    I can’t wait until next year when Carrie Underwood will, without a doubt, sweep all the major Grammy awards. Her album has gone Double Platinum and right now, she’s the biggest star in the world.

    It was nice to see Kelly win but she’s no Carrie, and Carrie will be bringing home a wheelbarrow full of them next year.

    Maybe Kelly didn’t thank AI because it didn’t help her at all. Simon says nasty things about her. When she won, they put out one lame CD and then wouldn’t return her phone calls. Why does she need them?
