Chicks Rule At The Grammy’S
Bookmark and Share
Reviewed on 2007-02-13
The 49th Annual Grammy Awards started off with what I thought was going to be a bang, but it wasn’t. The Police took the stage to start off the show, but didn’t impress with “Roxanne”. Luckily, the show instantly got better when the Dixie Chicks performed their controversial hit “Not Ready To Make Nice”. The Chicks stole the show by winning the Grammy for all five categories they were nominated for including: Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year. American Idol Winner Carrie Underwood took home two Grammy’s for Best New Artist and Best Female Country Vocal Performance.

A few memorable performances from the show were Justin Timberlake’s “What Goes Around Comes Around”. Timberlake sang while showing the audience that he could bang out a few chords on the piano. Who knew? Another entertaining performance was from 17 year old Chris Brown who lit up the stage with his very well synchronized choreography. I personally think they need more acts like that one.

Overall, it was a great show that ran over too long as all award shows do, compliments of the artists who like to thank everyone from their pet fish to their second cousin Earl. I am expecting next years show to be spectacular with it being the 50th anniversary of Grammy Awards. No pressure.
