Is Justin Responsible for Grammy Ratings?

I watched the Grammys for the first time in years last night, did you? Well, some of you must have, as the ratings were up 18 percent from last year. In part, this was due to not competing against a little show called American Idol, but there's got to be more to it. Like for starters, the fact that you had to sit through the whole show to see the My Grammy Moment performance at the very end (watch below to see what we figure was going on in the head of the contest winner). So, what do you think is responsible for the ratings spike?

Unfortunately I haven't seen the grammys yet! The show is being aired here in Ireland on Saturday night. I am looking forward to seeing all the performances.

I actually like the "duets" or collaborations. I think music is universal, and you should be able to mix genres together. after all, all music stems from one place. It was a good show, NOT because Of JT

It wasn't the best of Grammy shows, but there were some good performances. Mary J. Blige really stood out and I'm not even a fan of hers. It seemed like a little too much Justin towards the end. They've really switched it around so there are fewer awards given on camera, making way for more performances. The funky combo's work good sometimes (Melissa Ethridge with Josh Stone a couple of years on "Piece of My Heart" sticks in my mind.) But this year they didn't seem to click as well. It seemed like there was an overwheliming number of performances of old songs. The Police were a great start, but Lionel Richie and Red Hot Chile Peppers trotting out old songs got a little wearing.

i agree cupcake, someone needs to sit them down and break it to them that not everyone can sing but thats okay because then they can just enjoy the show, yay flutter-the one, the only, accept no substitutions

I LOVE awards shows, but I actually thought that the show was very lackluster this year; I didn't enjoy it. The My Grammy thing was very awkward as well. I think I liked the Grammys a lot more when there were jsut a few great peformers instead of a million of them all dueting and doing very random performances.

Justin had little to do with it. It was the Dixie Chicks, Police, Mary J Blige, and just a lil Justin. The Police reunion is the reason most people I know tuned in.

THE RED CARPET BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY BECAUSE OF the police! AND i had to sit through the boring performance of rascal flatts and such to see my RED HOT CHILI PPPERS!

The Grammy's were so BORING that I'm still mad at myself for watching. But I had loads of fun in the live chat w/o that I probably wouldn't have watched!

I don't do mainstream music. Besides, I was at the Plug Awards (Indie music awards - go Band of Horses!) the night before, so I couldn't be bothered.
