    Lol. What makes you think “Sucker” is this frontrunner for Pop Group?

    I REALLY don’t understand why you’re overhyping a group who hasn’t been nominated since 2009.

    They haven’t been nominated since 2009 because their last album was in 2009…

    And it’s the most similar. Pop songs with real instruments and catchy hooks prevail here, and Sucker’s predecessor (Feel It Still) won here as well.

    They won’t award a rapper, given how bad of a track record rappers have in the pop field, so Post is out.

    I’m not convinced they’ll give Sam Smith the Grammy. The song really isn’t breaking any records, and they snubbed his last era. Plus if they didn’t award Camila then they’ll probably pass on Normani.

    That basically leaves the failed Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift singles – which are not winning just based on how badly they’ve been received – and Gaga and the JoBros, both of which are frontrunners.

    Sucker is one of the biggest hits of the year, had an amazing run at Radio, is still selling and streaming well, and will likely end up in the top 10 of the YE. Add the amazing album sales, and the comeback narrative (as well as the great reviews), it seems like a clear path to win.

    However, Gaga is still, well, Gaga, and last year proved that she’s a force to be reckoned with in the Pop field. Plus, she’ll be riding the ASIB hype.

    gossip magazines that are not relevant. please Gaga was already indicated even in AOTY when her albums had songs like Alejendro and Judas, this is not going to harm her in any way.

    Honestly though. But shouldn’t  that drama help out her case, not bring her down. I mean it’s helping Ariana right now and her album and she’s succeeding. Honestly let’s keep the drama on another forum. We are here to predict the best albums and songs of this year, not another edition of Extra or TMZ. Music as an art form should be about the music not about the artist. If you don’t know what’s going on in a person’s life, don’t comment.

    “Sucker” is no “Feel It Still” (even though it sounds like a cheap copy). Portugal. The Man has a huge alternative following. Jonas Brothers are a pop boyband.

    Jonas Brothers’ Grammy history is not strong at all. Their only nomination was BNA in 2009. It doesn’t matter if they haven’t released an album since then. I don’t see what you’re going on. The ROTY talk is questionable as well. And their sales took a huge tumble this week, btw. It was propelled by bundles.

    The pop field is going to see so many upsets come Grammy nomination day. I cannot wait.

    Is there any word yet on what the new Grammy categories and regulations for 2020 are? If not, does anyone know when they’ll be released?

    What upsets do you think of seeing in the pop field?

    Portgual. The Man didn’t have a “huge alternative following”, clearly since they didn’t have any hits on the Alt charts nor did they have any Grammy history. They were very indie; most people in the indie crowd didn’t know them, or at least not until Evil Friends.

    Grammy history isn’t that revelant in that category. Plenty of first time nominees have won, and just last year we saw Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, and more artists snubbed.

    And yes, it does matter that they haven’t released anything after 2009 (they released a single in 2013 that went nowhere so I’m not including that). How are they gonna have any “history” with no music to nominate them for? The fact that they even got a BNA nom when so many Disney acts have been snubbed is admirable.

    You have been saying the same for 3 years. The Pop field is not changing until they add a committee, and we’ll be stuck with it until then. Sucker is not a locked win, but it is by far the frontrunner.

    I’ve been saying the same thing for three years, yet we had several surprised snubs (Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, etc.) and surprised nominees (Beck, Tony Bennett, Backstreet Boys etc.) just last year, so clearly there was a shift just last year WITHOUT a committee. So, what are you even talking about?

    And no, just because you say “Sucker” is “by far” the frontrunner doesn’t make it so. A far out frontrunner would have to have more benefits than what you’re stating. An example of that would be Ed Sheeran winning Pop Solo for “Shape of You” or Adele, not some boyband whose Grammy history is mediocre at best. You just want these big pop records by teenyboppers to win all the time. This is NOT the Teen Choice Awards.

    And if you want to get technical, Jonas Brothers may not have released any music together in over ten years, but DNCE and Nick Jonas had and the Grammys paid them dust.

    I think this is a similar debate to the one we had to Camila Cabello last year. People used her Grammy history (or lack thereof) of Fifth Harmony against her. She ended up getting the nominations but still LOST, despite posters thinking she would prevail just because she had a #1 hit.

    The same thing will happen with JB. They will get the nominations and lose all of them.

    I wouldn’t say ‘Sucker’ is lock to win but I think it has a very good chance.

    The Jonas Brothers were also passed over in Pop Performance by a Duo/Group and Pop Album the year after they were nominated for Best New Artist, in addition to them not receiving any nominations via DNCE or Joe and Nick’s solo careers.

    Why do you always say this when people predict younger acts (which, in most cases, have strong cases in favour of them)? It’s not a strong argument, it’s just plain pathetic.

    I do not like Sucker, nor do I like the Jonas Brothers; if it were for me that category would go to Gaga. But to dismiss them is as dumb as people dimissing Sweetener last year because “it was a teeny bopper album”.

    I don’t know how archaic you are, but most of the times when you use the term “teen” you’re reffering to artists who already moved out of that phase. The JoBros’s fans are probably well in their 20s/early 30s now aside from the (normal) new teen audience. Ariana Grande has young adult fans. Even someone like Justin Bieber probably has a slew of adult fans. Same with almost every artist you accuse of this. Teenyboppers don’t have the best first-week sales of the year, and teenyboppers don’t get Grammy noms.

    We’re in 2019 – most of those acts have more than 6 years in the industry. You want a true teeny-bopper? Go to someone like Madison Beer or Sabrina Carpenter or Why Don’t We. Whatever you call teenyboppers are not anymore. They’re the new normal.
