So, yeah, I'm watching the Grammys right now and dutifully monitoring the #GRAMMYs hash tag on Twitter (thanks for the helpful reminders, LL). Color me confused. I feel like I just walked into the middle of a movie:
On the set, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley are in the middle of a duet. The Twitterverse, meanwhile, is buzzing about Rhianna's performance. Come again? When? Did I miss something? How? I haven't even so much as gotten up to go to the bathroom?
And so then, I refresh my Twitter feed a little bit later, only to see some tweets congratulating the Zach Brown Band -- just as Ellen and Beyonce are introducing Justin Timberlake. Feel like you're trapped in an episode of Early Edition, that show where Coach Taylor got the next day's paper inexplicably delivered to his doorstep the day before. Me, too. So, what gives? Ah, yes, there it is -- tape delay. Again.
