2010 Grammy Awards + Performances

Yea, I didn’t watch the  52nd annual Grammy Awards. I used to be all into the award shows but now with the power internets I just can skip all the stuff I don’t want to see and watch the performances later. Plus the Grammy’s don’t care about Hip-Hop. But hey, I guess I gotta put up something about it. Here’s a recap of last night’s show (Drake, Eminem, Lil Wayne & Travis Barker – “Drop the World”/”Forever” up at the top).
