Grammy Winners, A Mix
So, the Grammy's happened. That's cool. I was shocked to learn that Morgan Freeman and Kenny Chesney were friends, that Duffy wasn't a 56-year-old southern woman and that Stevie Wonder agreed to perform with the Jonas Brothers. But, really, what do I know. Oh wait, I DO know that MIA is the shit and kudos to her for showing up to the Grammy's on her due date; that's committment. Furthermore, Jay-Z, JT, TI, Lil' Wayne and Al Green are also the shit.
Here are the results from the 51st Grammy Awards for the categories that seem most interesting and an MP3 from each artist who won.
