Now we know why Soundgarden cancelled their Sasquatch headlining date, don’t we?  We did we ever bitch and moan up in here when we saw the tour schedule of co-headliners Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden. Of course we did–how on earth could they just omit Seattle?? Turns out, they didn’t!

Yep. We sat through the entire awards show, but that ain’t no big thang. We always do, because it’s like my job or something. That sure doesn’t mean I don’t have biases or favorites, right? I wouldn’t be the opinionated human sack of gossip you’ve grown to barely tolerate love. Right? RIGHT???

Meh. Pitbull is okay, I guess.

So…here are the winners, and I don’t have too many complaints aside from Pitbull trying his hand at a hosting gig and the  Best New Artist…which clearly should have been awarded to our town’s  Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, forpitysake. YOU know it and I know it; so let’s just move along.

WHAAAA??? ME????

Overall, the shows was okay. I really was hoping for some wins for Bruno Mars, which would’ve given us a hot performance, but alas–Timberlake won those awards.  I did notice the  not-too-subtle public shaming of Robin Thicke. Hmmmmm…Not all the surprising.

Even Miley was decent; although her staging was, well–odd?

WTAF? Oh. Right. “She’s just bein’ Maaaahleee, y’all.”

One more thing: How great did Joan Jett and Dave Grohl look? LOVE THEM!

Overall, what did alla ya’ll think? Anyone with me on the Bruno Mars sitch?  Did ABC think they’d get more viewers/higher ratings with Timberlake winning performing? Just as simple questions; don’t LEAP all over me.

Wow.  What a great video to be released today.  Heart-racing-happy-smile kind of great.  We cannot turn on the news without seeing the horrors of earlier in the week, so how ’bout we just rejoice in the freedom to feel good for 7 minutes?

I give to you, Seattle’s own Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Featuring Ray Dalton) with the official video for “Can’t Hold Us.”
