U2 Maintains "Biggest Band in Universe" Label

For those of us who missed this year’s Grammy Awards, here were the winners of the top eight categories:

Record Of The Year
Boulevard Of Broken Dreams

Green Day

Album Of The Year
How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb


Song Of The Year
Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own


Best New Artist
John Legend

Best Female Pop Vocal Performance
Since U Been Gone

Kelly Clarkson

Best Male Pop Vocal Performance
From The Bottom Of My Heart

Stevie Wonder

Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal
This Love

Maroon 5

Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals
Feel Good Inc.

Gorillaz Featuring De La Soul

Of course,
U2 had to dominate this year’s ceremony by taking home five Grammys for their latest album, How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. The same album that garnered them three awards for the previous year. Seriously, is that fair?

In related news, walking time-bomb,
Mariah Carey, snagged three Grammys for her latest musical effort, The Emancipation of Mimi. Some in the media believe that she was slighted because of her leading eight nominations going into the event. I don’t know if she has much room to complain. Three out of eight Grammys isn’t too bad.

Who out there wonders if Bono will auction off his awards and use the proceeds to help some third world country?

So does anyone wonder if Sly Stone wears his hair like that during the week or why he can't hold his head up? I am still waiting for the comeback of George Clinton and Parliment (especially the bass player with the diaper). Whatever happened to the Funkadelics too? The singing of Joss Stone probably was a highlight of the evening and no one is talking about that either. Give out the gloss and lose the substance I guess.........

It's kind of hard not to give the guy who got Time's Person of the Year award a Grammy. Although I'm a U2 fan, the Bonofication of the Grammy's sometimes makes my head spin. Maybe that's why I didn't watch them?? haha.
