57th Grammy Awards - A Complete List of Winners (and Losers)


Last night, Sunday, February 08, 2015 the 57th Grammy Awards show was aired. Never in my life have The Grammys been a bigger joke to me (with maybe one exception)than it was last night.

As an avid fan of real music and especially being a person so immersed in the culture of hip-hop I haven't been invested in the Grammy Awards since I was about 12 years old. I remember it like it was yesterday. The 41st Annual Grammy winners were just a complete joke to me in all the mainstream music that I was familiar with. To refresh your memory, that was the year that 'Gettin' Jiggy Wit I' by Will Smith won Best Rap Solo Performance over 'Dangerous' by Busta Rhymes, 'Gone till November' by Wyclef Jean, 'Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)' by Jay-Z AND 'Lost Ones' by Lauryn Hill. I called shenanigans then and I'm calling shenanigans now.

Whoever is picking winners is grossly out of touch with reality. I mean have you truly listened to the mind numbing crap that is in current rotation on Billboards Hot 100? 93% is just straight up homogenous garbage. But anyway, you didn't click this article to hear this old timers rantings of an age come and gone.

Without further ado here's the list of winners for the 57th Grammy Awards.
