Comments: Grammy's getting senile

This is often the freakiest Grammy category. Perhaps the most notable recent example is when Shelby Lynne won it in 2001, after releasing six albums since 1989.

I blanched at this too... "Radiation Vibe" was a Top 10 Modern Rock radio single. Does that count for nothing?

But keep in mind (if I recall correctly) that No Doubt won the Best New Artist Grammy after they'd been a band for like seven or eight years.

I guess I didn't notice either of those previous instances of Grammy illogic because I'm not so much a fan of either of those acts. But yeah, apparently they've had a long history of not investigating performers when they are actually making their debuts.
