This is your 2014 Grammys Open Post. The Grammys begin at 8 pm on CBS, and I believe the E! red carpet begins at 6 pm (EST). It seems weird to have obsessive coverage of Grammys fashion because the overwhelming majority of Grammys fashion is crap, or just stunt-queen drama, trying to get attention. Still, we’ll give them all what they want tomorrow: attention, and plenty of it.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are scheduled to perform “Same Love” (their gay-marriage anthem) with Madonna at the Grammys. It’s not really a performance I’m looking forward to, mostly because I think “Same Love” is a great song and Madonna is going to make it all about Madonna. Still, it will be good to see Macklemore. He’s our Open Post Host! CB wants him to win Best New Artist too.
There are some other big performances to look for tonight: Jay-Z and Beyonce will be performing together, which I think means that we’ll be hearing “Drunk In Love”. Kendrick Lamar, Katy Perry, Blake Shelton, Pink, Sara Bareilles, Taylor Swift, Metallica, John Legend, Imagine Dragons, Lorde and Paul McCartney will all be performing as well. Robin Thicke will perform with Chicago (WTF?) and Pharrell Williams and Stevie Wonder will perform with Daft Punk – that’s the one I’m waiting for. I bet that’s the best combo. There’s also going to be this combo: Nine Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age, and Dave Grohl. For real. I don’t think Lady Gaga is performing though… surprised?
