Grammys !

We don't really go a bundle on the Grammys here in the UK , its only been shown here for the last year or two - but like last year's with Cee Lo and Gwynneth, and the Aretha tribute, it certainly throws up some moments [see comments at Music label]. Adele of course has been huge here for a year or more, I have the latest CD, we like the songs - but she had not really impinged on me much - then I saw her at the Grammys where she blew us away!

How worrying for Gaga (who looked terrible here), Rihanna (half naked as usual), Kathy Perry and Nicki Minaj with that ridiculous over the top rip-off of THE EXORCIST to see their thunder stolen by a chubby English girl who just stood there and sang and looked gorgeous and she sells zillions of records! I am sure Beyonce and Madonna would have felt the same if they were in the room - they wisely stayed at home! And what planet is Diana Ross on? She comes on (still with that awful hair) and asks if everyone is having fun, totally ignoring the Whitney thing ... Adele though is something else and only 23 !
