I think we will see Outkast walk away with a lot of them but deep in my heart I want The White Stripes to take at least a couple.

Record of the year - "Hey Ya" Outkast

Album of the year - "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below"
OutKast

Song of the year - "Lose Yourself" Eminem

Best new artist - Evanescence (I think 50 Cent should win but they wouldn't want him on stage)

Best Female Pop Vocal Performance - "Fallen" Sarah McLachlan

Best Male Pop Vocal Performance - "Cry Me a River" Justin Timberlake (Don't know much about the other nominees)

Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal - "Hole In The World" Eagles

Best Pop Vocal Album - "Justified" - Justin Timberlake

Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal - "Seven Nation Army" - The White Stripes

Best Hard Rock Performance - "Bring Me To Life"
Evanescence Featuring Paul McCoy (I really want Audioslave to win)

Best Rock Song - "Seven Nation Army" The White Stripes

Best Rock Album - "Fallen" Evanescence

Best Alternative Music Album - "Elephant" The White Stripes

Best Female R&B Vocal Performance - "Dangerously In Love 2" Beyoncé

This is getting long...I will stop now but Beyoncé and Outkast will get most of the R&B Grammys.

What are your thoughts?

Grammy awards - it's kind of like the Oscars, except for music artists instead of actors.

Justin Timberlake's fly will be open.

My prediction? It will be a borefest, and I won't watch it.

I've never quite figured out how time works in the Grammy universe. A lot of the nominated songs or albums (Eminem, Coldplay, Queens of the Stone Age, Audioslave), came out a while ago, way back into 2002. No Doubt's nominated for a song on an album that came out in December 2001! What's up with that?

Then there's George Harrison, who's nominated despite being, like, dead for two-and-a-half years.

Either OutKast or the White Stripes would be fine by me for Best Album.

There was a piece on the Grammys in today's Toronto Star (read it here.), about how boring and sober the Grammys are.

I can admit that I was wrong. I caught the last half of the Grammies, and loved the performances. Especially the 15 minute funkfest medley. That was cool.

Too bad they can't just have a TV special starring a boatload of currently popular musicians and older industry standard types playing together once a month or so. The best part of any awards show is when the creative side (as opposed to the sterile, over-produced side) of the industry takes over. You can tell that the true talents in the business enjoy that aspect of the show, too, just by seeing how much energy they invest in the performances.

Edited to add:

Hee. I just read the Star's preview of the show. Apparantly, I caught the only good parts predicted for the broadcast (the Outkast performances - both alone and with George Clinton, and Sarah McLachlan).

The White Stripes were great. Jack White is one amazing guitarist.

What is the difference between the "best record" and "best album" categories?

"best record" - I think is just one song
"best album" - is all the songs, the album

I could be wrong.

To make a distinction b/w "Best Record" and "Song of the Year" -- "song of the year" is a song-writer/producer award whereas Best Record is an award for the performer.

I see Fountains of Wayne were nominated for Best New Artist. For Christ sake they were getting critical acclaim for their first album back in 1996.

I assume that Mars Volta didn't get a single nomination for Deloused in the Comatorium
