|Daft Punk Get's Lucky with Random Access Memories.|
For one, I didn't tune in, or watch the marathon telecast. What I did do, is check out some videos of the performances. The performances I felt most worthy of the new-world-order type impact this broadcasting carries with it, were all collaborations, there was Kendrick Lamar, he was live, with Imagine Dragons (they were eh), Daft Punk with Pharrel Williams, Nile Rodgers and Stevie Wonder. At the end of the ceremony, a collection of talent that included Trent Reznor, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham on guitar, rocked out. Whew.
1. Real rock n roll took the stage at the end of the night. Nothing like leaving the best for last. Trent was joined by Lindsey Buckingham, of Fleetwood Mac, Dave Grohl and Josh Homme.
(The grammy's F'd this one up. Finally an HD video.)
2. A more than cleverly inventive mash-up, as only Daft can do, featuring Nile Rodgers and Stevie Wonder no less. Despite a few little hiccups, it's super cool these visionaries came together.
3. Kendrick Lamar goes off, never mind Imagine Dragons. Kendrick's deviation from M.A.A.D. City, post the radioactive BS, is straight legit. This could, and probably should be #1.
