I continue to be confused by what the hell the different categories mean.

i think the record companies put their artists up for categories they think they can win so in essence they mean nothing..... for example dr john locked down should be up for best rock record but i guess they felt they couldn't get the nomination so it went in for blues where it did get nominated
How the fuck is Colplay nominated for "Best Rock Album" <- moms listen to that shit. FUCKING MOMS.

How the fuck are they nominated for Album of the Year in 2021? FUCKING MOMS!

No arguments here. I think my people my daughter's age are the target audience. Not people who have spent 30 or 40 years being music fans.

Do you still play that Dr. John record?

Its been a while but I can recall it in my head right now

I guess I sort of burnt out on dr john!

But it really is a rock album.. to call it blues is pushing it

Just 8.8 million people tuned into the Grammy Awards on CBS this year, a new all-time low

Prior to Sunday, 2006 was the lowest-rated Grammy Awards with 17 million viewers.

pandemic-era award shows are just well-organized zoom calls.  dunno about you, but i have enough zoom calls as it is.  i certainly ain't spending my sunday night on one... apparently others agree.

I actually enjoyed it more than any awards show in memory *because* it was so toned down.

Wonder what the cutoff release date for this was? The Fleet Foxes album nominated for best alternative album was released 9/22/20.
