John Legend has a really good shot at winning best new artist. He's something Grammy voters really understand.
You have to call it a comeback only because Carey's last two albums didn't do as well as her previous ones. But she's always had this amazing voice and she just needed to get the right people to guide her on the songs.
Perception is everything. Mariah was totally seen as the underdog (because) those albums were considered failures.
In an age of music where there are just so few real singers, people who not only sing well but have this amazing passion and range and raw emotion, I feel they're going to give her her just due.
