I watch most of it, but since I am in Germany, the transmition was bad at the begining. I heard the Police, but didn't "see" them until the end of the song "Roxanne". Then, I enjoyed Shakira's performance. In general, I was happy with the Dixie Chicks wining the way they did! They deserved it big time! Of course I am exhasted, since it started at 2 am and ended at 5:15 am!!!
I'm not crazy about anything in mainstream music right now. I think the Grammy's aren't about the best musicians. It's a popularity contest. Whoever can get the most people to buy their crap through any means necessary wins.
I think the Dixie chicks rock! They are very good within their style, have shown how versatile they can be and are very talented! Besides, it was just great that they won all those Grammys after a bunch of narrow minded rednecks didn't support them just because they expressed their opinion! About Timberlake, I couldn't care less. The Chili Peppers were also interesting. And with the Police was certainly a surprise, even though I only heard them, and saw only the last few seconds until the signal was stable.
