Once again, the Grammy’s are out of touch.
Despite the fact that this is the year of hip hop at the Grammy’s, the voters just don’t seem to get it.
Why do Sting, Aretha Franklin, The Eagles, Bonnie Raitt, Lenny Kravitz, Matchbox Twenty and Tony Bennett get nominated every year that they release new product? These artists are not producing the calibare of music anymore that should be nominated.
How can Johnny Cash not be nominated?
The most ludicrus nominations of the year (other than the artists listed above):
- “Fallen” – Evanescence – Album of the Year – Please.
- “I’m With You” – Avril Lavingne – Song of the Year – The most undeserving nomination of the year.
- Evanescence – New Artist – Where was Jason Mraz?
- “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” – Michael McDonald – Male Pop – NO, NO, NO.
- “Misunderstood” – Bon Jovi – Duo/Group Pop – Where are the boy bands when you need them?
- Any nomination in the Pop Collaboration With Vocals – You’ve got Christina Aguilara and Lil’ Kim along with Bob Dylan and Mavis Staples in the same category. Something is definitely wrong here.
I could go on and on, but I won’t. You get the picture.
The Best Nominations of the Year:
- “Comin’ from Where I’m From” – Anthony Hamilton – R&B Song – Classic old school.
- “Clocks” – Coldplay – Record of the Year – Very, very well crafted pop.
- “Cry Me a River” – Justin Timberlake – Male Pop – Like butta.
- “Easy” – Groove Armada – Dance Song – Fantastically addictive song.
- “Untitled” – Sigur Ros – Alternative Music Album – So incredibly shocked that this was nominated. An exceptional CD.
Who else should have been nominated. David Guetta (Dance), Elvis Costello, Gavin DeGraw, Jason Mraz, Cat Power, Josh Kelly, Junior Senior, The Postal Service, Rufus Wainwright, Seal, & The Thrills.
