scottTotal Music Awards was created by Scott Shetler, a Seattle-based freelance journalist who has worked for newspapers, music blogs, and publicity and booking agencies. He is a Grammy expert who finds the awards endlessly fascinating, even though he is often puzzled by their selections.

His favorite Grammy performances include Annie Lennox dressed as Elvis Presley singing “Sweet Dreams” with the Eurythmics in 1984, Pink dangling from the ceiling on “Glitter in the Air” in 2010, and Aretha Franklin stepping in for Pavarotti in 1998 to sing “Nessun Dorma.”
