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...
