    Anybody else realize that the Grammys are virtually all about visual impact and dancing (or should we call it rhythmic insect infestation)?

    Audio, the basis for "Grammys" is almost a side show.

    No, I didn't watch by choice. I was in a bar and grill whose 15 large screens were focused on this crap despite no one watching. The food was good and the beer was cold though.

    Funny, but I remarked with my SO that the artists are as good as any, irrespective of era. Maybe better.

    I really don't want to go back on o when weathermen wrote the te,ps backwards on a piece of glass and some songs sounded like they were recorded on a Webcor in a basement studio treated with egg cartons and commercial carpeting.

    I won't comment on the artists because I don't listen to any of them but judging by the reviews elsewhere on this forum and on the several morning shows, both radio and TV, that I saw this morning the show itself was given the raspberry. Adele (whoever that is) was given special criticism for blowing her tribute to somebody and cursing and the Bee Gee's tribute was universally panned. One local radio host singled out a Country couple for being especially boring both on the red carpet and in the presentation of an award. She said "it appeared neither wanted to be there". Neither did I.

    As usual, the visual effects were over the top and the music was forgettable. Doesn't sound like this program was a thing of beauty.

    Last night's presentation was not the greatest Grammy show ever, but definitely not bad or even mediocre. It was too long, and too much effort went into trying to combine artists of very different flavors in duos that were apparently paeans to diversity or the universality of music or something equally intangible. But that can be pinned on the producers, not the artists.

    Adele (whoever that is) was given special criticism for blowing her tribute to somebody and cursing
    Adele will likely be remembered among the best artists of this decade and perhaps the whole era. She's one of the very few to have sales approaching 200 million records (and than in an era when sales are harder to come by). She's been Billboard's artist of the year three times. She won a clean sweep of the major awards she was up for last night.

    She missed a beat in here tribute to the great George Michael, stopped, apologized and went on to do a wonderful new arrangement of the tribute tune. The audience applauded here sincere apology and gave her a standing ovation at the end. "Rolling Stone" gave her an absolutely glowing review for that song and the opening tune to the whole event.

    and the Bee Gee's tribute was universally panned.
    Again, differences of opinion on production values, not the singers.

    One local radio host singled out a Country couple for being especially boring both on the red carpet and in the presentation of an award. She said "it appeared neither wanted to be there". Neither did I.
    Since the red carpet was mercifully short, unlike the annoying Oscars red carpet, there was not much time to form any impressions there. Sounds like the jock was just being snarky.

    As usual, the visual effects were over the top and the music was forgettable. Doesn't sound like this program was a thing of beauty.
    Almost all pop music is ephemeral. But to say that shows of the past, both in production and the quality of the artists, were better is pretty much a "you kids get off of my lawn" statement.

    Maybe there was nothing that compared with, say, Kendrick and Imagine Dragons together at the 2014 Grammy show, and Beyoncé's self-appointed "queenship" number was truly annoying but, overall, it was a delightful show and as good as any I've seen.

    I was comparing artists of old and not the award shows.

    As the artists get weaker the production gets more elaborate visuals and the music itself takes a back seat.

    Volume does not make up for lack of talent.
