Comment by kabukiman[edit]

Shouldn't there be something about Alien Ant Farm crashing the 2003 Awards?---kabukiman

I thought 2006 group winner was actually BEP?!

Awards[edit]

There are more awards categories than these. Someone should add the rest of them. Lil Flip246 16:44, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Error[edit]

Destiny's Child won the "Best Group" Award in 2006, not the Black Eyed Peas. Well, that's what they said when I watched the awards a little while ago.

I saw the same thing. I will change it. 129.2.175.107 (talk) 23:09, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

June 2009 edits and more edits[edit]

After reverting a couple of edits on June 26, 2009, I realized the original edits had removed two sections related to hosts and performers. After restoring those edits, I went back and re-removed the vandalism. Please look through my edits to make sure I did them correctly. :) Flowanda | Talk 05:26, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

"and" versus &[edit]

Though this is a minor change, Some people may question when to use the ampersand and when to use the word. As a general rule of thumb, you can rule out some confusion by distuinguishing between abbreviated formats and sentences. The ampersand is perfectly okay in the blocks that list artists that perform together in that year... like (this isn't true, just an example) 2009: Eminemem & The Rascal Flats, Pete Townsend, Elvis Presly & Tina Turner, The Pips. But when used in a sentence, however, it is improper, unless it is in an offical title of something. "Beyonce & Tina Turner perfomed Wind Beneath My Wings" is improper but "And & Ampersand performed in Canada" wouldn't be, because the ampersand (&) is part of their official title... compare the same sentence if they had performed another action "Beyonce & Tina Turner went to the mall." Correctly, it is "Beyonce and Tina Turner went to the mall." Wolfpeaceful (talk) 17:32, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Clarification about Race[edit]

If the awards are for celebrating "African-Americans and other minorities", how can Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (and Eminem, and probably more) be nominated? (Macklemore received four nominations, Eminem five)? I know that the talk page is for talking about the article and not the subject matter, but I haven't been able to find an explanation and I think it's kind of a glaring omission. 198.151.130.64 (talk) 04:06, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
