TV PARTY
Grammys 2006 Rewind


Since it's a safe bet that you, like most of the television viewing audience, spent Wednesday night watching American Idol instead of the Grammy Awards, let me take a liberty and fill you in on what you missed.

Besides Kanye West wearing black OJ gloves and baring his chest hair, the show included the bizarre reappearance, gigantic mohawk and all, of that funkiest of recluses, Sly Stone; Mariah Carey belting out her summer hit "We Belong Together" (shut up, you love it); U2 reprising "One" with Mary J. Blige; and three other performances that now, thanks to the magic of YouTube.com, you can already watch again and again in streaming video.

And if for some reason (ex. sadism) you want to watch the whole thing instead of just the good bits, take a click over to Rhapsody's online stream.
