The 62nd Grammys is going to be a sequel to 2010 Grammys where Taylor Swift will win AOTY for the third time after fearless and 1989 won AOTY in 2010 and 2016.August 27, 2019 at 2:49 am #1203042356
I’m not talking about VMA wins correlating with the Grammys, I’m talking about general buzz and popularity which does often relate to the Grammys. To pretend Ariana or ASIB have any buzz right now is just ignoring the music scene. The VMAs are a good gauge for that. I think they both are contenders at the Grammys, but by no means are they the frontrunners. Lizzo, Billie and Taylor are on the voters minds as the artists of this year.
The VMAs do not correlate to the Grammys at all.August 27, 2019 at 3:01 am #1203042361
After the VMAs…
Jonas Brother vs. Camila/Shawn for Pop Duo or Group and I’d go with Jonas Brothers based on the energetic performance and staying power of the song.
Billie vs. Lizzo for BNA and I’d say Lizzo is in the lead even though losing here.
Taylor was always going to win here just for going, but it certainly is helping her cause now that the album is a critical and commercial success too.
Ariana’s buzz is dying, but the Best Artist award is a sign she’s still a contender.
Missy should get in Rap Performance / Song with Throw it Back now.
Rosalía is someone to watch at the Grammy’s… people LOVE her.
Lil Nas X is looking like a bit of a non-contender at the Grammy’s. He should have won more than one award here and that one felt like it was barely his.
Miley and Normani were really good, but the songs are still just OK.
Shallow not winning song shows ASIB buzz is dying.
How is Shallow supposed to beat a song that spent nineteen weeks at number one for best song? And the VMAs mean absolute shit, but Lizzo is easily winning Best New Artist if she is eligible. She plays instruments, raps, sings, writes, puts on great performances and puts out hits. She has absolutely no competition there.August 27, 2019 at 3:10 am #1203042363
Ariana’s buzz is ok and it’s not gone. She still has a whole new soundtrack album to come.
If this bitch promotes ‘Angel’ as she should, then it would boost not only her chances, but also Lana’s.

Lizzo, Billie and Taylor are on the voters minds as the artists of this year.
First round voting is 25 Sep – 10 Oct and for some categories there is a review committee phase before the final nominations announcement on 20 Nov. There are a lot of things that can change between now and then.
One thing we won’t see happening.
There aren’t going to be 4 x white pop female nominees in AOTY (perhaps not even 3 and perhaps no more than 3-4 females in total), so we won’t see Ariana, Billie, Taylor and Gaga all nominated.
TOOL are getting some great reviews from reviewers that have heard the album (release coming on Friday). Does anyone have estimates of expected sales?August 27, 2019 at 3:36 am #1203042378
You all said the same thing about 1989 for AOTY but see what happened…
1989 always been a favorite to win, lover doesn’t even get a nomination in AOTY.August 27, 2019 at 3:53 am #1203042395

Even if Lover gets an Album of the Year nomination, which I think it could but ultimately probably won’t, it wouldn’t even beat the other pop albums in contention from Ariana Grande and especially Billie Eilish, let alone other nonpop contenders.August 27, 2019 at 5:35 am #1203042453
Taylor Swift is already coming to taking AOTY and Best Pop vocal Album come January. Period.
keep dreaming. Don’t forget to tap my shoulder when you wake up
Chromatica: Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album.
Rain On Me: Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Music Video.
Alice: Best Pop Solo PerformanceAugust 27, 2019 at 5:47 am #1203042469
I don’t buy that “it’s much easier to give the prize to someone at the award”
Ariana didn’t show up and still Won 6 awards including a main one.
Little monsters just didn’t voted enough.August 27, 2019 at 5:56 am #1203042492

Ariana won 3 awards, Billie, Ariana and Taylor were the the top winner with 3 awards each.
