Yeah I know its pretty fucking trivial and pointless to sit around discussing who should and shouldn't have been nominated, but I just want to give my two cents real quick to the most ill-advised field of all:

Best Contemporary R&B Album
(For albums containing 51% or more playing time of VOCAL tracks.)

I Am... Sasha Fierce
[Music World Music/Columbia]

Jamie Foxx
[J Records]

The Introduction Of Marcus Cooper
Pleasure P
[Swagga Ent./Atlantic]

Trey Songz

Thr33 Ringz
[Jive Records]

First off, no disrespect to any of the above artists. I have listened to all of the above albums and enjoyed them for the most part, although I can't help but feel like the following artists who really contributed to R&B both commercially and/or artistically have been left out:

The-Dream - Love Vs Money

Chrisette Michele - Epiphany

Brandy - Human

Mario - DNA

Ryan Leslie - Ryan Leslie

I can't say I didn't see this coming though. A producer I follow on twitter involved in the voting for this category had mentioned earlier in the year that the ballot sucked, and there were a whole bunch of artists left out.

Lets just let it be Beyonce's night. Its inevitable innit?
