MIA, Radiohead, TI, Justin Timberlake at the 2009 Grammy Awards

Buzz In: What Were Your Favorite Grammy Moments?

Sunday night's Grammy Awards were so full of performances, I kept forgetting that awards were actually being handed out! My personal highlight reel? Like Pop, I loved watching a very pregnant MIA getting her swagga on with Kanye, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, and TI. Lucky TI, he's actually in two of my favorite moments of the night — his duet with Justin Timberlake's the other. I also got a kick out of watching the USC marching band backing up Thom Yorke during Radiohead's performance. And I'm still wondering this morning what all that background noise was when Robert Plant and Alison Krauss accepted their final award — it couldn't have actually been booing, right?

Your turn! What were your favorite Grammy moments?

I was fortunate enough to have attended this years awards(1st timer) and the official after's party. What surprised me most was how Normal and Pleasant many of the stars were. Of course it helps when they know that there's no cameras or reporters lurking about. Truely amazing experience.

I definitely was excited about M.I.A., including her outfit. That's typical of her style, so the outfit didn't phase me. Glad that she didn't give birth while she was performing...I was holding my breath. Now, I can't get "Paper Planes" out of my head. " I fly like paper/Get high like planes/If you catch me at the border/I got visas in my name...

MIA for sure, I love her. Oh and Al Green. Coldplay on the other hand, ugh they are just brutal on my ears.

RADIOHEAD! They just blew the roof off. The Grammys should feel honored that they and M.I.A who really didn’t need to be there, were kind enough to grace their otherwise crappy awards. Two of the best ever Grammy performances ever! Was disappointed M.I.A didn’t get to perform Paper Planes on her own. Its her song!

I loved Radiohead! As well as Al Green's performance :)! Also I thought the guitarists, John Mayer, B.B. King, Buddy Guy and Keith Urban were awesome :) Plus I thought MIA was hilarious.

I loved jennifer hudson's performance and I have so much respect for M.I.A. to perform like that on the day she was due and all of those rappers together was amazing in my opinion [i don't even like rap to begin with]. Jay-z and coldplay were an interesting combo but i liked it ultimately

I wake up too early too have watched Radiohead live, which makes me sad b/c they have been my favorite band since I was like 13 (whenever Creep first hit the airways). As for the ones I did get to see, Jennifer Hudson's performance definitely made me cry. I had actually never heard the song before and she just sung it w/ such real emotion. Overall, I thought the show was good.

I with Buzz. Loved M.I.A. (with the rappers) and Radiohead. My bf and I couldn't stop laughing watching M.I.A. dancing with her big belly in front of her... she looked like a lady bug! It was quite adorable!

i really loved MIAs performance though - regardless of what she's wearing. i think that Jay-Z coming out was perfect for that one.
