You mean like Arcade Fire, Esperanza Spalding, The Black Keys, The Roots, Sade, Cee Lo, Jay-Z, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Ali Farka Toure, Herbie Hancock, Buddy Guy, Ray Lamontagne and the legendary Mavis Staples? And that was just last year.
That just proves my point ... all ridiculously "of course they're going to fucking win" artists with a few minor exceptions. Arcade Fire's "Album of the Year" was such a shock because of how different that was than the usual, more of that - then I'll care.
So, no, I don't mean like them - I mean deserving artists that aren't everywhere you turn your head, but actually deserve recognition. But that's not what award shows like these are about. And that's why they suck. You just named a list of bands with record sales in the combined 10s of millions - that's just proving my point for me.
