The music industry’s yearly exercise in irrelevant subjectivity, The Grammy’s, take place Feb. 12. The nominations were announced today. Hey, look at Wilco getting a nom for best rock album! Although, up against Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon and Red Hot Chili Peppers, I don’t like their chances too much.
Kanye West leads with seven nominations, while Adele is up for album, record and song of the year. Not a bad debut performance. I wouldn’t be surprised if she wins all three of her categories.
If so, hopefully she’s a more graceful winner than Eddie Vedder.
