I watched till the first commercial break and had to turn it off, threw up a little in my mouth...

I'll try again when it's over and I can fast forward through the worst of it.

Censorship is ALWAYS wrong, no matter who is doing it or how noble their motivation.

St. Vincent is cool and I was looking forward to her performance more than any others, but it was just okay. She would have done a lot better playing the song in her own style with her touring band, instead of adhering her looser style to the tight funkiness of this arrangement.

although 2014-2015 St. Vincent would have done better no matter how they played the song, period

Morris Hayes is buried somewhere in the band haven’t seen him once and the revolution stuff all has been cut from the show are U shocked ? Hopefully they will air that on the Grammy website would be nice if they did that way too much Shelia on this show way too much good performances overall can’t really say anything but to cut the revolution out of the broadcast sucks

So far it’s cool, Legend lookin’ like Grace Jones. Good for him, he didn’t go for any high notes, Vincent was dry but nice. It’s fun and as funky as a Grammy show can get lol I usually hate hard on H.E.R. but she did give me the feels and u can tell she is a superfan. It’s nice this is on public TV now during this mess as more folks and their kids will see it. It’s not very sexy.

The revolution performance is cut from the broadcast as is the Foo Fighters doing "Pop Life" hmm seems fishy, and why re-air this Usher performance with Shelia from two months ago? it aired once right there you could have put Mountains and Pop Life.

Yes it is, that is beyond a crime and I wonder why and who made that call? The same person who inserted an old Usher performance that aired already, hmmm

Are you serious? They have time to show Usher's mediocre karoake but they can't show the fucking Revolution?

oh wow I didn't know Foo Fighters performance was cut. Who made that decision? And I thought this Usher performance looked familiar. Shame.

This Manic Monday totally works for me. They made it their own - not a lame knockoff.

Miguel was good.

St. Vincent okay.

H.E.R. - maybe

John Legend, Usher, Latin Grammy dude (sorry I didn't catch his name) - ugh.

Great performances! Usher just sang a few songs. Her, John Legend were two of my favorites. Waiting to see Morris, the Time and the Revelution. 😃

I did not like Susanna Hoffs and Chris Martin. Manic Monday just doesn't work slowed down. This might seem crazy but I would have liked to see her perform it with the Foo Fighters.

Love that intimate duet version of Manic Monday. Gave me the feels. Great vocals by Susanna Hoffs and Chris Martin on the piano.
