Talk:51st Annual Grammy Awards

so when i type "51st annual grammy awards" into the search box, instead of bringing me to this article, it takes me to a search results page on which the first line of the first article is "The 51st Annual Grammy Awards...". really? could we not just have that term bring you directly here and save me a mouse click?

Redirect created, should not be a problem any longer. If you create an account, you can fix this sort of problems yourself. -Lilac Soul (talk contribs count) 20:32, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

where's the gospel field?

Why is Britney Spears confirmed as a performer; none of the references point to this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:58, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

There is also no classical field!?! Bovineboy2008 (talk) 16:14, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

  • I set up a section listing the classical winners earlier this evening with a promise to add the other nominees once I have time to chase them down, but user RobynRihannaFenty deleted it all without comment. Not seeing any reason that the classical winners are any less entitled to be listed than, say, the polka winners, I've put them back. I'd ask that if there's a problem, please fix it instead of simply engaging in unexplained deletion of the entire category. Drhoehl (talk) 01:59, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
    • I put the material back in and added some nominees, and now somebody called Firetank2 has killed it again. Why? No one seems to be willing to do more than a quick delete. Please discuss! Drhoehl (talk) 18:21, 10 February 2009 (UTC)


Why the hell are certain entries bolded for most of the categories? I don't want to change it if this means something, but it seems like some editor has gone through to select their personal favorites or their predictions to win! The awards will not take place for months. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:05, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Yeah I'm confused as well. I'm saving this to see if these predictions turn out to be correct. Leopold Stotch (talk) 04:38, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Leonia Lewis is not confirmed... I've seen here name nowhere. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:55, 5 February 2009 (UTC)


In the memorial part of the show, they left out LeRoi Moore, who died last August. There have been various news reports, here and here. I think it should be added to the article. --Son (talk) 18:02, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

I didn't see the show, so I'm not going to add this myself as I don't know enough. However, I guess a brief section with "X Y and Z were honoured in memoriam by QQQ. The arrangers have been criticized for WWW." Unless someone has objections to adding this information, I think you should just go ahead and add it with references yourself. -Lilac Soul (talk contribs count) 07:18, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Incorrect Formatting[edit]

Why is the formatting of this article not compliant with WP:MUSIC? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:08, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Care to tell us which parts are incompliant? That would make it easier to fix, if it needs fixing. Also, remember that you can edit articles yourself. -Lilac Soul (talk contribs count) 07:14, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
It wasn't so much about the doing of it, I was wondering if there was actually a reason for this? And the formatting I'm referring to is that songs should be in quotation marks and albums should be italicised, while artists should remain unquoted, nor italicised. Enboldened text s still fine to indicate the winners, though. I think WP:ALBUM is actually a better guide. But still, my question stands: is this in this formatting for a reason, or is it just due to not looking at the guide? -- (talk) 06:03, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
I too agree that all songs should be in quote marks, all albums should be in italics, and winners also in bold. I think many categories are formatted wrong because editors rushed to paste the nominees in after the announcement, and didn't bother formatting them correctly. We all can fix sections and make the whole page similar and correct. It will look a lot better then. --Mtjaws (talk) 05:45, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
I think I took care of all the wrong formatting. The Classical Field might have a few problems, but I'm not sure which are songs or albums or other. --Mtjaws (talk) 18:14, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Spoken Word?[edit]

Apparently there was a "Best Spoken Word Album" category or something to that effect. Stephen Colbert (and a few others) lost to Al Gore (winner in the category). Why is this category not listed? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Fatrb38 (talkcontribs) 04:48, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

If this is true, go ahead and add this information yourself. -Lilac Soul (talk contribs count) 07:13, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Joe Satriani[edit]

Why is he being credited under coldplay for their song of the year nomination for Viva La Vida129.74.230.182 (talk) 05:00, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Satriani has sued Coldplay for plagiarizing his song for their nominated song "Viva la Vida". But nothing has been proven yet, so he doesn't belong in the list. I have removed him. --Mtjaws (talk) 05:37, 18 February 2009 (UTC)


Can someone list the ratings for this and any others Grammy awards we can find, in particular 2000+ which should be the easiest to find.--Cooly123 00:24, 1 February 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cooly123 (talkcontribs)

Rihanna/Chris Brown incident[edit]

Shouldnt the fiasco between them should be mentioned? Or the fact that both were confirmed performerm Rihanna with Disturbia/Live Your Life feat. T.I. and Chris Brown with No Air feat. Jordan Sparks? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:16, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
