    I’ve always found the Best New Artist category to be strange. Bc of the rules (while they have bern more laxed the past few years). In the 80s/90s/00s many artists couldn’t be nominated bc of the cut and dry rules.
    Like at the FEBRUARY 1990 Grammys. Mili Vanilli won (later revoked) but the biggest new star of 1989 was Paula Abdul but she couldn’t be nominated bc she was submitted the year before bc her album came out in June 88 but didn’t take off till early 89. Also many of our biggest stars also didn’t receive best new artists nominations for similar circumstances.

    So what are the people u think most deserved a nom (if the rules had been adjusted) or what are some of ur biggest winner/loser upsets?

    I think Alanis M or Shania Twain should have won in 96 over Hootie and the Blowfish. Hootie probably won bc they were up againist 4 solo females, who probably split the vote.

    Lorde should have been nominated in 2014. Huge snub. Eminem should’ve gotten a nod in 2000.

    Lana Del Rey in 2013.

    Hootie & The Blowfish won Best New Artist because their debut album was a huge seller. Plus, they were ineligible for AOTY in 1995.

    Deserving of noms:

    Tamar Braxton
    Kelly Clarkson
    Andra Day
    En Vogue
    Whitney Houston
    Lorde
    Madonna
    Usher
    TLC
