Can someone explain to me why she's a big deal? I couldn't make it through Video Games....

I feel like the powers that be (whatever that means) keep trying to push this girl as the next big thing and I'm not sure why. :confused:

She has an excellent PR machine thats for sure.

I kinda like Radio. :o But yeah.

Best New Artist could actually be possible though. Heck, even Alt Nation on Sirius plays her...

Oh, and why wasn't Florence + the Machine nominated for ANYTHING?! I was shocked when I read all the noms and didn't see her name. I really like "Shake It Out".

I think that her album was released after the deadline. I hope Florence wins big next year. "Ceremonials" as a whole, is brilliant. Shake It Out, Breaking Down and All This and Heaven Too are my favorites.

I'm so glad they ended the show with Sir Paul, to wipe out the Minaj travesty.

I was so exited that my favorite new artist, Jamie Grace, was nominated for Best Christian song for "Hold Me" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISgr8SgCYbY)! She didn't win :( but her album is FABULOUS!! Very happy she got a nom!

Ceremonials wasn't eligible for album nominations because it didn't come out until October. Eligible albums had to come out before Sept. 30, 2011. I'm not sure if Shake it Out was eligible. It was released over the internet in September, but I'm not sure it was generally available for sale until October, which would make it eligible for next year.

It's similar to Adele winning this year for Rolling in the Deep, which was released in November 2010, after the eligibility period for the 2011 Grammys.

Oh, thank Heavens! That's what I was hoping happened. Florence should dominate next year like Adele did this! Looking forward to it already :)

And once again, classical music gets the shaft on the broadcast.

Has it ever NOT gotten the shaft? I can't ever remember it being featured on the Grammys. Although, granted, I don't watch them often.

From your fingers to the Grammy voters' ears! If there's any fairness in the world, it should.

On another note, what's with the Brits producing all the great female singers these days? Amy Winehouse (RIP), Adele, Florence Welch, Rumer...

I hope they remember her, old as the album will be by Feb 2013. ITA that Ceremonials is brilliant and I'll happily listen to it the whole way through.

Oleada - Brits just know how to make great music in general. :) All the females does seem new though.

That's what I worry about - it was released pretty early in the eligibility period. However, it's doing very well...though, it's not as mainstream as Adele.

Loved that Adele won pretty much every category, but I was hoping Mumford & Sons would snag an award. That's one of my other favorite albums.

I love that album, too, but I don't think that most of that album was eligible this year. That was last year. The Cave never really had a good chance in the rock category or up against Adele.

It was great to hear Adele in great vocal form. I bet she never imagined that Paul McCartney would be pumping his fist for one of her performances, and at the Grammys. It made me so happy to see her so happy when she won album of the year.

Jennifer Hudson impressed me so much tonight, delivering a heartbreaking beautiful performance under very difficult circumstances. Major kudos to her.

LL did a very good job with the opening. That was a tough thing to do and I think he handled it very well.

Bruno Mars isn't my cup of tea, but I do think he's a very talented singer and entertainer. Was his reaction to Adele winning for best pop performance for real or a joke?

I really enjoyed Alicia Keys and Bonnie Raitt. Looking forward to Bonnie's upcoming album.

I am not a fan of Chris Brown at all. But, I don't think there should be a character or personality test to perform at the Grammys, especially several years later. If there were such a test, he certainly would not be the only one excluded.

I would have liked to hear The Civil Wars finish their song, but I get that Taylor Swift is huge.

I'm glad Glen Campbell was able to be there and be a part of that tribute while he still has some memory and understanding of what it was all about.

The Nicki Minaj thing was just baffling to me.

Also, I really liked the Chipotle and Target ads.

I would have liked it if each artist had been limited to one song, so we could have a greater number of performers.

I think I love your daughter. David Guetta is an overrated hack :blah: and an insult to/boil on the butt of electronic and dance music

.

Half of my workout songs are by David Guetta or remixes by him. I think he's awesome. :P

Would the dude from The Foo Fighters just get the eff off the stage. Seriously. Who is he fecking? The producer?

Really? Dave Grohl is very talented and from what I understand well liked. But then I am a huge Foo Fighters and Dave Grohl fan, so I am biased. I was excited to see him get to perform 3 times though. I think they do a killer live show.
