I was expecting only 3 awards tbh.

What's annoying are some of the comments on the internet. As usual after the Soultrain Awards, some are complaining that black artists get snubbed in favour of white ones which do "black" music (aka Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, and yes, Bruno Mars). Like... come on! I get it, he's not "African" enough for you, but don't act as if the guy is lily white! Here we have a "racially ambiguous" guy with brown skin and curly hair, and some people wanna act as if he enjoys white privilege. He put out a damn good R&B album with both critical acclaim and good sales, of course he's gonna sweep the awards.
True that's the best scene in the video, I actually never saw the video for the song Cranes In The Sky. Not even going to add something, 100% true :)

It would have been better if TWIL music video won instead of 24k magic.
Seven number ones on Billboard Hot 100 and fourteen top ten hits since 2010/ Bruno Mars.

The instrumental they are playing belongs to which song? I know it, but I can't get a grasp of it

I was shocked to see the album nominated for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical :o :o :o

Like, when I listen to the LP I always notice how it's greatly mastered, and that its sonic quality is pretty impressive. But this is huge :o

I suspect it might be a long shot, but I'm hoping this wins album of the year at the Grammys.
Franklin’s music profoundly touched and changed the world, because over and over it offered that bridge to salvation, to freedom.

It is? I didn't saw that, Tom coyne has passed away it was one of the last albums he mastered by himself only, perhaps even the last. It's more of an homage than anything else, the award won't go for bruno

DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMN :o :o
I don't wanna say... I told you you so... but
I TOLD YOU SO!!! 8-)

Ed, who?! It always made me laugh when people acted as if he'd be able to compete with Bruno's at the Grammys... as If. :lol:
The Weeknd was also paid dust....

Yay he's everywhere where he supposed to be in rnb field. EVERYWHERE in GF and let me just say seeing the album in Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical) and
The Stereotypes in Producer Of The Year is a really good sign but shh :wink:
Only submitting both vids for VOTY backfired...oh well you can't have everything... :P

He is getting AMAZING reviews from both critics and listeners for his Apollo special. Let me watch it later when I the video is up on YouTube.

I think his next album is gonna get big first week sales. I feel like he's gained so many new fans from this era, especially from the R&B audience and I hope he continues to embrace the sound.

Me wants, me wants! :o

The Apollo special was fantastic, but shorter than I imagined. Anyway, the Brunz once again proves that he is a true entertainer! So much charisma and talent oozing from that stage.

The special was great. It was basically a truncated version of the tour, but with some funny skits in-between. But he killed it. "Calling All of My Lovelies" with that guitar solo >>>>> :cry:
