Alicia Keys Outstanding Female Artist? Wow, what a low threshold. The song wasn't even a minor hit. It flopped. I guess I need to prepare myself for another award season full of misguided nominations and winners. I'm sure she won't win but still...that nomination could have went to someone else more deservant this year.

Please don't get me started on A. Keys. Musically, this chick is done. No more creativity left yet she continues to get high praises. Why?

Her last album sucked horribly and the same can be said for those non-album singles. Good grief. confused

Lol! I was like uh? Alice had a song out? They really are reaching. But with R&B music in the state that its in I am not surprised. It really makes me miss the 90's.
