    LOL! It's easy to confuse Robin and Alan Thicke, they look so much alike. I really like the Royals version sung by Tessanne Chin and Caroline Pennell.

    Once again to The Voice, I much prefer Ray Boudreaux's version of All of Me, he added some personality and flavor to it that is missing from John Legend's version.

    I so agree with you about Beyonce. She's never had to be overtly sexual because she has a natural sexiness. But in this age of sex sells and Miley Cyrus, she went there. Sad, but I guess a necessary evil.

    Yes, I forgot about this one. Not a fan either, but a very good performance.

    I really like the song but the throwing of her head back and forth was a little odd. Sexual visualization, but at least she isn't like Miley--trying way too hard to prove she is a sexual being.

    That was pretty classy, I thought. Macklemore continues to impress me, learning that they released that album independently is pretty awesome too. That gives some hope to musicians who can't get signed to a label/contract and still have options in this ever-changing industry. All of the kickstarter/fundraising sites will help unknown artists struggling for years to make it.

    Haha. I've heard the Boss Hogg comparison too and laughed my a$$ off.

    I liked seeing some of the older artists. I love Carol King. She's royality, IMO.

    I liked some of the new artists too.

    I skipped Beyonce and Jay-Z. I can't tolerate either of them, especially her.

    So nice to see some of the legends like Paul McCartney and Zeppelin still winning awards. Sad, but I don't think they aired Best Rock Album. Celebration by Zeppelin won it. I've heard it was announced a day earlier. Best Rock Song was announced live. That new song by Paul and David Grohl, "Give Me Some Slack" is really good, IMO. They show them recording it in the studio in the documentary Sound City now airing on VH1.

    I don't care for Madonna, so that did nothing for me.

    I like the song Royals, but was hoping to see Katy Perry's Roar win something. I like Bruno Mars too.

    She's had far too much plastic surgery. As with most, it doesn't make them look younger., just like people who can afford to have plastic surgery.

    I get that Beyoncé is a beautiful woman. I also know that she can sing. But, grinding away on a stage and lip synching set females back 50 years at least, IMO. Not classy at all. I expected better from her.
    Did enjoy other parts of the show, though.

    It's great to see a woman with confidence, but something about Beyonce just turns me off. IMO, she believes she looks and sounds better than she does. Her lifestyle seems to indicate she actually believes she is royalty. She seems to be more impressed with herself than anyone else and that is unattractive to me. She has had some great songs, but I have to put her aside when I listen to them.

    She comes across very different from me. I do think she comes across as confident, but not in a full of herself kind of way. She knows who she is and what her strengths are and that comes across. But since she pushes what she IS good at, I don't see that as being more impressed with herself than she should be. I see it just as confidence. She lives a lavish lifestyle, but she and her husband have earned it and pay for it themselves, so who cares? I also don't think they flaunt it. We know about the cars and boats and great vacations because they are spotted in places - not because they are inviting In Style in to do 14 page features on their fabulous yacht and multiple homes.

    Other people who are proud of themselves and live fabulous lifestyles don't bother me, but some do. She's one that hits me the wrong way. It's just something about her. I never got that feel from her when she was with Destiny's Child.

    I didn't watch her and JayZ perform at the Grammy's, (I saw a small clip) so I won't comment. I have heard plenty of others who thought it was very inappropriate and offensive. Sometimes things like that make you appear very desperate. I don't get a negative feel when I see provocative performances by Katy Perry, Pink, and some others.
