    I’ve been saying since February Someone You Loved has a strong chance at SoTY and you guys have been writing it off. It’s already 55 on BB100 and will likely enter the TOP40.

    It could get in from the british vote alone. Don’t underestimate it. Look at Jorja Smith.

    We finally agree on something.

    I remember posting about Lewis’ “Grace” and “Someone You Loved” back in December. I love being influential.

    Finneas is the #1 songwriter and producer on Billboard’s new charts. Is he a lock for Producer or is Louis Bell still on the run?

    It’s the type of song that the Grammys go nuts for! Singer-songwriter single that can be played on Adult Contemporary radio stations as well as Top 40.

    Capaldi and Lizzo are becoming BNA threats, specially the former. He could easily follow Adele’s and Sam Smith’s lane if that song takes off.

    Way too early to make a judgment call on Lewis Capaldi, especially after James Arthur was completely shut out a few years ago. He’s probably in for a Best New Artist nomination but everything else? Wait and see.

    And literally no one is winning Best New Artist whose name isn’t Billie Eilish, that much is obvious.

    Arthur was never a BNA contender, his name was surrounded with controversy and he wasn’t even new in the slightest.

    I could see Billie losing (if Capaldi takes off, as I said). She’s not a Grammy type artist. Lorde, Lana, Avril, all lost the award. She’s the frontrunner (and the best quality-wise) as of now, but we all thought Ella Mai and Cardi B were BNA locks last year, as we thought Khalid or SZA were winning BNA before Alessia was allowed to compete. It’s way too early to call her a locked win.

    Neither Lana nor Lorde was nominated for BNA. I suspect Lorde would have been formidable competition for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis had they not snubbed her right out.

    Lorde and Lana Del Rey were not nominated for Best New Artist. Avril Lavigne lost to Norah Jones. Cardi B was not eligible last year, and the Ella Mai comparison is laughable.

    Billie Eilish has the biggest album of the year. There is no way she’s going to lose to some random one-hit wonder just because he has a hit piano ballad.

    She beat Macklemore for Song of the Year, so logically, she likely would have won Best New Artist had she been nominated.

    Those solo AC male acts do not fare well in BNA. Sam Smith was just an undeniable situation.

    Capaldi is closer to the past BNA winners. Alessia, Sam Smith, Adele, Bon Iver, etc. The Grammy’s love ballads and they definitely have a thing for Brits. No one is saying Billie is losing, I’m just saying Capaldi is definitely in the running. That award is not locked.

    Plus, having an AOTY nom doesn’t even help that much. HER still lost to Dua Lipa despite having more nominations, an AOTY nod, and being more talented.

    Weird tangent, but from what I can gather, the 2014 BNA line-up (Ed Sheeran, Macklemore, James Blake, Kacey Musgraves, Kendrick Lamar) has been the only one this century in which all of the nominees have won at least one award. Shows how competitive it might’ve been.

    For every Sam Smith, you have several other Ed Sheerans, John Mayers, (lost), Shawn Mendeses, James Arthurs, Charlie Puths, Andy Grammers, Passengers, etc. (not even nominated).

    It doesn’t matter that Lewis Capaldi is vaguely similar to Sam Smith or whatever balladeers have won this category before. They don’t default to giving Best New Artist to the same types of artists; just this decade alone, the award has gone to an extremely diverse group of artists ranging in genre from singer-songwriter pop to dance-pop to hip-hop to country to even jazz.

    Billie Eilish is this year what Cardi B would have been last year had she been eligible: an undeniable frontrunner and all but certain to be the winner. No, Lewis Capaldi is not a threat to her. The fact that this is even a debate is ridiculous.
