Bullets Blog Grammy Recap

If you read our music blog, you know that Chris and I had a competition to see who could correctly predict the winners of the 11 "most important' Grammy categories (as determined by ourselves). Let's see how we did, but first let's look at some winners and losers of the night:

Adele - Absolutely cleaned up. I don't think she lost anything she was nominated for.
Whitney Houston - I never realized how talented she was or how much she was beloved by everyone.
Dubstep - Three Grammys for Skrillex!!
Katy Perry - Because she's crushing the single life and I wanted to include this picture:

The Grammys - For featuring Chris Brown more times than all of the deceased musicians.
Nicki Minaj - I was hoping she died on stage. God really should have just smited her right then and there.
The Beach Boys - There comes a time in every musician's life where they are bad. These guys are there.
Dave Grohl (lead singer of the Foo Fighters) - Come on, bro. Change isn't always bad. The new electronic styles of music may not be your thing, but shut the fuck up and let other people do their thing. Plus, the Grammys have like four categories every year that are reserved for the Foo Fighters to win. You ignorant dickhead.
