Bon Jovi featuring Jennifer Nettles

I'm bored. I mean, er, Jon Bon Jovi is a rock legend and I'm surprised that this is his first-ever Grammy performance. He sounds tight and still looks good in leather pants, but he and Jennifer Nettles (who is one-half of the country duo Sugarland) seem like they're just going through the overemoting, mike-sharing, arena-rock motions on "Who Says You Can't Go Home." The band members must have known they were making that impression, because they immediately use their get-out-of-jail-free card and follow up with "Living on a Prayer."
