Do you really think I stay up that late on a school night?)  So here’s my Grammy playlist.  All of the songs have received nominations in some form or another.

    Awesome! Have you watched yet? Make sure not to miss foo fighters + deadmau5 perform together (it’s about 3 hours into the show)

    I stayed up late enough to see Adele (amazing!) and then watched some this morning. Loved most of the show, but hated Nicki Minaj. What WAS that? Am I showing my age? Loved, loved, LOVED Sir Paul McCartney singing Golden Slumbers, Carry That Weight, The End. I have such a crush.

    Hahaha, I actually went to bed right after Nicki, but all of my friends told me they had nightmares from her performance.. I might have to youtube it soon, but no, your age is definitely not showing – that woman is just nuts, apparently. speaking of nuts… gaga… oh my. and agreed, paul mcartney did so wonderful!!!!!

      Gaga is nuts for sure, but I do like her music. There’s a picture of her planting a wet kiss on Paul McCartney’s cheek. Poor Paul…it should have been me. I would have gone for the lips though-haha!
