LOL! Nobody watched this sh!t. Haha. I asked my FB friends if anyone was watching, and it was crickets. I do think there were some solid performances, like Brandi, H.E.R., Janelle, Dua Lipa/St. Vincent and their lesbian vibes, Diana (who was mad pitchy but she’s Diana), the Dolly trio with Miley and Maren, and Andra Day, Fantasia, and Yolanda Adams doing “Natural Woman” in tribute to Aretha.
But the pacing was bad. So bad that they had to cut speeches right when they were getting interesting (Drake, Cardi, Kacey). I have a feeling Drake will never come back, and he was by far the most famous non-legacy star in attendance tonight, for better or for worse. But he called them out for their irrelevance, which I’m sure incensed the producers.
Clip of Drake’s speech, which ends right before CBS cut to commercial:
