Touching on the 2009 Grammy Awards...

The 51st annual presentation of the Grammy Awards came and went.

It was a night of surprises, a night of great performances, but it was not without controversy.

The biggest surprise was Blink 182's return to the stage. Blink 182 has been on hiatus for about four years due to separate projects (including Angels & Airwaves and +44). They'll be going on tour over the summer and putting out a new album potentially sometime later this year.

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss took home five Grammies including Record and Album of the Year.

Lil' Wayne took home four, dominating the Rap categories and Coldplay earned Song of the Year with "Viva La Vida".

There were performances aplenty, over 20, probably enough to make a CD or DVD of them all.

I probably won't be predicting the Grammies ever again, because I didn't fare too well. Again, good thing I didn't bet on it.

However, the one story that made the Grammies so memorable barely had anything to do with the Grammies.

Chris Brown turned himself into the authorities after a physical fight with Rihanna. The story is still unfolding and the drama continues.
