Lady Gaga took the stage in an egg at the Grammys. Cee Lo Green came dressed as a peacock — and because he brought puppets and Gwyneth Paltrow, well, we kinda think he upstaged Lady Gaga.
Cee Lo performed the radio-friendly version of his infectious,
Grammy-nominated song “F*** You” — identified on the show as “the song
otherwise known as ‘Forget You'” — at Sunday’s (Feb. 13) Grammys,
sitting at a mirror-covered piano wearing a suit of red feathers, a
breastplate and chain-mail coif and a riot of giant, multi-colored
feathers on his back.
And also: Puppets! A puppet band, complete with three puppet backup
singers and a weird-looking dog bopping along at the piano, accompanied
Cee Lo on the first couple of verses before Gwyneth Paltrow, who performed “F*** You” when she was a guest star on “Glee,”
joined him for the remainder of the song. She did her best impression
of Michelle Pfeiffer in “The Fabulous Baker Boys,” slinking around on
the top of the piano.
But mostly, the feathers and the puppets. That was just fantastic.
