Grammys Relevant?

Pitchfork seems to think the list of Grammy nominations this year are surprisingly relevant.

They are right that BNW favorites like: Sam Sparro, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Estelle, M.I.A., Danger Mouse, Robyn, Erykah Badu, Justice, Gnarls Barkley, Lupe Fiasco, Daft Punk, Nas, Kylie Minogue, Kanye West, and T.I. are all up for awards but we still can’t shake off the fact that Rihanna’s lifeless Disturbia, two absolutely terrible singles by Madonna, an insipid Katy Perry, Flo Rida, Will.I.Am, and the entire Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals category are nominated alongside such innovative and relevant artists.

Though, if the Grammy voters voted alongside BNW it sure would make for an interesting and historic night for mainstream music.
