Taylor Swift was one of the queens of the night as she won 4 Grammy’s on the recently concluded 52nd Grammy Awards. The question is now this. Does she really deserve all those 4 awards (including the broken one)?
Swift won Best Country Album, Best Female Country Vocal Performance, Best Country Song and the top prize of the night – Album of the Year. As she was up against tough and MORE DESERVING competitors, she proved to be triumphant in her nominations. Did she really deserve all those awards – let alone nominations? The quick reply is NO.
Let’s start off with Best Female Country Vocal Performance. First of all, Taylor Swift is just one of those teenyboppers who can’t sing; thus, she associates herself with the country genre even though she doesn’t sound that country at all. She’s merely a teenybopper who sings country songs. This award had her up against Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and the 3-time consecutive winner, Ms. Carrie Underwood. Those 3 deserve the award more than she did. I couldn’t even listen to White Horse without covering my ears because of that annoying voice. Carrie’s Just a Dream was in fact better. Maybe yet, Any Country Song > White Horse. Horse wasn’t that impressive.
Best Country Song goes to… Taylor Swift’s White Horse. WHAT? Lady Antebellum had that award written all over. As I said, White Horse isn’t worth any award.
Best Country Album goes to.. Taylor Swift’s Fearless. BOO. The tracks are unbearable to listen. Too much melodrama. Can’t you have anything else? Besides, the country’s not really that country compared to the others. It’s too poppy.
Surprise, Surprise! Album of the Year goes to Taylor Swift’s Fearless once again! WHAT?! This is surely the BIGGEST disappointment of the evening. I was expecting the guys who scored a US No. 1 to bag the award. Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce and Gaga. B.E.P. may have had abused the auto-tune system, but their infectious tunes, including Boom Boom Pow and I Gotta Feeling, surely can’t be denied. Beyonce’s I Am… Sasha Fierce was surely awesome. Having spawned awesome ballads and hooky dance songs which produced a number of parodies on YouTube, who wouldn’t expect this to win? Lastly and surely not the least, Gaga who,with her album, has changed the face of pop music and raised the bar to a whole new level. With hits like Just Dance and Poker Face which got the whole world dance and see that Gaga is a force to be reckoned with, who wouldn’t believe that this one lost? She converted haters into fans, brought metal lovers into her zone and prove to be versatile in her performances like the notable ballad Brown Eyes. Why did The Fame lose to some teenybop Fearless?
The only answer on as to why she won was because of the judges’ sympathy. Why? They thought the Kanye thing during the MTV VMAs was so dramatic and so sad for her and they felt awful for the poor girl. Because of that incident that caused so much buzz from the media, many became fans of Taylor and haters of Kanye. The judges thought it would make her happy if she won such award considering the Grammy’s stature in the music industry. This just proves that the Grammy’s isn’t that credible any more. To think that the judges were supposed to be people who had brains [well excluding you Randy J who asked the eople on Twitter because you can’t think]
Glad you broke that Gramophone trophy, Taylor. That just shows that even fate thinks you’re undeserving of your award.
Where’s Kanye when you needed him?
