Grammy's Recap

Sunday’s Grammy ceremony was seen by an estimated 19.1 million people. That’s about 2 million more viewers than last year’s show and its highest number in the past 5 years. M.I.A. performed even though she was due to give birth that day, Coldplay only won 4 of the 7 Grammys they were nominated for, Blink 182 is officially back together, and as usual the winner for album and record of the year goes to a surprising odd couple, Led Zepplen’s Robert Plant and bluegrass/country icon Allison Krauss. But the biggest talk of the night and the days following were about two people who weren’t even present for the awards show. Chris Brown and girlfriend Rihanna who were both supposed to perform separate songs that night were no-shows, due to Brown allegedly physically assaulting Rihanna after the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy party the night before the big show. Justin Timberlake, Al Green, Keith Urban and Boyz II Men stepped in to fill their spots.
