It's that time of year again where the top artists of 2012 are nominated for Grammy awards.  These awards are supposed to recognize artistic merit and not put too much emphasis on popularity or album sales.  This year, Brendan Spaar feels that was achieved by a few "surprise" snubs.
One Direction, Psy, Justin Bieber and the Wanted did not receive Grammy nominations and the internet is in a tizzy!  None of these artists have done anything revolutionary in 2012.  Bieber, One Direction, and The Wanted crank out manufactured pop songs like water.  Psy took the world by storm because his song was so outragous that we had to see and hear it for shock value.  Do any of these artists deserve an award for the work that they did?  Probably not.  To show that they didn't snub all manufactured pop artists and internet sensations, the Recording Industry nominated Carly Rae Jepsen for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.  This high school girl may not have been discovered if Bieber hadn't tweeted out her song to his millions of followers. 
Another weird category this year is Alternative Music.  Somehow Gotye's Making Mirrors album ended up on the list of Best Alternative Albums of 2012.  Sure Gotye is a talented artist but does he really belong in an Altermative Music category?
