The Grammys (and Oscars) seem like they've been victims of media overload. (And also, particularly in the case of the Grammys, the fact that the industry it honors now produces almost entirely garbage.) It used to be that movies, music, theatre each had one major award ceremony each year, and one could remember what happened from year to year. Does, say, Pink even remember herself whether she won a People's Choice or a VH1 award in a given year?
James Blunt's speaking voice is just about as agonizing as his singing. Fortunately I came across the interview with him while switching channels so it was easy enough to instantly escape -- otherwise, pulling my ears off my skull might have been the option of choice.
