I wonder if the album of the year winners will be pwerforming in the all star line up at the end. No Way.

I am taking this personnel. This is more a slap to us fans then U2. I can't get over this.

Where is the protest potition?

Sorry all I can't spell tonight I just got back from FL. 7:30 my plane landed and I drove like a bat out of H*** to get home in time to catch U2. Had way to many beers. Greate Vacation. What a bad ending tonight. I think I will go cry

I agree, while we're waiting, I'm just listening to some Metallica to let off some steam.

Regardless of how the Grammys go down, in our hearts and minds, ATYCLB is the TRUE album of the year.

I would go to bed then, there is no way they will win record of the year.

I dont know which is worse, the Achtung Baby screwing or this one. I honestly think this one. There was a reason for AB, the Eric Clapton sympathy wave. This year it is just embarrassing, O Brother Where...... What a crock of shit. I think you guys are right about album of the year moving up in the show, it usually is last. I think the Grammy's are expecting some backlash for their album of the year winner.

Opening the show performing WO, then closing by winning ROTY for it would be cool...

It would also be a long shot I think. Even though the album is big, the song didn't get much airplay.

I have no more nails to be bitten...Walk On deserves this award. They would have won Record of the Year twice in a row then.

Yes, this is clearly worse than the Clapton dicking. Clapton obviously had the sympathy wave with him, but he also had a song ("Tears in Heaven") that was a huge hit. O Brother has neither.

Sorry, U2 will not win Record of the Year - rarely have the Song and Record of the Year been different. Keys will win.

I agree. "Tears in Heaven" was a good song.

might as well jump on the bandwagon and express my feelings:

Then again, if O Brother and Steely Dan can win albums of the year, anything is possible. Just not likely. Walk On is not the record of the year but apparantly the artist that deserves to win typically doesnt at the Grammy's.

I think Larry had the right idea in 1993. U2 needs to skip this bullshit from now on. If they put out an album this year and it gets nominated they need to skip next years awards.

As much as I hate to admit it, you're probably right, which is another case of the better song getting robbed, which is a shame, considering that "Walk On" has a LOT more social relevance.

I agree. This is a joke. They all are a joke.
