I have a soft spot for Eminem. I have liked him since his Slim Shady days, and I'm glad Relapse won Best Rap Album this year. But there are too many things going on in this rendition of "Forever," and though Eminem slam-dunks his double-timed raps, the sound keeps dropping on CBS's broadcast, so I can hear only half of the song. I have no idea what Drake is doing. I hope Lil Wayne is having fun; the rapper will report to prison on Feb. 9 for what will likely be a one-year sentence related to gun charges.
Grade: C- for the performance; F for the CBS live feed
