I meant that she could play more instruments than he could. lol. read through?


i don't know why people would compare talent, didn't he win last year anyway, and because he's achieved so much, how about letting others get that spotlight. Calm down Bieber fans. seriously. And hopefully, you listened to this even without knowing who she is and really know why she won the award. ps. she can play more instruments more than Bieber anyway.


Ms. Shalding is an amazing artist! There are many types of musical talents in this world, so give this young lady a break. Jazz is a music preference for many older adults, so chill out young people and let us enjoy Ms. Shalding music. In fact, try to be more open-minded to other types of muscial sounds and give jazz a chance -- you just might enjoy it.


ok yea the girl knows how to sing and she seems talented but im sorry justin is what 16 yrs old and look at all he has achieved. he deserved the Grammy. this is so unfair. many people do not even know who this woman is.


I'll admit that I had not heard of Esperanza Spalding until I watched the Grammy award show last night. After listening to her performance, I understand why she won. She is an amazing talent.
