Lady Gaga Grammys 2012

Lady Gaga Grammys 2012, Chris Brown accepts the award for best R&B album for “F.A.M.E.” at the Grammy Awards. The big award shows can usually be described this way: rare moments of inspiration interspersed among a three-hour festival of awkwardness.
The 54th Grammys were true to form. Within the first half of the program it was hard to pick which element provided the most violent cringe – the sight of Lady Gaga, head wrapped in a fishnet stocking and holding a giant sceptre, bowing solemnly during a prayer for Whitney Houston? The performance by domestic abuser Chris Brown a few minutes after the prayer for Houston, herself a victim of domestic violence? The somnambulant number by Paul McCartney, dressed as a cruise ship maitre d’?
We’re going to go with the moment when Ryan Seacrest uttered this wholly incongruous statement: “Here to kick off our celebration of The Beach Boys, please welcome Maroon 5.”
You’d think it would be enough that the Beach Boys were reuniting with Brian Wilson for the first time in two decades. Nope, this being a fancy awards show, the producers opted to cram some young folk on stage with them in the form of Maroon 5 and Foster the People. It’s a clever mashup, see? Except it wasn’t. The young fellows might have broken glass in maiming the Boys’ high notes, which led to the Boys themselves doing Good Vibrationsin a performance that was kind of charming and yet evident that the gents have several miles on the odometer. Plus, singer Mike Love was wearing a ballcap with “The Beach Boys” stenciled on it. Who does that? Was there a merchandise tent in the lobby at the Staples Center?
