I agree "Mama" was very well done. But I have to say, hope I don't offend anyone, but hasn't Kanye about used up his public grieving time? Yes, it was a tragedy, and yes it was totally unexpected, but perhaps private grieving would be more appropriate now.
Got to say, overall the show was flawless both in terms of video and audio -- and it came in close to one time to boot. What is this the 6th Grammys in HD? I remember the first few and production has come a long way since then. Now, if CBS could only get all their stations up and running DD 5.1 it would be great. Luckily, perhaps due to the weather(-2 here...) I got to hear the show in DD 5.1. WWJ from Detroit is a low power station that is overrun for me by a station in Grand Rapids, but it is O&O so it has the equipment. The station I normally watch from Lansing does not and the other local station from Saginaw flags their signal as DD but do not have the equipment. Problem is they don't know how to use the stuff they have. I wish CBS could come up with a bit of $$ to help and twist a few arms, of the big 4 they are the only ones who's outlets don't have DD in my area.
