No matter who you are, you can’t completely ignore the Grammy Awards… Of course the Lady Gaga opened the show, and never disappoints…. tonight with her sexilisous, fame-tastic, performance with legendary pop icon Elton John, singing a combination of Gaga’s, “Poker Face,” and Elton’s, “Your Song,” …. GaGa also deservingly took home two Grammy Awards including: best Dance Recording for “Poker Face,” and best Electronic Dance Album for “The Fame”!!! GaGa was also nominated for Album of the Year, but was bizarrely beaten by Baby Swift…but we’ll just ignore that…..It’s Exciting to see the world going GaGa for that Lady, with me!!!
I am excited, pleased, and a little surprised when rockers Kings of Leon won the Grammy for Record of the Year and also best Rock Song, and Rock Performance, for their new hit “Use Somebody,” album, and title track…..
