    Since the What If topics were set up in the Oscar and Emmy categories, that  I would set up one in the Grammy topic.

    What if Jennifer Lopez’s Waiting for Tonight were nominated in Dance single in 2001 instead of 2000?  Would she have been able to beat Who Let The Dogs Out.

    It’s so hard to do what-ifs with the Grammys because 1) it’s less prestigeous 2) there’s no one trend (critical acclaim, commercial success, etc.) with certain artists and/or category but I guess it can work regardless. 

    As for your question: No? I thought Who Let the Dogs Out was pretty huge during that time. 

    What if Amy Winehouse was nominated in 2009? Would she have won over Adele’s Chasing Pavement?

    What if Miranda Lambert took Lady Antebellum’s spot in Album and Record, would she have won in one or both?

    Amy would have thrown Adele under the bus for sure. Its hard to say if she would have beaten respected, overdue veterans like Alison and Robert Plant.

    Yes Miranda would have won album, but LA’s record was huge so they still would’ve taken it.

    What if Madonna submitted “Music” to Dance Recording and not Pop Female in 2000. Would she have won there? (She was a ROTY nominee there.)

    What if Kylie submitted “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” to Dance Recording and not “Love At First Sight” in 2002. Would she have beaten Dirty Vegas?

    Music would have won Dance Recording.

    It would have been quite close if Kylie submitted Can’t Get You Out Of My Head in Dance because Days Go By was all over tv thanks to the commercial.  I think that Kylie would have pulled it off.

    What if Macy Gray released I Try as her first single in 1999 instead of Do Something?  Would she have won Best New Artist?

    “Music” would NOT have won over “Who Let The Dogs Out” in Best Dance Recording.  The latter was too big and popular to ignore.

    Macy Gray would have still lost Best New Artist to Christina Aguilera, even if “I Try” were released earlier.

    I always wondered how Christina Aguilera managed to beat Macy Gray for Best New Artist. I didn’t realize that “I Try” wasn’t released as a single until voting was all over. I think if it had been a hit before voting, Gray would have won.

    If Lady Gaga would have been eligible for Best New Artist in 2010, would she have won? (the nominees were Zac Brown Band, Keri Hilson, MGMT, Silversun Pickups and The Ting Tings, with Zac Brown Band winning).

    “Music” was a WAY bigger hit than “Who Let The Dogs Out,” though.

    And Christina lost to Macy Gray in Pop Female, so who’s to say had “I Try” been released earlier, Macy Gray wouldn’t have won Best New Artist?

    What if the album categories for each genre existed in the 80s and early 90s? 

    Who would have been winners?  I think that the Whitney album would have won Pop Album in 1988 and Toni Braxton would have won R&B Album for her debut in 1994.  Mariah Carey’s and Wilson Phillips’ debut would have fought it out with Phil Collins’ ..But Seriously Album for Pop Album in 1991.
