Someone was in high spirits last night.
Zero Gravity at Anaheim (thanks, Peter! Where did that spin come from? haha!):
Fields of Gold (this keeps getting better):
In other news, here’s the Complete List of Grammy nominations
Alas, David is not on it, but that’s okay – there is always next year! Still, it kinda sucks that songs like “Somebody Out There” didn’t get a chance. Seriously, Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me” as record of the year?! Really?!?! Of course, the news story is the “surprise” in not seeing David Cook nominated for Best New Artist. I dunno – maybe because I’ve been so caught up in the Archuworld that 1) I didn’t notice Cook was still around and 2) color me completely unsurprised that Cook failed to get a Best New Artist nomination. What exactly did he do this year that was earth-shattering in his debut?
Just because “America” chose the generic over the sublime certainly doesn’t mean the Grammy committee will follow. David just needs phenomenal music productions to match his phenomenal Voice before he finally gets the critical acclaim he deserves. See FOG as a case in point.
