    Thoughts: an aging Metallica, while nothing of their former selves, can still be better than all the other metal on the list. I think that says something about today's rock music. :|

    And wait...In Rainbows was 2008?

    It took SEVEN people to write Estelle's song "American Boy."
    .....HAHAHAHAHAH.

    And, let's just be brutally honest. The Jonas Brothers? Really?
    As much as I've explicitly fantasized about the Jonas Brothers, THEIR MUSIC IS NO DICE. Them being nominated for Best New Artist stings. Lady Gaga or Sara Bareilles should be there.

    ...more thoughts/opinions/predictions to come

    Alright, only picked a few



    No one has sold more albums then he did for this album. Do i like him as an artist? No but this album was on point


    Beautiful song. Well written and sung. Love singer/song writers.


    Brilliant song, wouldve gotten my vote for song of the year but 'Im Yours' is just a notch hirer. Again love Singer/Song writers.

    Key word here is 'pop' which is why Jason Mraz doesnt get my vote.
    Also Neyo is just a genius when it comes to writing a hit. The man has wrote a hit record for almost everyone in the industry.

    Always loved this one


    Song has meaning to me, hence why i pick it xD

    Thats my ***** right there...LOVE HER
    And her vocals are AWESOME live, she has a very unique style and i know she will be around for a while.

    If Alicia doesnt win this i will throw a Kanye

    Again the man is unstoppable right now.

    Key word 'performance'. No one can bring a house down like Jigga can.

    Agreed, there are people more deserving for new artist, I can't stand the Jonas Brothers but I have a strong feeling they will win that. Gaga winning it would be ok by me.
