Grammy's Best Moments

A show called 'My Night at the Grammy's' is currently on CBS highlighting the fan's choices for best Grammy moments at the award shows of the past. Two things I hate are so called "fan's choices", because it usually involves Avril Lavigne or the entire cast of High School Musical, and the other thing is award shows with their scripted banter and celebrities in attendance only because they won.

Once in a while an award show does something right. An example:

The 2003 Grammy Awards honoring Joe Strummer with Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Dave Grohl, and Lil Steven Van Zandt performing 'London Calling' by The Clash. It's badass and worth the click.

Interesting 'London Calling' Fun Fact: The song was performed by Bob Dylan in 2005 during his short residency at Brixton Academy in London, the site of many legendary Clash concerts.
