JEFF BECK! Everything else is gibberish

I think Taylor Swift seems like a nice girl and has some actual songwriting chops. But I was a little disturbed to watch this Album of the Year winner sing off-key for a FULL THREE MINUTES during her Stevie Nicks duet on "Rhiannon." That's hard to do. Even the clueless rejects from the audition rounds of "American Idol" get a few of the notes right.

Even though I'm not into hip hop, I loved Eminem and the other two who rapped at the end of the show.
Lady GaGa has a great voice but her outrageous dressing really turns me off. Yes, Taylor did a horrible job with Stevie Nicks. They should have chosen someone else for her to duet with. Loved Jeff Beck. Loved Bon Jovi. Thought Pink's cirque de soliel was very well done. Can't wait for the Academy Awards so that I can listen to the political views and speeches.

I think the game is up on Taylor Swift. She has no vocal range and even less musical sense. She appears to be a very well-crafted county music image. I will admit that she has written a clever song or two. She should take the money and run. Jeff Beck is the real thing.

going to go with Pink. President of TIBTC and still a beautiful young lady.

I think people will me more critical of Swift now that she has a "Album of the Year" Grammy, but has never really had any good live singing performance.

@Ilovelucy -

The "other two" are Drake and Lil' Wayne. In the studio version, Kanye West appears also. The song is "Forever".
