30 years ago, the Grammy Awards were actually worth watching

27

January

I watched about 20 minutes of the Grammy Awards last night, far long enough to determine that ... 1) I don't like the music Beyonce or Jay Z, and 2) Domo Arigato, robot helmets are still cool in 2014. I'd much rather spend me time going back 30 years and revisiting the Grammy Awards of 1984, when Michael Jackson was still a king and the Culture Club were the new kids on the block. And performances including stunners by M.J., Cyndi Lauper and Herbie Hancock.
