    Now that I know what I know about Pharrell I would just as soon not see him. He is still super talented but I don’t want to hear anything from him.

    Pharelle is going to kill those categories. He really has no competition. In the categories he’s is in. Paramore should win theirs. They are a solid rock group. Meghan Trainor should in her category. I like her style and her videos are fun and animated. Iggy will win her category even though she is biting off of black culture but she is what’s hot so it doesn’t really matter.

    Good luck to the nominees!!!

    I am a huge Black Keys fan love them they killed here in my city last week. And I like some of Sam Smith’s songs. “Stay With Me and “I Know I’m Not The Only One are good. He can sometimes be a little too whiny and that can get on my nerves after a while. That Meghan Trainor “All About That Base” is a fun and cute song.

    Woe is I who gets older because I barely like any of these people.

  • Delia

    After the Miguel and Kendrick Lamar upsets I’m done with award shows. They are clearly rigged with political and popular agendas without the true acknowledgement of talent.

      And the upset with Justin Timberlake winning over Tamar Braxton in the r&b category last year….
