Amen brother! Way to put that clown in his place. He wouldn't have to be so rude if he would've spent less time telling the whole world how great he is.

It was typical Vince Gill. He's brilliant with off-the-cuff one-liners.
Everyone gasped.
Kanye laughed.
It was funnier than ..... best laugh of the evening.
Now Usher's remark later "they're all winners, Kanye", seemed like a bit of a dig.

Vince Gills Beatle remark to Kanye West was the highlight of the Grammy's to me. Kanye is so self absorbed it takes away from his music. As far as the remark about getting an award from a Beatle, as a former musician I get the magnatude of the feeling's Vince must have felt.

The best comment of the evening! I guess there really isn't the need to be humble, just self-promoting, in Kanye's eyes. I think Vince Gill's comment was spot-on in regards to what you should be doing: respecting the Grammys, the industry, your peers and your fans.

kanye thinks the world belongs to him, but he found out he was wrong, as herbie hancock beat him.
what a joy to see herbie win the grammy, he deserves it more than kanye will ever.
i'm sorry for kanye's mom passing, but kanye disrespected her memory by trying to turn the night into a memorial service.

3 cheers for herbie hancock....
