Grammy Nominees 2009!

December 4, 2008 — 3 Comments

Did you know that they changed the way they announce the nominees? I didn’t. Just found out tonight they were doing presentations and stuff, instead of just naming them… didn’t watch, did you? Anyway, I’m not really impressed with the music… Coldplay with Viva la Vida, REALLY? I thought the album was pretty rubbish…

Viva la Vida got 7 nods, including Record, Song and Album of the Year. Really? Lil Wayne apparently has 8 nods, but I can only count 6… so whatever.

Other nominees include… Sara Bareilles with Love Song in the Song of the Year category – it baffles me how she can get a nod, when Regina Spektor has NONE. Jason Mraz is also nominated in this category with I’m Yours, while Duffy and The Jonas Brothers are nominated in the Best New Artist category.

And I’m too lazy to go category by category, so here’s a not-so-tidy list of some of the names in the list…

Pink, Leona Lewis, Katy Perry, Kid Rock, Alison Krauss, John Mayer, Paul McCartney, Eagles, Maroon5, Alicia Keys, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Sheryl Crow, Rihanna, Daft Punk, Kylie Minogue, Moby, Robyn, Natalie Cole, Josh Groban, Rufus Wainwright, Metallica, Radiohead, LeAnn Rimes, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Juanes, Ximena Sariñana, DLG… etc etc.

Including nominations for the films American Gangster, August Rush, Juno, Mamma Mia!, and Sweeney Todd for Best Compilation Soundtrack. The Dark Knight, Indiana Jones, Iron Man, There Will Be Blood, and Wall-E for Best Score Soundtrack… AND, Wall-E, The Bucket List, Walk Hard the Dewey Cox Story, and a double nomination for Enchanted for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture.

For the long boring list of nominees… lol – you can go here.

Wow, apparently my predictions were right on target… sort of LOL’ And this is solely based on buzz… (full list of winners here)

Grammy Nominees were announce, but won’t post (full list here)

Music was pretty much disappointing this year, only counting with what’s nominated, xD~ However, still decided to pick some… starting from the categories at the bottom of the list… the ones no one cares much about, but I do.

Producer of the Year Non-Classical – I’m guessing Timbaland… but would like seeing Mark Ronson there.

Best Song for Motion Picture – It so totally has to be Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova from the Once Soundtrack.

Best Score – It probably is Babel, but I would like Pan’s Labyrinth.

Best Soundtrack – ONCE… like, TOTALLY.

Other winners would be, Vince Gill for Country Album if wanting a chance to win the nod on Album of the Year. Dierks Bentley for Country song, if winning Best Male Country… though Stupid Boy by Keith Urban would be cool~ Duo country, Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson with their cooler version of Clarkson’s own Because of You.

The Eagles, because… well, it’s them. Would love Alison Krauss winning Female Country, but probably Carrie Underwood will get that if she wants a chance at Song of the Year. Kanye West will probably dominate the Rap category… I’m suspecting Foo Fighters winning in the Rock categories to up the chances of them winning Album and Record of the Year~~~ Also White Stripes for Icky Thump (even though I would like Lily Allen or Bjork for Alternative Album)… Feist for Pop Album, to up her chances for Best New Artist – I just don’t like Amy Winehouse, but she’s got the most chances solely based on buzz.

Would love love Christina Aguilera for Candyman… but would settle for Feist with 12345 if that means that would up her chances at beating Winehouse for New Artist. Timbaland’s song with Furtado and Timberlake is probably a shoo in…

Justice for D.A.N.C.E – awesome song from Cross… hope that also wins for Video because that video is so rocking! Michael Buble for Pop Vocal or Traditional yara-yara Album Call Me Irresponsable even though he’s an ass for cheating on Emily Blunt.

U2 for Windows in the Skies… which should’ve also been nominated for the video.

Song of the Year, Like a Star by Corinne Bailey Rae just because I dun want any of the others winning. xD

Justin Timberlake - HBO - Future/Sex Love/ShowIt’s 1hr. into the Justin Timberlake, FutureSex/LoveShow Concert on HBO Latin America. You can guess by me writing. Not enjoying it too much. Rock Your Body just began… looks promising, more on that later.

The concert began slow with FutureSex, and shortly interrupted by a black screen, and Like I Love You/My Love – that one number was good. Exciting,but then the show went down the drain for me. Can’t really say I enjoy much JT’s ballads… the whole playing instruments part is kinda nifty, but let’s just say I’m not paying to see him play any instruments… well, I’m not paying. But I wouldn’t go to his show to see him sit on his squeaky-bum… I wanna see some jumping around, and sweat… loads of breathless chorus with some playback on.

So, Amy’s not big on the whole slow jamming Timberlake does, and Rock Your Body begins, but doesn’t deliver. The next guitar-driven JT ballads are kinda alrite to listen to, snorted a bit on the whole Nsync back-in-time Gone performance, and I still think Justified is a better album than FS/LS.

If you enjoyed the whole FutureSex/LoveSound album, there’s a chance u might like this show. However, I’m one of those who just enjoyed about 5 songs of it, I’ll just stick with the downloads… not worth my DVD $$. I can live without having this in my collection, and can probably live without being in one of his concerts. Besides, JT’s got enough $$, so he won’t mind me I bet…

Anyway… loads of “ohhs,” “ooh!,” “ahhh,” “moan moan,” lick a finger over here… have a drink there, have a thrust “whoa…” how about a little rub ooh! I’m freaky, ask Julyssa if you want xD I need me some innocent sounding pop music…

Image of the concert, totally cool. Dig the giant screens where you can see JT’s giant face and the giant spirits of gospel chorus. The band was good, JT’s voice… hmm, not on the plus side. Dancing wasn’t too cool either… random shots on random bimbos not knowing lyrics to the songs, totally snort-worth. Backstage camera? I dunno…

Visuals: 4/5
Voice: 3/5
Dancing: 3/5
Music: 4/5

Overall: 14/20

Well, my music video knowledge is very limited, but these are a couple of the trivia that I know by heart:

  • The first EVER music video aired on MTV was “Video Killed the Radio Star” by, if I recall correctly, The Bugles.
  • “Thriller” by Michael Jackson was the first ever Music Video-Turned Short Film.
  • The first ever Music Video I remember watching is “Remember the Time” by Michael Jackson – another short film/music vid!
