In Case You Missed It

In case you missed it, here is a clip of M.I.A.'s performance at the Grammys from earlier tonight.

M.I.A. performed "Swagger Like Us" with Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, and T.I. The attention was clearly on the four men - who Queen Latifah described as the "rap pack" - but M.I.A. still held her own. She was wearing some black and white polka dot maternity number that made her look like a Minnie Mouse balloon. The majority of the performance was broadcast in black and white, as if visually inserting M.I.A. and her comrades into musical tradition.

To think less than a year ago we shared a stage in ACDC with her...
