Grammys: Fogeys, Brits, and Effed-Up Fashion

by

Our pals at Scandalist have been scrounging around Grammyville, reminding us of a few oddities that have taken place with the big show over the years.

Like: When there are several youngster nominees and only one oldster nominee, the wrinkled guy has a decent shot because the new kids kind a cancel each other out.

Like: The Record of the Year category has a wealth of Brit nominees this year.

Like: The fashions worn by the nominees and winners in 1999 are pretty damn funny to glance at these days.

Jump into the site and check their explanations for all these twists. Scandalist is posting on this year’s Grammys show every day this week.

And while we’re on the subject, did you know that overzealous guitar whiz Joe Satriani has abandoned his legal ambush of Coldplay the night of the show? And did you know that the tatooed love boys of Blink 182 are reuniting to spend some quality time together on Sunday? And did you know that chart queen Taylor Swift loves to talk about her childhood?

PS: Country Music Television is premiering Ms Swift’s new video for “White Horse” this Saturday.
