    Just a fun idea “What if the Grammy eligibility calendar was from January 1st to December 31st?”

    Who do you think would be the nominees would be for this year and past years?

    The title is all kinds of messed up and I can’t edit it so please no need to correct me on the grammar. I’m not a fan of this new mobile layout.

    For this year the nominees would probably look like this:

    Album of the Year
    25 – Adele
    To Pimp a Butterfly – Kendrick Lamar
    Beauty Behind the Madness – The Weeknd
    Sound & Color – Alabama Shakes
    Cass County – Don Henley

    Song of the Year
    “Hello” (Adele)
    “Style” (Taylor Swift)
    “Can’t Feel My Face” (The Weeknd)
    “Fight Song” (Rachel Platten)
    “Photograph” (Ed Sheeran)

    Record of the Year
    Can’t Feel My Face – The Weeknd
    Bad Blood – Taylor Swift ft. Kendrick Lamar
    Hello – Adele
    Trap Queen – Fetty Wap
    See You Again – Wiz Khalifa ft. Charlie Puth

    Best New Artist
    Tori Kelly
    James Bay
    Halsey
    Meghan Trainor
    George Ezra

    For the 53rd Grammys, MBDTF would have more than likely been nominated. I wonder if it could have beating The Suburbs.

    It would be another Adele sweeep if the ceremony was still held in Feb/March. “Hello” is huge and the hype of the album alone would be too big to ignore. With the calendar the way it is now, various artists could easily block Adele from a sweep by 2017. 

    Now that I think about it, I sort of like the calendar the way it is. If it was calendar year, I think the Grammys would just be a show for whatever is released in the 4th quarter (with some exceptions or course).

    It wouldn’t change much except for the addition of Adele
