Not a big fan of awards shows, but most of this one on the ReplayTV. I was surprised by how much of it I enjoyed: - Prince and Beyonce opening. One musicians extremely talented and legendary and the other very nice to look at (you can choose which is which). - Andre's exceptance speech. - Funk tribute: Earth, Wind & Fire, George Clinton, Big Boi, Samuel L Jackson, etc - Sarah McLaughlin with Alisson Krauss - Foo Fighters with Chick Corea - Lifetime achievement acknowledgements to Sonny Rollins and Artie Shaw. - Warren Zevon tribute - Beyonce, Beyonce, Beyonce! - OutKast - Justin Timberlake w/ Arturo Sandoval (Timberlake's music was surprisingly not bad) I'm glad but not surprised that OutKast gets the acknowledgements. I generally don't care who wins, but I found it interesting that Metallica, Radiohead, Steely Dan, 50 Cent and Jay-Z were barely or not nominated (though Metallica and Radiohead when non-aired awards).
