#TrendyTuesday: The Grammy 2016

Who didn’t watch the Grammy’s last night? Okay okay…so it’s pretty bold of me to make the assumption that everyone watched. BUT…I think everyone probably at least turned to CBS once throughout the night.

Honestly, it had it’s highs and lows. Taylor Swift’s surprise face when everyone was excepting their awards: low. I’m sorry. Ugh, I just not a fan of TSwift. (My niece and I have a running joke on how one day she’s going to be grounded for listening to TSwift. I really do want to ground her though.)

But in case you missed it, here are my favorite looks for the night: (I didn’t take any of these pics. They were scooped up from Google. Will credit if I know the photog or magazine.)

I’m really  upset at the Grammy’s. (and I’m sure people that looked at my rants on Twitter and Facebook already know this)  but where did the R&B category go? I know the telecast is only so long, but maybe we could deal with less Target and Intel commercials and more music categories. R&B wasn’t the only thing missing…Jazz, Christian, Contemporary erased. Awards given at a secret time and location. Tisk tisk. There are really talented artist, musicians and genres that aren’t being heard. Instead we have to see the same four or five people get the same awards every year. Ugh.

Best performances of the night:

Alabama Shakes: “Don’t Wanna Fight” – I’ma Shakes fan. Thunderbitch hear me roar. I love Brittany’s gritty vocals and happy when they won last night for Best Rock Song. AS is underrated.

Kendrick Lamar: Montage of “To Pimp a Butterfly” – I wish Hip Hop would come back to the day of social and political messages. I hope and pray that day is finally here. The lyrics…the message…the symbolism…unapologetic…fist in the air. And don’t…just don’t come at me with craziness.

What were your favs of the night?
