Why do we have to have an hour program to announce the nominees? Utterly Ridiculous! Just publlish the names and be done with it.

Kanye West? Really? An over-egotistical jerkface. Music is not worth anything anymore. It should be Adele. At least her music is listenable. Kanye is so self-centered, and annoying to say the least. Young people have no taste anymore.
