Last night at the Grammys-of-England, Katy Perry lost International Solo Artist to Rihanna. When those ladies performed at our Grammys on Sunday, they did so inside of baubled and layered costumes, hoisted on swings and/or in front of fake and real fires. Adele spurned any hatching/burning theatricality when she performed "Someone Like You" at the Brit Awards last night. That song closes her album 21 that's #1 in 17 countries and counting. You don't need anything more than a piano to captivate when you look and sound like this, mean this much to gays and straights and women. For Brits coverage (Bieber won something, Arcade Fire too) delivered in a British accent, head over to the Guardian.
