THE FINAL SCORE…BEYONCE 6…TAYLOR 4 IN THE GREATEST GRAMMY SHOW EVER!

February 1, 2010

I could barely sleep Saturday night anticipating the 52nd annual Grammy Show on Sunday and I wasn’t disappointed! I enjoyed the live show so much I forgot I was watching an awards show!

Not only did my favorites perform their best songs better than I’ve ever seen. All of the performers, which included Beyonce, Taylor Swift, The Black Eyed Peas, Green Day, Maxwell, Roberta Flack, and Lady Antebellum seemed to be inspired by the imaginative sets, lighting, staging, special effects, and superb sound.

No wonder the usually serious Lady GaGa managed to smile at the end of her brilliant duet with Elton John. It was especially good to see Leon Russell singing and playing with the Zak Brown Band, after an operation that nearly cost him his life less than two weeks ago.

I was also proud when my old boss, the late Florence Greenberg, who owned Scepter Records, won the trustees award and I was happy for my old pal Doug Morris, the head of the Universal Music group, who was honored in a salute to Icons.

The emotional musical highlights of the evening came with an incredible version of “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” by Mary J. Blige and Andrea Bocelli, which was dedicated to Haiti, along a never before seen 3 –D tribute to the late “King of Pop”, Michael Jackson.

Beyonce might’ve taken home an historic 6 awards, and Taylor Swift 4, but the clear winners were over a billion people who were watching the Greatest Grammy Show EVER!

    Just watched the Grammy’s and I must admit it was hard to sit through all the fashion and glamour BS, but I really wanted to see who would be awarded and to see my favorite performer’s. I did’nt like the Black Eyed Peas futuristic number and kept wondering what is it that makes their song #1 in the clubs, at least thats what they are saying. Dave Mathews delivered though, so did Mary J Blige & Andre Bocelli as well as Maxwell & Roberta Flack. The real message came when the question was asked…” What if your job told you that you would no longer be paid for the work you do or paid for the things you create for use by other people? ” Thats a great analogy to explain the dilemma faced by todays up in-coming artist’s & musicians. Unlike Beyonce, Usher and the other well known acts, who are already well-paid, the new, aspiring and independent artist’s, won’t have that support from the record labels that others recieved in the past. Wyclef Jean pointed that out tonight when he said, ” there are no more record labels… its the music industry”.

    The internet & technology has put great power at our finger tips, and it must be remembered that with that power comes a greater responsibility. A balance must be discovered because, if the artists and musicians are not supported the cultural arts will seriously decline…

    Peace & Prosperity,
    Amin EL
