I think the nominees are halfway decent this year. I know Arcade Fire won't win, but it'd be pretty awesome if they did. Same goes for Ray LaMontagne.
I bet Lady Antebellum will win,it just fits in with the way they've normally gone in the past...
Haha, Katy Perry for album of the year. Classic.
I looked at all the nominations this morning and the one thing that stood out to me, the clash between what is considered great by many and not popular and the ones that are complete shite but extremely popular. This contradiction has existed for years, but it the gap between the two seems even wider than it has ever been. Sad part is, come grammy night, popularity might win out because its all about ratings. That is why Katy Freekin Perry and Justin Beiber performed and that horrible thing they call a nomination concert!!!
it's nothing new. Look at the nominations in the major categories through the years, and it's full of safe, commercial acts/material a lot times. Nominating acts like Arcade Fire and Eminem shows that there are baby steps being taken in the past 13-14 years or so, but then you get a Katy Perry for Album of the Year? On the flip side, it's not called "Best Album of the Year."
Arcade Fire is going to pull off a Kid A and In Rainbows snob. Can't believe these two album lost their years and i don't even want to see for whom they lost the "award". Give an AM list of best of the year and all time any day over a Grammy and its history of winners.
Also guess who is competing among the five acts for Best New Artist. Florence + The Machine, and...Justin Bieber!
The grammies aren't for music fans. They're for celebrity fans with a passing interest in music.
Why there's something telling me that next year the album of the year will be: Taylor Swift's Speak Now vs. Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Now that's a crazy grammy moment i'd like to watch.
Beyonce: And the Grammy of Album of the Year goes to...Taylor Swift Speak Now
Beyonce: I just like to say that Kanye recorded one of the best albums of ALL TIME. OF ALL TIME!
KW: The Grammy doesn't care about black people!
and then Taylor would write another song about this.
OMG it'd be Wu-Tang is for the kids all over again
If it weren't for Cee-lo and Arcade fire, these nominations would all be horrible. aside from those three, though, I'm throwing up.
The House That Built Me is an awesome song though.
I know it probably won't happen, but Arcade Fire actually does have a chance to win. Even though Emeinem probably will (voters love a comeback.) I'll be forcing my mom to vote for all the right picks though
I also hope AF wins... And i still don't get how Month of May was a single and Sprawl 2 wasn't... It is a hell of a pop song, my favorite vocals from Regine, better than Haiti, In The Back Seat,... I really like the song, the refrain, the way she says mountain beyond mountains and i need the darkness someone please cut the light are amazingly well delivered. sounds like a lost new wave-y Bjork meets Fever Ray track. i love it.
