Coming Back With Grammys Week: Pop, R and B, etc.

I go for a good pop song as much as anyone, as long as it's got some originality, creativity, and artistry to it.  Cookie-cutter music doesn't quite cut it for me.

The same goes for R&B, soul, dance, all the rest.

I can be tough to please when it comes to music.

But I'd be raked over the coals if I went through this week in which I give some attention to the 2013 Grammy Award winners without paying some attention to those genres as well.  I'm still picky.

You'll just have to bear with me while I check out ...

Pop vocal album: "Stronger," Kelly Clarkson.
R&B performance: "Climax," Usher.
Traditional R&B performance: "Love on Top," Beyonce.
