Nominations of 52nd Grammy Awards : Beyonce Leads with 10 Nominations


Akhirnya, daftar nominasi 52nd Grammy Awards pun dibeberkan dan tidak disangka artis-artis dengan single komersil yang biasanya merajai berbagai chart mampu mendominasi di daftar nominasi kali ini. Entah mengapa selera juri grammy kali ini berubah, menengok grammy tahun lalu patokan selera juri grammy pasti “yang enggak gue banget”, lihat saja pemenang grammy terbanyak tahun lalu Bruce Springten and Allison Kraust yang lagunya amat ‘old opa-opa’ ternyata amat digemari para juri grammy ketimbang single berbau komersil seperti Leona Lewis. Nah ada yang tahu kenapa selera juri grammy berbeda kali ini? Tengok saja para nominee untuk 52nd Grammy Award, ada Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Maxwell, Kaye West, Black Eyed Peas dan masih banyak artis yang kamu kenal tentunya. Beyonce kali ini memimpin nominasi grammy dengan mengantongi 10 nominasi, disusul Taylor Swift dengan 8 nominasi sertaBlack Eyed Peas, Kanye West dan Maxwell masing-masing sama 6 nominasi. Untung penyanyi favorit saya Lady Gaga berhasil mengantongi 5 nominasi saja, ya tentunya saya sangat menjagokan dirinya memborong grammy tersebut. Namun mengingat Beyonce tampil begitu cemerlang dengan album I am…Sasha Fercia-nya itu, tentunya membuat langkah Gaga bahkan Swift pun agak berat. Kemungkinan Beyonce lah yang akan menjadi Lady of Grammy untuk 52nd Grammy Awards mendatang, perhaps? Nantikan saja tanggal 31 Januari 2010....

Record Of The Year

• Halo
Beyoncé
• I Gotta Feeling
The Black Eyed Peas

• Use Somebody
Kings Of Leon

• Poker Face
Lady Gaga

• You Belong With Me
Taylor Swift

Prediction : Lady Gaga – Poker Face (dengan alasan saya fansholic-nya jadi ngarep banget doi menang, memang dengan rival sekelas beyonce, saya masih berharap ada keajaiban buat Gaga)
Alternative : TayLor Swift – You Belong With me
Beyonce – Halo
(*)PS ; Entah kenapa saya punya feeling kuat kalo yang menang bakal Taylor, karena memang yang nampang lagu You Belong With Me bukannya Love Story, jadi materi recordingnya ini sudah dijamin ciamik dan sangat excited mendengar perpaduan musik country dan instrument Skotlandia dan sebenarnya Beyonce juga enggak bisa dipandang remeh, tapi kalo misalnya yang dinominasikan Single Ladies pasti saya optimis bakal menang degh)

Best New Artist

• Zac Brown Band

• Keri Hilson

• MGMT

• Silversun Pickups

• The Ting Tings
Prediction : The Ting Tings
Alternative : –
(*) PS: sangat aneh di kategori best new artist ini, padahal The Ting Tings dan Keri Hilson udah enggak New Artist lagi, kan mereka udah lama banget keluar debutnya. Saya lebih setuju kalau mereka dinominasikan tahun lalu. Saya tidak mengerti dengan penilaian grammy.!!

Best Female Pop Vocal Performance

• Hometown Glory
Adele

• Halo
Beyoncé

• Hot N Cold
Katy Perry

• Sober
Pink

• You Belong With Me
Taylor Swift

Prediction : Hometown Glory – Adele
Alternative : Sober – Pink
Halo – Beyoncé

(*) PS : sebenarnya saya masih kesulitan memprediksi kategori ini, tahun lalu saya memprediksikan Leona Lewis yg membawa grammy, itung-itungannya sih karena suara doi berkualitas tinggi. But juri grammy lebih memilih keunikan suara Adele. Nah saya sih masih mengira Adele bakal membawa grammy lagi tahun ini, meski ada Beyonce yang tidak tertandingi (saya selalu takut kalo doi nyelip di berbagai nominasi). Yah saya coba alternatifkan juaranya si Pink dan urutan kedua kemungkinan Beyonce (bias saja beyonce yang dapat nih!)

Best Male Pop Vocal Performance

• This Time
John Legend

• Love You
Maxwell

• Make It Mine
Jason Mraz

• If You Don’t Know Me By Now
Seal

• All About The Love Again
Stevie Wonder
Prediction : Make It Mine – Jason Mraz
Alternative : This Time – John Legend
All About The Love Again – Stevie Wonder
(*) PS : oh, sayangnya John Mayer tidak masuk grammy tahun ini, yaialah albumnya aja baru keluar baru-baru ini. Oke buat Jason Mraz gunakanlah kesempatan keduamu untuk ngedapetin grammy, mumpung Mayer enggak nongol. John legend cukup beruntung masuk nominasi, coz saya denger-denger album evolvernya mengalami kemunduran dari segi musikalitas. Ooo, si om Stevie Wonder juga masuk nominasi, jangan diremehkan senior itu!

• I Gotta Feeling
The Black Eyed Peas

Prediction : Baby, It’s Cold Outside – Willie Nelson & Norah Jones
Alternative : Lucky – Jason Mraz & Colbie Caillat
(*)PS : Ya, karena ada embel-embel norah jones jadi saya memilih single Baby, It’s Cold Outside yang menang. Dan mungkin single Lucky dari Mraz dan Caillat bisa dijadikan alternative juara. Mungkin yang saya tidak suaka single Breathe masuk nominasi ini, karena kesan duet antara Swift dan Caillat kurang greget, apalah artinya jika suara Swift yang mendominasi sementara suara Colbie tertindih dan doi kayaknya Cuma kedengeran genjrengan gitarnya, hehehehe!!
