Girl, put your records on

Sunday brings us the 49th Grammy Awards (8:00 p.m. on CBS). I used to watch the Grammys religiously, but am not sure I care this year. I guess I hope the Dixie Chicks do well, but that’s for political reasons (I’m no fan of country music).

If I do tune in, it will be to see Earth, Wind & Fire, Beyoncé and Corinne Bailey Rae. James Blunt will also be performing, but he should be called James Sharp because he pierces my eardrums and makes them bleed.

Cobie Smulders (otherwise known as Leigh Ostin from season 2 of The L Word) will present an award. But that’s not half as exciting as the fact that Alyson Hannigan will also show up to tell us who the Grammy goes to. (I guess maybe they’ll present together, since they’re both on How I Met Your Mother now. That could be a visually pleasing moment.)
