Grammies in actually-80%-right-category shock!
Field 2 - Dance
Well, you know, I'd rather have had a different Scissor Sisters song, but all things told, very nice!
The rock duo/group category is 80% things I wouldn't mind winning, but not necessarily my first choices (Franz Ferdinand, Green Day, Killers, U2--OK, I'll grant that "Vertigo" is a good song).
Overall, not too bad. Kind of fun to see Modest Mouse, the Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Green Day, and Kanye West get some nods. Most of the "rap" category's not too shabby, too, plus female pop vocal, and a few others. I'll watch. Maybe Prince will perform! Although it's something of a shame that Brian Wilson's going to lose to a subpar Ray Charles album.
