JUST WHAT THE GRAMMYS NEED - ANOTHER CATEGORY: I mean, we're delighted that Hawaiian music is doing well and being officially recognised, but since the Grammys already roll on for about four and half days anyway, is adding an extra few awards to stretch it out a bit. The belief that adding a separate award section (away from traditional and folk) would help promote the genre seems a bit wonkily-thought out - if you stretch the time between giving awards to Jon Bon Jovi much further, the numbers of people registering the whole non-rock segments at all are going to sink to about zero; and that will be before, say, Rhode Islanders demand a special category for their state's own flavour of musical heritage.
