    The grammys are not overrated, they are irrelevant.

    Re: PeteJuggernaut – Agreed! The Grammys don't reward artist for making quality music, they reward artists for making money for the industry.

    No black or gay artists mentioned. Perez is a fat, racist, homophobe.

    Nice to see Two Door Cinema Club being nominated. But i miss The Courteeners I think 'Falcon' is a really good album and they are really good live as well.
