    Grammy Performers Lining Up!

    Are you going to watch the show like I plan to? I have a feeling it's going to be a hot show. *Can't wait to see PINK and LADY GAGA!

    Lady Gaga, Green Day, Pink To Perform At Grammy Awards
    Dave Matthews Band and Zac Brown Band also added to roster for January 31 show.

    The 52nd annual Grammy Awards added some heavy artillery to the roster of performers taking the stage on January 31: nominees Green Day, Lady Gaga and Pink. The trio of superstars, plus Dave Matthews Band and the Zac Brown Band, were announced on Tuesday (January 5).

    They will perform at Los Angeles' Staples Center alongside a previously announced slate that includes Beyoncé, the Black Eyed Peas, Taylor Swift, Maxwell and Lady Antebellum. More artists and presenters will be revealed soon, according to a press release from the Recording Academy.




    2010 Grammy Performers Announced
    With the addition of Gaga and DMB, all five nominees for Album of the Year - which also include Beyoncé, the Black Eyed Peas and Swift - are now slated to play live on the show.

    This year's Grammys are shaping up to be a potentially big night for the ladies, as Beyoncé leads the pack with 10 nominations for I Am ... Sasha Fierce, followed by eight nods for Swift's unstoppable Fearless album, six each for Maxwell, the Peas and Kanye West and five each for Jay-Z and Gaga.

    Upon learning of her fistful of nominations last month, Gaga took a moment to thank the people who have really made her success possible, her fans, while performing in Boston as part of her Monster Ball tour.

    "So, thank you to all of you little monsters," she told the crowd. "This year, you were nominated for five Grammy Awards. If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be where I am today, so thank you!"

    I heard Usher would be doing a tribute to Michael Jackson. I hope that is true. I couldn't think of anyone better to do a tribute to MJ (sorry Janet).

    The tribute to MJ is Usher, Celiene Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Carrie Underwood & Smokey Robinson. Should be a great moment.

    The Grammys did not float my boat this year! Not at all. And I really did not like any of the performances.

    The Grammys are a total joke. Taylor Swift winning best album? Come on. They never recognize any good music, with the exception of, sometimes, the Metal category. Nickelback nominated for a 'hard rock' grammy? Give me a break. The best part was Quentin Tarantino's hilarious introduction of the rappers.

    I rarely watch award shows, but I watched the Grammys this year. I shouldn't have wasted my time. It was really boring and a number of times felt more like the country music awards to me...

    I've never heard Taylor Swift's album, but if the song she sang with Stevie Nicks is anything to go by her winning best album is a bigger joke than I initially thought it was.
    We were quite shocked that she could win any merit award after that performance. She sounded dreadful (in our opinion).

    Here's what her label chief has to say about her live performances.

    Taylor Swift's label chief responds to Grammy criticism

    On Tuesday, we reported on rampant criticism about Taylor Swift's performance on Sunday night's 52nd Annual Grammy Awards — the same night she took home four trophies, including the top prize for Album of the Year.

    Her duet with Stevie Nicks was widely panned by publications including the Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post, bloggers and music fans on social networking sites.

    The backlash left Scott Borchetta, the head of Swift's record label Big Machine Records, riled up. He responded to music critics' reports late Monday night, but it was past our deadline. So here are his comments.

    "The biggest message is (the critics) are not getting it," Borchetta said. "Because the facts say she is the undisputed best communicator that we've got. When she says something, when she sings something, when she feels something, it affects more people than anybody else.

    "Maybe she's not the best technical singer, but she's probably the best emotional singer because everybody else who gets up there and is technically perfect, people don't seem to want more of it. … I think (the critics) are missing the whole voice of a generation that is happening right in front of them. … She's an extraordinary songwriter and her vocal performances are getting better. Everybody is not perfect on any given day. If you pick any of those artists that performed (on the Grammy Awards) I'm sure you can go online and find something where you go, 'ew.' Maybe in that moment we didn't have the best night. But in the same breath, maybe we did. And nobody is arguing with the awards.

    "The critics are missing the bigger picture. This is what always happens and is the unfortunate part of the American dream, that we build these people up to watch the critics tear them down. Well, you better have more than what you've got now if you think you're going to get in the ring and fight with us. So, get in the ring."

    That duet she sang with Stevie Nicks has been highly criticized... but I don't think it reflects her other songs. Some of her other songs like You Belong With Me or Love Story are quite popular and pretty good.
