"It’s not overly cynical to suggest the Grammys have very little to do with artistic merit—and that’s totally fine. That’s not what they’re for.
The awards are acknowledgments for the songs, albums and performers who made the most indelible impact upon the zeitgeist in the past year. Did it wind up as a psych-up song snippet played at NBA games? It’s probably nominated for a Grammy.”
