BootLeg Betty

Grammy’s By The Numbers

Mister D:I remember watching the Grammy’s when Bette won “Best New Artist”, but what I hear rarely mentioned, and this may be due to the fact that I’m wrong, is that she was also nominated as Best Female Vocalist and Album of the Year…she lost to Stevie Wonder and Roberta Flack….
