    I have no idea why Back at One wasn’t nominated for Best R&B Song. It was a #2 hit, after all.

    Honey, Brian McKnight should’ve won for the gorgeous “Anytime.”  He faced stiff competition too.

    He should record another solid R&B album. If Maxwell done it, Brian can do it. It’s never too late.

    Brian McKnight should have been nominated for his debut and won R&B Male in 1993.

    Brian McKnight should have one at least one of his pop male or R&B male nominations.

    What an amazing year for this category! Honestly any of them would have been worthy. Probably would have voted for Maxwell though.

    In general, yes, Brian McKnight deserves at least A Grammy! I was hoping to see him nominated this year in Traditional R&B Performance or the previous year in R&B Album, but alas, he was snubbed.

    Maybe be needs to collaborate with a newer R&B Grammy favorite… someone like PJ Morton or Layla Hathaway in order to get his Grammy due.

    This should have been Musiq’s award. But I like Usher’s win

    Eagle Eye Cherry is the brother of Neneh Cherry of Buffalo Stance fame

    I like “Save Tonight” way too much (and it’s such a big part of my childhood and growth as a fan of music) to say I’d support Brian over everyone else, but I wouldn’t have minded him winning, either. (“My Father’s Eyes” is good, too, though, so I’m not really complaining here — it’s a tough call.)
