    Alicia Keyes was very good at hosting. Love her voice, and her smile. Quite a bit of good music on tonight, actually. One of the better Grammy shows I’ve seen in quite awhile. And though we watch it every year that was a welcome surprise.

    I have to say, none of these folks have missed a step, nothing was cliche', and it was the best Grammy's show I may have ever seen. Even the rap sounded pretty good. What's the matter with me!!!

    I found most of it un-watchable. I can't stand Divas, be them male or female.

    Too screamy for me, I turned it off.

    Years ago I took a Bluegrass Ensemble class at Old Town School of Music that was led by Greg Cahill of Special Consensus. It was a fun learning experience.

    "After the Goldrush" ? I didn't watch the the show so I'm just guessing' this is the one you're referring to. It was a big hit for Neil. I'm surprised more people on this forum didn't recognize it! :confused:

    Very cool! I sat in with Whitewater Bluegrass Band one time. They were hired to play my cousin's wedding in North Carolina. The band asked me...insisted really (on behalf of the bride)...that I play and sing a few with them. Anyway, after talking with the band later on a break, I come to find out that their banjo player had won the Best Bluegrass Album Grammy (with a different band...Kentucky Thunder) several years earlier!!!

    And...for first time EVER I owned a copy of the Album of the Year before it was announced!

    A trend-setter I am

    But the original was “look at Mother Nature on the run, in the nineteen seventies”, not “the 21st century”.
    Also, did anyone catch the other lyric change they did in the song?

    This is all very heartening - which is a refreshing break from the world around us.

    Except for @Nickadermis . Hope you feel better soon:) You are a brave man.

    That set that Alicia Keys did of songs that she wished she had written was pretty good. Nice
    of her to acknowledge her first piano teacher too.
