All the focus on the history of pop music, and they have to cut the tribute to the 40th anniversary of "Sgt. Pepper" for time?
A ton will be written via the annual "Grammy's are out of touch" argument, but I don't think it's the Academy fault, per se. It's just that now there's so much out there, how do you choose what to highlight and what to honor, and how do you line it up alongside the stuff you want to bring forward from the past?
Memorable performances for me: Carrie. The Foos. Rihanna/The Time. Jerry Lee.
Memorable acceptances: Kanye and Vince.
