Open Comment Thread: The 2009 Grammy Awards


Because I'm on vacation, I'm writing this FROM THE PAST (ooh, spooky), and there won't be any live-blogging about Sunday's Grammy Awards broadcast from me this year. However, consider this post an open commenting thread for the show. According to, the list of performers is crazytown:

Current GRAMMY nominees Adele, Chris Brown, and Sugarland; a special performance with Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift; and a Four Tops tribute featuring Abdul "Duke" Fakir (2009 Lifetime Achievement Award honoree and original member of the Four Tops), Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx, and current nominee Ne-Yo are the next round of performers announced for the 51st Annual GRAMMY Awards. It was also announced that Estelle and Kanye West will perform together.

Kenny Chesney, Coldplay, Jennifer Hudson, Jonas Brothers, Kid Rock, Lil Wayne, Paul McCartney (with special guest drummer Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters), Katy Perry, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Radiohead, Rihanna, T.I. and Justin Timberlake, U2, Carrie Underwood, and Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, T.I. and Kanye West in a special performance of their hit single "Swagga Like Us."

This post will stay up all weekend, so feel free to chime in whenever. The show airs from 7 to 10:30 p.m. St. Louis time on CBS. I'll be watching wherever I am most likely, cause I can't miss me some Timberlake, U2 and Radiohead.
