Grammy Awards: Indie Still Owns Your Face

Winehouse fans

The 50th annual Grammy Award nominations are in: Kanye seems to be leading the pack with 8 noms and Amy Winehouse with 4. Grammy Award for Most Predicted Moment of the Night will probably also go to Kanye when he cries like a baby and thanks his mama and the Big G on the podium. Or maybe to Amy when her skeletal figure stares blankly at the camera with half opened eyes and thanks her hubby Blake for being such a wonderful influence on her. Before she promptly passes out.

I will only mention the nominations that interest me. If you have any interest in the fact that Chaka Khan is still making music or that country music noms are still dominated by artists that were dominating like 25 years ago [yawnfest], you can go see for yourself.

That is all.
