Adele Gets Grammy Support from Mary J. Blige, John Legend
With the Grammy Awards just two days away, artists are weighing in with their predictions.
"I'm sure an Adele fan and I love what she's done this year," Mary J. Blige told MTV News this week. "Her album was amazing. She's amazing and I'm just rooting for her. I'm rooting for everybody. But you really just want that one person to get what they deserve. Finally. And not give it to someone else [just] because. Just win all six of her awards, you know?"
John Legend, too, threw his hat in the ring for Adele.
"I'm really happy for Adele. I think she's an amazing artist and she seems to be the odds-on favorite to win a lot of awards and she deserves it," he told MTV News. "And we'll see what else happens. It's hard to call these awards. Sometimes you think you know who's going to win, but they surprise you."
Adele will make her return from throat surgery at Sunday night's show, where her nominations include Album of the Year for "21."
In the Best New Artist category, Ludacris says he's crossing his fingers for Nicki Minaj, who worked with him on 2010 single "My Chick Bad."
"I'm looking forward to seeing Nicki Minaj. I love her. I'm glad I got a chance to work with her. I'm extremely proud of her," he told MTV News. "She's just scratching the surface of what she's capable of. So Nicki: keep doing your thing, girl."
