    Joss Stone can sing the crap out of any of those blond girl singers out now.

    And Melissa Etheridge is a little alarming when bald, but considering it probably wasn't her choice, it's a brave move.

    I'm boycotting.

    Once I saw that something as obvious as Brian Wilson's - Smile was left out of the Album of the Year category, I realized that Grammy will never get it right. Ever. Even when it's obvious. Even if he lost to Ray Charles, I'd understand --- but to not nominate a brilliant piece of pop history for Album of the Year, knowing the story behind the man and that piece of music --- it's ludicrous. Ludicrous.

    I saw pictures of Melissa arriving. Bravo to her!! I've been following that woman since practically her bar days here in Long Beach in the late 80's. I hope she kicks the crap out of her breast cancer!!! :up:

    I'm a big Joss Stone, fan, too.

    Alas, I'm on the west coast and it doesn't start for another 50 minutes here. I'm TiVoing, of course, so I can skip through most of it. I hear U2's performance was great - can't wait for that one. Otherwise, there's not too much I care about with the Grammys - it ceased to be relevant for me long ago.

    Kanye West had a pretty good performance, too. I'm mostly just watching it because there's nothing else on and I was doing some work and didn't want to sit down and actually watch something.

    Man, I missed the U2 performance.. Must have been on in the early part of the show. I didn't get home until 8:00 PM. (Not TiVo'ing it)

    Nope. I always get the impression that the voting process looks something like the draft picks for the NFL between all the big name record companies.

    Sony: "OK, You can have best new artist, but we best R&B album"
    Universal: "Deal."

    so why is that Goth girl giving the country female award ? She looks AWFUL in HD.

    Nice to see Loretta Lynn win and walk up w/ Jack White.

    Speaking of not looking good...a buzz cut is not the most appealing on the unappealing Rob Thomas.

    U2 Preformed?? Hmm. I missed the only decent part I guess. I didn't watch it.

    I was not impressed with this years list of nominees, only three really stood out for me (Virtigo, Lets Get It Started [spike someone mix], Boulivard of broken dreams).

    Jack White of the White Stripes produced Loretta Lynn's Van Lear Rose, and it's excellent.

    Why give Ray Charles all these nominations? Did he come out with anything new? He's dead.

    OK, I just want to make sure that I got this right. According to CNN, the Best New Artist award was given to Maroon 5 for their 'Songs About Jane' record that was first released in 2002, but "didn't catch fire until last year". :rolleyes:

    CNN also did a poll this evening asking if you would purchase a record based up it winning a Grammy. At last look, 91% of the people that voted said, "No." That tells you how messed up the Grammys are...I'm glad to see that people have more sense than to trust them to tell them what good music is out there.

    By the way, Kanye West should have won Best New Artist out of the nominees...no question about it.

    Well, the two categories that matter to me - Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album and Best Rock Gospel Album - were both robbed. Nothing against Third Day's Wire or SCC's All Things New - both were good albums in their own rights, and I've seen the tour for ATN twice now. They just weren't nearly the best in that category. Jars of Clay's Who We Are Instead and Skillet's Collide were far better albums, in my opinion.

    I think it was just a case of Grammy voters picking the only name that they recognized, not actually picking an album that merited the award.

    The show is surprisingly quite good this year.
