U2's GRAMMY Awards results...
« on: January 31, 2010, 05:16:58 PM »
So far the band is 0 for 2 at the GRAMMYS. "I'll Go Crazy" lost both of its categories to "Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon. This was during the pre-show awards ceremony. The BEST ROCK ALBUM category will be announced later during the TV broadcast.

Reactions?

The Grammys love U2. I don't see them going 0 for 3.

I think they'll win Best Rock Album.

Plus, Crazy Tonight didn't really deserve a nomination.

I honestly dont care about awards.  To me, its more important that we the fans embrace and welcome their music than some awards committee

They wont win best album I think, and Magnificent or Breathe if it was made a single would have been better nominees than Crazy

While I LOVE the boys, I've been disappointed at the reaction to the new album.  I think it's fantastic, but I think if they win best rock album people will be snarky over it, because the Grammys as an institution reflects the ill of the music industry.  Even though I honestly think it's one of their best.  But I know I'm in the minority.  I'm just proud they are the group that has won the most Grammys ever with 22!

I always believed that the fans should vote the Grammys. 

I will also admit that of all the songs on NLOTH, "Crazy Tonight" would not be my choice for any nomination.  I think there are others on the album that are much stronger.

I could not agree more with you on that one!

I agree that "Crazy" was a weird nomination anyway.  I personally think NLOTH is utterly brilliant -- but because it wasn't so well received publicly and had no standout singles, I do think if it wins tonight we'll get a lot of snark.

I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one!  When I first heard it, I told my boyfriend that I think it's as good/better than Joshua Tree!  He disagreed, of course.  And I'm SURE we'd hear alot of snark over that!

I was not completely happy with NLOTH, but after I saw U2 play the songs live and I heard some of the comments made by Bono about the direction of the CD, I changed my mind.  I really do like the CD.  I do agree that a better single could have been chosen, but alas, they did not ask me.  Win or lose, thin or flush.........I love my U2.  Kisses to the guys.

I'm sad that U2 didn't win the other 2 nominations, but I'm really hoping that they win for best rock album, NLOTH deserves it :)
