R+B superstar Usher is determined to turn all eight of his GRAMMY AWARD nominations into victorious statuettes at this Yeah?r's (13FEB05) prestigious ceremony.

The 26-year-old heart-throb dominates this year's prize-giving - with nods in categories like Album Of The Year, Record Of The Year and Best R+B Song - but he'll only be happy if he scoops every one.

The YEAH! singer says, "I'm getting nervous the closer I get to it. I've never had a more powerful year, in music and entertainment and television. Man, CONFESSIONS has dominated the charts as well as dominated television, so I just hope that, in the voting, people recognise it.

"I'm a responsible owner. If you give me all eight Grammys, trust me, I'll be responsible. You won't hear about me in the newspaper."
