    I hope Xtina perform on Grammy Award. It would be great & most talk about. 🙂 I love the performance of RiRi! 🙂 btw, Where’s Ms. Britney Spears? Why the hell she’s not there? 🙁 Go ADELE! We love yeah! :>

    I am happy Adele, Bon Iver, Bruno Mars, and Kanye got nominated 🙂 I am very upset that Beyonce, Jessie J, Christina Perri, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, LMFAO and Robyn got snubbed out of major awards.

    I cannot believe that Rihanna is up for album of the year for that album full of smut. I cannot stand Mumford and Sons…they are so boring.

    I think that Beyonce was totally snubbed for album, record and song of the year. I know that Adele is going to sweep, but c’mon…its always nice to be recognized for quality work.

    I was also hoping for the Pistol Annies to get some love, they had an amzing album.
