Our forum posters have been busy dishing the announcement of the nominees for the 55th annual Grammy Awards. Join in the lively discussion and have your say here. See the full list of nominations here.
Below, just a sampling of their thoughts.
I want Jack White to win AOTY, but anyway any of them winning (maybe except fun.) would be great, it’s an outstanding lineup.
Wow. That’s a GREAT ROTY list. Nice job, Grammys. That’s a tough call. Black Keys and Frank Ocean ain’t winning that…the other 4, anyone can take it. Could that be Clarkson vs. Swift?
Impeccable Record of the Year nominees. The nominees are the perfect representation on this year in music. BUT 6???? ahhh is this the first time that has happened? I bet Taylor and Kelly both tied for that final spot.
I can’t believe Frank Ocean was snubbed in the following categories: SOTY, R&B Performance, R&B Song
Best New Artist was unexpected. No Gotye (too bad), One Direction, Emeli Sande, etc. Go Frank Ocean! Never heard of Hunter Hayes before now. His singing of the Pop Album nominees wasn’t a good first impression at all.
Wow, some pleasant surprises here! I’m shocked how alternative AOTY skews. I purchased four of those on their release date.
best AOTY line-up since the year Outkast won.
Once again, NARAS never ceases to amaze me. While there are some glaring snubs, I salute them for spreading the wealth around across the board. The General Field noms are one of the strongest of any year tbh.
So they went for talent and quality this time around – good for them. I was wrong about Frank and The Black Keys in the GF and I’m glad. I love Channel Orange and El Camino. I’m also glad Miguel snuck in with a SOTY nod. His nominations are well-deserved.
