'Angel' At My Turntable

Posted on

Acts garnering the most Grammy nominations usually see huge surges after selections are announced (think Santana last year and Lauryn Hill in ’99). But as a reflection of how spread out this year’s nominations were, the top 15 was nearly nominee-free. In fact, the most notable leap belonged to Dido, who was unexpectedly shut out of the new-artist and female-vocalist categories. Still, No Angel leapt into the top 10 for the first time; its total, down from 113,000 to 87,000, was enough to boost it eight spots. The Beatles could also sing ”I’m Down” — from 451,000 to 268,000 — while remaining at the toppermost of the poppermost.
