Best Male Pop Vocal-John Mayer, "Say"
Wow, I think the TV just blacked out because the gods can't believe that Mayer just beat out McCartney for an award. (Oh and the Michael McDonald Mayer thanked was his manager, not the former Doobie Brother.)
On a side note, it's nice that since Jack Black married into Charlie Haden's family the legendary, cross-genre musician is getting some more mainstream love.
