Grammys 2018 recap

Great show, a little something for everyone. 

I really liked Kendrick Lamar performance, Elton John and Miley Cyrus were great. Not sure why Ed Sheeran won, that is bs, and I even like some of his stuff. LogicKhalid and Alessia Cara were fantastic. I thought Kesha and group did a good job. SAM SMITH was awful, but I don't care for his voice at all. I hope that Cardi B goes away soon, not a fan; that said Bruno Mars did a great job doing the 'Bruno Mars throwback jam' that is the thing at the moment. 

P!nk was ok, I usually like her performances more. Patti Lupone was fantastic. Lady Gaga was solid. Sting and Shaggy was just bleh, and I feel nice by saying that. I like that Little Big Town song, but the performance was off somehow. U2 was ok for a few frozen guys on a barge in the hudson. They looked like 4 guys wishing they were performing in LA on sunset instead. DJ Khaled seriously needs to STFU and let the singers/rappers do their thing. 

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee did a good job with a song everyone has already heard too many times, I'm glad Justin Bieber wasn't there. Childish Gambino did a good job. SZA was good, I'm not fully on board with her yet, some of her songs are 'eh' IMHO. Chris Stapleton is bad-ass. Jon Batiste & Gary Clark Jr were good, but a bit subtle for me. Unfortunately my recording glitched and I missed Brothers OsborneMaren Morris & Eric Church live. Just watched it, Brothers and Maren are great.
