Still in the early going, the Grammys telecast has a savvy mix of blasphemy and gospel going. Notice how Kid Rock dressed as a parson and sang “Rock and Roll Jesus,” followed (after a palate cleanser of pure spun sugar in Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus) by Jennifer Hudson backed by risers of singers in black robes–looking a bit more like Supreme Court justices than choir members, but we got the point. At this hour Katy Perry is singing “I Kissed a Girl.” Can a country tune mentioning the Good Lord be far behind-oh, nevermind, bingo: it’s the Lord himself, Morgan Freeman.
