The Best Musical Show Album Category At The 2009 Grammy Awards Was Made Up Almost Entirely Of Broadway Musicals Including Ain't Misbehavin', Hair, And More
Broadway Musicals Nominated For Grammy Awards
The Grammy Award nominations were announced yesterday, and the Best Musical Show Album category was almost entirely made up of Broadway musicals.
The nominated show recordings were: Ain't Misbehavin' (30th-anniversary cast recording featuring American Idol's Ruben Studdard and Frenchie Davis), Hair (Broadway revival cast album), 9 To 5 The Musical (featuring a score by country music superstar Dolly Parton), Shrek The Musical (Original Broadway cast recording), and West Side Story (new Broadway revival cast recording).
Three Shows Are Still Performing
If you want to hear what the fuss is about, three of the musicals - Hair, Shrek, and West Side Story - are still playing on Broadway. The winners of the Grammy for Best Show Album will be announced in January.
