Grammys Travel: Who Didn't Go, Go, Go?
The story at last night's Grammy Awards was largely about who didn't make it to the show, not who did: Because of an eleventh-hour visa rejection, award frontrunner Amy Winehouse couldn't leave rehab to sing "Rehab" nor to pick up any of her five trophies.
Of course, maybe Kanye West would rather have skipped the awards when he once again lost Album of the Year--this time to Herbie Hancock for his Joni Mitchell concept album "River: The Joni Letters."
Rihanna performed and picked up an award for best Rap/Sung Collaboration with Jay-Z, a trinket that probably was comforting when she got into a wee fender-bender on the way out. Elsewhere, Barack Obama won a Grammy for the audio version of his latest book, beating out former president Bill Clinton in a coincidence that says absolutely nothing about the election.
