My Grammy Awardees

Here's who I'm rooting for in the following categories:

"Here We Go Again," Ray Charles and Norah Jones
"American Idiot," Green Day
"Heaven," Los Lonely Boys
"Yeah!" Usher featuring Lil Jon and Ludacris

*** I'm sorry, but I'm biased. I would've voted for Green Day's American Idiot, but Usher's Yeah was all over the place in 2004. So this record gets my vote.

Album of the Year:
Genius Loves Company, Ray Charles and various artists
American Idiot, Green Day
The Diary of Alicia Keys, Alicia Keys

My votes are not based on any musical know-how, on recording or producing or writing the song. My choices are based on my appreciation of the artist, the song writers, the songs, and of the record. I hope I don't get any complaints that I should've voted for this artist instead of that one, because, hell, IT'S MY VOTE, so there =P
