2. I doubt this has anything to due with Puritans, they do NOT want anything to upstage the show

Remember we are taking about the Grammys, what true Puritans would look down on, these performers view as day to day wear.

What the writers of the memo is trying to avoid is anything worn by the guests that would upstage what is presented on the stage, for anything that upstage the stage hurts they pocket book.

5. Now watch them design to show maximum flesh and still stay within the rules. It will be a contest

to see who can get raunchiest. Bet we end seeing a lot of pasties and panties.
