"Katy Perry's 'Yesterday' was really annoying as well, she was the only act I tried hard not to mute when they came on."

"I HATED Katy Perry's version of Yesterday. I now understand what everyone meant with ''breathy''. It was super awful. Usually she kind of makes up for her lack of singing talent with her amazing looks and sense of humour, but this time she couldn't. That fringe was horrible, not to mention that curtain-thing she was wearing. Could easily have been taken from my grandma's house. Not a good thing."

I'm with you guys here. It was terrible. I've always thought that Katy Perry is a talentless menace to musical society. I know there are several who like their records, and I respect that. I just think that she perverted the song "Yesterday". I feel very shameful of this one in particular because it was the first song I really performed in public. Of course, my version wasn't good either....

Honestly though, she sounded better performing that than her own songs. I've seen clips on the internet (and unfortunately TV) of her performances, and she usually sounds pretty bad live. Which reminds me of the iHeartradio Music Festival last year, where the Fun. singer butchered 'We Are Young' but absolutely NAILED Queen's Somebody to Love. I'd imagine they practice those more or something...

This tribute was the second time I'd seen Gary Clark before, (first time on the Grammys) and I thought his guitar work was excellent (and he is a great guitar player). Hey Bulldog was definitely a highlight for me, although at the time I'd never heard it before (because we didn't own Yellow Submarine, and I honestly didn't know it existed yet - ironic considering I named myself after it on this forum less than four months later). I actually thought Maroon 5 was decent, even though I hate their own original songs. Paul and Ringo were great, but besides them and the other acts I've mentioned, I really don't remember much about this show. Eh, it was good, Beatles music always is, but evidently since I forgot more than half of the show I didn't find any more acts super memorable. I did also really like the old clips of the fabs themselves in the '60s, those were really cool.

If you're lonely (or not!), you can talk to me. .....Hey! Are you a new member on this fine forum and don't know where to go to introduce yourself?
Well, you can do it here! Dig it?

^ The main reason Katy Perry is famous is because she has a fantastic production team

Hm. Well, I can think of two more reasons, but I'm being perverted...

(I think "Firework" and "Roar" are OK poptoons, fwiw. I can't name any of her other hits. Dunno if I've heard 'em or if I'd like them.)

Hollywood Reporter interview with Ken Ehrlich regarding the Emmy nom for the special and continuing snub towards the Grammys.

Seriously, who the hell was complaining there was too much Paul and Ringo during a Beatles tribute?

Folk complain about anything. I'm still baffled by those who went to see 'The Artist' and complained there wasn't enough talking.

Hm. And to think I used to think the Emmys were a far more legitimate honour than the Grammys! (Still do)
