No question Grammys are typically popularity contests and also political.I don't want anyone to take this the wrong way, but overall, do we consider Grammy wins (or even nominations) to be a good thing?
Diana Ross, Queen and the Beach Boys never won one. On the other hand, Milli Vanilli and Justin Bieber both have.
I appreciate the write-ups everyone's been doing for their artists, particularly they why you chose them and are passionate about them. More of that please.
(I'd still like John Cougar and the Foo Fighters if they never even got a nomination.)
But that's just me.
I feel like the Grammys just go by what's popular. Sometimes great musicians/singers are popular and get them, sometimes mediocre ones do. Music can be an art form, but it also could be someone with autotune formulating a hit song to make as much money as possible.
