Jewish Grammy Awards ?

According to this article there seems to be a push for a creation of the Jewish Grammy!
Dec. 6th:Avril Lavigne's guitarist Evan Taubenfeld is the cover boy for a new pop culture print magazine for Jewish teens that is an outgrowth of the popular webzine. Riffing about his Bar Mitzvah and life on the road with his friend Avril, the exclusive Tauberfeld interview appears along with the JVibe Magazine challenge and petition to the Recording Academy to finally establish a Jewish music category along with the existing half dozen Christian Music Grammy Awards.
"It took 15 years for the newly-created Hawaiian Music Award to be established," observes JVibe publisher Yossi Abramowitz. "There will be a Jewish Grammy in 15 months." Adds JVibe senior editor Josh Eagle: "Jewish hip-hop and rock has hit a new high. It is going to be uncomfortable to try to justify to legions of Jewish teens and others why a new Grammy would not be established."
The nominations for the 47th Grammy Awards are being announced today in Los Angeles, and the first night of Hanukkah begins at sundown today.

What's next I ask?
