But truth be told, aren’t the Grammys supposed to be about the music? When did it become about the bells and whistles? I understand great showmanship, like for instance, Madonna’s “Living For Love” performance. She is a master at great showmanship. But what about the substance of it all? What are we giving our sacred attention to? The fluff? Or the magic that touches our soul? The certain he be sais quio that moves us to tears when we see a performance or hear a song, like Annie Lennox’s performance.

So the inquiry here is – have we sold out to the hype and forgotten what is really good?
