MJB Pulling for Adele at 54th Annual Grammy Awards
Tonight is the 54th Annual Grammy Awards and hopefully it'll be a great night for Adele, who is nominated for six awards this year. The young impresaria will be performing at the show for the first time since throat surgery in November, and I am looking forward to watching. MTV recently interviewed another favorite singer of mine, Ms. Mary J. Blige, who threw her hat into the ring for Adele:
"I'm sure an Adele fan and I love what she's done this year. Her album was amazing. She's amazing and I'm just rooting for her. I'm rooting for everybody. But you really just want that one person to get what they deserve. Finally. And not give it to someone else [just] because. Just win all six of her awards, you know?"
I love it when artists openly appreciate other artists for the work that they do. To me it's classy and I think it's really cool that MJB loves Adele, too!
Here are the six award categories in which Adele is nominated:
Record of the Year - "Rolling in the Deep"
Album of the Year - "21"
Song of the Year - "Rolling in the Deep"
Best Pop Solo Performance - "Someone Like You"
Best Pop Vocal Album - "21"
Best Short Form Music Video - "Rolling in the Deep"

NOTE: On short notice, there will be a special tribute to Whitney Houston at tonight's show featuring Jennifer Hudson. Houston won six Grammy's during her career and had been nominated a staggering twenty-six times overall. This show is definitely being DVRed, lol.
