As far as the performances go, Stevie Wonder certainly stole a lot of the show with his take on "We Can Work It Out". Paul's band really appeared to be into it. Hanson---err, excuse me, The Jonas Brothers put on a decent version of "Drive My Car". I only played through bits and pieces of a lot of the other performances after this point. It was cool to hear Paul and Stevie perform "Ebony & Ivory". Both were in fine vocal form for that one. Paul's performances were a little predictable but at least his voice sounded natural, unlike it did with the poorly-mixed and produced Good Evening New York City.
I can't say this is one that will get too many repeated viewings at my place, but it was cool to see Paul win this award.
, If you want to recognize the man then you must do it with real, huge stars. Real musicians who play at his level or close to it. The Jonas Brothers? What is this? Disney Channel? I think this man deserves much more than that, something like the wonderful Concert for George.
