things that are strange

Watching John Legend, Seal, and I what I'm thinking is a Jonas brother playing backup to Jaime Foxx, Temptations-style.

Watching Jaime Foxx, Seal, and John Legend backup a Jonas brother (Nick?  I can't tell you how sad I am that I know this).

Less weird: Seal.

No, no, Jonas brother is still too weird.

Whoo hoo!  John Legend!

And yet, still weird that they coordinated dancing among the four of them.

Things that are cool: that entire room (East Room?).  The President and First Lady singing along.  The Bidens.  People dancing.  The First Lady dancing.

I'm betting right now that I know all the songs.  Thanks, Mom and Dad, for making me listen to these songs.  I'm only halfway sarcastic.

Things that are awesome: Sheryl Crow singing and dancing.  I'm not sure if I've ever seen her perform w/o a guitar.  Oh, baby, give me one more chance....  I want you back! Actually, Sheryl Crow is awesome.

Oh, boy. I came here, excited to finally answer comments...and I get distracted by Motown.  

OMG it was Nick Jonas.  This is weird.  Heh, bb Obama is excited (younger one...Sascha?  adorbs).  And he's wearing a tie.  And remembering the words is impressive considering who's in the front row.  And in that room.  Sugar pie, honey bunch. You know that I love you. I can't help myself.  I love you and nobody else.

My guy!  Talkin' about my guy.  

 Best job of the night: the band.  Maybe the band leader, but no matter what everyone's awesome.

Marvin Gaye!  John Legend!  Whoo hooo!  I heard it through it the grapevine.  Love this song.  And yet, Gladys Knight is probably in the audience, y?  I love everyone singing along/mouthing along the words.  All these singers dancing who I usually see around an instrument.  I'm kind of loving this.

Stop, in the name of love.  Before you break my heart.  What a curious trio.  CALLED THE SONG.  Natasha Bedingfield, Jordan Sparks (?), and why am I blanking on the third, Cecily, this isnt embarrassing for me or anything..she just sang, too.  And they're dancing, too!  Think it o-o-over.  Hee more audience singing along and dancing!

MY GIRL.  SEAL.  WHAT IS THIS.  OMG SEAL IS DANCING, TOO, WORKING THE MIKE.  He's never looked sexier.  Wow.

MOTOWN BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER BECAUSE WE ALL SING AND DANCE

OMG SMOKEY ROBINSON AND HE'S THERE AND SHE'S SINGING HIS SONG FUCK WOW. People say I'm the life of the party...  get up there, Smokey! :)  I need you. need you  need you.  I'm masquerading.  My whole life is fading.  Oh, since you put me down, my smile is my makeup I wear since my breakup with you!!!!

OMG EVERYONE'S SINGING ALONG AND DANCING AND MOTOWN DOES THIS FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES AND NO ONE'S EMBARRASSED EVEN THOUGH...it's on PBS.  and not many people are watching..... :D

SO IMPRESSIVE.  he's in the room.  SO IMPRESSIVE.

FUCK YEAH, AMBER RILEY.  STEVIE WONDER'S IN THE ROOM, TOO.   Just enough for the city.  Her voice is amazing.  

I have not heard of Gloriana.  Ain't no mountain high, ain't no valley low...to keep me from getting to you babe.  I'll be there in a hurry, you won't have to worry.

YOU CAN'T HURRY LOVE.  How long must I wait, how much more can I take.  But I keep on waiting, anticipating, for the soft voice to talk to me at night.  Awesome voice, Jordan Sparks.  I feel like I should know who you are  /is old (and, hey, I got a Jonas brother :))

SMOKEY ROBINSON!!!!!!  WITH CHERYL CROW!!!! OMG
I love you madly, you really got a hold on me XD  OMG MORE DANCING FOR SHERYL CROW WITH SMOKEY ROBINSON.  (and if I'm being snarky - first clothing change of the night goes to SC :D)

Close out the show? :(

STEVIE WONDER STEVIE WONDER STEVIE WONDER FUCK YEAH
You are the sunshine of my life :D  
Hee, MO is singing along and dancing.  As are we all.  So cute, though.
And Smokey Robinson is still onstage.  Oh, the awesomeness.

one more song! one more song! one more song!

make a joyful noise

dancing in the street! ...and Puck's there?  So bizarre.
Yay, more Seal!  Oh, wee Jonas brother.  And Smokey Robinson brought Berry Gordy up, awesome.  Martha Reeves!  And she's singing her song!

Aww, okay, Sascha is adorable, shaking hands with everybody.  Heh, and the President is dancing and embarrassing his daughter at the same time.  Absolutely the way it should be XD


Hmm.  Did I just liveblog a PBS program?  


Why, yes, yes I did.  That was not my intention when I just started...I just thought the opening quartet was...an unusual one.  And then I got sucked in by the music.  


And in honor of Academy Award-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin: In the meantime, at a time when the public is rightly concerned about the impact of sex and violence on TV, this administration is gonna protect the MUPPETS! We're gonna protect Wall Street Week, we're gonna protect Live from Lincoln Center, and by God, we are going to protect Julia Child. (ahem--Miss Julia Child.  I heart Toby)

Toby's speech in defense of the Muppets was wonderful - one of the things that truly endeared him to me. That, and secret-spaceship-gate.

I'm going to avoid trying to figure out what in the name of all that is holy you were watching, but I will mention that that Jonas thingy was on Mr. Sunshine...last week? Week before? I think the latter. Are you watching it? It's so fantastic.

i'm sorry, but i'm not really sure what just happened. i only skimmed this, but i think if i really fleshed it out i'd do permanent irreversible damage. as it is, i think i lost some brain usage, but i'm not.... wow.
