Our Grammy Predictions & Results: We Called It!

Last night, Hills and I enjoyed burritos and beer while literally *screaming* at The Grammy Awards, airing live from Los Angeles. Did you see the show? Were you as bored as we were at times? No matter whether you are into rock, hip-hop or country, the show attempted to please everyone with performances, tributes and the addition of 50 unneeded dancers on stage at all times. When our girl Esperanza won for Best New Artist, I screamed and then remembered that we totally called it—let’s see how we did with our Parlour Grammy Predictions:
