Usher Focuses On Album Grammy

R+B star USHER has one major musical ambition - he's desperate to win the coveted Album Of The Year GRAMMY next month (FEB05).

The YOU MAKE ME WANNA singer enjoyed a phenomenally successful 2004 and to date has picked up AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS, BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS and TEEN CHOICE gongs among others, for his best-selling disc CONFESSIONS.

During an interview with music site EURWEB, Usher insisted he never tires of being recognised for his musical achievements.

He says, "I'm crazy, but I'm not that crazy. I'm not about to dis (criticise) any award shows.

"I love the awards, bring them on. One wasn't better than the other, but the one award that I would like to receive this year would be the Album of the Year Grammy. That would be an award to remember."

Usher is set to fight KANYE WEST's THE COLLEGE DROPOUT, RAY CHARLES' GENIUS LOVES COMPANY, GREEN DAY's AMERICAN IDIOT and ALICIA KEYS' THE DIARY OF ALICIA KEYS for the coveted gong at the 13 February (05) ceremony.
