7:00 Frank Sinatra shows us what a Grammy is from the Grave.
Alicia Keys plays with Frank’s Magical Singing.
(I’ve completely gotten over the Grammys giving Alicia 54 Grammys and not giving India Arie even one. Shes grown up so nice.)
I guess we get to forgive Frank for clapping off key, being dead and all.
And that’s a pretty dress, all 105 yards of it.

Segue into the first performance of the Time in Fifteen Years.
7:20 in a move that will annoy the piss out of the 30-44 African American demographic, the Time is morphed into a backup Band for a Rihanna A&B selection.
Now it could be me, But it appears that Rihanna is wearing a large bundle of wheat.
And now for a lil piece of Jungle Love, which I believe could have been what Rihanna was conceived to.
And yes, Rihanna is taller than Morris Day, who only hid he fact that he was so short behind the fact that He hung out with Prince.
7:24 Tom Hanks honors the Band with a Lifetime Acheivement award. No songs for them.
Tom Hanks then starts discussing the Beatles, conveniently leaving out the fact that they pretty much robbed old southern Black folk.
Mrs. Ink’s friend mentions that Yoko will probably outlive all the Beatles, and any children or grandchildren they might have..

Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and John Fogherty have…a revival?
Jerry Lee Lewis belts out the one song I know of his and Little Richard tries to eclispe that Geico Commercial. I had a Girlfriend with a hairdo like Little Richard’s. Her Makeup was never that flawless though.
