***Avis sur les nominations***

Comme d’habitude, c’est vraiment la foire au grand n’importe quoi. La grande perdante est bien evidemment Beyonce qui était devenue la reine de la cérémonique à cause de ses ventes, il y a quelques années. Cette fois, 4 est de bien meilleur qualité que  ” Sasha Fierce” et “B’Day” mais les ventes étaient faibles, elle se fait snober au profit d’Adèle et de Rihanna qui grapille quand même ( par je ne sais quel miracle), UNE NOMINATION POUR l’album de l’année. De quoi totalement discediter tout la cérémonie.

Dans le même genre, l’excès de Nicki Minaj et sa simple nomination dans la partie Rap est une insulte au genre. Je suis cependant plutot content de voir que Kanye West et Lupe Fiasco ait persisté et recolte quelques catégories, tout comme R.Kelly, Eric Benet, El Debarge qui font très bonne figures en R&B. Une catégorie R&b, peu surprenante, pas très diversifiée ( chiffres oblige) mais ça se tient. On retient cependant les abscendes de Jill Scott et de Musiq Soul Child qui auraient quand même mérité des clins d’oeil pour leurs sorties respectives. Ledisi reste dans son genre reste la chouchoutte de la cérémonie même si j’ai du malà croire qu’elle en gagnera un cette fois ci.  Je souhaite aussi qu’R.Kelly s’en aille avec un petit grammy pour bien clore comme il faut cette ère même s’il est loin véritablement mérité au vu de ses advesaires. A part pour l’album , il  ne fait pas le poids face à Eric Benet ou Ledisi sur les titres qui se font face.
