I hope Maroon 5 won’t be nominated for anything.
Who still listens to this guy? He writes the most generic pop music every time… And it’s getting worse and worse with every single. This Love was actually decent at least.
I agree they were better back in the day, but with Girls Like You shaping up to be one of the biggest hits of this summer, they’re very likely heading towards a Pop Duo/Group nomination.
They’re also now becoming competitive for a Pop Vocal Album nomination. This is their fourth or fifth hit from this album.June 14, 2018 at 7:49 am #1202565262
I think Bed could be a Rap Sung contender… depending on how it performs the next few weeks/ months. But, it doesn’t sound bad at all… unlike pretty much everything Nicki has put out this year.June 14, 2018 at 7:51 am #1202565263
Maroon 5 have been snubbed in Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for hits. Red Pill Blues won’t be anywhere near Best Pop Vocal Album. It did nothing. I feel like voters are over them.June 14, 2018 at 8:01 am #1202565270

The few times Maroon 5 has been snubbed in Pop Duo/Group Performance:
Daylight – came out early in the cycle, and 2012-13 was a very competitive Grammy year (that was the year where Get Lucky, Blurred Lines, Stay, Suit & Tie, and Just Give Me a Reason were nominated).
Maps – came out just before deadline
Don’t Wanna Know – came out at the VERY beginning of last year’s cycle
Girls Like You has better timing and is already bigger than the three aforementioned songs. This is also a somewhat less competitive year. And it should go without saying, but Cardi B is on fire.June 14, 2018 at 8:10 am #1202565276
Actually, fact check: Maps came out in June. My bad.
Still, Girls Like You will likely hit #1 on the Hot 100 in the coming weeks. I feel very strongly they won’t be passed over this time.June 14, 2018 at 9:14 am #1202565322
Honestly, with a category as competitive as pop, they should revive the male/female categories.June 14, 2018 at 9:43 am #1202565339
I think they won’t revive the male/female categories. A ton of SJWs will give them shit because “what about artists who don’t identify as male and female” or something along those lines.
Maroon 5 could be ignored. They have enough hate to be snubbed by tje Grammy’s. Their songs are generic and, while the Grammy’s don’t care about quality, there’s already a handful of well-liked pop duo group contenders.
Bed sounds like a bop. Minaj will probably send it to Rap/Sung considering it’ll likely be a hit. Hope it gets in.June 14, 2018 at 9:44 am #1202565341
Also Ms. Grande now has 3 top 10s in iTunes* not 2.June 14, 2018 at 10:29 am #1202565396
You forgot about the Alesia Cara situation.
