the years.

    I never heard of some of the nominees / winners but was pleasantly surprised that some of the winners are singers / groups that I like.

    Thank you ArchieComicFan for pulling the final stats! I had to miss the last part of the show because my NeoCitran kicked in.

    I guess that Kelly Clarkson was the surprise winner of the evening . Good for her. Madonna performed well but looks pretty skinny to me. I was surprised that Allison Krause et al won several. I was glad to see Nicole Kidman sitting next to Keith Urban. They made a nice couple. Glad he won one. I was also happy to see Cheryl Crowe attend under speculation that she wouldn't. It's too bad she didn't get to take a grammy home though. I thought all the performances were wonderful. Boy, Paul McCartney can still rock! I wonder what Fantasia Borino was thinking that evening as she saw Kelly win twice! That musta hurt. Whew! Maria Carey almost got shut out last night. I'm not too disappointed. I don't like it when there is a huge sweep of the awards by one person only. Especially her.

    Kanye West, of course, fared well with a few wins of his own. But what was with the black gloves? And I was glad to see John Legend win as well. I can't believe that Ludicrus has won a Grammy and yet Neil Young has never won one. That sucks big time. I was never a big Sly and the Family Stone fan so that was a bit boring for me. Boom Shaka-Lakka -Lakka Boom! U2 performed well and I was a bit surprised Bono did not get into a heavy political discussion when he had the opportunity. I like Gwen Stefani so it's too bad she didn't win anything. But the competition was tough in a couple of categories. She looks great though! LAMBaby!

    Now, what about that stooopid dress that Desperate Susan was wearing. Yikes. She needs a better stylist IMHO. Pretty woman, non-flattering dress. She was probably the worst fashion victim, but I didn't see them all. Alicia Keys and Beyonce looked amazing! The guys have it easier with tuxes.

    It was a well-run show with a great set.

    I haven't watched American Idol since the second season and found this interesting: http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/TV/0....ap/index.html

    'Idol' crushes Grammys in ratings
    Almost twice as many preferred the amateurs

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Some humbling news for the pros: By a wide margin, TV viewers prefer the amateurs.

    Nearly twice as many people watched "American Idol" than the Grammy Awards Wednesday when the two music programs went head-to-head in prime time, according to preliminary estimates by Nielsen Media Research.

    The "Idol" audience on Fox was 28.3 million while the Grammy Awards were being watched by 15.1 million people from 8 to 9 p.m. EST, Nielsen said.

    Within that hour, featured performers on "music's biggest night" included Madonna, John Legend, Coldplay and U2. The Irish rockers were the big Grammy winners, earning album of the year and song of the year for "Sometimes You Can't Make It on Your Own."

    After "Idol" went off the air, the Grammys picked up a little steam. Overall, from 8 to 11 p.m., the show averaged 17.6 million viewers. The final viewership figure for the show, which lasted until 11:30 p.m., was not immediately available, but was likely to be slightly lower than 17.6 million.

    The least-watched Grammy telecast since Nielsen began keeping records was the 17.2 million who watched in 1995. Last year's show was seen by 18.8 million people, with 26.3 million viewers in 2004.

    Former "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson won two Grammys, but didn't mention the Fox show in her tearful acceptance speeches.

    The music pros can take a little comfort in at least slowing the "American Idol" momentum. It was the first time in seven telecasts this season that "Idol" was seen by fewer than 30 million people.

    Poor Idol, they lost a couple of million viewers!

    I finally watched my tape of the Grammy's. Took me hours longer than the telecast because I had to watch Madonna, Paul, and Kanye at least a DOZEN times, each. My God, Madonna....can I have your baby? And Kanye, I kept my video tape from last year because of YOUR performance of the Jesus Walks song.

    I love the Grammy's. I like to see the Steve Tyler and Paul and Bonnie and all the people who have ROCKED the music industry for the past 40 years, still rockin' it along. And damn, they look good! Whatever they're doing, continue.

    Thanks, ArchieComicFan for posting all of the results. I didn't want to waste my time, reading the Ticker Tape scrawl they had at the bottom of the screen to see who else won.

    Can someone explain to me what the difference between "Record" and "Album" of the year is? Aren't 'records' plastic disks that aren't made any longer and housed inside of 'album's. Qboots, where are you to explain this to me!?

    I'm just guessing but maybe "record" is a stand-out single from an album and "album" is for the entire album?
