It wasn’t the 33-couple wedding that made Keith Urban cry during last night’s Grammys– it was Madonna’s voice. The Material Girl sounded just a bit off during her brief version of “Open Your Heart,” but I suppose it wasn’t nearly as bad as Metallica’s horrendous version of “One.” At least we know she wasn’t lip-syncing…
Let’s cleanse our Madonna palates with the original 12″ “Open Your Heart” single, shall we?

eh, she’s never really been much of a singer. she’d do wel to check out the classic Shatner/Rollins duet “I can’t get behind that.”
She really improved after “Evita,” but in recent years she’s taken a few steps back. Still a fine entertainer though– we saw her about a year and a half ago and it was worth every penny. And it cost a LOT of pennies,
