Shame on the Grammy's & it's Director & Producers
It is flat out AWFUL and WRONG what the Grammy's has done this year. They used Mariah Carey's mega-star power to draw in viewers (her millions of fans) for RATINGS and MONEY and then do NOT show or even acknowledge, on the air, her accepting 1 of her 3 Grammy's. They take time to show us/acknowledge old timers, Producer of the year, smaller music industry folk and others who should be BUT if you do that you NEED and MUST show and respect one the main stars of your show, AND YOUR AUDIENCE, and add one of her award category's into the broadcast event. They go as far to acknowledge Richard Prior? Great comedian and actor but
what? This is a music award show correct? We take time to talk about a non musician and do not acknowledge how inspirational a comeback and what music legend Mariah Carey has done can be? Further: U2 is a great band - but should have NOT won album of the year. It's very sad they won. Mariah Carey's album was a HUGE crossover that sold and was loved by all sexes, all ages, all races...from 12 years old to 50 years old. Mariah was flat out ROBBED and publicly snubbed by the Grammy's. What she did and her comeback, should have been acknowledged - for some reason (Sony's pull & grudge perhaps?) she was not awarded a Grammy on the live event. Many, if not most (news, media, online, the industry, critics, millions of fans, etc) thought Mariah was going to win. It's ridiculous and all CREDIBITY FOR THE GRAMMY'S IS LOST because of this year. I will not give them another try. The judges should be more than just old Caucasian guys that have been doing this for 30 years. This coming from a 38 year old Caucasian man in the entertainment industry. I'm shocked what the Grammy's did. SHAME on all involved in producing the show. Bye bye Grammy's.
