Ten Reasons the Grammys Actually Didn't Suck
The Performances, Like, Almost All of Them
Jack White murdered it. Fun. had falling water. The Black Keys brought rock'n'roll to life. Rihanna refrained from smoking a joint with her vagina and did a beautiful, moving rendition of "Stay." There were tons of awesome all-star performances, like the Bob Marley tribute and the awesome cover of "The Weight." Even Taylor Swift didn't piss us off with her opening version of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." Honestly, the strangest performance was Frank Ocean, whom we adore, doing "Forest Gump." We just think he was having fun coming out to the Grammy crowd.
Frank Ocean Beats Chris Brown
Ocean still had a good night, though. He finally won his fight with Chris Brown, turning the tables and putting the beating on the singer-dancer for a change. He took the award for Best Urban Contemporary Album, and he also took home an award for his work on "No Church in the Wild" by Jay-Z and Kanye West. Personally, we think he should have taken Album of the Year, but that went to Mumford and Sons. Meh.
