Coldplay makes music. I don't what to call the noise Lil Wayne makes. I understand the term used is rap. Crap is more like it. The Grammy's are a joke.

Yes, Coldplay makes music that it has ripped off from Radiohead, Pink Floyd, U2, you name it. The fact that these unoriginal mediocrities are up for a Grammy is a joke.

Best Grammy moment,'78 Best New Artist nominees, The Cars, Elvis Costello and Toto. The Winner A Taste of Honey.

mainstream music has sucked since the 70's. I don't think blender, or the grammy's has any idea what people like, only what sells the most and a pop demographic. The Grammy awards have been pathetic since before my time. To say this is as good as music is, well that's just pathetic. To some degree I think cold play is talented, lil wayne well produced, but both just suck in general. Then again, the grammy's are what, a pop artist contest?
