And The Grammy Goes ‘Through’

I’ve never been this frustrated with the Grammy nominees. This has got to be the most Pop Grammy has been. Three of the four major awards are crowded by the Pop Females of 2009. Unlike in the previous years, the Grammys had honored the not-so-mainstream ones, the should’ve-been-discovered hits by the popular (Coldplay), legendary (U2), alternative (Shawn Colvin), and the controversials-bordering-one-hit-wonder-ness (Amy Winehouse).

If I were to play the Grammy Academy, this is how the list would turn out. Without biases,

MY GRAMMY GOES TO…

RECORD OF THE YEAR

The infectious beat wins them the Grammy. Woohoo.

Producers: David Guetta & Frederick Riesterer

Mixers: will.i.am, Dylan “3-D” Dresdow & Padraic “Padlock” Kerin

SONG OF THE YEAR

“I’ve been roaming around, always looking down at all I see.”

Songwriters: The Followill Brothers (Kings Of Leon)

BEST NEW ARTIST

THE TING TINGS

British duo who released their debut album in 2008 which featured TV show favorites like, That’s Not My Name, Shut Up And Let Me Go, Be The One, and Great DJ, which was used on the trailer of the Oscar-winning film, Slumdog Millionaire.

ALBUM OF THE YEAR

A double-disc album, seven tracks released, the birth of her alter-ego, Sasha Fierce, consistent Video of the Year-winning single, Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It). You may say it’s a blatant campaign for Album Of The Year, I say, it worked.

Beyonce has won a number of Grammys for her earlier single Crazy In Love and album Dangerously In Love, but she’s never had an Album Of The Year major nod.

MINOR/ CATEGORY AWARDS:

Best Female Pop Vocals: PINK – Sober (former winner in the Pop and Rock categories)

Best Male Pop Vocals: JOHN LEGEND – This Time (former Best New Artist winner)

Best Dance Recording: BOOM BOOM POW – The Black Eyed Peas

Best Electronic/ Dance Album: ONE LOVE – David Guetta

Best Rock Performance by a Group: USE SOMEBODY – Kings Of Leon

Best Rock Solo Vocal Performance – BOB DYLAN – Beyond Here Lies Nothin

Best Alternative Music Album – WOLFGANG AMADEUS PHOENIX – Phoenix

and the rest, well, let them decide.

I’m out of here.

I’m bitter about The Killer’s Day & Age being snubbed.
