The Grammys has over 100 categories it honors. Country is still one of the biggest genres in music, so it would be totally ridiculous for them to leave it out.

I have the tv muted. I'm watching the Grammys very selectively.

But yes, most of today's country=shit. i.e. Brad Paisley.
Good list, but you probably shoulda stopped at Loretta Lynn.

Way to go, Kanye, for telling them to turn the music off. He's matured a lot--let the guy make his speech.

I agree, they let Alicia Keys drone on and on until I wanted to throw something at my TV,, and I love me some Alicia. Yet, they started cutting Kanye off early. Totally not fair. They didn't start playing that music during anyone else's speech. This is the first time I've seen him talk about being the best and not come off as an arrogant ass. He seemed to be more poking fun at that rep.

Kanye has an ego the size of the universe, but you know what? The man can back it up!!!

If he doesn't win Album of the Year, he'll be like the Michelle Kwan of the Grammies...standing on the sidelines, watching U2/Amy/I forgot the other act he lost to winning the Big One and wondering what more he has to do to get it the next time!

I know! The guy wanted to say something about his mom, who just died not long ago for Pete's sake! Let him talk.

I can't believe he said it's cool if Amy wins Best Album instead of him. I guess he has learned a little humility over the past few years.

I still think Amy deserves Album of the Year ahead of anyone else, but I'm glad Kanye won Rap Album. "Graduation" is brilliant. And U2 definitely deserved Album of the Year over him and any other nominee 2 years ago. I wasn't even a fan then, but I still thought they should win.

And Aretha...
