    I said it before and I will say it again…

    Any bozo who is predicting “Shape of You” over “Castle on the Hill” is stupid, especially in SOTY. It will join the pantheon of the most BS and embarrassing SOTY nominees ever since “All About That Bass” and “Shake it Off”.

    Like I said previously, I don’t get the hate for Ed Sheeran’s new album. I think it’s great. I’m really liking his third single, Galway Girl. The only thing I don’t get is why it has 9 writers on it while it’s only 2:50 – the shortest song on the album.

    It samples a song by another band whose writers are all credited, I believe.

    The songwriting list for “Shape of You” just got longer too, as all the songwriters for “No Scrubs” are now appropriately credited.

    I kinda like Zara, but she really doesn’t have a chance at BNA. Her career did not happen here, So Good failed.

    Does anyone think Father John Misty’s new album could get into AotY? More and more people are discovering who he is, and his previous works have been acclaimed to high heaven.

    Wow… Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss now has another huge hit on her resume. She’ll be rolling in more dough now. Can Shape of You still be nominated in Song of the Year even though it samples No Scrubs? It would be awesome if Kandi could win another Grammy.

    It’d be nice. There’s often a spot in AOTY for non mainstream but acclaimed album, right? You should ask for more expert opinions than mine, but it doesn’t seem to be a good year for pop music so maybe there’s more room than usual for outsiders…

    Adam Lambert is by far the best singer of our generation. He can sing anything without effort, he hits notes I didn’t even know existed, he connects to the audience, his songs inspire millions of people around the world and he put his heart and soul into his songs. But still he is the most unappreciated singer I know… Now how is that possible?! (And Ibdid not just say that because I’m a fan, I said it because it’s the truth!!)

    Two Adam Lambert stan accounts each with one post only, both joined today and posted minutes apart. Not even trying to pretend it’s not the same person!

    This may be the year Katy gets her first Grammy. Looking like a weak year for the Pop Field. I guess Ed Sheeran would be the front runner for Pop Vocal Album. However, the performance categories seem like a wide open race. No real frontrunners for Solo or Duo/Group.

    Best Pop Vocal Album will probably end up looking like this:
    24K Magic – Bruno Mars
    Melodrama – Lorde
    Katy Perry
    Divide – Ed Sheeran
    Some other album

    The “some other album” will either be Haim, Lana Del Rey’s Lust For Life or Lady Gaga’s Joanne. This year’s incredibly weak.

    how is Katy winning her first Grammy when she is weaker than never?

    the only thing that made her a Grammy Contender before was her BIG comercial success, but now, without that… well let’s see
