I’m assuming that most of my readers found something to do last night other than watch the Grammy Awards. In the age when music sales are down, kids prefer social media to music, and streaming is bankrupting musicians, the music industry gets one shot each year at a three-hour, televised free commercial for music. And what do they do with it? They shove all the genres that millions of people love (jazz, classical, blues, bluegrass, Americana, New Age, etc.) off to an untelevised afternoon ceremony so they can fill that time with leftist virtue signaling, in-your-face offensive lyrical content and sex-drenched “songs” that mostly appeal to 15-year-olds on Tik-Tok.
The fact that a good song called “Just Like That” by Bonnie Raitt that was inspired by John Prine won Song Of The Year (Bonnie seemed as shocked as the audience that she won) should be a signal to the Grammy producers that the actual musicians doing the award voting are not happy with the direction they’ve taken, but it will be ignored.
On the plus side, if they really hate more than half of America so much that they don't want them not to watch, I can’t think of a better way to accomplish it than to start off with host Trevor Noah taking a shot at Trump, going directly to having Brandi Carlisle’s wife introduce her with their two kids just to make an irrelevant and ham-handed point that she’s in a same-sex marriage. If that didn’t get millions of remotes changing the channel, the show later went all-out Satanist with “non-binary” singer Sam Smith and trans singer Kim Petras doing a BDSM-themed production number of a “song” called “Unholy” complete with red suits, writhing bodies, flames and devil horns.
It’s as if someone said, “What is the most over-the-top stereotype of hedonistic, sacrilegious, bound-for-Hell pop stars that a mid-Western Christian might imagine? Let’s put that on stage!”
As someone who loves music and thinks music education is extremely important, let me assure you that there is still a lot of great music being made today, in all sorts of genres. And the more music education kids get, the less likely they are to mistake that garbage for good music. Unfortunately, the people producing the Grammy Awards are giving Satan a run for his money in the “Father of Lies” department when they claim that show represents “the year’s best in music.”

I'm glad I didn't watch. I do think Sam Smith captured the essence of what's wrong with so much of current culture with his mockery of the judeo/christian faith traditions with his act and song, "Unholy." If anything it demonstrated what the scriptures describe as someone given over to a reprobate mind. No thanks.

I did not watch the Grammy Awards but read the reviews, which makes me wonder who is in charge of presenting all this garbage to the American people under the guise of entertainment. The blatant disrespect of everything wholesome, combined with elevating satan as something to be celebrated is repulsive, and certainly is not what the majority of Americans want to be entertained by. I appreciate most genres of music, but the garbage they promoted does not fall under the classification of music, and does nothing but foster mental illness and bad behavior.

I think Elon got it 100% right when he tweeted about the Grammys.

Disgusting! I'll never watch again!

I agree whole-heartedly. Just channel-surfing and getting a glimpse of the Grammys was enough to make me certain it was not something I wanted to watch!

I've stopped watching these "awards" shows (Grammy, Academy Award, etc) several years ago, when they started becoming political and "woke-inspired." Not worth watching. And I hope far from the true sentiments of main-stream America.
