    Hi all,

    What Grammy nominations surprised you all the most, and who’s missing from the list that you thought would surely get in? Courtney Barnette in and Hozier out for Best New Artist is a big one for me.

    Hozier didn’t really do anything this year, so I’m not sure why many people predicted a nomination. He’s a one-hit wonder for now. Meghan Trainor was at least consistent through ’15.

    I was pleasantly surprised that D’Angelo managed a ROTY nomination but no R&B Performance nomination for “Really Love.”

    The general field as a whole was pretty predictable. Basically what most people were predicting here with a few exceptions.

    I’d also say the lack of the top 40-friendly EDM acts not named Diplo & Skrillex (Zedd, Calvin Harris, DJ Snake, Tiesto, Martin Garrix, Diplo’s Major Lazer) in the dance categories. Flipside of that same point: a pleasant surprise, Kaskade getting his 5th nomination in the Remixed Recording category.

    – Shocked Foo Fighters didn’t receive AOTY and Best Rock Album nominations.

    – Pleasantly surprised that D’Angelo received a ROTY nom.  Shocked he was snubbed in AOTY, Best R&B Performance and Best Traditional R&B Performance.

    – Shocked Courtney Barnett got a Best New Artist nod.  No one predicted that.

    – Shocked Meghan Trainor didn’t get a Best Pop Vocal Album nom.

    – Kind of shocked that Hozier didn’t get a nomination. 

    – Shocked that Kelly Clarkson got a Best Pop Solo Performance nomination.  Her Best Pop Vocal Album nom was expected.

    I’m surprised that the popular favorites like Beyonce, Jay-Z, Rihanna, etc. didn’t get Grammy nominations considering that the academy often likes to name check them for nominations.

    Foo Fighters not nominated for Rock Album, they could have easily won if nominated and also based on veteran status.

    I happily surprised with D’Angelo’s ROTY nomination, I thought he would’ve gotten an AOTY nomination.

    I was hoping that Leon Bridges would have been nominated for BNA and could have taken Meghan Trainor’s slot. I don’t understand the BNA elligibility rules. He is nominated for Best R&B Album which is great, he and D’Angelo are the frontrunners.

    Nothing too shocking this year, maybe outside of Foo Fighters exclusion in the General Field, and Rock categories. The “veteran” nominee in Album of the Year is Taylor Swift.

    I agree Meghan Trainor’s lack of presence in the Pop Field is surprising, I think this is a strong sign that she will not win Best New Artist.  Sam Hunt looks like he only has one nomination in the Country Field. I also should have swapped Hozier out, since he has not had any other single take off.  I am going with one of the surprise nominees as the winner, Best New Artist is such a weak category.  I will go Courtney Barnett.

    2 words. Courtney Barnett. Stunning! Fairly shaken that D’Angelo made ROTY under the radar and not AOTY. No Foos, the ascendance of James Bay, Kendrick Lamar, Cheis Stapleton, and Alabama Shakes. What a list this year!!!

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention Kelly Clarkson and her two nominations in the Pop field. I’m a little surprised considering that although her album went to number 1 earlier this year and Heartbeat Song was a modest hit that they would forget about it.

    Lana Del Rey’s Honeymoon. So upset that she was snubbed for it because how great and innovative it is. Sigh. At least she gets a album of the year nom for being featured on the Weeknd’s album

    Kelly Clarkson always gets in, no matter if her albums underperform. She should not have been nominated, i despise her nominations for this Grammy’s.

    Best Pop Solo is such a weak category vocally.

    Lana Del Rey being snubbed for the second year in a row, with a deserving album. It makes me upset how they nominated her for Paradise with no reason, and now they just don’t want to give her a nomination again.

    Kelley Clarkson did NOT deserve that spot for Pop Vocal Album over Lana. Like seriously??
