Taylor was nervous performing with her idol and Stevie sounds gritty like she's gargling.

Sounds like the kid could have benefited from use of an Autotune unit....

I don't get Taylor Swit.. Thats alot of Grammy's for someone that cannot sing.
Stevie Nicks has done more living in a week than Ms Swit has done in her lifetime.
Whoever thought up that duet should be flogged.

Well, Stevie Nicks is awesome, even still, with her intensely gritty vocal chops. Great musician, too. I will say that Taylor Swift keeps the whining and yodeling down to a minimum, which is good, considering current singing styles. (Nothing wrong with yodeling, done right. I loves me some good yodeling, western, alpine, or whatever you got):

HOWEVER (she said portentously), Miz Swift should be slapped and flogged for screwing up Stevie's "Rhiannon" with her atrocious tin ear. The line "All your life you've never seen a woman taken by the wind"? Listen to her on the word "life" - my God! Old Stevie tries to sing over her a couple of times but when she's in the lower register old Swift just cuts right through with her horribleness. Oh, it made me weep my tears from mine eyes!

But, when Imelda May and Jeff Beck did "How High the Moon" in tribute to Les Paul, it was great, even though his guitar solo faltered in a couple of places. LOVED her dress, too. So there was something worth listening to, at least.

The last song was the best. Taylor Swift has got a lot of charm and charisma and Stevie, well... she's got that and more.
