    I will say that 2013's Best Traditional R&B Performance was super competitive. The award could have gone to any of the performers, and it would have been deserved...

    Nominees:
    Anita Baker – Lately
    Beyonce – Love On Top ***WINNER***
    Melanie Fiona – Wrong Side of a Love Song
    Gregory Porter – Real Good Hands
    SWV – If Only You Knew

    All were OUTSTANDING vocal performances. I struggled to pick a winner. Beyonce deserved the win, but so did everyone else.

    I feel like Madonna was way too overlooked / snubbed at the Grammys prior to "Ray of light" , like its shocking to think "Like a prayer" was largely snubbed and that a song like "Vogue" didn't make Record of the year despite being an ultimate defining recording from 1990.

    Also I remember being almost sure that "Toxic" was gonna get nominated for Record of the year and I was surprised when it was just snubbed (IMO its the only ocassion Britney's been close for Record of the year) , at the year end mediatraffic chart you can see "Toxic" was one of the Top 5 biggest recordings of the entire year and was the biggest female song of 2004, it was one of the ultimate and defining songs from 2004. I was relieved when it won the Best dance recording award but I still think its absense on the Record of the year category was kind of a snub.

    Lets not forget that nowadays, songs such as Meghan Trainor's "All about that bass", Taylor Swift's "Shake it off" or even Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" get Record of the year nominations with ease. Our well timeless sisters "Vogue" and "Toxic" deserved that nod, IMO.

    Well these were the nominees that year:

    - "Here We Go Again" by Ray Charles featuring Norah Jones (won)
    - "Let's Get It Started" by The Black Eyed Peas
    - "American Idiot" by Green Day
    - "Heaven" by Los Lonely Boys
    - "Yeah" by Usher featuring Lil Jon & Ludacris
    Honestly, I don't see how "Lets get it started" was a bigger thing than "Toxic" musically, commercially or impact wise, especially after how "Toxic" has been one of the most acclaimed singles from the previous decade on every single list. I also disagree with "Heaven" from Los Lonely Boys making it.

    If "All about that bass" can get nominated ...

    Lauryn Hill's 5 win victory was so well deserved and a huge moment in music. It showed that the Academy was starting to open up towards honoring R&B artist outside of the genre categories. The impact of her album is still felt today.

    Too bad no black woman has won AOTY since. Kween definitely deserved it in 2006 for Emancipation and Lemonade had it in the bag last year!

    It is beyond me how Mariah has never won a "Pop Vocal Performance" award after "Vision Of Love" in 1991 throughout all the years

    "Emotions" is basically the definition of a winning song for that category.

    Prince not winning AOTY for Purple Rain is a complete tragedy. I know Lionel was big, but hell no. Over Purple Rain?

    It always bothered me that Usher and Alicia Keys' My Boo beat DC's Lose My Breath to a Grammy.

    One of the biggest snubs of the Grammys is Katy Perry. The number of #1 hits she's had - some pop gold - and she has never been awarded a single Grammy. Terrible. The Teenage Dream era was almost flawless.

    And on the subject of Katy, one of my favourite Grammy performance is her Teenagr Dream/Not Like The Movies performance.
