I hope our boys win, of course, but I'm also intrigued by some of the other nods. I especially love Pink, Sugarland, Nickelback, Springsteen and...yes, Taylor Swift. Some very deserving artists up this year!

Although, I do hope Beyonce gets some sort of recognition, or Kanye's going to go ape-shit again...
