10:59 Brad deserved it last year, got it this year. Carrie deserved it this year, will hopefully get it next year. When the history list is written though, nobody’s gonna care which year they won in, just that they were acknowledged. So a good end to an okay night. – KC

10:58 Very, very pleased! And what a sweet, sincere moment. – TS

10:57 You know, I’m kind of relieved. Granted, Brad gave possibly the worst performance of the night and is generally not someone I like much, but I just didn’t feel like having to listen to a bunch of whining tomorrow about Miranda or Lady A or someone winning. – DM

Idol Opry Night: Live Blog

March 17, 2009 // 122 Comments

Country Universe continues its annual tradition of live-blogging country night on American Idol. LIVE BLOG 9:55 Kind of boring night overall. I liked Anoop the most. Not too much stood out for me. 9:52 When I reviewed “So Small”, I think that I mentioned it would sound better stripped down. No surprise I liked the first half of this performance more. 9:51 Interesting that only the men took on Carrie this year. Probably a good move on the women’s part, as none of them could go toe to toe with her. 9:46 Ten down, one to go. 9:45 Again, I feel they’re just pushing certain people. 9:43 This is the second time tonight – the first being Adam Lambert – that I feel I’m watching a parody of Idol. 9:41 “Walking After Midnight” is the first song that I actually associate with the Opry that’s been performed tonight. 9:33 I’ll Read More

11:28 Kevin: Goodnight all. See ya at the ACM Live Blog! 11:26 Dan: You know what is a surprise? Krauss and Plant both giving completely lucid-sounding speeches. Love ’em both, but those are two of the loopiest public speakers I’ve ever heard. 11:25 Kevin: So Alison Krauss now has 26 Grammy awards, and has been thanked by Robert Plant for teaching him how to sing better. Wow. 11:24 Album of the Year: Raising Sand, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss. Woah, no way. 11:23 Kevin: I want the new Green Day album more than anything else in 2009. 11:21 Kevin: Fun Fact – Robert Plant turned down millions of dollars to do a Led Zeppelin reunion tour because he wanted to tour with Alison instead.  I wonder if Zed Heads have taken to calling her Yoko? 11:22 Dan: Ah yes, the hand-clap section of the song. 11:20 Kevin: Hey, T-Bone.
