Grammy night live: Big losers

It's not even eight o'clock, and already the following people have lost a Grammy:

  • Natasha Bedingfield, Sherly Crow, Pink, and KT Tunstall (Best Femals Pop Vocal went to Christina Aguilera)
  • James Blunt, John Legend, Paul McCartney, and Daniel Powter (thank god, although the winner of Best Male Pop Vocal, John Mayer, isn't a hell of a lot better)
  • Death Cab for Cutie, the Fray, Keane, and the Pussycat Dolls (Best Pop Perfornance by a Duo or Group went to Black Eyed Peas for . . . "My Humps"!)
  • Goldfrapp and the Pet Shop Boys, who have lost two categories each: Best Dance Recording went, rightfully, to Mssrs. Timberlake and Timbaland for "Sexy Back", while Best Electronic/Dance Album went to Madonna's Confessions on a Dance Floor.
  • Beck, Tom Petty, and Neil Young (Dylan took all geezers with Best Solo Rock Vocal)
  • Snow Patrol, the Killers, Coldplay, the Raconteurs, U2 and Green Day (all of whom lost to the Chili Peppers, either in Rock Performance, Duo or Group or Best Rock Song)
  • Buckcherry, Nine Inch Nails, System of a Down, and Tool. Let the retching begin: Wolfmother won Best Hard Rock, continuing that category's legacy of cluelessness.
  • Lamb of God, Mastodon, Ministry, and Stone Sour. SLAYER WON A FUCKING GRAMMY. No shit they couldn't show that on TV.
  • Arctic Monkeys. Lost Twice. Once in Best Rock Istrumental, to the Flaming Lips, and once in Best Alternative Music Album, which was the first in a long nignt of Gnarls Barkley mentions. Gnarls took out Thom Yorke and the YYYs as well, and went on to trump Outkast and Prince in the Best Urban/Alternative Performance. Hey, check it out . . . Gnarls Barkley is equal-opportunity alternative!
  • Janet Jackson, Kelis, and Ne-Yo. All lost to Beyonce for Best Contemporary R&B Album.
  • Busta, Missy, Lupe Fiasco, and Mos Def . . . all lost to T.I.'s "What You Know," for Best Rap Solo Performance. No argument there. BTW, we finally just saw ATL last night. Dude.
  • Outkast (second loss), Ludacris, Nelly/Paul Wall/Ali & Gipp, and the Roots. All losers. To Chamillionaire for "Ridin." Again . . . no argument.

What the hell else is there to give away? Not much.
