    The Grammy’s board has fallen inline with the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame by going for style vice musical talent. The Grammy’s board eliminated some of the following music categories; Latin Jazz, Native American, Cajun/Zydeco, Hawaiian, Contemporary Jazz, R&B, Traditional Blues, Traditional R&B, Urban Alternative, Norteno & Mexican, World Music, Instrumental Rock, Classical, Female and Male awards, and all categories outside the pop/entertainment genre. I don’t support the RRHOF and now I quit supporting the Grammy’s until the limousine liberals get kicked off the voting and selection panels of both boards.

    Having posted the above; giving a “DJ” a Grammy is like allowing snow tubing as a competition in the Olympics. Congratulations on your Grammy DJ.

    Nikki Minaj’s performance was a disgrace. The producers should never have allowed a blatnat attack on a religion, any religion! Until an official apology is issued boycott CBS and all of their sponsors products.
