Ladies’ Night: Grammys Were About the Chicks … Except For One

carriebored.jpgGrammys night was ladies’ night, with Mary J. Blige and the Dixie Chicks, giving stunning performances and heartfelt acceptance speeches.

But some of the female artists looked like they were just waiting for the night to end so they could slink back into their sweat pants. (We’re looking at you, Carrie Underwood.)

Beyonce sings her heart out, and Carrie Underwood looks bored. Tony Bennett and Stevie Wonder get an award — that Stevie dedicates to his dead mom — and Carrie Underwood looks bored. The camera pans to Prince, who is sitting right in front of Carrie Underwood, and she smiles. And then looks bored. (Good thing the camera didn’t cut to her during that interminably boring John Mayer/Corrine Bailey Rae/John Legend act).

Even when she took the stage to accept her own awards and perform those purdy country songs, Carrie Underwood looked bored. Jesus, take the wheel; Carrie’s too bored to drive.
