Live Coverage Grammy Awards: Winners and Nominees at the 2013 Grammys

I can remember all of my Grammy viewing experiences, at least the more recent ones. The award show excites me just that much. I know all of the ex boyfriends I've snuggled with, dorm floors I've sat on huddled around one tiny television, big ole fancy viewing parties I've attended, and all of the regrettable hangovers the next day, because for some reason award shows are kind of like holidays and you feel obligated (or obliged, not sure yet) to indulge in life's vices.

This year I'm particularly excited because I feel like I've actually got a horse in this race, so to speak. In reviewing the nominees, I realized that I don't think I've ever been such a big fan of so many of the nominated artists. Perhaps that comes with getting older, in that maybe I finally listen to "grown up music," and am becoming more part of the target Grammy demographic. I'd like to think that it's the other way around though, and perhaps the Grammy association is becoming a little less stiff, and representing more youth culture.

I think probably two of my favorite Grammy moments of the past few years where when Alison Krauss and Robert Plant won Album of the Year for Raising Sands in 2009, and when Arcade Fire won the same award for Suburbs in 2011. The former I loved because a) that was one hell of a colab between those two, and b) it was about damn time someone brought the country/folk and rock communities together, and then got one of the music industry's highest honors for doing so. The latter I loved because a) I love Arcade Fire, and b) how big of a LOL we all had when every one's mom, dad, and cousin was all "Who's Arcade Fire?" But this year there are so many fantastic possibilities for who might win. From Jack White (please, please, please!), to the Avett Brothers, and Mumford and Sons, to fun. (ugh I hate that they spell their name that way) there are a lot of very popular bands for millennials, and it will be interesting to see what happens. So check in to PolicyMic to read our live coverage, my most likely multiple winks at Jack White, and probably a bitchy, boozy rant about why people keep asking Taylor Swift to preform live, poor thing.
