The 2002 Grammy Awards

The 44th Annual Grammy Awards kicked off on February 27th from Los Angeles' Staples Center. Yawn... it was even more boring than your monotone science teacher talking about molecules. U2, who normally likes to rock out, opened the show with a performance of Walk On - a slower song. U2 sounded good but they didn't exactly create a bang as the opener.

The worst thing about the Grammy Awards is that they always seem so formal and serious which equals L-A-M-E. The jokes were really strained and not so funny and the audience seemed forced to laugh. There were a couple funny remarks but in a show that dragged out three and a half hours, the ha-has were few and far between.

The night should have been called The Alicia Keys' Awards cuz the girl cleaned up big time! She won five of the six awards she was nominated for, but after a while it was like, okay... enough all ready! And what was with that green hooded outfit with the white tank top? And her eyes had so much glitter she could barely keep them open!

As far as the live tune-age goes there were only three performances worth staying awake for. *NSYNC sang a few bars of Gone before breaking into the remix version of their latest hit, Girlfriend, with Nelly. It was pretty cool and the set was full of cool cars like in the Girlfriend video.

Alicia Keys performed Fallin' and broke out into a zesty salsa version of A Woman's Worth with some pretty cool Spanish dance moves. Finally, another performance worth mentioning was India.Arie strummin' her guitar and singing her reggae beat hit, Video. The Grammy Awards was a big sleeper. If you didn't watch it, you didn't miss much and you can find out who won some of the major awards below.

1MTV and other awards shows are way more exciting than the Grammys and have categories that actually make sense. What did you guys think of the show?

1 I thought the Grammys were boring this year because most of the people I like were not there like Bow Wow, Ludacris and others. Man I thought it could have been better. It was borin' me out all the way.

    I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

    Finding Nemo, only because Finding Dory took awhile to establish itself.

    Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
