2010 Grammy Predictions…

31 01 2010

Warning: If you are sick of seeing Taylor Swift, Beyonce and Lady Gaga’s name…go no further, they dominate the nominees this year and will likely see alot of stage time.

But what you really want to know, are my predictions for the NIGHT. Like:

  •  There will be Jacksons. And Jackson Tributes.
  •  There will be sparkly dresses on Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood.
  • Swift will look like a deer in the headlights of fame and domination (forced humility… its better than not even trying to hold in your arrogance.)
  • The Pants on the Ground guy will make an appearance (seriously) on the red carpet, therefore, I also predict someone will use the song as an ‘in’ joke at some point during the night.
  • Lady Gaga will make a costume (or are thye just her clothes?) change in every commercial break…expect lots of spikes and spandex in varied cobinations.
  • Beyonce will bring Sasha Fierce to the stage, but will be substantially less interesting while in her seat.
  • There will be Haiti shout-outs (it shows they are a caring bunch.)
  • Only the country singers will thank God.

Enjoy the show, I will be live blogging! Tonight, CBS 8pm
