Considering the circumstances surrounding last year's show, it's understandable!
Despite it being Justin Timberlake's highly anticipated return to the Grammys stage and CRAZY collaboration performances including an Elton John & Ed Sheeran duet and a Rihanna/Sting/Bruno Mars tribute to Bob Marley…
The 55th Grammy awards were DOWN 27% in ratings compared to last year's somber event, which took place the DAY after Whitney Houston's tragic death. The 54th Annual Grammys drew in almost 39 million viewers.
BUT it's not ALL bad news!
The Grammys DID manage to score the TOP ratings Sunday night, garnering 28.1 million viewers!!!
Not too shabby, CBS!

She showed her support by attending the court hearing that was a result of him beating her down in 2009.
Is it really a shocker that she'd attend the Grammys on his arm, despite it essentially being the four-year anniversary of the vicious assault?
Apparently, that's just how much Rihanna doesn't give a f-ck, as sources close to the singer say that Chris Brown has agreed to be her date to the award ceremony tomorrow night, held at the Staples Center in El Lay!
What else does the pop sensation not give a f-ck about, you may wonder?
Why, the recent wardrobe advisory sent out to all the attending starlets to refrain from wearing provocative clothing down the red carpet, of course!
Insiders close to the pair reveal:
Ummm, yes please!!
While it seems JUST TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, the one-night-only collaboration was confirmed by the Recording Academy itself!!!
On its official Twitter page, The Grammys tweeted:
— The GRAMMYs (@TheGRAMMYs) February 4, 2013
Whatever happens, we'll bet a standing ovation is in their future!
Can we please make Sunday come sooner?!!

Time for some inspiration!!
America has been devastated by the horrifying destruction of Hurricane Sandy, but like we always do — when times are rough, we stick together!
And to amplify support for the East Coast, Christina Aguilera, Aerosmith, Mary J. Blige, Jon Bon Jovi, Sting, Billy Joel, and Bruce Springsteen joined forces to perform during NBC's Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together relief concert.
Using her golden vocal chords, Xtina opened the night with that career-cementing anthem of hers — Beautiful.
Telling viewers "we'll do whatever we can to help, because every single one of you matters," the Lotus lady did all she could to lift spirits.
Ch-ch-check her out (above)!
And after that, make sure you watch the rest of Friday night's inspiring performances …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
