Yeah, you need to convince me that there are some kind of "critics" behind these nominations.

It was tough enough tracking all the nominations down. I'm assuming the ET staff came up with them, but I guess there isn't any way I can really confirm that.

It probably was the ET staff. It's just that it looks 100% reader-pleasing and not something legit critics would actually recommend.

I'd say it's a little like VH1's best '80s/'90s songs nominations (which are on AM): recognizable enough for audiences, but still considered, by and large, to be good (mostly). The presence of "Idioteque" and "Jesus Walks" gives it a bit more of a critical edge (I'd say "Rebellion (Lies)" and "1234" would as well, but this is Canada, where both became bigger hits than in America). Not to mention having Eminem's representative song be "Stan" instead of the more commercially successful "Lose Yourself" or "The Real Slim Shady."
