Grammy THIS, Coldplay

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m still smarting over the Grammys. Jason Mraz was nominated for three awards and walked away with 0. “I’m Yours” should have gotten song of the year, NOT “Viva La Vida”. It’s an ok song, yeah, but it’s not anywhere near Jason’s musical masterpiece. This development in his fantastic career is troubling. Stupid Coldplay. I’m slightly less upset about John Mayer beating him out for “Best Male Pop Vocals” with “Say”, but still. Jason’s voice was better, although I’m glad that if anyone won, it was John. (I love how I refer to them by their first names, like we’re buds) (On the other hand, Jason and I are going to get married some day, so it’s ok)

Highlights:

Record of the Year: Robert Plant and Alison Kraus: Please Read the Letter

Best New Artist: Adele

Best Rock Album: Coldplay, Viva La Vida, or Death and All His Friends

Song of the Year: Coldplay, Viva La Vida (Hate is pouring from my soul)

Best Pop Vocal Performance (Female): Adele, Chasing Pavements

Best Pop Vocal Performance (Male): John Mayer, Say

Best Rock/Pop Performance by Duo/Group with Vocals: Coldplay, Viva La Vida

Best Pop Collaboration: Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Rich Woman

Album of the Year: Robert Plant & Alison Krauss: Raising Sand

And now, for the amazingness of Jason… for whom I screamed every time the camera showed him. I thought he was still on tour and he wasn’t going to make it. Although he didn’t perform, he was there! My mom thought I was crazy…

EDIT: John Mayer is a good guy.

What's up, my dudes?
