Same old Grammys: a mainstream prime-time TV show that aimed to satisfy everyone all of the time. That’s impossible, of course, so we’ll default to the standard post-Grammys review: They sucked.
Rather than go through all the winners (if you want to do that, go here), this is your executive summary, the facts you can use at work today to make it seem like you sat through the whole show.
Point 1: Adele cleaned up.
Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Album of the Year, etc. etc. Five in total. Beyonce who? Oh, her. The one with that album named after a fruity drink, right? Well, she wasn’t completely shut out. Adele broke one of her Grammys in half and gave it to her. Oh, and Beyonce didn’t win in the Best Rock Performance category, either. Thank Christ.
But if you’re on Team Bey, you can throw this chart in Team Adele’s face.

Point 2: Adele messed up a song, dropped an f-bomb, started again and everyone loved her for it.
Point 3: Things did not go well with the Lady Gaga/Metallica collaboration.
Gee, James. You look to be upset!

Point 4: There isn’t one.
This is all you really need to know. Seriously
