I really don’t understand who the Grammys are supposed to appeal to. I mean, the show itself is clearly aimed towards fans of pop music, with a few performances thrown in for mom and dad just in case they have to share the TV when the show is on… but when it comes to the awards themselves, what is it they’re trying to achieve? Are they giving awards to pop stars, or to indie groups or people generally closer to being considered true “artists” than the standard Billboard chart toppers? I don’t believe it can be both. Watch the video below for more.
