      If you saw last night’s Grammys, you probably noticed that Mary J Blige gave a very long acceptance speech the first time she took the stage to receive a trophy. Apparently, MJB didn’t expect to win again that night, hence the endless list of shout-outs. Well, it turns out Blige would dominate the R&B categories. She won for “Best R&B Album” and “Best R&B Song.”

      On the hip-hop end, Atlanta’s T.I. and Ludacris picked up two trophies each. Ludacris walked home with the biggest rap recognition for “Best Rap Album,” presented by Common and past winner Kanye West.
