The Grammy Awards are so utterly lame. Who cares about who wins?

They awarded the Best Vocal Performance to Milli Vanilli, a vocal group that couldn't even sing. A how about that unforgettable moment when Jethro Tull won the Grammy for Best Heavy Metal Performance? Lenny Kravitz has won the best male rock performance more times than any other rock singer in history... huh???

Bob Dylan never won a single Grammy award until 1979 when he was 10 years past his prime as a writer and performer.

Elvis Costello has never won a single Grammy for any of his solo albums or his work with the Attractions. Costello's only Grammy win ( only nominated twice in 35 years!) was for a song he collaborated with Burt Bacahrach on from Painted From Memory. I'll bet you can even name the song.

WTF! Do all of those industry types on the nominating committee even bother to listen to performers they nominate?

Knowing that Lil Wayne got a piece in every rap grammy except for the one that involved singing is enough for most people to steer clear in the future, I hope. The Grammy's need to DIE

The grammys are a joke anyways...Does winning a grammy actually mean ANYTHING?! (ok, you're record sales might go up a bit, but that's about it)
I don't think I've ever listened to any artist based on the number of 'grammys' they've won. Many around the world might follow it, but then again, the last thing I'd care about is that. Music is more of a personal preference for me. I don't need some stupid award ceremony to tell me whats good and whats not.

Yes, most of the choices are crap, but I'm still very happy to see The Mars Volta win. Very well deserved.

I heard at school that MIA deserved Album of the Year... besides being amused that they hadn't even considered In Rainbows, I was curious who this person was. Are they worth checking out?

The only reason I cared this year is because 2 of my fav bands were playing and nominated, Radiohead and Coldplay. But since Radiohead was fucked over quite abit last night it's the last time I'll ever watch.
