Default Grammys 2012



Which performers rose above the rest at Sunday night’s Grammys? David Malitz separated the best from the worst performances, here is a selection:

The Best

Adele: Everything we could have hoped for. Well, that’s not exactly true. A second song would have been nice.

Rihanna: “We Found Love” — this song is as irresistible as it is inescapable, and Rihanna made it come to vibrant life.

Good Enough

Bruno Mars: He’s no James Brown, but it’s not for lack of effort. All those fleet-footed moves and that pompadour still didn’t move.

Alicia Keys & Bonnie Raitt: With tributes, you want tender and classy. These two personify those qualities, and their version of Etta James’s “Sunday Kind of Love” was just that.

Foo Fighters: Despite plenty of energetic head-banging, hand-clapping and Slayer T-shirt wearing from frontman Dave Grohl, this performance still felt perfunctory.

The Worst

Chris Brown: Lots of gyrating, thrusting, jumping, flipping and even more lip-synching. At least he didn’t get the standing ovation he seemed to be expecting.

Coldplay: Sometimes Coldplay gets a bad rap for being a boring band. They earned that rap tonight, though.

The awards show was a disappointment to many of the artists with ties to the D.C. area, as most lost in their respective categories. As Chris Richards reported:

How did local artists fare at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards? Lousy, unless your name was Dave Grohl.

Other artists registered with the Washington chapter of the Recording Academy, however, were completely shut out.

Local gospel singer Richard Smallwood lost Best Gospel Song for “Trust Me” to Kirk Franklin for “Hello Fear.” Christopher C. King, producer of “The Bristol Sessions, 1927-1928: The Big Bang of Country Music,” lost for Best Historical Album to a reissue of Wings’s “Band on the Run.” Violinist Jenny Oaks Baker’s “Wish Upon a Star” lost Best Pop Instrumental Album to Booker T. Jones’s “The Road From Memphis.” And J. Viewz, the Israeli-born, Brooklyn-based producer, is a Washington chapter member, and lost for Best Recording Package for his album “Rivers and Homes” to “Scenes From the Suburbs,” the deluxe edition of Arcade Fire’s 2011 Album of the Year-winning “The Suburbs.”

Coldplay blows! Chris Brown is a thug wannabe who beats women and needs his *** handed to him by s real man.

Adele is awesome! She just recently had throat surgery and there was concern that her singing voice would be ruined - she sounds great!
