The Confessions Tour nominated at the 50th Grammy Awards
As MadonnaTribe readers remember, The Confessions Tour by Madonna was submitted for consideration for nomination for Best Long Form Music Video at the 50th Grammy Awards back in October, in the first step of a process where entries are submitted and then screened for eligibility and category placement.
