Slumdog Millionaire is still scoring and how! The Mozart of Madras has scored again! And its again a double score for A R Rahman. He was nominated in two categories for the music of Slumdog Millionaire and he scored both the Grammy Awards!

Rahman won the first Grammy in the Best Compilation Soundtrack Album for a Motion Picture Category before his Jai Ho won in the Best Song Written for Motion Picture Category moments later. Jai Ho is credited to Gulzar, A.R. Rahman & Tanvi Shah, songwriters (A.R. Rahman, Sukhvinder Singh, Tanvi Shah, Mahalaxmi Iyer & Vijay Prakash).

The other nominations in the Best Compilation Soundtrack category included Steve Jordan for Cadillac Records, Quentin Tarantino for Inglourious Basterds, and the producers of Twilight and True Blood. 

In the Best Song Category, the other nominations were  The Climb” (From Hannah Montana: The Movie) – Miley Cyrus,  Decode (From Twilight) – Paramore, Once in a Lifetime (From Cadillac Records) – Beyonce and Bruce Springsteen’s “The Wrestler” (From The Wrestler). How we were hoping against hope that The Wrestler gets it this time beacuse it surely is more deserving. And at the Oscars, it was not even nominated! But then, may be it was all written.

BTW, if you are still not bored of the so called Jai Ho dance, click the play button and enjoy!
