    Sade. Not only was she/they were the best choice in their given year, but they could still put out successful and critically acclaimed material now. Sade wins this one easily.

    Sade is by far my favorite here, it’s not even close (no, not even Cyndi).

    Culture Club (Still LOVE “Time,” “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me,” and “Miss Me Blind.”)  

    Follwed by Cyndi Lauper and Sade.

    The fact that Whitney Houston never won Best New Artist ….

    Out of this list Sade is most deserving.

    Even though her career was short, I’m still a big fan of Jody Watley.

    Obviously, I’m not too familiar with this decade (I have no idea who Jody Watley is…at least from her name).

    But, I voted for Sade. I also really love Tracy Chapman, Cyndi Lauper, and “Arthur’s Theme” is a really nice song.

    Obviously, I’m not too familiar with this decade (I have no idea who Jody Watley is…at least from her name).

    Guess I’m going to have to read those credentials

    1. Jody Watley started off as a dancer on Soul Train
    2. She was a member of the successful R&B trio Shalamar
    3. As a solo artist, Jody had several top 10 Pop hits, 2 R&B #1’s, and 7 #1 Dance Singles
    4. She was one of the few African American artists to receive heavy rotation on MTV. In fact, she is one of the most nominated female artists at the VMAS.
    5. Her style became iconic and immulated by girls across the nation
    6. She was one of the first artists to feature rappers on her songs at the beginning of the Pop/R&B/Hip-Hop collabo crossover genre
    7. She’s won several Lifetime Achievement Awards for her musical achievements
    8. People magazine named her one of the most beautiful people in the world
    9. Jody was not the favorite to win BNA in 1988
    10. She was referenced on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air

    Now get into her mug…..

    The fact that Whitney Houston never won Best New Artist ….

    Whitney Houston was deemed ineligible for Best New Artist since she was featured on that duet with Teddy Pendergrass.  How dumb was that rule? 
     

    Jody was not the favorite to win BNA in 1988

    I thought Jody Watley was the frontrunner that year.  Who was the favorite to win?  Terence Trent D’Arby?

    Paul Grein predicted Jody Watley, but several other pundits predicted a Terence Trent D’Arby win. Jody herself said that she thought D’Arby would win.

    Three things from this decade: The two most successful female singers of the decade were not nominated (Madonna and Whitney Houston). In 1989 Millie Vanilly was the worst possible choice and they still won over Soul II Soul (whom should have won), Enya, Indigo Girls, Neneh Cherry and the Traveling Wilburys. Finally where are those great winners like Cristopher Cross?

    Overall this is a great list of winners.

    The obvious standouts are Sade, Cyndi and Tracey but my vote goes to Culture Club who are my favourite musical act of all time.

    Nice work Grammy voters.
