    Get real! Toni Braxton deserved her win for “He Wasn’t Man Enough” as did TLC for “No Scrubs.”

    Sorry, I was real when I said that Toni Braxton did not deserve to win for He Wasn’t Man Enough For Me. I think that she only won because Jill Scott’s Gettin’ In The Way and Erykah Badu’s Bad Lady split the votes.

    Also, Heartbreak Hotel’s vocals stomp all over the vocals on No Scrubs.

    Keith Urban’s win for Sweet Thing over other deserving nominees. I don’t grudge his other wins but Sweet Thing is so luck luster compared to other nominated Country men.

    Brian Setzer Orchestra over Goo Goo Dolls. Iris is an ultimate classic with General Field presence. I dunno how it lose to Brian Setzer? (Maybe splitting the votes with Aerosmith)

    Baha Men over Eiffel 65 or JLo.

    ^^^ Trace Adkins would’ve been my pick over the Keith Urban win. “All I Ask For Anymore” in my opinion is one of Trace’s best songs released to radio. (smiles)

    God bless you and him and Keith always!!!

    I don’t get upset over Grammy wins (at least not anymore), perhaps over some of the people that missed out, but I don’t take the Grammys too seriously as an indicator of great music.

    One example mentioned earlier was Lionel Richie win with ‘Can`t Slow Down’ over ‘Purple Rain’ and ‘Born in the USA’ (also great albums from Tina and Cyndi Lauper).

    But commentators at the time predicted ‘Can`t Slow Down’, as it was the safe choice.

    Richie will win this one, because he has a broad base of support throughout the record industry–from pop to R & B to country.

    Plenty of other ridiculous wins.

    1998 AOTY Bob Dylan win with ‘Time Out of Mind’ over Radiohead ‘OK Computer’ – an example of an overdue win, rather than the best album. See also 2001 where Radiohead lost to an overdue win for Steely Dan and 2009 where they lost again, this time against Grammy favourite Alison Krauss and overdue win for former Led Zeppelin vocalist Robert Plant for ‘Raising Sand’
    2014 The Macklemore wins over Kendrick
    2018 The Bruno Mars 24K Magic sweep

    In the long run, Grammy wins are often a game of name recognition, having a popular song on the radio, releasing in the right year against weak competition, collaborating with the right people, and creating something safe enough to gain a wide cross section of support.

    If all that fails, maybe if you hang around long enough they might reward artists when voters feel they are overdue for a win.

    In the meantime, it can be fun predicting the results.

    It blew me away when I first learned that Robert Plant never got any Grammy awards with his Led Zeppelin friends before singing with Alison and I still can’t believe it when its been 50 years now since his first Led Zeppelin album was released. (shaking my head)

    God bless you and him and his circle of friends always!!!

    she should have swept over 25 and Lemonade for This Is Acting.

    Absolutely NO omg…..

    Sia has great singles ,but her album is more like a collection of her “all-sound-alike” hits.

    Bon Iver: Best New Artist

    I personally think Nicki should’ve won.

    Mariah leaving with 0 awards back in 1996 was also a damn crime.
