    Not sure when it airs for everyone else, it just started here, Bruce sounds great, I like the new song. Mix sounds good on my TV.

    I was late to Bruce. What I saw looked great.
    Foo Fighters were good. Same blue gibson. That's some guitar -- the dude likes.

    They did "Walk" from Wasting Light. They killed it, of course! I hope Dave never cuts his hair...;)

    "Walk" just won a Grammy! Woo hoo!

    I am really impressed with bruno mars. That song was fun, quite the stage performance as well.

    Great job on the Beach Boys' tunes by Maroon 5 and Foster the People.

    Now for the real thing.

    Not a great Bruce song, but that guy owns every venue he walks into...

    Bruno Mars was tight, and it appears he can really sing. Fun.

    I just got good vibrations from the Beach Boys, and Maroon 5 and Foster the people. They even used the white Strat's and the boy's clothing. That was fun.

    Beach Boys were not bad! I got chills. Chills are good.

    Gee I was just on Yahoo and they dogged B.S. intro as insensitive and posted threads called the show crappy so far. Crazy.

    There's been a lot good going on in this year's show. Well worth the watch.

    Bruce was very good.
    Bruno Mars killed!
    As did Foo Fighters
    Alicia and Bonnie did a nice job.
    Beach Boys' tribute was well done and it was nice to see them on stage together (what's left of them).

    Brian Wilson looked liked he'd rather be just about anywhere else than on stage with Mike Love. The second they were done he headed right off stage. Doubt we will see them together again. The bands doing the tributes were great!

    I was annoyed that the civil wars could only play for a minute because Taylor swift had to come out and play.

    I can get into Paul's renditions of oldies. But he can still rock out. As much as he was the guy that sang Another Lover Song, he really doesn't pull off the Sinatra thing as well. Brian Stetzer does a way better Frank. But Paul is Paul, and he is a huge talent still. I am just not sure he should join the bandwagon of 60s/70s sensations doing 40s/50s big band tunes. Paul did that already with The Beatles. Rod Stewart did not. So his versions are somewhat newish sounding.

    I'd love it if Paul would come up with something to rock our socks off like he used to. I KNOW he still can! He does it every show doing his old songs. He's still got it. So, bring it on! Do another I'm Down. You can still sing it, so write something else rocking like that.

    Go Paul! You can still do it! So, DO IT!
