I noticed that there are some artists that received several Grammy nominations for their debut release and then zilch on subsequent releases. Below are examples:
Taylor Dayne received nominations for Pop Female for the Tell It To My Heart album and R&B Female for I’ll Always Love You (my personal choice) in 1989. I thought that she was deserving of a Pop Female nomination for Love Will Lead You Back, but her name was not one of the nominees in 1991.
Macy Gray received 5 nominations for her debut On How Life Is over the course of 2000 and 2001 including Best New Artist and R&B Female (Do Something) in 2000 and Record and Song of the Year (I Try) and Pop Female (I Try) in 2001. Her following releases did not garner any additional nominations for her.
Avril Lavigne received 8 nominations for her debut Let Go over the course of 2003 and 2004 including Best New Artist, Song of the Year and Pop Female (Complicated), Pop Album for Let Go and Rock Female for Sk8er Boi. In 2004, she was nominated for Song of the Year and Pop Female (I’m With You) and Rock Female for Losing Grip (my personal choice).
Can you think of any others that suffered the same fate as the three that I mentioned?August 27, 2012 at 8:20 pm #383093
Natalie Imbruglia received 3 nominations for her debut (Best New Artist, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Best Pop Album) in 1998.
Sisqo received 4 nominations for his solo debut (Best New Artist, Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, Best R&B Song, Best R&B Album) in 2000.
Remy Shand received 4 nominations for his debut (Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance, Best R&B Song, Best R&B Album) in 2002.August 27, 2012 at 8:31 pm #383094
James Blunt was not nominated anymore after garnering five noms in 2006.August 27, 2012 at 9:07 pm #383095
Wilson Phillips?August 27, 2012 at 9:32 pm #383096
Los Lonely Boys received 4 nominations in 2005, winning Best Pop Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group (“Heaven”). They were also nominated for Record of the Year (“Heaven”), Best New Artist and Best Rock Instrumental Performance (“Onda”). In 2006 they received a new nomination for Pop Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group (“More Than Love”), also from the debut album. After that, they never returned to the Grammys.August 30, 2012 at 7:14 pm #383097
I just thought of a few others.
Culture Club won Best New Artist in 1984 and was nominated for Pop Duo or Group for Do You Really Want To Hurt Me. I am shocked that they did not get any nominations for their follow up album which contained Karma Chameleon.
Jennifer Lopez received nominations in the Dance categories in 2000 (Waiting For Tonight) and 2001 (Let’s Get Loud – my personal choice and this should have been a bigger hit). Surprisingly she did not get any nominations for her collaborations with Ja Rule for I’m Real and Ain’t It Funny.
Freddie Jackson was nominated for Best New Artist and R&B Male (You Are My Lady) in 1986. Freddie Jackson racked up several R&B hits since his debut, but he never received any additional nominations.
Paula Abdul was nominated for Pop Female for Straight Up in 1990 and Best Video in 1991 for Opposites Attract.August 30, 2012 at 8:53 pm #383098
J.Lo wasn’t elegible for Im Real or Aint it Funny, they were remixes, not the original songs. I’m Real would’ve been a worthy nominee though, if it weren’t for that rule
Paula Cole recieved what? Seven nominations? Including all four general field categories, I think she even got Producer of the Year. She won Best New Artist.August 31, 2012 at 6:32 am #383099
Jody Watley received 2 nominations for her debut (Best New Artist & Best Female R&B Vocal Performance) in 1987.
Kris Kross received 2 nominations for their debut (Best New Artist & Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group) in 1992.
SWV [Sisters With Voices] received a nomination for their debut (Best New Artist) in 1993.August 31, 2012 at 9:02 pm #383100
I’ve been listening to “One of Us” a lot lately, so: Joan Osborne received six nominations in 1996, including all four categories in the general field (spread across herself, her debut album Relish, “One of Us,” and “St. Teresa”). Then, in “1997” she got nominated for Rock Female with “Spiderwebs” (also off Relish). After that she got zilch.September 5, 2012 at 12:36 pm #383101
Best Pop Performance by Duo or Group “Virtual Insanity” (won)
Best Pop Album “Travelling without moving”
Also, they received a nomination in 2005 for Best Music Video Short Form “Feels just like it should”
The Verve (1999)
Best Rock Song “Bitter Sweet Symphony”
Best Rock Performance by Duo or Group “Bitter Sweet Symphony”
Neither of the two songs (Virtual Insanity” and “Bitter Sweet Symphony”) were nominated for Record or/and Song of the year, and both deserved the nomination, and win.September 6, 2012 at 12:18 pm #383102
Lisa Stansfield received nominations in 1991 for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Female for Been Around The World.
I thought that she had a good chance of being nominated for her followup album that contained Change and All Woman.
