To tell you the truth I don’t usually watch these kind of things. Sometimes if I happen to catch some of it, but usually I could care less. This year I was inspired to watch it and boy am I glad I did. What a powerhouse of feminine energy. Alicia Keys killed it as the host. I was so pleasantly surprised how she didn’t try to be a man, she reveled in being a woman.
I became a huge Brandi Carlisle fan that night with her performance of The Joke. She was hypnotic. I know there was some flak about J. Lo doing the Motown tribute but she was phenomenal. How a woman older than me rocks it out like that full force looking sexy as hell, sounding awesome and those moves and outfits. Amazing!!
I was surprised at the lack of white people honestly. Did I miss a memo? Dolly Parton who I’ve loved since childhood was there as was Diana Ross, both given tributes. It was such a great day for women. I wish Ariana had performed and a few of the others asked to, the Chili Peppers and Post Malone was a strange combo to me and while I like Kacey Musgraves I didn’t care for her sad performance…. but she is very pretty.
Overall I was happily impressed, very entertained and found a new artist to enjoy. All good!
