Did you catch this?

Thanks for posting this Billy, I hadn't caught it, and in fact it's the first I've seen Sean perform (I'm pretty sure).  I thought he did a really good interpretation of it, and liked the arrangement (mostly), but agreed with someone you aquoted who said they would hage liked to have seen 'Hey Jude'.

Still haven't gotten the hang of that quoting thing yet...

I'll send you more info on our PM thread. I'll get the young master Faceo in on the conversation, too. Quite a helpful young lad.

I watched the Encore presentation to see it again, and boy, is Yoko's dancing hilarious. It's like she's swimming.

Nancy was dancing pretty badly too.

My friend was telling me about this Grammy-tribute thing just last night with delighted revulsion, said it was full of loathsome people like John Mayer, whom we both despise. Good thing I didn't watch or I might've kicked my TV screen in! I've never given the Grammys any regard whatsoever, so nbd.

Guess I'm sorry if there were any really good bits I missed...

Agree with von Bontee.  The Grammys don't mean anything.  There are plenty of great records that have never won Grammys but I'm not going to say to myself "I won't listen to that because it never won a Grammy".

I thought most of them were OK.

On either side of the spectrum I have

HORRIBLE

Katy Perry's Yesterday. The changed pronouns basically ruined it for me. Singing wasn't that good anyway, and what was she wearing? It looked like a curtain.

BAD

None. Nothing was just a little on the bad side. That's good, I guess.

GOOD

Imagine Dragons' Revolution. I may be prebiased (is that a word) here considering how much I love them, but I really liked their different take on it.

Ed Sheeran's In My Life. He can really sing, I really liked this. Only thing that bothered me was his little hum solo.

John Mayer and Keith Urban's Don't Let Me Down. I don't have that much to say about it, but I love the way they went from John's rooftop performance in to this.

INCREDIBLE

Dave Grohl and Jeff Lynne's Hey Bulldog. Grohl'll show up again, but this was great. Perfectly rocking, and really, Dave Grohl is probably my second favorite single musician. He's great.

Gary Clark Jr, Joe Walsh, and Dave Grohl's While My Guitar Gently Weeps. This was incredible. Fantastic. Electrifying. This was a great teaming, and really rocked. Grohl's frontman career leads you to forget how great of a drummer he is, and it showed on this. Clark is, in my opinion, one of the greatest current guitarists. That solo was searing. This was easily the best of the tribute songs.

UNFAIR TO EVERYONE OTHER HUMAN BEING ON THE PLANET

Paul and Ringo. These guys are incredible.

No one else has the ability to make people so happy so easily, and they look like they're having so much fun. It's incredible to watch. Did you see Grohl when Ringo pointed out him and his daughter during Yellow Submarine? Pure joy.

I love them so much. This is why we're all here.

I was the oposite of you.  I loved the Katy Perry and hated the Imagine Dragons.

I actually liked both. I'm glad to see one other person enjoyed Katy Perry's performance. I was beginning to think I was hearing a different show.

I thought her performance was very tasteful and emotional, and judging from Paul's reaction I think he felt the same.

One thing that floored me about some of the criticism is that she changed the pronouns. It's funny that that would offend people, because that's exactly how I performed the song when I was a kid. It wasn't a big deal to me.

As someone said upthread, it would've been weird if she hadn't changed the 'she' to 'he'. Don't entirely get what all the fuss is about, really.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Let's be honest, there's something strange when we hear Ringo declare, "I'm talking about boys"! One of the times where they didn't make alterations to gender when covering a girl group song.

If they saw no problem changing the gender references when necessary with their covers, I see no problem with a female performer doing the same with their work.

Oh, right, I was trying to remember if it had come up here (it's come up at other forums too). I guess a lot of people are too young to remember that En Vogue also changed the pronouns in their version and that was a decent-sized hit on the R&B charts.

They're working on international air rights for the show now.

Just saw a tweet from Beatles Examiner that there will be a UK broadcast. Funny, most of my UK friends have already watched it via "other" methods :lol:
