And the Winner Is...

Ok, so our girl Wayna and our Kokayi lost out to Chrisette Michelle at last night's Grammys, but, all in all, the journey there was worth the coverage.

Last night's show had its traditional boring moments, but the drama was abundant by the truckloads.

If you haven't heard already, Chris Brown and Rhianna were scheduled to perform, but called out last minute because Mr. Brown was up for questioning by police for a very vague eyewitness report of a woman being beaten in public. When questioned, the unnamed woman said Mr. Chris Brown was the assailant. This is all very bizarre and as I said, very vague. Yet, it resulted in both Chris Brown and his girlfriend Rhianna pulling out of the annual awards show.

In their place was Justin Timberlake, Al Green and Boys II Men, which I would have to say were probably a step up...I mean, really.

Of course, weren't we all rooting for Jennifer Hudson? Her tearful acceptance speech had to make you thankful for the people still alive in your life. This poor woman has to accept her first Grammy after a tragic murder of her mother, brother and nephew, talk about bittersweet.

And, for me, the night was really made with the performance of hip-hop allstars Jay-Z, Kanye West, TI, Lil Wayne and the very pregnant M.I.A. who was show-stopping as she bounced and danced despite her baby's due date being that very day. You go girl!
