That guy's lecture was totally uncalled for.
This is an awards ceremony, not a presidential debate.

Here's a theory...

Album of the Year didn't come last this year. My recollection is that it always comes last.

Why not now?

Because the organizers knew it would cause some level of uproar and thought if they closed the show with a more acceptable/expected win for Keys in Record of the Year it wouldn't leave quite the bad taste in everyone's mouth.

Or maybe because they know U2 will be vindicated in the Record category and finish the show with a win there.

Okay, I'm reaching. LOL

I will be honored. Besides, i'll need some comfort myself. This is ridiculous!

At least Alicia Keys has talent, but O Brother Where Art thou???????? Not even Dylan! That hurts!

I realize that ATYCLB is still a 6x Grammy winning album, with Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Rock Album of the Year, Rock Song of the Year (twice) and Pop Song of the Year. But this makes me all the more upset that it didn't win Album of the Year.

Oh well... I guess sales for "O Brother..." will skyrocket while ATYCLB fades away...

What really bothers me now is that Walk On is going to be the only song that's going to be left without a Grammy and I happen to think it the best of all the others that have won.

Bottom Line is this.

I have lost all respect for the grammys. 'All That You Can't Leave Behind' is the album of the year. If it lost to a viable artist who created a masterpiece, I wouldn't be that upset, but 'Oh Brother Where Art Thou?' I mean....ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? I mean, GRAMMYS, YOU HAVE TO GET THIS ONE RIGHT! YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SYSTEM OF VOTING THAT AWARDS THE ALBUM OF THE YEAR BY EVERYONES STANDARDS THE AWARD. There is simply NO excuse for this.

I'm not a fan of Alicia Keys, but I think she is talented. She impressed me on the Tribute To Heroes with just a piano & voice. I don't think I would buy her record though...

I will be plesantly surprised if WO wins ROTY, but the way things are going, it will probably be that schlock by Train.

It's going to be Fallin, and she's going to get up again and have to walk by U2 again and she's going to look smug again.

Or running away to the southern hemisphere...

And she's been nominated for 7 grammys!!!

And a positive outlook for ATYCLB, its been nominated(including last year) for 11 Grammys. They've won 6 not bad...
Actually, they have been nominated for 10 Grammys but received 11 nominations. they had 2 nominations in one category this year. So really they are 6 for 10 which is even better!

Yes, sweetie, she did. I bet she was dissapointed that U2 was robbed, too.

I hope you're right about Walk On. *crosses fingers*

Album of the year has always been last until this year because it is the top award. Yes I think they moved it because of U2 not winning. No I do not think U2 will eill record of the year. To have 4 songs from one album including BD last year nominated and not win album of the year is a F****** JOKE.

I still can't get over this! If I were an OutKast or bigger Dylan fan, I'd be just as p*ssed as I am now. "O Brother..." winning??!?!?!??!?!?!?!? PLEASE!

Because that's how she's looked for the other awards she's gotten. I'm sorry but that's been my perception.

Did you all see ATYCLB avertized during the break. Someone else thought it would win also.
