The Grammy madness continues.
It's a convergence of multiple podcasts! Our latest episode of Blerd Radio brings together MJ/Big Money, Michael Parr and Mike Duquette from the 4 1/2 Mikes podcast, along with pop-break.com's Bill Bodkin and renaissance man GG for an in-depth look at this year's nominees and potential winners.
In addition to the predictions, you'll hear:
-Why there can never be any such thing as a Beatles reunion again.
-Will Lorde be the bell of the Grammy ball?
-What would an Ozzy Osbourne Grammy speech even sound like? (hint: it involves subtitles.)
-James Blake is NOT the guy who sang "You're Beautiful."
-Looking at the last decade or so of winners, it might be time to reassess the perception of the Best New Artist Grammy as the kiss of death.
-Middle America's love/hate relationship with Kanye West.
-Mos Def's humble beginnings as a co-star of a TV show with Nell Carter.
-Was Justin Timberlake's "Pair Of Wings" written by a pre-teen?
-Lana Del Ray: musical tranquilizers?
-The horrible production values of Faith Evans' R&B Divas album.
-We LOVE LOVE LOVE (all of us) LOVE Nile Rodgers.
All that and more in this special episode (and apologies for the sound issues...my stupid laptop fan was running extra high.)
Nevertheless, listen in the player below, or direct download here, OR head on over to iTunes, check out our other podcasts, and leave some feedback!
