Katy Perry nominated for Album of the Year. Are you fucking kidding me? At least Arcade Fire were nominated.

The nominees for best Alt album are actually pretty good.

Would love to see Fuck You win Song of the Year.

Does anyone know who exactly votes on these nominations? It seems as though it must be record company lobbyists or something.

This is the most obvious attempt at playing to all fields . Pop-obsessed, mainstream indie hipsters (yes, thanks to bands like AF there is such a demographic), tweens, older listeners, radio country devotees (though I heard even hip-hop fans, etc., it really comes off as a desperate plea for relevancy, but I gotta say I'm kind of pleasantly surprised that they'd nominate The Black Keys.

Isn't Lady Antebellum's album supposed to be terrible? I'm thinking it got nominated simply because it is one of the few commercial smashes in these piracy-plagued times.

wow, i really do live under a rock far away from the mainstream. i have never heard or heard of any of those songs.

same goes for roughly 95% (because they're pretty much all the same 15 bands/artists in every single category. nice variety...not that i'd really expect anything more from that stupid award show) of the other nominees.



what year did they do the london calling tribute thing? cos i think that was the last time i gave a shit about the grammys. ah, to be young and stupid again!



so curiosity got the best of me, and i went to youtube to hear some of this stuff. pretty sure cee lo green just secured himself a spot on my ever-changing list of top 5 worst songs i've ever heard in my life at #3, right behind paper planes and bad romance.

A pretty good guess, I'd say. That's what I've heard, too, the group's too "commercial" now and stuff ("Need You Now" had the crap played out of it here in town ALL summer, swear to God. And I heard it a million times when I lived in South Dakota before that). Not knowing squat about Lady Antebellum outside of the couple hits of theirs that came out this year, I can't compare old stuff to new stuff, but meh, sounds like the same complaint every band goes through.

Anywho...wow, some stuff I like in the nominee lists this year! Guess I'll have to watch the show, then . Pleasant surprise to see Muse get some attention, I'll ditto the sentiment that they win at least one thing they're up for, if not more . Otherwise, seems like the typical "Hey, this song was big on the radio/this artist got talked about a lot, so let's put them as a nominee!" setup.

I don't recall seeing U2 listed anywhere in the nominee lists. I think that has to be a first .

Quote:
Best New Artist:
Justin Bieber
Drake
Florence & The Machine
Mumford & Suns
Esperanza Spalding
... I love how this category is always such a random jumble of artists (who on earth is Esperanza Spalding? I mean, hey, if they're a good artist, cool, just...not exactly a household name). I'll likely be rooting for Florence & The Machine here (I've only heard one Mumford & Suns song. But I rather liked it).

As for Bieber, meh. He's there. I'm not 12 years old, so of course he's not going to appeal to me. He's like any other teen pop fad, so I don't get too bothered by the freakout over him.
