Do the Grammys matter? No - and yes. On the one hand, one can live a perfectly rich and satisfying musical life without a clue about what will go on tonight. On the other hand, the ceremony and awards are a part of how we write the history of our musical culture. So, with that in mind I like to celebrate what they get right (Beck, Aphex Twin and Arctic Monkeys could all go home with a bronze gramophone) and call them on it when they get it wrong (almost everything else, at least in the sphere of rock and pop).
To that end, I will be live-tweeting the event. Come on down to twitter.com/AnEarful and join in the conversation.
Plus, there are the crazy tone-deaf musical combinations that will be gracing the stage for our edification. Now that's entertainment!
