LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Serene Branson was not hospitalized and did not suffer a stroke last night. Serene Branson attempted to provide a news recap of last night’s Grammy Awards. But after a night of peculiar stage performance and red carpet antics, Serene Branson like many viewers was lost for words. Despite delivering an unintelligible report that prompted Los Angeles viewers’ concerns, and even incorrect British news reports, Serene Branson was fine, just a bit nervous.
The Grammys have never been known for outlandish antics as bizarre as MTVâ€™s music awards. Last night, the Grammys changed that.
The evening started with Lady Gaga arriving in an egg. News reporters covering the red carpet action were unsure what to call the Gaga-mobile, some calling it a “pod”, others an “egg dress”. And unlike any previous meat dress, this year’s Gaga “outfit” got hatched.
Then there was Cee Lo Green and Gwyneth Paltrow Grammys duet in which Green appeared in some bird inspired psychedelic creation that seemed to have just raided Elton John’s closet. Muppets provided backup.
The evening ended in a series of big Grammy surprises. Esperanza Spalding beat out Drake and Justin Bieber for best new artist. Spalding told news after her win that “I take this honor to heart so sincerely, and I will do my damndest to make a whole lot of great music for all of you.” Arcade Fire pulled off the biggest win, nabbing Album of the Year for “The Suburbs”, beating out Eminem, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.
But when the telecast was over, local affiliate CBS2’s turned to Serene Branson to recap the night of bizarre outfits and stunning upsets. She was simply lost for words.
