    Following David Bowie’s death on January 10th, his last album “Blackstar” debuted at #1 on Billboard 200 chart. Also, the album received acclaim from music critics. Considering grammy voters loves albums like this one, an experimental rock album with some jazz, I have a feeling this could beat Adele’s “25”, because I think it’s too soon to give her another AOTY and it’s just stupid that Bowie’s only grammy is for Music Video, I think an posthumous AOTY shouldn’t surprise to anyone.

    I dont know as I think it is way too early for next year grammy predictions. It is a possibility though. I do know Adele will 99.99% likely not win AOTY in the 2017 grammys. The last time Adele won it, she completely swept the grammys. There is no way grammy voters are going to vote her for AOTY that soon. She will win something just not AOTY. Also, in my opinion “21” is better than “25”.  A huge part of the reason Adele’s “25” did so welll was because of the hype off her last album and because she had not released music in a long time. Hence, she had a lot of preorders. This is not a bad thing as she is definitely talented. I just honestly think that Adele could have released ANYTHING of “25” and it would have went #1. I still love Adele. She has an amazing voice. I am actually seeing her when she stops by my town.

    If anyone were to win AOTY twice in a short period of time, it’s Adele.

    Unless David Bowie maintains buzz and sales, I doubt he gets nominated for AOTY.

    It’s not like Ray Charles was full of buzz or sales when he won posthumously. NARAS can’t help it! They’re hopeless necrophiliacs.

    A good way to be in contention for any award. Die after you finished something.

    Yes! I already said this in the Adele thread.

    Sure. That’s if the panel even decides to nominate Blackstar, and of course, we have other releases to consider. The fact that David Bowie probably wouldn’t be a consideration had he not died is telling.

    If “Blackstar” gets nominated I believe David will win. He’s only ever won a single Grammy. #Due

    He has a fighting chance against Adele’s 25. It’ll be a tight race if nominated.

    If he is nominated he will almost certainly win.

    Honey, not only did Ray Charles have buzz due to his upcoming biopic, his album sold three million copies.  The two are not comparable.  Plus, NARAS is over rewarding old, overdue farts in AOTY.

    Of course he will.

    Mind you, I dont know who makes up the body of decision makers.

     

    But he will.

    If he gets nominated, the possibility would be strong.

    Had the unforunate event of Bowie’s passing occurred closer to thea dealine, I think there would be a strong possibility. Right now I think it’s 50/50 on the nomination though. I know the Grammys have stopped doing this from the last decade, but if they were ever going to revert and make an exception…David Bowie would be a perfect example of a previously under-awarded veteran to give the AOTY to posthumously. 

    Adele can still clean up all the other categories, so it’s not like she would be “snubbed” or forgotten in any way either.
