    let’s pretend you have to ability to create some new categories for the Grammys, what categories would you make?

    Me, I would make a Best Adult Contemporary Album category. This would be for albums from artists like Adele and John Mayer who most wouldn’t define as “pop” artist, but don’t really belong in another category. The Pop Vocal Album category would be for artist like Gaga, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, etc. as their music fits into the “pop” sound more.

    Also I would make a Best Hip-Hop Instrumental Track/recording. This would obviously be for instrumental hip-hop tracks that don’t contain any vocals.

    Alternative song and performance. If there’s enough to have an album category every year, there’s not a good excuse for not adding these categories.

    I would have the country category be the way that it used be by having the collaboration and instrumental categories be reinstated as well as having the male and female solo performances be separate like they used to be too.

    God bless you always!!!

    Less is more. I think they should have even less get rid of solo and group performance and just have one performance Grammy.

    I find it kind of strange that Rap, R&B and Rock only have one performance Grammy, but Pop and Country have duo/group categories.

    i think they should have stuck with the original categories they had before renaming everything with the male and female performances seperate as well as the group and collaboration performances.

    If anything they should merge the Pop album category with the Pop tradictional album category. Pop traditional is just an excuse to give a Grammy to Tony Bennet every year. It’s ridiculous.

    They should also merge Best R&B performance and Best Traditional R&B performance.
    I understand that R&B album and Urban contemporary are 2 separate categories to avoid fiascos like Chris Brown winning R&B album.

    They roughly need to get rid of 25% of Grammy awards. They need to be hard to get like a Oscar.

    ^^^ Some people may say that they are hard to get already. Country singers Martina McBride, Toby Keith, and Kenny Chesney have been around for more than 20 years now and they still have yet to score their first one. It took country band Diamond Rio 20 years exactly to get the only one that they currently have.

    God bless you and these four wonderful country acts always!!!

    They need to split the performance categories back by gender. Grammys are hard cause voters are lazy. They keep throwing them at Jay-Z, Kanye, Alison, Beyonce, Aretha, Mary, etc. Nas still has no Grammy.

    I agree to split the categories back to gender because combining some of the categories (ex. Pop Solo)  is not working, in addition to keeping the group and collaboration performances seperate.

    It makes no sense to put collaborations and group performances (ex: Pop Duo/Group)  in the same category. Lastly, some of the same people keep winning all the time because the voters like to kiss butt to their favorites and afraid to go with something a little different from their routine.
