Past Grammy Moments That Stayed In My Head

I will tune into the Grammy Awards tonight. Over the past few years they have really turned the award show more into a concert. Plus music folks are so much more interesting to look at, because they be crazy. Who can ever forget the Grace Jones and Rick James pairing way back when? That moment was a hoot.

Here are some moments that have stayed in my head over the years.

Marcos so loved this performance. We would watch Pink over and over again.

I was a huge Culture Club fan! I was home with my family watching and totally turned red when Boy George said "You know a good drag queen when you see one." As a closeted gay teen I felt exposed.

I remember feeling an emotional pain, while being soothed by their voices. I was just a kid. Wow! The emotions music can stir within a person.

It's been more than a decade since I tuned in, but I have heard that the show has improved in recent years.

My mom and I loved some Boy George back in the day...can you believe he's going to be 50 y.o soon? I loved this quote from him about what he's doing now.

"I go to lots of gigs and movies, but I'm not driven by that need to go out just for the sake of it. I'd much rather stay in and watch My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding."

My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding is so messy.

Barbra was a disappointment this year... But I don't know who to blame... Her costumer?? The Director of the show?? Her over rehearsal?? The song choice?? The opening act for her?? Dunno...
