Anyone else remember being younger and so excited to sit up late watching the Grammy’s? Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna, Whitney Houston; the Grammy’s were a showcase for the best and brightest in the music industry. The opportunity to see and hear our favorite artists on live television was huge. Now it’s a lowly rated, mostly forgotten sideshow that is simply indicative of our crumbling Western culture. The lack of artistry and creativity in the music world is shocking. Real talent has been replaced with grotesque displays of crassness and sexuality disguised as art. In short, like most awards shows, no one cares anymore. Probably why most people didn’t even know it was on. Sunday the music industry gathered together once again to pat themselves on the back and try to one-up each another with gross, sexualized performances. Think softcore porn. Better yet, don’t think softcore porn. One of the alleged biggest performances and speeches of the night were from someone named Sam Smith, a self-proclaimed “non-binary” person, and a fellow named Kim Petras, a German man living as a make-believe woman. Now you understand why I said DON’T think softcore porn? Yuck. It only gets grosser from there. Check this out.
Pop star Sam Smith, who describes himself as non-binary, peformed a BDSM Devil-themed rendition of his song “Unholy” at the Grammys on Sunday night, complete with red leather suits, flames, and cartoonish devil horns.
Leading up to Sunday’s performance, Sam Smith promised that it would likely anger Christians and cause protests at CBS for what he described as satanic imagery.

Watch the performance here:
So cool and edgy. Sam Smith is so shocking invoking images of Satan. Except dark themes, sometimes of a satanic nature have been a staple of rock and roll for generations. Has Smith ever heard of AC/DC? “Highway to Hell”? How about Motley Crue and “Shout at the Devil”? Smith isn’t quite the cutting-edge visionary he thinks he is. Unfortunately for him the vision he is likely to have someday is of the pointy tailed fellow with a pitchfork. That will surely be more upsetting and shocking than the cartoon character depiction Smith presented. Smith sought to anger Christians with his embarrassing performance, but were Christians watching? My guess would be no. I’m sure the demographic that the Grammy Awards draws from in 2023 is mostly pink haired, nose ringed liberals sitting in their mother basement smoking clove cigarettes complaining about how life is unfair. It wouldn’t be shocking if he got some angry Tweets from Satanists as well. Hey, if Satan were my go-to guy I wouldn’t want him to be portrayed by a fruit loop like Sam Smith. Just saying.
As Showbiz 411 reported, sources said that the performance would “make a lot of people very upset.”
“I guarantee there will be calls to CBS from outraged Christians,” a source close to Smith said.
Smith’s source said that the singer would “playing Satan” and that “there will be a lot of devil type stuff, devil worship, and ‘pyrotechnics like you’ve never seen.’”
“It’s over the top and really crazy,” the source said.

Prior to the performance, Sam Smith and Kim Petras, a man living as a woman, accepted the award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and the media has since been hailing it as a “historic” moment.
It was a historic moment when Will Smith “b” slapped Chris Rock last year, but that doesn’t mean it was IMPORTANT. However, it was way more entertaining than watching a pudgy white boy prancing around in a dollar store devil costume or a fake girl accepting an award for no more than being a dude in a dress. Who cares if a sneaky dude puts on a dress, some bad makeup and sings with a weirdo like Sam Smith? Maybe the fans that will age out of this nonsense in a couple years, but beyond that just the fawning media that is looking to virtue signal and get clicks and likes. Few Christians were offended because few Christians were actually watching. We know what the Grammy’s and Hollywood has devolved into, so most don’t bother to watch. Many like me didn’t even know it was on. The music industry is no longer about talent as much as the sideshow, and there isn’t much envelope left to push musically, so today’s artists are using vulgar sexuality, obesity, and images intended to shock people. The problem is most everything has been done already, just better. Want to shock Christians, Sam Smith? Maybe get a time machine and go back and watch the metal band Tool come out and casually thank their ‘lord and savior Satan’ for their award during the 2002 Grammy’s, or watch Christian Bale thank Satan in a 2019 Golden Globes speech. You are late to the party Sam. Less can be more, and less of Sam Smith and sneaky dudes in dresses might actually help restore credibility and an audience to the Grammy’s.
