My 3 Songs: Grammys Edition
If you haven't figured it out already, the GRAMMYS are right around the corner! We're so excited for the biggest awards show in music so we decided to spread the excitement by asking YOU which Grammy nominees have the best songs. From all the nominees, here are 3 of your picks:
Rihanna Feat. Drake - What's My Name? (submitted by Jasper Geerdink) Nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration
Hey, boy, I really wanna see / If you can go downtown with a girl like me / Hey, boy, I really wanna be with you / 'Cause you just my type, oh, na, na, na, na
We kind of feel like this song doesn't get enough recognition for how catchy, and chill it is — and it seems like at least one of you agrees with us! Though the lyrics are... less than insightful, we can't wait to see if this song takes home an award and better yet (for us) if it gets performed live!
Lady Gaga - You & I (submitted by Azealia Reynolds) Nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance
Something, something about this place / Something 'bout lonely nights and my lipstick on your face / Something, something about my cool Nebraska guy
Yep, this one's a good pick! Of all the nominees in this particular category, we really think Lady Gaga's performance (not to mention great lyrics dedicated to her former man) merits the Grammy. Hope she shares it with her ex!
Bruno Mars - Grenade (submitted by Valeria Ogorchukwu Ozongwu) Nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year
To give me all your love is all I ever asked / 'Cause what you don't understand is / I'd catch a grenade for ya
Considering this is the most-nominated of any of the other picks, we think it's a safe bet for the list! Bruno Mars perfectly conveys what he intended them to: desperation, unrequited love, and pain.
Which songs are you most likely to see performed on the Grammys? How about the ones you want to see take home a prize? You can check out the rest of the nominees here and be sure to tune into the 2012 Grammys on CBS, Sunday February 12th at 8/7c!
