Oh Papa Oh Grammy!

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Say it with me… Mary J Blige… Doesn’t it just roll off your tongue with a perfect cadence? Clearly it does to the nominating committee of the 49th annual Grammy Awards. Miss Dancerie is up for 8 golden gramophones, Roxy sweethearts RHCP are nominated for 6 awards, JT is hoping to bring sexy back, Bob Dylan probably doesn’t give a shit that "Modern Times" was passed over for Album of the Year, and I can only imagine that the Dixie Chicks are chomping at the bit to give their special brand of censor-worthy speeches for any of their 5 nominations.

For a complete list of hopefuls in all 108 categories, check out the Grammy website, and weep for the future.

Now where did I put that short list...
