And the Nominees Are...

We're just four days away from the 51st Grammy awards! On Sunday night, as you watch the Grammys live on KTAB, hop on your computer and chat with us live here on the Abilene Grammy blog! We're going to talk about the winners, the losers, the clothes and, of course, the music.

Record of the Year:
Chasing Pavements (Adele)
Viva La Vida (Coldplay)
Bleeding Love (Leona Lewis)
Paper Planes (M.I.A)
Please Read the Letter (Robert Plant and Alison Kraus)

I have a feeling M.I.A. is going to win Record of the Year for Paper Planes. I really liked it and I think that's the direction pop culture went in this past year. Although, I did just read the lyrics, and it's all about selling drugs. If this was 1993 and I had purchased the album with my babysitting money, my dad totally would have made me sell it back to CD Warehouse.

Album of the Year:
Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends (Coldplay)
Tha Carter III (Lil Wayne)
Year Of The Gentleman (Ne-Yo)
Raising Sand (Robert Plant & Alison Krauss)
In Rainbows (Radiohead)

Not gonna lie. I have never heard more than one track off any of these albums. Help me out here, what do you think?

Song of the Year:
American Boy (Estelle Featuring Kanye West)
Chasing Pavements (Adele)
I'm Yours (Jason Mraz)
Love Song (Sara Bareilles)
Viva La Vida

I'm a big fan of American Boy, I'm Yours, Love Song, and Viva La Vida! I'd be happy with any of the winners. I had never heard Chasing Pavements until I just Googled it. How 'bout you? (By the way, the winner is actually the writer, but I went ahead and put the artist's name.)
