Mike Opelka explains what it's like to be press at the Grammy's. He states that it's not as glamorous as you would think as the press gets placed in a basement to watch the show from a television screen. He feels if you're going to an awards ceremony and you're nominated that it would be torture, if you're a presenter that might be okay but it's still work, and if you're a reporter — then it's a pain in the butt. Mike doesn't watch them anymore because of how self–gratulatory in nature it has become.
