Fashion Rocks

I went to the Conde Nast Fashion Rocks show last night at Radio City Music Hall. There was a nice tribute for Etta James. She waved to the audience but unfortunately she didn't sing. Instead, Beyonce, in a Blonde wig and Blonde dress, gamely covered her best known song "At Last". Covers seemed to be the theme of the night. I'm not sure what that has to say about the current state of pop music that at least half of the songs performed were covers! Fergy covered Blondie's "Call Me" and was joined by Debbie Harry who got a standing Ovation. The strongest act of the night, without a doubt, was The Black Eyed Peas doing their cover of "Miss You" by the Rolling Stones. I also thought Duffy and Mary J. Blige were great. Blige sang a song with Kid Rock, who later did his cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and made him sound like a chump. It was a real Donovan and Dylan kind of moment where it was sooo clear that she has a great voice and real stage presence and Kid Rock has.....a nice hat.
