Grammys 2014: Six Things That Sucked and Six Things That Didn't Totally Suck

Another year, another Grammy show.

This may have been the 56th run, but the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences still can't work out the kinks. It certainly wasn't the worst Grammys we've ever seen, but there was plenty to bitch about.

Some of the performances were groundbreaking, and some of them were downright snooze-worthy. As usual, the Academy tried to make up for past mistakes by shutting out deserving nominees, and it still gave too much stage time to washed-up stars who would be better remembered as they were than as they are.

Life is about balance, so we here at Crossfade broke our highlights into two simple categories. Here's what sucked and didn't totally suck about the 56th-annual Grammy Awards.

Things That Didn't Suck

Beyoncé and Jay Z
Sure, she may not have qualified for any Grammy awards this season, but Beyoncé still walked away a winner in the whole world's eyes. Her opening performance with hubby Jay Z was hot. Plus, "Drunk in Love" is a jam. We're pretty sure they're having the best sex of anyone alive right now.

Then Bey and Jay remained the most adorable thing about the Grammys all night long. They were supercute, dancing in the front row. That side-eye Jay gave Jamie Fox as he went on and on about Bey was classic. He's lucky Jay is a classy man these days; otherwise, for sure, he would've got stuck. Yes, Hollywood's greatest power couple still has no fear of competition.

Daft Punk's All-White Suits
How fresh were those new suits? We are loving the disco duds. Now we have to go get our own all-white ensemble. Clearly, white is all the rage in Paris. A special big cheers to Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo for finally winning for Album of the Year, even if we think Kendrick Lamar deserved to win more. You know the Grammys, always making up for past mistakes at the expense of newcomers. Still, the hug that the robots gave each other before climbing the stage was heart-melting.

LOL.   "Rock 'n' Roll is in a really bad way."  No, it's actually alive and well.  The only reason why people such as yourself don't know this, is because you let the mainstream media force feed you into liking the bullshit they promote.  All the Grammys is now, is a pop music award show.  Just a bunch of clowns getting rewarded for mediocrity.  If you actually knew anything about music, this dull article would not have been written. We live in an age where information is at the tip of our fingers.  Why don't you actually try searching for music other than on the radio and you'll be surprised by what you discover.  There's so much great music are there and yet people never take the effort to find it and stray away from the filth mentioned in this article.  This is one of the reasons why the term "sheeple" was created.

Whoever wrote this article is musically illiterate. "The Whole World" did not love B and JayZ, everyone I talked to and watched with laughed at it. The fact that a bunch of Robot Head electro-pop's won the most Grammys while the real musicians got to sit and watch is pathetic and show what JOKE this award has become. WORST Grammys and maybe the WORST awards show ever.

Whoever wrote this is an IDIOT and have ZERO ability to discern crap from real music. "The Whole World" did NOT love B and JayZ, in fact the folks I was sitting with during that PATHETIC self indulging performance laughed at it and thought it was a joke. What have we learned, no talent Robot Heads win the most Grammys while real musicians sit and watch. Absolute JOKE.
