We're still talking about the Grammys here today: strong start by U2 -- the album will be huge. Loved Coldplay, loved McCartney, and how lucky is Dave Grohl? I love Adele but she needs to lose the gum. Loved the USC Trojans with Radiohead (anyone remember "Tusk"?). Loved the Rap Pack despite some obvious tension on stage. M.I.A. looked a bit like she was about to pollinate a flower. You've got to give her credit for working so hard -- an Amy Poehler-like appearance about as late in a pregnancy as you can get. It has to be some sort of Grammy record. Allison Kraus and Robert Plant (a superb recording) certainly shocked a lot of people. So did Katy Perry riding in on a banana. Guess we now know where Chris Brown was. Still deciding what to think about Kanye's new hair -- Whitney's appearance was a heart-stopping moment. Overall, compared to years past, I thought it was a good live broadcast, and it's now clear that a British invasion was underway last night.
Now to the hard part: tonight's broadcast has the President on the road, high tension in Washington (where we'll be on the air with his press conference tonight) A-Rod in the news (for an awful reason) and Sully and crew interviewed in our studio. It's a lot on a busy Monday night and I hope you can join us.
