    228 users are predicting Ariana as their main pick for AOTY (which GoldDerby counts as “predicted to win”). So yes, a lot of people do think she could win.

    Whether or not I personally agree (I don’t) is irrelevant, as is this tangent you guys have created, because that wasn’t even the point of the post. Just because 2 users are not capable of reading the name “Ariana” without getting in full defense mode does not mean the facts I brought out are false.

    Am I the only who thinks this year has been really, really good? We may have less albums than usual but honestly most of the AOTY contenders are at least good.

    Billie, Ariana, Gaga, Lizzo, Khalid, Tyler, Solange, Maggie, Beyoncé, Capaldi, Paak, 21 Savage, Vampire Weekend and Gary Clark Jr, all delivered at least good albums. Hell, even Ed Sheeran’s album wasn’t a complete turd. This year is more uninteresting than outright “bad”.

    You lost me at Ed Sheeran. Other than that it has been a good year in music.

    I’d have to disagree with Belcalis on this one. Dying while performing oral sex seems pretty great. I’m glad she’s interested in my sex life though. We stan a woke sex icon.

    So… you’re just arguing, for the sake of arguing? Not even because you think the statement in question is true? Ok then.

    I’m glad we’re both in agreement that the notion Ariana would win AOTY, or any general field category, is ludicrous.

    we all know Grammy voters are more likely to pick the pop/alternative singer-songwriter over the R&B/pop/hip-hop artist.

    I agree, and this is 100% completely factual. How could we forget that time Lorde, an alternative/pop singer songwriter won AOTY over Bruno Mars, an R&B/pop artist.

    No? Again – the point of my post wasn’t about Ariana. You just misread it in order to rant about Ariana, which is forgiven given how often it occurs.

    We should start a petition to get better funding for education in America. Clearly English class is not working.

    You might have a point there had Bruno Mars not previously won 5 Grammys off of his established brand as a pop star.

    Or, maybe, had they picked a pop artist who actually had enough support to get nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album (like Ed Sheeran). Very few people actually expected Lorde to win AOTY when it was her only nomination that year.

    OR if Melodrama were a bigger commercial success than 24K Magic… or a commercial success at all.

    My point still stands considering the last time an alternative pop singer songwriter, and the most mentioned comparison to Billie in these threads, won Album of the Year was in 1996. To put that in perspective, 3 R&B/hip hop albums have won AOTY after 1996.

    Also, I would like to remind y’all that this argument comes just a few days after some posters said Billie wasn’t winning AOTY because she was 17 – which I responded to by saying voters don’t care about age. It must be pure coincidence that those same posters are the ones suddenly supporting Billie.

    In the words of the Generous queen Nicki Minaj: pick a side, pick a side.

    New things can happen next year really. This year is evidently different in music. I wonder what the Recoriding Academy will do.

    3 R&B/hip hop albums have won AOTY after 1996.

    but if you want to get specific about gender like you were with alternative, only one of those was by a woman, and that was also prior to the 21st century.

    Lizzo’s disadvantage is not that she is an R&B/Hip Hop artist (people use this conveniently; she was a pop artist a couple months ago). It’s because she’s a black female. The last black female to win AOTY was Lauryn Hill in 1999… almost 21 years ago.

    Billie would stand a better chance because she’s more successful… and white. After Lauryn’s win, eight albums by white females have won AOTY.

    I wasn’t specific about gender – the last alternative pop singer songwriter album to win AOTY was Jagged Little Pill, unless you conaider Morning Phase alternative pop, which it isn’t.

    And even using gender, Ms Hill won after Alanis.

    I will admit, though, that being a black female hurts Lizzo, a point you tried shake off as false.
