So is U2 going to win this one? If not, who will?

don't care. Grammys are irrelevant to quality. htdaab won more than JT and AB combined.

I totally agree that they're irrelevant to quality, but I bet it would still feel good to Bono and Band to win.

Since Beck is nominated for Album Of The Year, I believe he will win Best Rock Album

This has typically been a good indicator in the past.

There is a school of thought that you give the grammy to the one most deserving based on their career and not the specific piece. Thus, While U2 swept grammys for ATYCLB and HTDAAB, this was in some ways a recognition that they had previously overlooked great albums like Unforgettable Fire, Achtung Baby and Zooropa in the past. Beck has won three grammys, Tom Petty has three, Black Keys have six, Ryan adams has none.

U2 has 22. That's more than all the other nominees combined.

U2 is probably going to be defeated by Beck this time. I like his album by the way. It's really good, but so it's U2's

I think it'll be U2 or Beck... Black Keys could easily snag it though. I think they'll win at least 1 grammy.

By that logic, however, wouldn't have NLOTH won its Grammy nomination?

By NLOTH, U2 had won 15 grammys in the previous 9 years, including a win in at least one of each of the major categories in four DIFFERENT years. There was U2 fatigue at those grammys, and even if NLOTH was a big hit, I don't think U2 would have won.
