Grammys, Prayer, Women and Dylan

Was anyone else perturbed by the Feb. 20 Grammy telecast? It seemed to me that the show degraded women and their talent by presenting all five of the male vocal performance awards during the telecast but only one female.

Pop, rock, R&B;, jazz and country male performance categories were all fully shown, with nominees and speeches. Only the pop female award, given to Mariah Carey, was in the broadcast.

I hope the Grammy show will be more responsible next year and balance the awards better. If it doesn't, it will have more Sinead O'Connors to deal with in the years to come.
