    @bangbang: Thats because Beyonce’s dad is on the grammy committee and doesn’t allow anyone with talent or good music…thats why xtina, Britney, Madonna and Mariah Carey NEVER get nominated.

    We all know Bieber will get “Best New Artist” I just hope they take into account the word “Best”

    # 9

    Really? Guess who won’t be watching the Grammys this year…

    @Caitlyn: Keep in mind that when the jo bros were “burning up” the carts Adele took home the award for Best New Artist. I really hope Justin Beiber does not win I will lose my faith in music if that happens.

    Look at this list!!! It’s a damn shame. Sade is ONE OF the only true and reputable artist nominated. The music industry is a zombie.

    Grammies has gone to the dogs! It use to be the only award ceremony that nominated people with true talent. Those days are clearly beyond us.

    I really have a lot of respect for Justin Bieber, & I wish others could have some too. He was a kid, still a kid in his teens, wanted to live his dream, and is doing that now. He obviously has talent. Just watch his old youtube videos. The kid has mad vocals, even if his voice is changing now. Artists such as Katy Perry are just obsessed with making things LOOK good- lots of bright colors, lots of dancers, she’s even gorgeous, but when you listen to her sing, it’s not good and always off pitch. That’s the problem these days, everything is adjusted to look awesome and produced with autotune. When someone sings live, it’s a mess. I pray for the revival of the music industry. Bring back Brit, Madonna, Mariah, Backstreet Boys, etc. But Bieber, he’s good.

    Umm where is Bad Romance or any Gaga Song for Record or Song of the Year?

    Umm where is Bad Romance or any Gaga Song for Record or Song of the Year?

    If Justin Bieber wins a Grammy I will lose all respect I have for the music industry.

    Gaga for Album of the year???How many times can you get nominated for the same Cd?Christina and Pink got Snubbed.Beyonce again with Halo???

    Bruno and Gaga
    yesss!!!!

    I was glad to see who was nominated in the Best Rap Album because it included real rappers that talked about more than just shaking your a**, doing drugs, and f**king, but I was disappointed to see that there was no Best Female Contemporary R&B album because Monica should have definitely been in there. There aren’t really any real R&B singers left but the category should’ve included Erykah Badu, Monica, Janelle Monae, and Jasmine Sullivan if she made the cut off.

    How the hell did Katy Perry get nominated for Album of the Year? I can see Best Pop Collaboration (which was not a category), but Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals? Katy is a god awful singer. I can’t believe how horrible she sounds live. Maybe they were judging on her studio fixed vocals. Besides that, I’m glad to see that the bubblegum artists such as Rihanna, Justin Beiber, Lady Gaga, and even Katy Perry had very few nominations. It seems like the Grammys decided to nominate the more talented people who we barely hear of. With that said, I’m also surprised they didn’t nominate Kesha. She sucks big time but it would make sense for them to put “Tik Tok” in the categories Song of the Year and record of the Year since it made history and became the catchiest song of this year.

    Justin Beaver got nominated for the Best New Artist?! Grammy are just wayyyyyyyyyy corrupted…
    And where’s Adam Lambert? He wasn’t there last year, and they wouldn’t let him in this year?

    @21 LAMBERT GOT NOMINATED FOR BEST MALE VOCAL

    CHECK OUT THE FULL LIST : ]

    KINGS OF LEON OOME AROND SUNDOWN IS THE BEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR..BY FARRRRRRRRR….WELL MAYBE IS GOING TO BE NOMINATED NEXT YEAR THEY JUST RELEASED IT..THEY ARE THE BEST..WOW THIS YEAR NOMINATIONS SUCK..

    @Simon:
    It’s a relief to know that, thx.
    But considering he has to at least beat MJ and Bruno to get the award, I would say it’s a slim chance… : (
    And I’d say his album is wayyyyyyyyyy better than Teenage Dream or some crappy My World 2.0…….. Grammy just doesn’t like him…

    hahahaahhaahaha…i am flored…..yeah The only ones that deserve consideration are KINGS OF LEON and Arcade Fire but Arcade are somewhat pretentious and to obnoxious. i can’t handle an entire live show of theirs and they are a bit boring to..to much going on ..but they are good no matter what….Katty PERRY HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
