Grammy ... 2006 .....

I loved the GRAMMY AWARDS CEREMONY …
Right from the Green carpet walks [Note: NOT red-carpet ... but GREEN-carpet ... Thanks to sponsors Heineken Beer] till the end ... With Sly Stone [of “Sly & The Family Stone”] walking in with Mohawk-hairstyle ... and an ensemble of singers accompanying him ...

Green Carpet Walk: It’s all about cloths and my fav three:
• Alicia Keys looked absolutely Gorgeous! Stunning! Ravishing!
• Joss Stone looked pretty in a very colorful gown …
• Kanye West in classic red-white-black
• hmmmm … one more … Keith Urban looked super cool!!!

MY favorite Moments in the ceremony:
1. The opening song… in which Madonna looked sexy as ever
2. Mariah Carey looked angelic & I loved her performance, “We belong together”
3. There has to be one tear-full speech. Well this time it was Kelly Clarkson, ex-American Idol’s acceptance speech
4. No surprise date for Keith Urban, YES there she was - Nicole Kidman
5. Paul McCartney was a treat to behold, songs “Helter-Skelter” & “Yesterday”
6. "Maroon 5" members also looked super-cool in most de-grunged, de-punked civil-looks
7. Stevie Wonder … [ his remarkable sense of humor!!!] … and wonderful song, “Higher Ground”
8. Bruce Springsteen …. “bring them back” addendum after the song, “Devils & Dust”
9. Sly Stone [Of "Sly & The Family Stone"; “ I want to take you higher” song with a motley of singers ... including ... Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Joss Stone, Maroon 5, John Legend ...
10. THE BEST was for the last ... U2 rocked!!!
