This past Sunday, I spent my evening watching The 55th Annual Grammys.
As a music lover and critic, I was pleased at the diversity of award winners. One musical category didn’t dominate over others, as in years past. But despite the great performances and excellent fashion (Kelly Rowland, anyone) I couldn’t help but feel like I was watching The Justin Timberlake show!
After being gone from music for six years, JT performed his new song “Suit & Tie,” from his album “The 20-20 Experience.” There were some other nefarious activities that took place at the Staples Center.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a JT fan. But this was a bit much.
Take a look at the newest installment of Bang the Table and tell me what you think. Is it fair for an artist to use music’s biggest night as a platform to promote his album?
