    I think it was a given that Hancock would get the Contempoary Jazz album prize. Now let’s see if he takes the big prize

    very cool so far thanks for doing this kevin!

  3. LynnNo Gravatar says:

    Kevin, were you watching the broadcast on Grammy.com? Did any of the country performers/winners show up to accept their award? I only caught the last 20 or so awards and it surprised me that only 2 people (Foo Fighters and Mark Ronson) showed up to accept. Just wondering…

  4. KevinNo Gravatar says:

    Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Ricky Skaggs & The Whites and Jim Lauderdale were present to accept their awards, as were the songwriters of “Before He Cheats.”

  5. LynnNo Gravatar says:
