This is going to be the first Grammy awards I've been excited for in a LONG time!

There's some stiff competition in World Albums, like this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uymTSOYYYC0&sns=em

Given that this is the first time Celtic Woman has been nominated (how the other haven't been nominated is tragic and inexplicable), I'd have to assume the what the Recording Academy values in music is different than what we might value.

We all know that as good as any other music is that was nominated, it could never touch us as deeply as Celtic Woman has.

I don't know about you, but I'm #CampaigningForDestiny from now until February starting right now.

Let them hear our voices! Let's show the Recording Academy how much we loved Destiny and how much Celtic Woman means to us.

Just to give everyone a heads up (and this is based on research,since I don't normally watch the Grammy awards):

Most of the categories aren't televised in the main program that's on TV. Instead, they're presented in a pre-show. That has been the case with World Albums in the past, apparently.

Now recently, within the past year or two, they have provided an online stream of the pre-show awards. I think it starts several hours before the main show.

I'll check for details closer to the date of the Grammy Awards in February and post here.

I believe it's called the "Premiere Ceremony",  it starts the afternoon, I think around 12PM PST, so they have a chance to get to everyone.

Now here's a fun little question!

If Celtic Woman got to perform 1 song from Destiny at the Grammys (as unlikely as that may be) what song would you want them to perform?

Also, do you think Mairead Nesbitt would go to the Grammys with the current girls?

Great questions!

I created us a poll for the first one:
http://www.celticwomanforum.com/index.php?topic=21354.0

Regarding the likelyhood, yes, it does seem unlikely. But perhaps we can tip the odds in our favor (even if it's only slightly) if we reach out to the producer (Ken Ehrlich). Can't hurt too much to ask, right?

Regarding your second question, I'm not sure how that would work. If they get to go, Mairead would certainly be there if she could. If they got to perform, I'm not sure.

Tara's is under contract.

Mairead was of course under contract when Destiny was recorded and all the years prior.

But Tara did finish the Destiny tour.

They both deserve it.

I suppose if there can only be one, Mairead "should" be the one to perform, if she was available and contractually permitted.

But if Celtic Woman had a choice, would you want to be the one to tell Tara "sorry, we'd rather Mairead perform instead of you?" I mean my goodness, that would be so devastating that just thinking about it makes me sad.  Cry

Maybe they should both perform!  Cheesy

With the second question, I meant more in terms of would Mairead N attend? Tara is the Destiny performer now. So if they performed she should be up there.

Oh. Then yes, I would think she would attend if any of them do.

That  would  be  very  fitting,  I think  to  have  our  Fairy Fiddler  present. But I was thinking of Meav  as well- given her multiple  roles.  As  for  the  song- I think Westering  Home  would  be  great.   Cool

I agree with you that Meav would be an excellent choice to participate in the performance!
