And the winner is...

I love music.

I am at home having a blast watching the Grammys tonight.

Jennifer Hudson's performance was amazing, emotional, and very moving. With everything that she has gone through recently, I don't know how she can be on stage singing at the Grammys. She did so great.

I am not a fan of the Jonas Brothers (cuz, c'mon now, I'm 24, not 14...), but the Jonas Brothers with Stevie Wonder?! Are you kidding me? I bet they don't even know how privileged they are to be able to say they performed with Stevie Wonder.

And Al Green with my two boyfriends, Keith Urban and Justin Timberlake, singing "Let's Stay Together." Great performance!! Loved it!!!

Also not a huge fan of rap... I'll listen to the occasional "top 40" hit on 107.5 (for those of you that don't live around here, it's very much a hit music radio station that will kill a good song by running it in the ground and plays waaaaay too many commercials). I said all that to say, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Kanye, and (insert 4th artist here, as I have forgotten already). That's why I love the Grammys. Great performers and great performances. Great entertainers. The only thing missing from tonight's show is Beyonce's "Single Ladies" (performed with Justin Timberlake, that is--- may I direct you here ---> Freaking hilarious)

On a gloomier note, the Pro Bowl was on today, and I had no motivation to watch the last football game of the season. Why, you ask? I have no idea. I guess because it didn't really mean anything. And even though my boy (Steve Smith, duh) was playing, I still couldn't bring myself to leave it on the channel... I kept changing it. I guess since the Super Bowl is over, and that's kind of the last hoo-rah, I already felt like it was over. Well, it is officially over now until August (which, by the way, is also my birthday, so I have a lot to look forward to in that month!) :)

So dear summertime,
Please, hurry. Stop teasing me with pretty weather days like today. I know it won't stay, and it makes wish you were here now. Fortunetely, though, I didn't have to work today (due to overstaffing, which, with that AND the weather, my day was totally thrown off-- since when are we overstaffed??), and I did get to enjoy your tease of a warm day today. So thank you for that. But, I would like some steady warm weather. I would like to pull out my cute lil tees and tanks. I would like to get a tan. So, please hurry, summertime.


Ok, what else? OH YEA!!! I have been stalking the Keith Urban website for tour information for probably about a month, because I know it's gotta be coming... he does a tour every year. And I always go. It's FREAKING amazing, whether or not you like country music, it's an AMAZING concert! I highly recommend going. Just don't get better tickets than me or I'll be bitter. So when I don't see any info released yet, I just keep checking. Today, it paid off!!! His tour is kicking off this summer (yet another reason for summertime to hurry and get here...), and BONUS! He has a new album dropping soon, as well! And bonus #2, I saw him on the Grammys tonight (granted, Nicole Kidman was there, too... eww, I hate her... haha).

Last great thing about the Grammys:
Adele won Best New Artist. And I heart her. She's spectacular. I'm obsessed with her album, and I'm happy she won. She also performed her song "Chasing Pavements" after one of my favorite groups Sugarland performed "Stay". What an amazing night in music.

Least favorite thing about the Grammys:
The segment that they show all the people that have died in the last year. Yea yea yea, I realize it's like a tribute to them, and not to make me depressed, but for real, it's depressing. I get enough of that on my job. Like the patient that we worked our asses off for for months and months, and he transferred out and was doing so well, and I just found out that he died. He has a kid. I'm still tore up over that. I can't seem to shake it. I still can't believe it.

I just love music, have I mentioned that? It's like, my life. That's it. I'm auditioning for American Idol next year. I've decided. If anyone would like to donate any money for say, gas, or anything, it would be appreciated, being the closest auditions this year were in Louisville, KY, which is like, 7 hours away...

In conclusion, this blog post seems very scattered, and I usually go back and read through my posts before I actually publish it, but I'm not going to. Blame it on the Jager.
