Kings of Leon keeps BYOB alive at the Grammys

Record of the year winners Kings of Leon admitted in during acceptance speech that they were a little drunk. While hanging out with them backstage, CNN could see why - they were passing out celebratory silver flasks to one another.

The alcohol, no doubt, is to help them keep their cool. The musicians said they are "stunned" by the win; record of the year marked their third Grammy win.

Unfortunately, Kings of Leon ended up missing the tribute to Michael Jackson - the one thing they actually wanted to see. Let's hope they have Tivo.

    Boy, I'm sure glad this article about Kings of Leon was turned into yet another MJ discussion.

    Spare me! Michael Schmichael. He was a very talented and entertaining musical performer but branding him a revolutionary is pushing it a bit far. When your world-wide audience is mostly made up of people of questionable taste it really isn't too dificult to impress.

    I agree with most of what people are saying.... Taylor honey, you cannot sing, at all. As for her snatching the grammy from Beyonce, well, that is not necessarily true. It's more like the lesser of two evils. I mean really, Beyonce can't sing either, not at all. Most people can't admit the fact that the only thing she has going for herself is that fake hair she want's us all to believe is hers, the way she twirls her head around with that hair, her theratics are more like what you would see and a mens club, well i guess she needs to do all that to compsensate for the fact she can't sing. The other thing she's got going is that she is married to JayZ, another one who can't sing. He and other's like him (Jamie Foxx and others) need to act their age, get off and stay off the stage. At some point I do hope they realize that they have outgrown RAP, which isn't music at all, just a bunch of rhyme, awful rhyme at that.

    Michael Jackson was not a saint; however you have got to acknowledge this guy was brilliant. Michael didn’t copy music he created music, and dance. I think the tribute to MJ was well deserved. If any thing they didn’t do him justice with the tribute.

    Michael Jackson has contributed so much to the music industry, he has revolutionized and expanded the entire music industry, so while little minded people who are either too dumb to understand or choose to ignore the reality of how much of a genius he truly was and refuse to give him his credit and have the nerve to get mad when others wish to express thier thanks and gratitude towards him, all I can say is "build a bridge and get over it" as long as music exist there will always be some sort of tribute to MJ. He deserves that and so much more.

    Michael Jackson was not a saint/ hero. He was a very drugged out, very confused, abused, person that made good music. He was no martyr and let's put a time limit on how much longer we have to endure tribute after tribute. I'm surprised his casket was not pulled on stage at the Grammys as a prop for the show. It's very obvious that Joe Jackson and hollywood will squeeze as much money out of MJ's death as possible. It's time to let him go people!

    I was very disappointed in the Michael Jackson tribute. I was expecting that the Grammys was going to give more time to the legacy that Michael Jackson left. It would have been great to see clips of his career from the Jackson 5 to the memorable proformance of Mowtown 25 years......that would have been a "true" tribute.
