    Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duet or Group: “Life in Technicolor II” – Coldplay (Chris Martin’s voice still gives me chills)

    Best Rock Song: “I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight” – U2 (Although KoL with Use Somebody will probably win it…)

    Best Alternative Music Album: “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix” – Phoenix (One of my favorite albums this year)

    Best Female Vocal R&B Performance: “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” Beyonce (I’ll bite the bullet and give her this one)

    Best R&B Song: “Blame It” – Jamie Foxx (Pretty good song, the video features an all star cast)

    Best Rap Solo Performance: Beautiful – Eminem (Incredible comeback album, “Relapse” is underrated)
