One of these things is not like the others

Okay, I get that Paul McCartney lost album of the year to U2. I really do. How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb is an extraordinary album. So okay.

And I guess I can see him losing pop male vocal to Stevie Wonder. Stevie Wonder is a legend, too, and while I'd have cast my vote differently, I can see it.

But losing best pop album to Kelly Clarkson? Something is very wrong with that.

But what really butters my muffins is how the Stones could lose best rock band to U2.

Well, let's look at it this way: the honor probably means a lot more to her than it would to him- he's the true king of pop.

I'm such a total loser that I didn't even remember the grammys were on, and missed the whole thing. When my kids are older I'll try to be cool again. Sigh.

At least U2 had a decent album, but I agree, the Stones have been far more impressive of late -- although I am a diehard 1970's Stones fan, give me Let it Bleed over Steel Wheels or whatever anytime.

But Kelly Clarkson? Who the hell is that????

I guess I am OLD.

My students could tell us why she won! But I am the clearly the teacher-mom to them these days.

Yeah, but that Kelly Clarkson single is really catchy! Definitely the single of the year in my opinion.

Meh, the Grammys(TM) mean nothing. Artistry has nothing to do with it---the awards should say "Most Units Shipped 2005". And did'ya catch the Linkin Park/Jayzee/Sir Paul trio doing "Yesterday"? Was that necessary?

Susan, as Simon Cowell would say "if I'm being totally honest," I actually have Kelly Clarkson's single (Since U Been Gone) on my ipod. So I don't think she's horrible. But winning over Paul McCartney? It's just too much for me to handle. :)

And I actually loved the Jay-Z, Linkin' Park, Paul McCartney mash-up. I must be spending too much time with college students...
