No big surprises this year...Ray Charles won many, Alicia Keyes is still one of the most talented mainstream artists around (did you see her play that piano and belt out those tunes???).
However, my biggest complaint about this year's Grammys was the lack of awards presented. I think for the duration of the 3 and a half hour show, there were about 8 awards presented. I feel bad for all of those this year that were told, "oh, we're doing your award before the show...sorry." What a let down.
But do I really care all that much? Nahhh. If it were the Oscars it'd be another story, though.
