Still doing a victory dance! Although watching the Giants win in a pub in Switzerland is like listening to music with headphones on: You are having a blast but the people around you know are up to something but have no idea what the hell it is!

Don't like country music? I thought it was fine.

I like bluegrass and the occasional country song but admittedly it isn't my favorite. Unlike Kelly Clarkson who did a nice job on a difficult song, what I heard was a couple with put-on accents making a hash of an easy song to sing.

I'm sorry, not, that I missed that. Who was it?

Oh, I looked it up. I have to agree with Griff on this one. I've always liked that they don't try to make Kelly Clarkson "country" like they did with Carrie Underwood. For CU, to me, that's the best she can do.

I've heard of Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, but that's as far as my knowledge of them goes.

Yes, there are occasional good country songs, and bluegrass is indeed very nice, but Hats and Fluff do not good music make.

We must have different ears. I thought it was a simple and straightforward performance. They hit the notes and didn't flub any lines.

I will acknowledge that Clarkson had the more difficult job. And I also thought she did a great job of it. I've never cared for Christina Aguilera's vocal gymnastics.

I agree with you there, Pete. I used to like Christina, but hearing her constantly doing the 'wavy' voice thing (don't know what that's called musically) turns me right off. Being wavy in certain spots is very nice...but not EVERY single note.

Clarkson even did a little bit more of that than I'd hoped, but she is quite talented and I thought it was lovely nonetheless.

O.M.G.

I have chicken skin (goosebumps.) Sometimes I forget how amazing Whitney is, then I see something like this.

She is perfection walking around like a mere mortal.

Right.

None of her personal issues negate the fact that she's a talented, beautiful woman.
