In their inimitably vexing fashion, Grammy voters once again have skirted that fine line between good taste and cluelessness in their R&B nominees. Last year was, in fact, a fairly strong one for R&B, and it wasn't all found on the margins, either. For every emergent talent like Jill Scott, there were striking smash singles from Sisqo and D'Angelo. In other words, there was plenty for the voters to choose from, and they mercifully didn't overlook obvious picks.
