Do we know what categories they're showing?

I hope Kelly C & Jason Aldean get some face-time when they win. Adele obviously will.

Well I don't know. Grammys might pull a fast one (think back to 2008 when everybody was on this Amy Winehouse vs. Kanye thing for AOTY...in the end, Herbie won!) Not interested in Adele's music or anything, but she is the strongest contender and the sorest loser. lol

Both Rihanna (with Coldplay) and Chris are slated to perform at the Grammy Awards, which airs on television on February 12. This will be the first time the music stars both attend the awards since Chris assaulted Rihanna three years ago after a 2009 pre-Grammy party.

dancing/electronica music segment featuring Grammy nominees Deadmau5, the Foo Fighters, Chris Brown, David Guetta and Lil Wayne, all performing in a tent space amid 1,000 fans.

"We decided to go all out this year," Ehrlich said of the performance taking place outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where Sunday's ceremony will be held. "All we're going to try and do next week is to try and put the home audience in the middle of it. ... It is more than just sitting there and watching it."

Dance music did not receive its own category until 2003 with the best dance recording/dance field, and the music had not been featured with its own segment in the show.

Ehrlich calls the performance the "most ambitious number that we've ever done outside the Staples Center." It will feature at least four cameras from audience level as Deadmau5 (pronounced dead mouse) and the Foo Fighters perform his remixed version of the band's song "Rope," which netted him one of his Grammy nominations, and as Brown and Lil Wayne perform with Guetta.

Ehrlich said the performance reflects the popularity of dance music over the past few years.

"As much as a recorded medium that it is, and the fact that it's selling a lot of CDs and downloads, it's really a live experience," he said. "It is more than just sitting there and watching it."

Other performers on the show include Adele, Bruce Springsteen, Chris Brown, Paul McCartney and Taylor Swift for what Ehrlich boasted would be a "pretty amazing show."

"What I try and do when we're building this show is to think about the audience first. ... What can I do that's going to keep an audience for 3 1/2 hours watching the Grammy Awards?" he said. "I do try and look for how broad I can make it and still assume that people are going to tune in and stay with it."

The grammies and the other music shows DONT realize that the audience they are catering too, isnt watching them at all. My problem is this show suffers the same fate as the MTV network, just mtv being a joke calling itself a video station and yet never showing a video, the grammies are an "AWARDS" show that gives out like 9 awards and has about 80 categories, that to me is a joke, now its playing for ratings and sales because it needs the artists to perform, but lets face it, sales suck right now and have for a decade plus, had Adele not had her album this year would have been the biggest drop in a decade, but they need to limit the performances way way down, i mean how many do they have? the last time i watched this show they had 23! thats not a show thats a telethon. They say that its boring to sit through handing out awards in categories like jazz and classical and country, well since country has its own show, as do the latin grammys, just give out all the pop/rb/rock/metal/dance awards, limit the performances to 10, give out about 25-30 awards, LIMIT the fucking speeches, stop the needless thank yous of your hair stylist and weave buyer. END the useless banter of the WACK hosts, and trust me this show would be more meaningful, im tired of having to go online to see who won Rock Album, that shit should be on the show as should RB album, performance, pop album etc....get real, lose 75% of the performances NO ONE CARES. just use the top acts you have to perform, i dont need to hear the whole Blake Shelton song thats not out yet.

I agree they need to show more categories. They never air the winners I want to see go up and accept.

I'm afraid Kelly Clarkson, Marsha Ambrosius, and Cee-Lo will all win but it'll be in the pre-show that nobody sees.

I understand the idea of being all inclusive and this and that, and keeping it fair, but you could actually increase some sales when people see that such and such won best metal album, seriously, i mean outside of some of us on this forum that might go on Grammy.com to check and see who the hell won for Rock album or Rb male performance etc... no one even knows or cares who won these, and if we are gonna say that, why have the show? just have 50 performances and call it a night and forget the awards. I mean years ago i can remember seeing all the Rock awards, or all the rb awards on the show, now you get one and its so lame because they tie the winner into a performance piece right after it so u kind know whos gonna win in a way. I forget there was one year where i think it was Alison Krauss or someone else, low key, actually won the most awards that night and NONE on the freaking show?? really? again why have them. I find myself just look for female artists i like to see what the wore and how hot they looked, and some years catching a good performance or two.

Yep. And since they took alot of categories out this year, the ceremony is going to get even more worse. It's basically going to be a ceremony full of worthless performances. Last year, they had a pre-show webcast where they would show the awardees of the lesser categories win Grammys.

So I don't know how they're gonna do it this year. It's just all ridiculous!

It's even worse this year:

The annual GRAMMY Awards telecast is known as Music's Biggest Night, but, in the hours leading up to the telecast, music enjoys a pretty big day as well. This year, approximately 70 of the 78 GRAMMY categories will be announced at the Pre-Telecast Ceremony on Feb. 12, with the final categories showcased on the CBS telecast. While there's no denying the unique excitement that's part of every GRAMMY broadcast, the Pre-Telecast has come into its own as a major stand-alone event with a distinctive character, an expanding audience, GRAMMY-style live performances, and, of course, no commercial interruptions.

They might announce who won Best Pop Solo, Best Pop Vocal Album, Record, Song and Album of the Year since she's nominated in those categories anyway. The only one that won't be televised that she's also up for is Best Video and I already think Gaga got that one if not anything else (can't see her winning Best Pop Vocal Album or Album of The Year).

They've done the same thing as far as rock goes. They took out the instrumental rock album category (guess to concise every nod in the Best Rock Album category) and some metal-influenced categories as well.

Pretty much...

I dont see why any category matters when it is centered around popularity and politics. To be honest, I rather see all new different members on the committee than any added categories.. It seems their might have been a few changes or the committee decided they were going to be a little fairer this time around.

Because this past decade has been absolutely ridiculous... Their have been alot of great R&B albums that have gotten snubbed BIG time.

host LL Cool J spoke to E!’s Ryan Seacrest about the last-minute scramble to prepare for the Whitney Houston tribute. “We immediately had to jump in gear and figure out how we could be respectful and show her the love she deserves,” he said. “I hope that Whitney Houston’s family and her friends, first of all, appreciate what we do.” He said that it’s difficult to keep the balance of celebrating Houston’s life, but also celebrating all of the artists who are nominated this year. “You don’t want to lay this dark cloud over their Grammy appearance,” he said. Cool J didn’t want to give up too many details about the tribute, but he did say that he got a preview of Jennifer Hudson’s upcoming performance. “It sends chills through your spine. She is obviously a different singer, different diva, but she’s the closest thing we have now to Whitney.”

And my mom said Chris is like the male Jennifer Lopez. lol. But he's not the only one: Justin Timberlake, Usher, and Trey Songz as well. Rihanna looked hotter than fire on the red carpet though.

In the parts I saw she was trying to replay the Exorcist. Apparently "Roman" is some dude disguised as her. And the parts of the actual performance I did see was just awful. Like I said she's in the wrong genre.

I just googled it. The articles are saying she did some crazy shit like try to get a demon out of her and shit like that. What the fuck is wrong with this bitch? The soccer moms are gonna crucify her ass, and rightfully so.

I really want her album to flop so she can become old news already. It's only a matter of time, female MCs don't last very long..

The fact that Chris Brown won in a R&B category over R. Kelly should let everyone know that this show is a fixed popularity contest. It has nothing to do with music.

Yeah I already knew they were gonna give it to Chris before they announced the winner. Looking at his expression, he knew he was gonna win it too. I wasn't outraged or nothing. It is what it is. El or Kels wasn't even at the show anyways.

R. Kelly has been nominated for each of his releases so he always had their support. Chris won because he's a younger act and more "current". It's evident he was going to win based on the other nominees. They threw R. Kelly in because of his credibility in the industry but other then that it was bound to be handed to Chris. This is all geared to a "comeback" for Chris Brown. It's all fixed.

Adele wins 6 Grammys, including album of the year

LOS ANGELES (AP) — With six awards, Adele has matched Beyonce for most Grammy wins in a night by a female act.

Adele's six wins Sunday night include album, record and song of the year. Beyonce set the record two years ago.

Adele was shaking as she won album of the year, almost in tears as she held the award.

Adele's "21" was 2011's best-selling album. It's sold more than six million units in the United States.

She yelled at the end of her speech: "Thank you so much!"

Every year people complain about Grammy winners, despite the nominations coming 3 months before the show airs and it being patently obvious who will most likely win. Rarely is there a real upset. All the disgust and outrage over Chris Brown getting the Best R&B Album award is comedy. Did anyone truly expect that El Debarge, Kelly Price or even R. Kelly to walk away with it?

Nicki Minaj panned for onstage excorism at Grammys

By Hollie McKay

Published February 13, 2012

| FoxNews.com


minaj grammys 640

Miss Minaj, did someone not tell you Madonna did this mock-Catholic thing 20 years ago?

And that Gaga "resurrected" such an act two years ago?

While Nicki Minaj failed to win a Grammy for "Best New Artist" on Sunday night, the burgeoning rap star did succeed in being one of the most discussed singers following the telecast, but not for the most career-boosting of reasons.

Minaji sent the blogosphere into overdrive early in the evening when she arrived on the red carpet supposedly channeling her "Roman Zolanski" alter ego. That required a custom-made Atelier Versace outfit consisting of a blood-red, nun-inspired satin robe. Her "date" was an older man dressed to resemble the pope.

The mood backstage was a mixture of confusion, embarrassment and offense as the performance dragged on, going deeper and deeper in mocking Catholic faith. In a pre-taped skit which was broadcast before her live showdown, Minaj sang "I Feel Pretty," while putting on lipstick to set the stage for the insanity, and the same priest-figure was brought into her room to find out what was wrong with the "sick child."

Minaj drew Lady Gaga comparisons not only for the fact she was using an abundance of sacrilegious symbols, but also because she wore a long bleached blonde wig that resembled Gaga from afar.

"No Lady Gaga performance at the 2012 Grammys? Bummer. But wanna-be controversial rapper Nicki Minaj was happy to do her best Gaga imitation," wrote the Hollywood Reporter.

And although Minaj got tongues wagging with the controversial performance, and became an instant trending topic on Twitter, it still might have cost her at least a few fans as the web blew up with outrage and amusement.

"This nicki minaj performance makes me want to fill my ears with cement then super glue my eyelids together and punch myself in the face," tweeted one viewer, while another said "religion shouldn't be disrespected like that."

Several others expressed disgust that her performance went down during Black History Month, while others simply tweeted that "she SUCKED."

In fact, there was barely a positive tweet out there following Minaj's moment in the spotlight. The critics weren't buying into it either.

"All of Minaj's sacrilegious button-pushing is bound to annoy the Christian Right, the moral majority and make a few fleeting headlines," THR added, while E! online referred to her as the "Worst Spectacle" with a "kinda silly" and "way too long" performance. Entertainment Weekly called it "a mess featuring a whole lot of religious imagery, a smattering pyro and no real messages to be found."

Well this year was a bit surprising... They didnt nominate Beyonce in all the categories like they usually do. They could have easily nominated her in that R&B category but didnt... All the contendors had pretty strong success commercially and Jill Scott got robbed BIG time... She definitly should have been nominated in place of Chris Brown.

Between Lady Gaga and Nikki, just seems like they're in a costume competition to see who can wear the most outrageous costume, that will be the most talked about the next day, on top of who made the craziest entrance. lol Seems it's becoming more about fashion than talent. If you have the talent you don't need to go all out to draw attention to yourself.

Most Definitly.. I think James Brown and Marvin Gaye a piece have One grammy and Queen doesnt even have any... I dont take the Grammys seriously.. Their not a jugdement of artistic merit or talent just a popularity contest...

I dont think Prince even cares...

eek Do my eyes deceive me? You mean to tell me Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna, Katy Perry didn't win a Grammy last night? Is this the first time Beyonce was nominated and didn't win a Grammy? Just curious.

No, there were times she has been nominated and didnt win in some categories but for the majority of the time she has

However, it is the first time she has walked away with 0 grammys in being nominated for ANY category...

I'm exactly glad she didnt win anything because as usual she didnt deserve anything but in the past because of her popularity the Grammys kissed her ass like they do every year with the most popular star.. While El, Kelly and Jedsi, R. Kelly didnt win, they were MUCH better deserving canidates even Jill although she wasnt nominated.

very cool..... for Adele. cool

However Prince only have 7 Grammys - for his very very loong career.... eek

too bad, that's far too less for Prince, he deserved to get more back in 1982-1995, IMHO.

Most Definitly.. I think James Brown and Marvin Gaye a piece have One grammy and Queen doesnt even have any... I dont take the Grammys seriously.. Their not a jugdement of artistic merit or talent just a popularity contest...

I dont think Prince even cares...

With all due respect, and I LOVE Prince, back then his competition actually had TALENT. Nowadays there is no talent other than looking good, flipping your hair and shaking your ass. If he was truly competing today I would be more outraged because there is little to no talent for him to lose any nomination.

I agree! It was much harder to get a grammy and the grammy nominations had better songs and more talent. The competition was much harder than what it is now.

I meant that I dont think Prince cares about winning anymore Grammies because he would be competing with the new generation. The grammies have lost its credibility and relevance to music.

Its just a popularity contest.

Anyway... woot! Yay Adele! I'm happy for her. LL seems to be getting good reviews for hosting last night.

I think Nicki will regret her performance. People are talking but they're probably not saying what she'd like to hear lol

Seems like they tried to be creative in how they honored those who past this year. Whether by a short mention like Don Cornelius or with tribute ie Etta James and Whitney Houston.

the "disgust and outrage" is valid because a) Chris Brown sucks. b) the excellent Jill Scott album should have been nominated and won and c) Chris Brown sucks.

Very true! Jill Scott should have least been nominated in that category and won! Was Raphael Saadiq even nominated this year?

Nicki Minaj Singer Nicki Minaj attends the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards held at Staples Center on February 12, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

The Catholic League Slammed Nicki Minaj in a statement to the press:

Nicki Minaj, fresh off looking like a fool with Madonna at the Super Bowl, showed up last night on the red carpet at the Grammys with a guy dressed like the pope. This was just a prelude of what was to come.

Minaj’s performance began on stage with a mock confessional skit. This was followed by a taped video depicting a mock exorcism. With stained glass in the background, she appeared on stage again with choir boys and monks dancing.

Perhaps the most vulgar part was the sexual statement that showed a scantily clad female dancer stretching backwards while an altar boy knelt between her legs in prayer.

Finally, “Come All Ye Faithful” was sung while a man posing as a bishop walked on stage; Minaj was shown levitating.

None of this was by accident, and all of it was approved by The Recording Academy, which puts on the Grammys.

Whether Minaj is possessed is surely an open question, but what is not in doubt is the irresponsibility of The Recording Academy. Never would they allow an artist to insult Judaism or Islam.

It’s bad enough that Catholics have to fight for their rights vis-à-vis a hostile administration in Washington without also having to fend off attacks in the entertainment industry.

The net effect, however, will only embolden Catholics, as well as their friends in other faith communities.

The Grammy’s was wack. The only thing I really enjoyed was Adele. Lil Wayne, Chris (especially) and Nicki Minaj needed to sit down somewhere with that mess they was singing. It was CRAP…lol at chris winning for R&B album. He’s contributing nothing to R&B I did like some of his album but it was more pop and should have been treated as such.

The new singles he performed yesterday was terrible … his dancing only saving him and barely at that no one respects him anymore. Nicki should not be allowed to make more songs..lmaoo. I think I might skip the BET awards this year as well these three are the channel’s darling and they turning me off with their music. I hope the Weeknd , Miguel or Frank Ocean make it to the Grammy’s next year.

What do you mean "or even R. Kelly"? He was definitely more deserving than the other nominees and his album is actually critically acclaimed unlike the others.

The outrage of Brown's win is understandable since his music isn't even R&B.

The great performances (And my favorites of the night):

Bonnie & Alicia-I like that Alicia sang in her range (She should always do that!) Bonnie is an older artist that kept it real.

Adele-What a stage presence for a new artist at such a young age!! (Besides a good voice)

Jennifer Hudson-Nailed it.

Very Good:

Bruno-Nice James Brown performance. Put a twist and be you Bruno. (Prince did-You can too)

Foo fighters-Fun and energetic. (Not a huge fan of the lead singers voice).

Disappointing Crap:

Chris Brown: Besides the crap lip sync-not that great of a dance routine. Chris Brown just doesn't have the singing voice.

Nikki M. -Just utter crapfest. It was like watching a very bad musical.

Beachboys-Was like watching drying paint. You get a high from them being Beach Boys (and all that great music of years past.), but it was just about as much fun as watching the paint dry.

Paul Mcartney: I love McCartney music-but he has never been an oustanding performer. His first song was boring and life sucking.

The "dance" performance sucked monkey balls. The worst music -unless your high on something.

Rihanna-Crap lip sync with mediocre dancing.

---------------

Bruce did okay.

LOL.. I hate that look (she looks too much like Tina Turner and when I think of Tina Turner I think of people the age of my grandmoms, which is a total boner killer). But yeah, I'd still hit her, I mean, hit that..

I don't care what age she is, I'd do Tina Turner right now. nod

Hell Tina can still get it. drool

Dude.. Nicki looks tore UP. What did she do to her face? Is she gonna end up addicted to plastic surgery like Lil Kim?

Go home. You're stoned.

In the parts I saw she was trying to replay the Exorcist. Apparently "Roman" is some dude disguised as her. And the parts of the actual performance I did see was just awful. Like I said she's in the wrong genre.

I just googled it. The articles are saying she did some crazy shit like try to get a demon out of her and shit like that. What the fuck is wrong with this bitch? The soccer moms are gonna crucify her ass, and rightfully so.

I really want her album to flop so she can become old news already. It's only a matter of time, female MCs don't last very long..

Who's gonna replace her that's just as flashy and popular (mind, I've never seen her live or heard her so I'm not so sure)? Somehow, I doubt that it's Adele, Duffy (where the heck is she, and why didn't she make it in the USA?) Regina Spektor, Arcade Fire, or Bon Iver. The fisrt two are amazing, the last three aren't the kind of artists the general public could get behind (especially the black general public, who were incensed at the Bon Iver win and last years's Arcade Fire win: check out the collected Tweets-http://www.buzzfeed.com/m...s-bon-iver and http://whoisarcadefire.tumblr.com/.)

I hope that both groups don't end up like Christopher_Cross-but considering that both bands are signed to independent labels, that may not happen.
