Esperanza Spalding.

……..What are your guesses?

I’m not a big fan of Eminem, however, every time I turned on the radio this year, his work would be playing on every radio station.  So kudo’s to him on his efforts in 2010.

I would love to see Katy Perry, Adam Lambert (who I seen at Whambam 2010), and Lady Gaga recognized for all of their fine efforts this year.   These artists have worked their asses off touring and promoting their albums.
I anticipate that Lady Gaga’s new song “Born this Way” will be a highlight of the evening as well as Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never” movie release.   I was never a big Bieber fan, however, after seeing his movie, I have a new found respect for a fellow neighbour from Stratford, Ontario.
Stay tuned as I will be glued to the television and giving my fashion comments as they walk the Red Carpet at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards.
