This year's Grammys upgraded from "abysmal" to just "terrible"

Posted By on Mon, Feb 9, 2009 at 10:20 AM

M.I.A., pregnant and polka-dotted.

I watched the Grammys for the first time in years last night. But with a lot of lag time on TiVo for fast forwarding. As usual, old people who already have a lot of Grammys and fourth rate U2s beat interesting acts in just about every category, there were lots of cringe-inducing ensemble performances (Al Green, Justin Timberlake, Boyz II Men and Keith Urban, anyone?) and it went on interminably. Aside from Lil Wayne's obvious win in rap categories, none of the folks I was rooting for won.

But there were several really great moments. M.I.A., a day past her due date, out swaggered the world's most famous rappers (above). And, after the jump, check out Radiohead, who in a nod to all the marching band and drum ensemble love its gotten in recent years, performed with a marching band.
