While it may be uncool to admit it, we’re pretty excited for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, which will air Sunday night on CBS. Performers range from gods of classic rock (Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger) to indie superstars (Janelle Monáe, Arcade Fire) to some actually interesting pop stars (Lady Gaga, Rihanna). And if those don’t get you going, how about the sheer spectacle of Cee Lo doing “Fuck You” with Gwyneth Paltrow and the Muppets?
For those of you who need even more encouragement to watch the awards — or would like to add an extra bit of fun to your viewing party — Flavorpill gives you our official 2011 Grammys drinking game. Enjoy at your own risk.
