Grammy Awards sure to offer plenty of music, and now you can dance to it

Groove To This

Joey Guerra

Maybe it's the fact that your vote really isn't going to affect the outcome. Maybe it's just spring semester blues. Or maybe it's the fact that the Grammys are nothing more than an overblown, self-congratulatory snooze-fest.

Whatever the reason, no one cared to submit their votes for Dance Recording and Remixer of the Year, both of which will be presented at tonight's Grammy awards show. If you read this column, you have to possess at least a smidgen of interest in dance music, but, alas, only one faithful reader presented me with his picks for who should win the awards.

With that in mind, I'll let you know what his picks were, along with a couple of insightful comments, after another look at who's up for the awards tonight:
