Kings of Leon, U2, Green Day face-off in 2010 Grammy predictions for Best Rock Performance:
As we continue to look at the upcoming Grammy Awards, today we look at the contenders for Best rock performance by a duo or group with vocals.
Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals
Green Day, “21 Guns”
Kings of Leon, “Use Somebody”
U2, “I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight”
Why is a live recording of a 40-year old song in here? It doesn’t seem fair to me. Or why don’t the Grammys start a live category since they also saw fit to nominate Hall & Oates’ live version of “Sara Smile” for best pop performance by a duo or group with vocals. There are deserving acts that should have gotten that slot, such as Ben Harper & the Relentless 7. Otherwise, there’s little padding here. Coldplay’s year was last year, so this is a three-way race between Green day, Kings of Leon and U2. Perennial faves U2 may snare the trophy if too many geezers vote, but Kings of Leon 100% deserves the Grammy, as much as we adore Green Day. “Use Somebody” has a great vocal performance by Caleb Followil and it was one of the biggest rock hits of the year.
The Grammys goes to: Kings of Leon, “Use Somebody.”
