Hi there,

Regarding Grammy, I don't understand why they keep shunning out Mariah Carey. She should have won way more than the 5 she got...especially during the 90's when she is still strong vocally.

I think Coldplay will grab the Record of the Year. Not sure if their copied version of Viva La Vida will spoil everything though. They are sued for copyright right now...

Cheers...
