I'm watching 'em right now...so far, the awards (like usual) have been a farce, but they've made some extremely cool nods towards funk tonight. Lifetime achievement award to the Funk Brothers, presented by BB King. Two big jazzers won awards, a surprisngly good performance by Justin Timberlake with this fantastic trumpeter. They're doing this series of awesome performances, started off by Earth Wind and Fire, seconded by the Family Man and Randolf something (played one hell of a mean lapsteel, never thought I'd see anyone do a solo on one of those!), and now P-Funk's putting on one hell of a show, Bootsy in the front with his awesome five-j pup signature bass and all. An impressive showing! Also noteworthy events were the President's Award to the Beatles, and Chick Corea performance up next!
