0 50th Annual Grammy Grab to Spotlight Great R&B

There a 7 R&B categories in the 50th Annual Grammy Awards to be held Sunday, February 10th, 2008, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Eligible music was released between October 1, 2006 through September 30, 2007.

Once upon a time the Grammy honorees shared about 26 awards each year. Now with over 100 categories and enough awards to stroke everyone's ego, the special nature of winning has been watered down.

If all of the nominated records in the Best R&B album category are new productions, rather than reissues, then what's the difference between this category and the Best Contemporary R&B album?

Maybe it's an artificial separation between some old school and new school performers.

Here are 5 of the 7 R&B categories and the nominees:
