Superstar Mariah Carey to Clean Up at This Year's GRAMMY Awards According to 4th Annual VH1 Grammy Poll
Adult respondents in VH1's fourth annual poll single out the songbird's CD The Emancipation of Mimi as most likely to win Album of the Year and her international hit We Belong Together most likely to win Song of the Year. The single also tied in the poll for Record of the Year.
To top off Mariah's near-sweep in the VH1 poll, a majority of the respondents crowned her as the Best Female Pop Vocal Performance nominee they would personally like to take singing lessons from.
VH1 commissioned a telephone poll of a random national sample of 529 men and women between the ages of 18-49 who were asked who they, personally, thought would win Record, Album, Song, and Best New Artist of the Year.
"Without a doubt Mariah Carey's huge comeback was the big music story of 2005 and continues into this year. With more than five million album copies sold to date and numerous awards already won, the results of our GRAMMY poll reflect the public's love for Mariah," said Rick Krim, EVP, Talent and Music Programming, VH1. "We'll have to wait and see if the music industry will give her the credit that her fans already have."
