    This moment is very bitter sweet for me, this is why.... I am so elated that my guys have FINALLY gotten the recogntion for their accomplishments!!!!!!!! On the other hand I am broken-hearted and pissed off might I add because Johnny Gill wasn't nominated for "Still Winning"!!!!!!!!!! That man poured his heart, blood, sweat, and tear out in that album!!!! He is a REAL R&B icon and legend. But for him to be looked over from guys like Miguel and Frank Ocean is truly INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm pretty damn sure things would be a little different if Don Cornellius was still here.

    My mom had this to say .... New Edition deserves to be nominated, but so does Johnny Gill. His new album "Still Winning" is AWESOME!!!!! His fabulous voice blows me away everytime!!! You don't just ignore a LEGEND like JOHNNY GILL!!!!! He is true Soul every ounce of him. If Don Cornelious God rest his soul, were alive this would not be happening. Hip Hop is NOT SOUL or OLD SCHOOL!!! You all should be ashamed!!!!!!! My friends and I are boycotting the Awards MAD AS H*LL!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is long overdue. They are one of the last groups that have the remaining members live and direct and I'm glad that a award show is finally going to appreciate them and their contribution to the music industry. What I am NOT ok with or understanding is that they are individually not getting recognized. Like Johnny Gill's "Still Winning" or Bobby Brown's "Masterpiece" These men took there time and and made sure that everything was just right for us, lovers of music. I don't see how people that email tracks to one another can get recognized than people who are actually in the studio pouring there all into it. They need to make another category just for the veterans that are back in the game that have better singles than people that nominnated to get recognized as well.
