Your Grammy picks

Eminem's "Recovery" was made complete on Wednesday night as the Recording Academy nominated the resurgent rapper for 10 awards, including the biggest prizes: album, song, and record of the year.

It was a night that also saw the academy honor one of the year's most profane but infectious hits: Cee Lo's "(Expletive) You," so foul it had to be changed for radio to "Forget You," was nominated for both record and song of the year. Tell us who you think should win in the four categories below.

If that JB kid wins anything I will give up all hope for the commercial music business. I just hope he can survive it intact. Ruled by the Disney marketing machine. Disney must die! No wonder sales are crashing along with concert attendance, can anyone say "Disco"? Hopefully this sort of "music" which is really more like a tourist show at Disneyland, or vegas where the dancers and the show are what's important, not the music. The music is cookie cutter pop/disco. Same for rap, hip hop whatever. Is it really music if they pay more attention to what the performers are wearing?

I want JB to win and get the Best New Artist curse and disappear from the business in a year, but not into drugs or alcohol. Just loose his voice, his $$$, and get a job at a Walmart in the music department...

While I despise everything Justin Bieber stands for, I understand what Poetblu means about the Best New Artist curse - remember back in 1978 when A Taste Of Honey (of "Boogie Oogie Oogie" infamy) won, beating out Elvis Costello (among others)? Where are they now? As for EC, he has gone on to an amazing career with over 30 albums at this point.

Meanwhile, as for "F... You", I hope it and Cee-Lo win every award possible. A great song, even if the Post in its infinite (or should that be infantile) wisdom, calls it "foul". It's not, it's truthful. Especially in times where a certain evil party, who shall remain nameless (although it rhymes with 'repugnant can') is doing everything they can to destroy this country. They are what is profane and foul and obscene in this country, not Cee-Lo's song.

Long may "F... You" reign!!!
