It's also possibly the deadliest category to win in. I've been predicting that the talented but currently overexposed Feist would sadly become the next Norah Jones. A best new artist grammy would seal the deal.

Two Prog artists got nominations this year!

Rush for best rock instrumental and Porcupine Tree for best surround sound album. It isn't much, but at least its something! They are 2 of my favorite groups of all time so congrats to them!

You mean you didn't boycott after "My Humps" won a grammy last year?

I'm still not over that one .


I really liked "Back to Black" and thought it was a great album, but who knows what condition she'll be in if she even attends. I hope she does attend, I love a good trainwreck

So a record is only worthwhile to be nominated when it has sold a lot of records?
I haven't heard the Foo Fighters record, so I can't comment on its quality, but the above statement is a bit confusing to me. Often we accuse the Grammys of only nominating well-selling records. And apparently, when they do pick a record that hasn't sold that well, we accuse them of nominating poor-selling records.

Windows In The Skies is a good song. Better than the other ones nominated. It deserves to win.
Now, Instant Karma on the other hand...

Same here. Falling Slowly was the new song that moved me the most this past year.
(although I have to say I prefer the version as done by The Frames)

Seriously? Hey There Delilah is absolute crap. WITS may not be genius, but it's a good song.

I'm so glad to see Eddie Vedder nominated. That entire soundtrack is so amazing! I'm not sure how they picked that song over a few others that are, imo, brilliant. But i will root for Eddie all the way!

Amy Winehouse will probably win several of her categories. It's just too bad she might not even be there to accept. She is in such bad shape these days, I would be surprised if she could clean herself up in time to make a respectable appearance.
