the announcement[/url] in coldplay.com only mentions chris performing a Beck song. btw, are people that weren't happy with the false rihanna performance rumor happy with this collab? I am :)


Yes! Very cool that it's an alternative/indie kind of artist + I Love Beck's last album, many beautiful songs. The song 'Heart is a drum' would be great.

Yeah, I thought either I or the teleprompter had it wrong as soon as I heard it.....

But wasn't it pretty.


And Chrissy's camera stares were not anything to be noticed. really. I barely noticed them and don't even know why I'm mentioning his straight into the camera, blue eyed stares. really.

Nor was his immediate duck to the back of the stage to let Beck take the applause not his usual charming, adorable, self either.


he's just so gross, i really don't know why I even bothered to watch tonight. really.

I was definitely blown away...Chris is an Angel and his voice is pure milk and honey. Melted me when he looked into the camera like that. Have Mercy! [emoji56]
