I'll never forget where I was the moment I realized the Emmys weren't going to be all that entertaining this year. Merely informative, with pretty dresses and pressed tuxedos.

They had to do somethig to keep people from talking about how they farked Klugman and Hagman over.

They should have had Boyz II Men do it, that's still my favorite version.
 
2013-09-23 03:08:06 AM  
She wasn't singing a "Beatles" song which only involved one member of the band to honor the band, right?

They should have gotten Paul McCartney to do it.

Lsherm: cretinbob: Oh my God...it really is that bad

That's the one I watched.  She wasn't off-key, it was just a "countrified" version of the song.

Really, they could have had Miley Cyrus do it.  That would have been a train wreck.


She was off key and off tempo, at least through the first verse. I couldn't stand any more than that, so she may have recovered.

For 30 years, I successfully repressed all memory of that abomination. Your post brought it back in a flood of total suck.

Thanks.

The biggest surprise - for me, at least - was Colbert finally stealing an Emmy from Jon Stewart.

It's as if she's just an over-hyped karaoke game show winner or something.
 
2013-09-23 07:40:41 AM  
Sorry, it was disappointing. She started off-key and finally found where she needed to be...

There are son's of Beatle's - Paul lives in NYC, heck Ringo was probably on tour nearby (he seems to ALWAYS be on tour) - not being able to get one of them was disappointing - if you have the budget for Sir Elton, surely you could spring for Sir Paul.
 
2013-09-23 07:55:14 AM  
I thought she was awful. Started off-key, and by the time she recovered it was too late.
But I also have to wonder why they felt they had to shoe horn in a Beatles tribute right there. It was a piece about the influence of TV in that 'very special' year of 1963, and they led off with Cronkite and the JFK assassination. So, all these big 1963 TV stories, tying together 1963-2013... then they jump ahead to 1964 just to get in a Beatles reference.

Also, Cory Montieth had no place in those memorials. Klugman got screwed.

She's a decent performer, but her voice and range really aren't well suited for that song.

Of course, the best line of the night was when NPH was introducing the Deschanel sisters.

She wasn't THAT bad, I mean it wasn't great but it wasn't that bad.

Besides, I was still trying to knead down my boner from Sofia Vergara's dress so I was a little distracted

Actually, after seeing the format of the memorials, it made a bit more sense.   These memorials didn't show any of the body of work... so, it was more just touching anecdotes rather than anything... although Klugman and Hagman still seemed to get short-served by just having the 2 second face shot as the rest.

But, those 2-3 minute memorials, they all had some sort of other well-known actor who worked with them give their thoughts, and not only well known, but, their relationship to the late person was well known (Williams work with Winters on M&M, Fox being on Family Ties, Sopranos, Meathead).  Even the Jane Lynch one was better than I thought, with an obtuse mention of the fact that he didn't die it a very 'dignified' way.     So, half serious here... while you could come up with Patrick Duffy as a reasonably well known person to do one for Hagman (although I don't know what their off screen relationship was, but, they were working on the Dallas revival together, so, they'd worked together very recently).... who would have been a good "comparable" person to the other tributes to do one for Jack Klugman?  I mean, yeah, his son could have done it, but, that wasn't what the emmy's were going for.... what somewhat more "contemporary" (ie, under 70 y/o) actor/actress had a good and well known relationship with Jack Klugman for the type of thing they were trying to do across the show?

Isn't Tony Curtis still alive? Who cares if its contemporary, on a show where they play a beatles song song by a country singer, they could have had Tony Curtis eulogize his friend. Or hell had someone from CSI out there basically thanking Klugman for giving them the format for their show.
 
2013-09-23 10:27:08 AM  
Her voice didn't really suit the song.  But she wasn't that bad.  I think in the era of autotune people expect everything to be pitch perfect.  But it doesn't always work that way, live.

Tony Curtis died 3 years ago.

That is the problem when you die @ 90.... there is a really good chance that any contemporaries you have to do something like this won't be around.  And as I said, I can't think of anyone under 70 that could have done one for Klugman that fit the format of the other 5.  Your CSI idea was not really as "personal" as the other one's they did, it would have felt very out of place.

I get the "outrage" a bit, but, the Emmy's were angling for something else... to really include Klugman in a more expanded way, they'd have needed to do more, even just in the regular memoriam area.... why they went with just "face shots" in the thing instead of showing some "body of work" during the longer memoriam, I don't know.... if they'd done that, Klugman and Hagman could have had 15-20 second segments at least then, vs. the 2-3 seconds everyone else got.

Covering a well known Beatles song is one of the riskiest things a singer can attempt; the songs are iconic and even if you manage to sound exactly like the Beatles you will be criticized for sounding exactly like the Beatles.
What is your favorite cover of a Beatles song?

Apparently a big fan, Underwood corresponded with Paul McCartney and got his permission to sing the song.
