It is too bad that they don't ditch the generally worthless regular
Grammy Awards telecast and instead broadcast the "special
invitation-only ceremony" for these honorees. These worthy people don't
even get asked up to the stage in the televised ceremony -- barely get a
mention going into commercial breaks. Instead of their music we will
hear rap crap.
