Grammy Submission Thread

A thread to discuss who is submitted where, what their odds are and who was left out (and “that was a really odd choice”). We’ll be collecting submissions in the main post. The lists are long, so this will take some time. Submissions will start appearing after the jump.

If I miss a name, please let us know and we’ll update. Only human and all that. Apologies in advance.

None, but Kelly was at the Live Earth and other Idols might be at other concerts under Various.

Sorry, I have to run and didn’t have time to post all the categories. R&B are probably the only categories missing that Idols have a chance in (I’m thinking “None” for RAP and Polka, but you never know). Keep posting your updates and I’ll collect them all later. Thanks!
