8:42 Carrie Underwood wins the country award! Grrrrl power!

8:55 Mumford looks really good for his age, how many sons does he have?

9:06 That guy from that old boy band around the time of that other boy band, and Jay-Zed (how we pronounce it in Canada).

9:12 Yes, Ocean, Frank wins!

9:20 One half of Black Keys, producer of the year, Dan Auerbach. And now Black Keys for rock performance! If not them, Bruce Springsteen would have been nice, not sure he is in attendance.

9:22 Maroon 5, food break till Alicia Keys takes the stage!

9:27 Nice, Alicia Keys doing some of her own percussion!

11:02 Many great music people have passed, and Levonorgestrel Helm tribute.

11:12 Frank Ocean performs Forrest Gump. Minimal, yet emotional performance. #Grammys Stole that one from my Twitter, as hashtags are useless here!

11:30 WHAT an ending! Chuck D on the Grammys with LL Cool J, Tom Morello, Travis Barker, et. al.! Hip hop group! Boo to CBS for cutting it off and putting graphics over it, esp. With the brief MCA Adam Yauch tribute within.

That’s it folks, good night!
