Last night was the Grammys on CBS and, since none of my favorite artists were performing, I kept watching on and off while doing homework. The show was ok and had a couple of noteworthy highlights. For me, the best performances were from Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5 & Alicia Keys. My favorite presenters were Beyoncé (obviously) and Ellen Degeneres.
There were a couple of surprises in terms of winners for awards. I was surprised Frank Ocean did not win Album of the Year. I was also surprised to see Adele still snatching in some awards after she dominated last year. The awards show this year made me anticipate the show next year since there will be more artists I like/know in attendance so I can’t wait!
The performance of the night.

I thought the song “Home” by Phillip Phillips would be appropriate for today since it’s the first official day I’m home from break. It definitely feels great having the semester behind my back and to go into the new semester. As long as it doesn’t snow this winter break, I’ll be one happy camper. But, anyway, back to the song.
Phillip Phillips is the most recent winner of American Idol and his style, from what I hear, is very similar to Mumford and Sons. I think the song is extremely catchy and the music video shows him on a tour bus riding down the rode and performing the song on his guitar. It’s not the most entertaining video but it definitely fits the song.
