  2. I must say wow to Patti Lupone and her ICONIC performance of Don’t Cry For Me Argentina….. To reprise a song she did over 30 years ago and sing it like she did back then was just remarkable…… She has an amazing voice.

  4. That is not a surprise really. I didn’t think they would have won..


  5. Ed Sheeran did win all the awards he was nominated for–but that was only two. He may or may not have deserved to win, but I think that he deserved to be nominated for best song and best album, and he was not. 😦

    I didn’t see the whole show, but I was underwhelmed by most of the performances this year. I know Kesha got a lot of praise for her performance, and it was clearly emotional for her, and of course there’s the whole #MeToo moment-ness of it–but I don’t care for the song (it’s melodically very dull), and I was reminded of nothing so much of the old acting tip–if you cry, the audience doesn’t need to. I was more uncomfortable than moved.


  6. The Voice starts tonight. Goes up against the American Idol reboot in a few more weeks. One difference between the shows is that American Idol is stressing youthful contestants.



  7. Idol Girl,

    I thought Kelly did a great job, she’s pretty funny. I didn’t care for the new “block” option, wish they would have given them an extra steal or a no chair turn second chance option.

    Today’s thoughts are, I’m not going to watch idol, but I am a little/a lot wishy-washy, so that could all change in a hour or so; but as it stands now, I’m sticking with The Voice and not watching idol.
