So there you have it – a pretty energetic, impassioned performance…

Eminem and Dr. Dre at the Grammys 2011 I have to say I was expecting a lot more, maybe some big visual idea or something though, considering an insider said it could be one of the most “memorable Grammy performances of all-time”. I imagine the guy who said works for CBS.

As, okay yeah, it was a nice performance but come on… remember back when Em rose out of the ground in dungaree, wearing a Jason-mask, holding a chainsaw? Or how about when he got hundreds of lookalikes to walk behind him up to the stage to perform “The Real Slim Shady”… ? Now THAT is what you call memorable. This… was just good.

I love Em’s obvious passion again, he really looks like he’s putting his every blood vessel into it haha but, come on Em… you know that your art is more than the rapping, think BIG again. Please!

What did you think of it?

    Yeah right, like the grammies are gonna let him walk out with a chainsaw, lol, all of those performances you mentioned were on the MTV awards, who have much lower standards

      I didn’t say they’d let him walk out with a chainsaw, you’re taking that one specific example as a literal implication.

      It was just an example of an extremely memorable performance to make a point.

      And, there’s a lot they will let you do. Like Lady GaGa hanging from the ceiling dead, covered in blood last year. Em is simply not making much of an effort when it comes to visuals lately. ‘Relapse’ had spectacular potential for visuals, totally wasted.

    His performance was fantastic. You could feel the energy by watching. He has become such a mentally strong person because of what he’s gone through and his passion with rap shows. I have been a fan for so long and I was so proud.

    It was okay. Specially seeing Em about to pop a blood vessel, though. Would’ve been neat if Em had done his verses at Dre’s face, like spitting in front him, seeing as if was already doing it.* And yes, I did expect something more on the visual department. And on a random note, Skylar Grey looks hot.

    *lol copyandpaste!
