What A Grammy Means

So I have heard a ton of times that Grammys are like, not really that great anymore. That they don't support the real artists, and just represent the older artists and forget about newer ones. Or that they give out a lot of awards(110 does seem a bit much, doesn't it?) But really, in my opinion, this is the pinnacle of the music industry. I mean, they're like the Oscars of Music.

So the fact that the Jonas Brothers were nominated for a Grammy, Best New Artist, is clearly a big deal. I don't think Disney, or Hollywood Records, has ever had a nominee. It's a big deal. I mean, go onto wikipedia and look at nominees and winners. The Beatles won this award 33 years ago. I mean, these performers are relevant. If you look at every one of them, almost all have had more than one hit, more than one good record, and are not a fleeting thing. I wouldn't care if they lost, which knowing the way the Grammys have voted probably will happen, I think that the nomination in itself is a big thing. Not everyone is nominatedl. Real artists are nominated. I mean, it's a big deal. Yes, the Grammys have had some faults, but what award show hasn't? Jennifer Hudson anyone? Yeah, exactly.

Anyways, I hope the Jonas Brothers take this and hold it dear. They've got competition. This year, I think, is full of great nominees. Seven nominations for Coldplay, and some for Death Cab for Cutie. Three of my favorite bands. I mean, the Jonas Brothers are going as Best New Artist in their third album. I just wish they were going farther away from Disney,and not closer. They deserve every bit of success they have, but Grammy winners for Best New Artist should not be Disney. You don't see Miley getting one, do you?

Hold up. Upon further investigation, I hope they don't win. Bad curse. Don't win, and I'll be happy. Nomination is good enough. Hell, they'll probably win. I just don't know.

yeah, you better hope the jonas brothers don't get the best new artist one, that award is like cursed. Most of the people who win that one are like never heard from again, or like not have much success after that. Think, milli vanilli, they won, and look what happened to their career. There are also lots of other examples, but i just don't feel like listing them. So pray they don't win, or else they will be cursed.
