Grammy Nominees

Seeing as the Grammys are around the corner, I checked out the list of nominees. On the pop music side, there is not much by way of surprise, but take a look at who is nominated for best solo rock performance:

Bob Dylan

John Fogerty

Prince

Bruce Springsteen

Neil Young

Hey the 70s called and they want their rockers back. Seriously, are there no modern rockers good enough to even make a nominee? The hard rock category is not much better, but then that category should be moved to a side show anyway.

The selection in the major awards are pretty good. Should be close competition among the women especially. Also given that the trio of Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift are all nominated for best song, best album and best pop female solo. The only other nominee who has covered the major categories is the Black Eyed Peas.

It should be worth watching even though the show airs early on Monday morning here in India.
