#WhatsUpWithThat: Grammys cut away from final music performance for a Delta commercial

Heckuva job, CBS. After hyping the final music performance at the Grammys by Nine-Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age, Dave Grohl, and Lindsey Buckingham, the network cut away to cram in some last-minute advertising time. Goodbye, rock. Hello, Delta.

Some viewers believe the cutaway was to prevent some same-sex kissing from airing.

But CBS has pulled the end-of-show cutaways before. It’s all about the Benjamins. See: last year.

Will Bob Costas freak out about this US figure skater’s gun holster? [pics]

It’s possible NBC sportscaster Bob Costas will have his one good eye on other things — like noted peacemaker Vladimir Putin — but you just know he’ll be itching to weigh in on this costume worn by pairs figure skater Simon Shnapir.

Why is he wearing a gun holster? Um … because the routine had a James Bond theme. Here are a few pics from the official U.S. Figure Skating Twitter account.

Sigh:

Shnapir and his pairs partner, Marissa Castelli, skated to music from “Skyfall” when they earned the pairs title at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in January. And yes, he was wearing one of those oh-so-horrifying holsters.
