    Alrighty, boys and girls. Let me cairlfy this Grammy business before things get carried away. NARAS rules stipulate that an individual is not nominated unless you make the final five. We are in the first round balloting which is open to anyone who makes the submission deadline and is a NARAS member, which is hundreds of thousands and voting has not begun yet.NARAS only considers you a nominee when you are in the top five. The five recordings that earn the most votes in each category become the nominees. There may be more than five nominees if there is a tie in the nomination process. Therefore, our chances are well, you know.
