The 2006 Grammy Awards (I)


Well, the nominees list has been published. You can find it here. The ceremony is to take place on February 11th, 2007.
Here are my 2 cents on who I’d vote for in each category:

  • Record of the Year – even though I don’t think it is the best record of this year, I’d go for Mary J Blige – Without you. Actually, I really like this track and I definetely think it is the best out of the other nominated songs.
  • Album of the Year – Definetely the Stadium Arcadium should take this one. There is no debate about it, it just rocks and all the others are quite crap.
  • Song of the Year – This award goes to the songwriter and in my view the writer of Not Ready to Make Nice should take it.
  • Best New Artist – Even if I don’t really like that over-romanced music, I’d go for James Blunt on this one.
  • Best Female Pop Performance – Wow, I can’t believe KT Tunstall is nominated. Yes, she should take home the award.
  • Best Male Pop PerformanceDaniel Powter, with Bad Day…maybe.
  • Best Pop Group – Even though most of the indie blogosphere would probably go for Death Cab for Cutie, I would stick to Black Eyed Peas on this one, even if “My Humps” was lower than expected.
  • Best Pop Collaboration – I’d go for Mary J Blige & U2.
  • Best Solo Rock Performance – I have a special attaraction for Tom Petty with Saving Grace
  • Best Rock Group Performance – Again, R.H.C.P. with Dani California.
  • Best Hard Rock Performance – I’d go for System of a Down.
  • Best Metal PerformanceSlayer, no doubt about it !
  • Best Rock Instrumental Performance – again, a pretty straight one should go to David Gilmour.
  • Best Rock Album – Again, I would go for Tom Petty.

And for the other categories I’m going to write something soon – to be continued…
