: So, Norah Jones wins 5 Grammys? I have to ask the question - Is Waking Hour eligible for some hardware at the Grammys next year? I know I'm kinda biased on this one, but Vienna wins New Artist, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year if I have a vote in 2004.
I don't know how eligibility is determined for such an award, but I suspect the artist probably has to be backed by a large record company. The Grammy Awards have a long history of giving New Artist awards to people that have maybe one good album or song and disappear, while overlooking real talent that has staying power. In that regard, Vienna doesn't need the Grammys. I believe she is on her way to gathering a solid fan base. Winning a New Artist of the Year award brings on a whole new set of pressures.
We will see how Norah Jones fares after winning her awards. (I did not know that Norah Jones is Ravi Shankar's daughter).
