Well, I thought it could not get worse, but it did. The two women who sang our patriotic songs at the Super Bowl were even worse than the two who sang at the president's inauguration. Congratulations to the children from Sandy Hook who were perfect in their pitch and hit all the right notes and by comparison made the two women sound pathetic. I repeat, listen to Kate Smith's recordings of "God Bless America" or find other careers. Sueanne Greenwood, Timonium

You oughta know who was the big winner at the Grammy Awards last night.Although Seal dominated the major categories, winning both Record and Song of the Year, it was Alanis Morissette who took home the most trophies: Album of the Year, Female Rock Vocal Performance, Best Rock Album and Best Rock Song. Hootie & the Blowfish were named Best New Artist.It would be an understatement to say that Morissette's work is not typical Grammy fare. As host Ellen DeGeneres said after "Jagged Little Pill" was named Album of the Year, "I really couldn't imagine going to my parents and playing that song for them.

Tuesday night on NBC's "The Voice," it was a battle between the singer who can dance and the dancer who can sing,  between twee and bombastic, and the time-saving glory of the montage and my poor memory of "who the hell are these people. " TEAM CEE LO Cee Lo Green took to the field first, pairing of dancer/singer/model/whatever Domo against foul-mouthed, bleeping wonder Cody Belew with Lady Gaga and Beyonce's "Telephone. " (All Hail the Queens.) Cee Lo put it best: Cody's a singer who can dance, and Domo's a dancer who can sing, and he wanted to see who had the whole package.

The Annapolis Chorale and Chamber Orchestra capped another stellar season last weekend with Carl Orff's Carmina Burana - the choice of subscribers who voted at the start of the season - featuring four soloists and members of the Annapolis Youth Chorus. The program opened with Ralph Vaughan Williams' Serenade to Music, a melodic work set to Shakespeare's words, written for orchestra and vocal soloists plus choir. Chorale members brought their distinctive beautiful sound to this piece. Featured soprano Ashleigh Rabbitt, appearing for the second time this season, filled Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts with a gorgeous sound, made more so when joined by tenor Andre Bierman.

The year may have belonged to Mariah Carey and Kanye West, but last night's Grammy Awards show did not. Surprisingly, U2 owned it, winning all five awards for which the Irish rockers were nominated, including album of the year for How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb. Carey and West garnered eight nominations apiece but each walked away with just three golden gramophones and none in the major categories. Last night's show, which refreshingly didn't feature a host, was a mix of the surreal and the mundane.
