Evan Sawdey commented in his Grammys essay this morning about the seemingly random match-up of artists last night during the telecast. Well not entirely random, they all share in common moving major change. About this pairing he said, “Coldplay’s Chris Martin delivering a sensitive piano rendition of “Lost!” only to have Jay-Z barge in half-way through in order to move more copies of the Prospekt’s March EP?” It doesn’t entirely work, does it?
