GRAMMYS: SOLO LA PEQUEÑA SORPRESA DE KINGS OF LEONLos vetustos miembros de la Academia norteamericana de la industria musical siempre le dan la máxima importancia al Grammy que corresponde al Record of the year.

Pues, bien ni para ninguna de las tres divas que acapararon la noche. El premio más sustancial de la noche fue para ‘Use Somebody’ del grupo de Tennesee , Kings of Leon.

No es que nos guste exageradamente la canción ni que haya sido lo mejor del año a nivel de grabación, de producción, de arreglos o de calidad de la melodía, pero por lo menos es una cuña ante tanto pop barato que había este año en los Grammys.

Si patético fue el inicio, el homenaje a Michael Jackson, con la aparición de sus hijos, no dejó de ser más patético.
