Music's Biggest Night was last night, and I would officially be the most disliked person at our home office if I didn't write about it. Our home office and delivery team loves music. Sure, we all like different varieties, but all music lovers can appreciate music itself, just for being. As for me, I literally listen to it all. On Friday, I was in a Frank Ocean kind of mood. Today, my Pandora station is allowing me to enjoy the always fabulous George Winston. See, Monday is always a piano music kind of day. Friday is always a get ready for the weekend music kind of day. And the days in between usually are up to my mood. It may be oldies, spa music, rap - but you can rest assured that if you walk into this office, there will be music.
So the Grammy's are one of the awards shows that I actually like to watch. I love knowing who takes home the most prizes, which new musicians I need to listen to and who wore what gown. Last night was no exception. Our on demand deliveries DFW team is bringing you the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
The Good. *Courtesy of your medical deliveries Dallas team*
- Justin Timberlakes' big comeback to the Grammy stage. I'm pretty sure the former boy-bander had his hair chemically straightened, but darn if it didn't look good! He did a fabulous job in his retro inspired set. I was also thrilled to see Jay-Z hop on stage for a collaborative rap. The change from rap to the orchestra was really amazing and such a cool transition for listeners.
- The Mavis Staples, Mumford & Sons, Zac Brown, Elton John and Brittany Howard (Alabama Shakes) collaboration. Mavis Staples was downright amazing. She had me totally impressed. This collaboration was perfect in my opiinion.
- Rihanna's Dress. Rihanna donned a stunning red ball gown on the red carpet and it had just about every fashionista talking. It fit her perfectly and she looked radiant. While I wasn't a fan of the ensemble she wore during her performance, the red dress makes up for that wardrobe choice in my opinion.
- Sting and Bruno Mars. Need I say more? Just loved it.

- We are never, ever, ever going to have to see that performance again, right? Poor Taylor Swift just can't hack it live. Obviously, this is a personal opinion, so feel free to disagree. I didn't understand the whole circus theme and I was not a fan of her British accent beating up yet another ex boyfriend. That seemed very tacky. You're already writing a song about the kid, do you have to make your bitterness so obvious? Sounds off in the comments section if you disagree!
- J Lo's dress. This is another personal opinion so feel free to disagree. I wasn't a huge fan of the black, high slitted dress. I actually don't think is flattered her well at all.
- Rihanna and Chris Brown. Domestic violence, a restraining order, picture of Rihanna's bloody face... and they get back together? This is just confusing all around.
The Ugly.*Courtesy of our food deliveries Dallas team*
- Johnny Depp. I didn't really understand his get up, and he didn't introduce himself. That whole introduction to Mumford & Sons felt awkward. What was with all of the scarves?
- Forrest Gump. That whole set was strange to me. There are plenty of great Frank Ocean songs - why choose the random one about Forrest Gump? And it wasn't even engaging. Meh.
- Carrie Underwood. Only Carrie topped Ocean in the snooze cruise. Talk about a boring performance. Projecting images on a dress seems cool on paper, but major bust.
There you have it. The good, the bad and the ugly. The Grammy's had it all. If you didn't at least watch the performances, jump on it. There were some fabulous sets!
