Norah Jones: Joann Savio

Here’s our pick to win Record of the Year

SURVEY SAYS Norah. ”She’s the Alicia Keys of this year,” says one A&R exec. ”She’s captured the attention of such a cross section of people.” Adds the label chief, ”She made a textbook Grammy album.” But some counter that it feels so empty without a certain white rapper. ”’Record of the Year’ is the song that you remember from this year — that’s Eminem.” And don’t waste your dime betting on Nickelback.
