Are there any artists that you were surprised to find out that were never nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards?
I was surprised that Debbie Gibson and Tiffany were not nominated for Best New Artsist at the Grammy Awards in 1988. My guess is that they split the vote.
I was also surprised that Madonna did not get nominated for Best New Artist in 1984. If nominated, she would have lost to Culture Club.
I will admit that I was surprised that Paula Abdul was not nominated in 1990 for Best New Artist because her hits were all of the place during the eligibility period.
I am surprised that Eminem did not get nominated in 2000 along with Macy Gray, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilara.
Florida Georgia Line, of course. Their song “Cruise” sold over 6 million coppies. They have four consecutive number one songs at Country Airplay Charts. Cruise spend 24 week at the top of Hot Country Charts and became the best selling country digital song.
Carly Rae Jepsen
Lana Del Rey
Foster the People
I know she was ineligible, but Lady Gaga would have destroyed her competition if she had been nominated. A very weak year for BNA.
It’s weird to think that P!nk was never up for BNA at the Grammys considering how well she did afterwards, and how many GRAMMY®
moments she’s had.
one’s probably more of a hindsight one, but it’s kind of surprising
that Duran Duran never got a BNA nomination when you look at some of the
other “MTV” acts who did get one in the 1980s.
I don’t know how successful Coldplay was in the U.S. with Parachutes, but to me it’s pretty surprising they didn’t score a BNA nod.
Pink is interesting because she picked up Best New Artist nominations for other award shows (MTV and American Music Awards). I know that her debut cd was more R&B. I think that if her debut cd was similar to the second cd, then I think that Pink would have been nominated and would have won.
Miranda Lambert and Kelly Clarkson. The fomer is really surprising because she actually broke a Grammy record.
I’m surprised Em didn’t get nominated in 1999.
Lorde last year. This is probably the most shocking to me.
Lana Del Ray in 2012.
TLC in 1992.
Mary J. Blige
