Grammys: Taylor Swift’s off key singing, the Michael Jackson tribute

Take the Grammy album of the year survey

The 52nd annual Grammy Awards are coming up this Sunday. But before then I thought I’d let you, the readers, weigh in. I just posted a survey over on the left hand side of the page asking your pick for album of the year. Should it be Dave Matthews? Taylor Swift? Lady Gaga? Or maybe you don’t like any of the above.

Or maybe you think its bollocks that Maxwell and Phoenix didn’t make it on the ballot. Leave write-in votes in the comments section since there’s no spot for ‘em on the survey. (Sorry, the little
