Wow. I really enjoyed that. Deja vu 1984. I hope they'll be on again and do Everything She Does is Magic, but I suspect they'll do Every Breath She Takes instead.

Can I turn it off now?

Absolutely fine via Comcast CBS-4 Boston. Whoever is producing the Grammy's this year is doing an amazing job mixing the sound.

Looks and sounds great...just as I would expect from this crew. These are the TOP people in television working on this show. It's basically the same crew that does it every year. Lighting Design is stunning, music mix is pretty good (though I felt the Dixie Chicks vocals were buried -- might've just been here though).

On the other hand all that fog and haze in there for the lighting effects is diffusing the picture slightly.
