Grammy Awards

It seemed to me that some of these famous singers cannot sing outside the studio, where sound effects take place. Some of them were rather pathetic. Not that i can sing, but I can hear the difference.

I paid little attention to the rappers, but loved Lady Gaga's tribute to Bowie.

Yeah, some can't sing...

We had the Grammys on last night. I'm not sure why. It's not as if we listen to the music they were celebrating. Should have watched the dog show...

Yeah, she was good.

As far as rappers, even they cannot seem to rap anymore. In the beginning of the rap there were some ok ones, now forget about, not that I ever like it.


But I was talking about that even Adele

And as a side note. They still judge all the top 100, disk this, disk that by the old standards. That needs to be changed. Never in the history people from around the world had instant access to records, songs, etc. And the kids nowadays are so spoiled they get everything instantaneously. I had to work an extra job in summer to buy a record player that I wanted, not the one my parents could afford. I'm not saying that there no good singers, etc. But it is just different.

I felt so bad for Adele. The sound went out during the first verse of her song, and you could see the WTH? look on her face, but she kept on. There were horrible sound difficulties during her whole song and it threw her off her pitch. She normally has an absolutely flawless voice and can really belt them out.

I also changed channels when the rappers were on, same with Bieber. LOL. I do enjoy watching awards shows.

So many studios now uses autotune when recording. Folks don't have to stay on pitch, the computer will adjust it to make it pitch perfect! I think that's why the newer artists don't tour.
