Anyone watch the Grammys?
I have a problem with flashing lights, and it seems most singers these days can't perform without them, so I didn't see much of the Grammys last night. I did see the "Havana" opening number, which I loved, and after that I was happy to see Michelle Obama's appearance and the rousing reception she got. Also delighted with Alicia Keys, whom I always like--and glad to see she's still doing little-to-no makeup.
I had to turn off JLo's Motown tribute (those lights again), but it seemed like she did a good job. I wanted to catch Lady Gaga's performance of "Shallow," and I did. I love her voice, but her over-the-top persona is not my thing. It's a great song but to me, at least, the costume, the crazy makeup, and the dizzying hair whips and other gyrations detracted from it. Badly.
If she had come out sans makeup and did the song as her character in "A Star is Born," I wonder how it would have been received. I would have loved it, but would anyone else?
