    Hello,

    In 1988 Grammy Awards MJ’s Bad has been nominated for both

    Best Male Pop Vocal Perf.
    Best Male R&B Vocal Perf.

    How can this happen? Wasn’t it against rules?

    Not 100% sure about this but I think the Pop nom was for the whole album meanwhile RnB was for the single only. At least according to wiki

    Albums and singles used to compete in the same categories

    But isn’t it strange to see single and albums in the same category?

    Also we have Crazy in Love nommed in both R&B Song, and Rap/Sung.

    It’s strange but it used to be like this for some reason

    And there’s nothing weird with Crazy In Love’s categories. It’s an RnB song with a Rap feature thus making it eligible for both. Pop/Rnb and even Rock songs with a rap feature were eligible until 2014 hence why songs like Numb/Encore, Umbrella and Crazy In Love won

    Honey, the whole Bad album was nominated for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.  The single “Bad” was nominated for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.

    Prior to 1995, there were no genre album categories.  So, albums were allowed to compete in performance categories.
