    Billie will probably win BNA. Lewis could win SoTY if nominated.

    How are Charlie Puth, Shawn Mendes, or really anyone outside of Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran close to Capaldi?

    They make more sense than you comparing Billie to Avril Lavigne and Fiona Apple…

    Billie Eilish can definitely lose; it’s not unprecedented.

    It’s also not realistic.

    The difference being that there was not a clear frontrunner that year.

    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.

    All of the 2005 nominees (Los Lonely Boys, Maroon 5, Joss Stone, Kanye West, and Gretchen Wilson) are Grammy winners as well. All of them except Joss Stone won that same year, too.

    But yes, those are the only two groups of nominees that have all won this century.

    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.

    That fact ain’t helping your case. Dua is popular and won, Billie looks almost the same situation.

    BNA is Billie’s or Lizzo’s to win, as it should be.

    I do see why people are saying that Lewis Capalidi could get BNA, but Billie Eillish is having a MASSIVE year with her debut album receiving critical and commercial success. All of her songs are topping the charts, streaming services and all. She’s practically a lock for Best New Artist.

    I expected the “British balladeer” thing to pan out for Calum Scott last year, and it didn’t so I wouldn’t be too confident in Capaldi at this point.

    As of now, there are only 10 artists that goldderby has at better than 100/1 odds for an AOTY nom, and most of them are hella unrecognized by the Grammys.

    Billie Eilish: 0 nods
    Lizzo: 0 nods
    Tyler the Creator: 0/2
    Khalid: 0/5
    Solange: 1/1
    Vampire Weekend: 1/2
    Anderson Paak: 1/3
    Ariana Grande: 1/6

    + darlings Gaga and Beyoncé

    It feels weird to predict so many acts with little Grammy history contending for AOTY… but I guess it’s not too different from the most recent lineup, which featured 4 acts who had 0-2 nods prior to that ceremony.

    Country is the second most prevalent genre among AOTY nominees in the 2010s, but I guess we could have a lineup without a country/Americana album if there isn’t a definitive choice. I’d say Maren Morris just because she’s gotten a lot of noms in very few years, but I don’t think GIRL really fits the mold.

    Lewis Capaldi is more of a James Arthur than a Sam Smith/Ed Sheeran.

    Is it?

    I counted:

    Country: 5

    R&B: 8

    Rock: 9

    Rap: 10

    I’m actually surprised people are arguing BNA. They may as well engrave Billie Eilish name on the trophy right now. The only way I can see her losing is if she is not eligible for some reason, or her label forgets to submit her for whatever reason. Or if she says something racist.
