Mimi and You: We Break Down the Grammys and Reveal Our Picks for the Top Awards
Album of the Year
Nominees: The Emancipation of Mimi (Mariah Carey), Chaos and Creation in the Backyard (Paul McCartney), Love.Angel.Music.Baby. (Gwen Stefani), How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb (U2), Late Registration (Kanye West)
We Say: : Hands down, this is Mimi's award. Nobody sold more albums, and nobody in the category overcame as many career obstacles--Glitter, anyone?--as she did.
Ted Casablanca Says: Mariah Carey: Kanye, your year was so 2005. And while I like shakin' my trÃƒÂ¨s existent rump to "Gold Digger" as much as the next dawg, I'm gonna have to bet my ill-fitting spandex ski suit on Mimi. Hey, all this success, and the diva still can't find solid love. At least give the gal a damn Grammy, right?
Song of the Year
Nominees: "Bless the Broken Road" (Rascal Flatts), "Devils & Dust" (Bruce Springsteen), "Ordinary People" (John Legend), "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own" (U2), "We Belong Together" (Mariah Carey)
We Say: Mariah Carey: Seriously, did you read what we said before? Nothing in this category had the commercial or emotional impact of "We Belong Together"--this is Mariah's year.
Tab Fab Says: Mariah Carey: Hey, any song about Mariah Carey's breastesses all smooshed up is a sure winner for Song of the Year, which is why we love "We Belong Together."
