The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards show took place night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. There were performances by Cee-Lo Green with Gwyneth Paltrow singing Fuck You, the trio B.o.B, Janelle Monae and Bruno Mars, Rihanna and Drake did their thing, it was also a comeback for Dr. Dre performing his new single I Need A Doctor with Eminem and Skylar Grey. Though we didn’t see Drake or Justin Bieber take the big awards home, Montreal’s own Arcade Fire took Album Of The Year. John Legend and The Roots also took 3 Grammys for their work on Wake Up! Jay-Z took 3 Grammys as well for Empire State Of Mind and On To The Next One. Overall the awards were ok, nothing special or great but hopefully next year will be better.
