Ariana’s AOTY nom is coming!!! Can’t wait for the reactions to that…December 4, 2014 at 6:58 am #404384
I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY doubt Ariana gets an AOTY nomination. Seriously. Let’s be realistic. They aren’t THAT hard up for nominees in AOTY.December 4, 2014 at 7:09 am #404385
Lord help us all if my little pony a.k.a. Ariana Grande gets nominated for Album of the Year. LOLDecember 4, 2014 at 7:19 am #404386
I do not see it happening, AT ALL. I don’t care how good of a singer she may be considered, she is still widely viewed as a Teeny-Bopper act who appeals to twelve year olds. NARAS is not going to reward her with an AOTY nomination. Just not going to happen. She may get into ROTY for “Problem,” but AOTY is a whole other ballgame. Her and her foo-foo dresses will have to sit that one out.December 4, 2014 at 7:32 am #404387
I guess they’ll just dump the nominees list on the Grammys homepage in the morning? It would have been nice to have a press conference, at least.
Sam Smith has been added to the Christmas Special concert.December 4, 2014 at 7:57 am #404388
Still not sold on Ariana getting AOTY. However, the more I think about it, I feel like “Problem” will get a ROTY nom, so voters can reward Ariana and Iggy, arguably two of the breakout stars of the year, together.December 4, 2014 at 8:05 am #404389
So lemme get it straight My Everything isn’t getting a AotY nod with a 64 on MC and 4 top ten hits but In The Lonely Hour is with a 62 MC and two top 10 hits? People be bias.December 4, 2014 at 8:14 am #404390

I wouldn’t call it bias—I’d call it being realistic. Sam Smith is arguably the most respected new artist of the year and his image and music is right up NARAS voters alleys. You can’t tell me voters are going to take Ariana Grande more seriouisly than Sam Smith? Hits and metacritic scores ultimately mean nothing the majority of the time when it comes to AOTY.
Maybe a few years down the line if and when she sheds the teeny bopper image she can get an AOTY nomination, but it won’t happen this year.December 4, 2014 at 8:18 am #404391
Totally agree mikeboy898,Problem will probably get nominated in ROTY
Rooting for Lana,Katy and Sia to get at least 2 noms each.Also rooting for Gaga and TonyDecember 4, 2014 at 8:21 am #404392
These nominees better be good…December 4, 2014 at 9:06 am #404393
“Problem” for ROTY feels like the more realistic prediction.
And why would someone compare Sam’s chances with Ariana’s? Isn’t Sam’s album outselling Ariana’s by a large amount? A 62 and 64 on Metacritic are basically the same thing.December 4, 2014 at 9:10 am #404394
I woudn’t be surprised if both Sam and Ariana gets AOTY noms
