The Under-est of Underdogs

You didn’t see this on the Grammy telecast last night:

    Perhaps the night’s most astonishing upset came offscreen, in the contemporary soul gospel album category. The practically unknown Eartha, whose album Sidebars had sold a total of 52 units at SoundScan-tracked stores before its nomination, bested more established acts such as BeBe Winans and Fred Hammond. [USA Today]

52 freaking units. Commercial considerations don’t rule that category – someone say hallelujah!
