I was originally turned off by the opening hourlong Aretha tribute (even though I LOVE Florence) but, after that, things took a turn for the better! Highlights included Lady Gaga, Muse, Janelle Monae, Usher (Bieber...not so much although we can't wait 'til he turns 18!), the Mumford & Sons/Avett Brothers/Bob Dylan collaboration, Katy Perry (I can't believe I just said that but she was cute), Rihanna (both times...especially w/Eminem in her hot burnt up ballgown), Dr. Dre's unexpected cameo, Mick shakin' his bony hips &, last, but MOST DEFINITELY not least, ARCADE FIRE!!! I'm SO happy AF won Album of the Year even though the average American may sadly STILL not know who they are. Eminem & Lady Antebellum can suck it!!
Only one question remains: WTF is the difference between Record of the Year & Album of the Year??
