Some head-scratching Grammy presenters…

Don’t get me wrong, it was a GREAT show – one of the best in many years. But I ask you, what the HELL was Scarlett Johanson, who has never had a record in her brief life, doing presenting the BEST ALBUM award with Don Henley? What an insult to all the great artists and legends who were at the Grammys last night.
i-10612b6bd4a192193297b12103f9065c-ascarlette.jpgWhy not have Joan Baez, who looked amazing and is a legend, present with Henley? That REALLY annoyed me. Apparently she is about to record an album. She asked Henley if he had any advice for her. He said: “No.” And he seemed to mean it.
Then you had the strange presence of Al Gore presenting best ROCK album with Queen Latifah. I know he was initially scheduled to present with Mellisa Etheridge who wrote the song for his “An Inconvenient Truth” flick. But there was nothing really clever said to explain the former veep’s presence.
And what about the trio who presented Best Country Album? Mandy Moore. OK, fine, she’s a singer. LeAnn Rimes. Perfect. She’s a singer AND does Country songs. so far so good. Rounding out the threesome? LUKE WILSON? What the? I like Luke Wilson, don’t get me wrong. But he has no business presenting Grammys is all I’m saying.
And good God, what the heck was DAVID SPADE doing there? I know it’s a CBS telecast. I know Spade has a new sitcom on CBS. But this man has officially started to bug me. He has to 1. Get a haircxut. 2. Get a new schtick.
In a similar gripe, two cast members from CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother” sitcom, Alyson Hannigan and Corie Smulders introduced Gnarls Barkley. I don’t get it. Were the producers sitting around thinking, “Hmmmmm. Who will introduce Gnarls Barkley? I got it! Alyson Hannigan! She’s perfect! No one else will do!”
Similarly, Christina Ricci (hugh? she doesn’t even have a CBS sitcom) and Samuel L. Jackson introducing the R&B segment featuring Smokey Robinson, Lionel Richie, Chris Brown and an out-of-this-world Christina Aguilera.
I mean, if you’re going to have actors presenting, at least have some who have recorded an album. I got one! William Shatner! Oh yeah, wrong network. His “Boston Legal” airs on ABC.
