With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“My mama told me when I was young, we are all born superstars” February 14, 2011


So on the eve of the Brit Awards let’s have a quick run down on how us Brits fared at the Grammys;

Jeff Beck – Best pop instrumental performance and best rock instrumental performance.

Paul McCartney – best solo rock vocal performance for his live album Good Evening New York City.

Beatles Box Set – Best historical album.

La Roux – Best electronic/dance album.

Iron Maiden – Best metal performance.

Sade – Best R&B performance by a duo or group with vocals.

Muse – Best rock album (The Resistance).

In addition to that lot Sir Michael Jagger gave his first ever performance at the Grammys with a brilliant cover of Solomon Burke‘s “Everybody Needs Somebody”

But as usual for these events Lady Gaga upstaged everyone. No meat dress this time but she was carried along the red carpet and onto the stage inside a giant egg. She performed her new single “Born This Way”. No Spinal Tap moment in the egg either, unlike U2 who were once stuck inside a giant lemon before they could get onto the stage!

I will, hopefully, be back tomorrow to give you my take on the 2011 Brit Awards!
