You know what happens at the end of every Grammys telecast: Cue the outrage. Except, what are we going to do with our reserves of snark? Because this year, the number of clearly embarrassing or risible major winners this year was zero. About the best huff most of us veteran Grammy watchers will be able to work up is over one deserving nominee losing out to an almost-as-deserving nominee. Where’s the fun in rage-tweeting that?
If you were hoping for something in the mode of Bruno beating Kendrick in a sweep, or Adele mopping up the floor with Beyonce (which memorably embarrassed even her), what a disappointment this Grammys must have been. Still, there were some picks that came about unexpectedly or unpleasantly for at least some, if not necessarily all, of us. This is America, as Childish Gambino would say, so let’s try to find whatever divisiveness we can, shall we?
