HMOffsuite: I normally don’t watch the Grammys. But, because of the Whitney Houston passing, I thought I would watch tonight. I happen to get the East Coast network feed on my Directv. So, I got it 3 hours early, live. The tributes to Whitney were tear jerkers and the entire program was quite good. The original Beach Boys are back together for their 50th, including Brian. They did a tribute thing for Glen Campbell who now going downhill rapidly.

DFO: I watched — and for the most part — enjoyed the Grammy Awards Sunday. I can understand why Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Usher, Suburb, Eminem, etc., are stars in the music industry (although they're definitely not my taste). But I simply can't understand why Justin Bieber is such a ha-huge star. The 16YO seems fairly pop culture in a generation that prefers hard rock and alternative.
Question: Can you explain why Justin Bieber is a singing sensation?
