Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee was among the announcers at last week’s Grammy nominations press conference in L.A., and while her band was shut out of nominations this year for the chart-topping album, ‘The Open Door,’ Lee was happy to support her fellow artists.
“What’s really cool about the Grammys is it’s about musicianship and talent,” she told AOL Music. “It’s great to see James Blunt nominated and wonderful to see Mary J. Blige nominated. She’s still so strong after all this time and I’m a big fan. And Justin Timberlake, too. What he’s doing is really innovative and cool.”
Given her past Grammy success as a two-time winner, what’s her favorite Grammy moment? The answer might surprise. “Maybe now is my favorite Grammy moment,” she says. “It’s cool now ’cause I don’t feel so much like I don’t belong here, or that I don’t know what to do or how to smile without looking sheepish. I feel like, ‘Alright, I can do this.’ There are people that are younger than me and haven’t done this before.”
