And The Nominees Are ...

The nominees of the 51st Annual Grammy Awards was announced Wednesday night. After looking through all 110 categories, there were some albums that were overlooked in certain categories (Metallica's Death Magnetic - Album of the Year). And some albums that were overlooked entirely (Neil Diamond, Black Crowes, R.E.M.). While the Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance Category has no losers (John Mayer, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, Neil Young), the Best New Artist Category has no real winner. The Jonas Brothers already won. They've made more money than everybody else in that category combined. I especially enjoy seeing the elder statesmen like Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young and James Taylor competing against newer acts like Kings of Leon and even Radiohead. But no matter who wins the Grammy Award, if your album gets nominated for a Grammy, then you are almost guaranteed to double the sales of that album.
