How fantastic was the Grammy Awards broadcast last evening? It has been many years since the show has had such an assortment of performers and performances that were appealing to a broad spectrum of music lovers. For me, Bruno Mars’ performance of Runaway was the ultimate in vocals, dance, and downright excitement. Jennifer Hudson’s powerful and emotional cover of I Will Always Love You in honor of Whitney Houston. Adele’s return to the stage following surgery on her vocal chords was breathtaking. And, LL Cool J was so impressive in his role of host with just the right mix of solemn tribute to the loss of Whitney Houston and celebration of music. Unlike so many hosts of awards shows, he facilitated what happened without needing to push himself in the spotlight all the time. I hope he returns to host again.
