This is an opinionated statement not a factual statement. “Without Me” is at #24 and is projected to be in the TOP5 of YEC. “TUN” left the charts months ago. Without Me is being sold, played on the radio and streamed more than TUN right now. So your “forgotten” argument is invalid.
Just because something is still charting doesn’t mean it has a better chance than anybody else. There weren’t many songs that made the top 10 last year of the Year End Lists that many of us thought we’re going to make the top 10 list here, yet they missed out. Regardless, Ariana Grande just needs a moment. No voter is genuine skimming through Billboard seeing who is #8 on the charts, they just care what wasn’t big on the charts during eligibility period. And Thank U, Next and Without Me are. The only real case for longevity you bring up is Old Town Road breaking the Billboard record, but are voters gonna vote just based on that or are we goin to want see win. Halsey has only 2 nominations for things that are really about her, so expecting her to get noms from someone who is having the biggest moment of her career and better quality than Halsey makes total sense.

Halsey will be a non-factor as usual. Don’t see her getting in. But even if she’s lucky enough to make it, her chances at winning are zero.August 15, 2019 at 9:15 am #1203025103
I can see ‘Western Stars’ by Bruce Springsteen being nominated and possibly winning. They may want a veteran to win considering how weak this year has been.
I doubt it. They haven’t nominated an act who debuted prior to the ’90s since 2009. It seems like the Grammys have moved on from giving out AOTY as a lifetime achievement award.
This year really isn’t that weak. Billie, Gaga, Gary Clark Jr., and Vampire Weekend would all be competitive for the win if nominated, and none of those would be an embarrassing winner 20 years from now.August 15, 2019 at 10:06 am #1203025198
Dancing With A Stranger is predicted to be in the TOP20 of YEC and will probably chart higher than TUN. So yeah let’s stop with the double standard here.
not to mention the song is certified 2xPlatinum…. I think Pop Duo is on lock but unfortunately no win

‘Motivation’ is garbage. Poor Normani has been handed Ariana’s scraps.August 15, 2019 at 2:34 pm #1203025561
I guess Billie and her team found out about Bad Guy being real close to #1 because they’ve been promoting it like CRAZY all of a sudden…Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantAugust 15, 2019 at 2:49 pm #1203025578

Yeah, they have. The vertical video was just uploaded to her YouTube channel. Her people REALLY want Bad Guy to be a #1, and it very well could get there.August 15, 2019 at 3:40 pm #1203025640

I don’t know if Bad Guy is a ROTY frontrunner yet, but reaching #1 definitely won’t hurt its case.August 15, 2019 at 4:56 pm #1203025695
Honey, Lady Gaga/A Star Is Born would be a very embarrassing AOTY winner 20 years from now. There is nothing great about that album.
