I usually don't pay much attention to award shows, but my girls begged me to allow them to stay up to see The Jonas Brothers. So, here I sit, waiting for The Jonas Brothers to sing, so I can shoo them off to bed.
Actually, I'm kind of enjoying it... U2 rocked. As usual- I mean, is it even possible for them to sound bad? Unless the Edge is edgy for the wrong reasons.
Oh wait... The Jonas Bothers are on with.... STEVIE WONDER!?!?! what the...? Uh-oh, worlds are colliding, Jerry.... OK, one of Stevie's 20 kids must of put him up to this. Whoa. They got a standing ovation. (Let's pause for a moment: What does that say about the audience?)
Now, Justin Timberlake and the Reverend Al Green + Boyz2Men- that's another story! I was completely awed. And I just read on the LA Times live blog that this was an unrehearsed last-minute fill-in spot for the MIA Chris Brown who is being entertained by the LAPD. Maybe that's why it sounded so fanatstic- that it was basically unrehearsed, I mean. Yep, loved, loved, loved the Rev. Not sure about his politics, but the man sure can groove. And Justin has such a boyish impiness that I just want to pinch his cheeks.
(one minute passes as I search for Al Green images on Google)
Now, one kiddo has fallen asleep on the couch, the other is begging to see if the JosBros are going to win the best new artist. Which is on right now. Let's take a guess at who will win, shall we?
Well, my almost-12 year old has thrown herself prostrate on the floor because it was NOT the brothers, but, rather, someone I had not yet heard of... Adele. She reminds me of Alison Moyet. Oh come on, there have to be someone else out there who came to age in the 80s!
So, I guess I will pick my daughters up and drag them both off to their beds...
I hope anyone watching enjoys the rest of the show (and that Lil' Wayne keeps his pants up).
