2012 #Grammys Review and Performances #TammyTalks

As always I will be posting my review on the 2012 Grammys...my likes..my dislikes. keep in mind the following comments are MY opinion.  Check out the review and performances below. Overall I gave the Grammy's a C. Find out why after the jump.
LL Cool J hosted and did a great job. I swear that man doesn't age...Whewwww. I loved the fact that he opened with a prayer from Whitney Houston...it was so touching.
Shortly after the prayer they showed a clip of Whitney performing "I Will Always Love You" in a past Grammy show.

The show opened up with Bruce Springsteen

Bruno Mars took the stage and did a phenomenal job!!! I loved his energy, his outfit, the dancing, the music....everything!!!!

Alicia Keys took to the stage to honor Etta James

The Grammy for Best solo pop performance went to Adele...and she was well deserving. Did yall catch Bruno Mars tantrum back stage? Yeah....no comment.

Chris Brown returned to the Grammy stage with an exhilarating performance of Turn Up The Music and Beautiful People


Best Rap Performance went to Kanye West and Jay Z for Otis, hedging out Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, and Wiz Khalifa...not a big shock there.

Kelly Clarkson and Jason Aldean took the stage shortly after.

The Foo Fighters performed outside for the fans that couldn't make it inside the actual awards show

Rihanna and Cold Play team up on stage performing "We Found Love" and "Paradise"

The Grammy for Best Rock Performance went to the Foo Fighters

Beach Boys Tribute featuring Maroon 5

Paul McCartney performance

The Grammy for Best RnB album went to Chris Brown for F.A.M.E

Taylor Swift was up next

The Grammy for Song of the Year went to Adele for "Rolling In The Deep"

Katy Perry was up next

The Grammy for Best Country Song went to Lady Antebellum

Adele hit the stage to perform "Rolling In The Deep"

The Grammy for Best New Artist went to Bon Iver

The Grammy's had a visual tribute to the fallen members of the entertainment industry including a heart touching, emotional performance from Jennifer Hudson in honor of Whitney Houston.

Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, and the Foo Fighters come together for a mash up performance

Nicki Minaj was up next



The Record for Album of the Year went to Adele for "Rolling in the Deep"
The Grammy for Album of the Year went to Adele 21


Paul McCartney took the stage to close out the Grammy's with a Beatles tribute.

SIDE NOTES:

Nicki Minaj and her Red Riding Hood outfit was ummmmmmm...sigh...I dunno. I kinda dig it but I kinda dont.

I love Bruno Mars but I want him to give Anita Baker her hairstyle back and get a new one...and Im almost positive him and A Keys had the same hair stylist.

Why wasnt Kanye West at the awards? Absolutely no reason he couldnt be there...but whatever.

Rihanna's dress was hott but her hair look like a wet dog....not a fan of the blonde. PS She is a terrible singer...just my opinion though.

Jack Black was super animated as always!!

I loved the fact that Victor Cruz did his lil dance. LMAO

I really need Stevie to get rid of those dreads...he just has to...

FAME did not deserve RnB album of the year in my personal opinion but hey....

Taylor Swift performance was just terrible...I felt like I was watching a farm movie or something...I hated it!

Katy Perry's superhero outfit with that blue hair was ummmmmm

Adele sounded awesome after her surgery.

Is there any reason that Etta James, Vesta Williams, and Don Cornelius werent included in the visual for people that passed? The Grammy's dropped the ball hugely.

Diana Ross received her LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT during the pre show?! Come on Grammys!!

I think Nicki Minaj had the dopest performance of the night...mainly because it was the most entertaining. She kept my attention the entire time. The theme was kinda weird but I loved it.

The end of the Breakfast Club is near

The Breakfast Club has been on air for 9 years this month, and is going strong with ratings, engagement, and seems to be adding new markets every month...but I think the end is near.
I sound crazy right? I know you're thinking, Tammy how and why would you think that a successful morning show would have it's future in the balance? Well, there are a couple of reasons, let's go through them. I mean this could all be in my head and I’m projecting, or I could have some legitimate points and the near future will tell.
Shock jock radio value going down- The Breakfast Club has been known for it's shock jock style of radio for years. Charlemagne says the most outlandish things in interviews, creates false narratives that he doesn't even agree with for hot takes, and Envy always goes against the grain and disagrees with the masses on any given topic, just to disagree. Podcasting is huge right now, put five people in a room and at least three of them have a podcast; just at the…

15 Black women that need to host SNL

Saturday Night Live has been around for 45 years this fall and has had a series of hosts, of all ethnicities, ages, and entertainment occupations. They've had hosts that are comedians, actors, singers, rappers, and more. Now, while the diversity has been decent...I would love to see more black women as hosts. I've compiled a list of black women I think would do a damn good job at hosting the late night show. Let's get started shall we...
Tracee Ellis Ross - Tracee is a no brainer and should be at the top of everyone's list when thinking of who should host when they are doing the planning over at NBC. Tracee has perfect comedic timing, which we've seen time and time again on Girlfriends, and now on Black-ish we’ve seen her transform into Rainbow Johnson, and also into the other smaller roles they play when they have episodes within their episodes, if that makes sense. Her personality is playful and fun, which is evident through her Instagram. So, she’s topping this l…

Grown-ish is a far cry from A Different World

When it was announced that Black-ish, the hit ABC sitcom about an affluent African American family doing their best to immerse their kids in the their ethnic culture while still enjoying the fruits of their labor, would be getting a spinoff following the oldest daughter, Zoe Johnson, as she headed to college people were somewhat excited. When it was pegged to be an updated and more current version of the hit series A Different World people were more than excited and the show was highly anticipated. We were expecting to see Zoe navigate life as a college freshmen, out of the sheltered and, low key white bread, lifestyle. We were anticipating seeing her explore more of her life after highschool, then it aired…



Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Grown-ish, I think it’s entertaining, but it’s a far cry from A Different World. I didn’t expect the show that be identical to A Different World, mainly since Zoe wasn’t attending an HBCU, so there’s that, but I think the show is missing the mark on …
