touching heartfelt speeches by Annie Lennox and Bowie's good friend Gary Oldman...
performance by Bowie's studio band with Lorde on vocals...
Oldman says that Bowie once said that "Lorde is the future of music", so I guess if he said that then she is
the right person to do the job at hand....
I think Gaga's tribute was very good at the Grammy's...very 'out there' like a lot of David's personas
but the Brtis topped it with their classy tribute speeches and Lorde's classy subdued performance
but what do you guys think????
Much more respectful.
Emotional yet restrained performances by everyone on stage Ė perfect.
Lorde is truly edgy which may have helped her to transmute something of the essence of Bowie; also, she was genuinely feeling it IMHO. By comparison, Gagaís tribute seems simply brash.
You can dress things up in bright and shiny coverings that dazzle and bemuse, but at the end of the day, itís what lies at the core that counts.

totally agree with you Ruby: You can dress things up in bright and shiny coverings that dazzle and bemuse, but at the end of the day, itís what lies at the core that counts.
