Hey, who doesn't love Minnie Ripperton? But a Grammy nomination off of doing what amounts to a smooth jazz version of a song? How far we've fallen! Again, I can tell that Wayna has vocal ability, so I'm not dogging her in that department. In fact, she sings as if she's been classically trained. That's commendable. But is that what it takes to be "alternative" these days? The ability to enunciate?
If Janelle doesn't win this. . .
