In regards to a post from the previous thread…
– Khalid’s Free Spirit will be submitted to Best Urban Contemporary Album instead of Best Pop Vocal Album.
– “Me!” is NOT happening at all.July 29, 2019 at 10:48 am #1203001118
Is it really that big of a year for Pop Duo/Group? I struggled to even come up with 5July 29, 2019 at 10:52 am #1203001121
Is it really that big of a year for Pop Duo/Group? I struggled to even come up with 5
-I Don’t Care
-Dancing with a Stranger
-Hey Look Ma, I Made It/High Hopes (Live)
-I’ll Never Love Again/Music to My Eyes
-and Old Town Road, if submitted here.
And that’s leaving out the minor hits and the expected new releases.
Ariana is releasing a song on Friday with Social House.July 29, 2019 at 11:50 am #1203001217
I know you guys have somewhat negative opinions towards Shawn Mendes, but I think He has really good chances at getting both Pop Solo and Pop Duo noms this year,
Shawn Mendes has two songs in the Hot 100’s top 10 simultaneously for the first time in his career (Señorita & If I Can’t Have You).
I am a little surprised at the potential for more success that these songs are showing. He has had successful singles before but before these two, In my blood had only peaked just outside the top 10, after a lot of promotion for it.
Billboard Hot 100: #10(+3) If I Can’t Have You, @ShawnMendes
[12 weeks]. *peak: #2*
Billboard Hot 100: #3(+1) Señorita, @ShawnMendes
[5 weeks]. *peak: #2*July 29, 2019 at 11:52 am #1203001223
I think Shawn will get a nomination or two.
I also think Sam Smith/Normani will be nominated in Pop Duo/Group.July 29, 2019 at 11:56 am #1203001233
I would be very disappointed in a Dancing with a Stranger snub. Also a little surprised. I would figure that if songs by Christina/Demi, Justin/Chris, and the Backstreet Boys could get in at the last awards. Dancing with a Stranger would too.July 29, 2019 at 11:58 am #1203001236
I’m on the fence about Shawn Mendes. Best Pop Solo Performance is weak enough that he can get in. Not sure if he’ll get in Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. I’m expecting some non-hits to get in again.July 29, 2019 at 12:05 pm #1203001242
I’m expecting Shawn to get in Pop Duo/Group Performance and possibly Pop Solo Performance. Not the general field, although “Señorita” is a long-shot contender for ROTY.July 29, 2019 at 12:20 pm #1203001270
Shawn Mendes could certainly sneak into that 4th or 5th slot in Pop Solo over the likes of Halsey and/or Lewis Capaldi.
Pop Duo/Group is already really crowded:
“Dancing With a Stranger”- Sam Smith & Normani
“I Don’t Care”- Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber
“I’ll Never Love Again”- Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper
“Old Town Road”- Lil Nas X ft. Billy Ray Cyrus
“Señorita”- Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello
“Sucker”- Jonas Brothers
“Sunflower”- Post Malone & Swae Lee
The fate of “I Don’t Care” and “Señorita” could be decided based on their longevity, and “Old Town Road” based on where it’s submitted. Lady Gaga is far from a lock here but of those 7, I think “I’ll Never Love Again” or “Old Time Road” would be the frontrunner to win upon getting nominated.July 29, 2019 at 12:28 pm #1203001281
Shawn is easily getting into pop solo, and likely getting into pop/duo.
I see Hey Look Ma potentially being snubbed if anything. Me! and OTR never had much of a chance. Sucker, DWAS, and Sunflower feel guaranteed.July 29, 2019 at 1:13 pm #1203001339
Yuck, I’m expecting that bland mess get some nods too but DWAS better get in this bitch as well.
Had Sam & Normani performed DWAS @BBMA, it could’ve gone #1.
The Pop Duo/Group category is so competitive that I could see it being left out.
Sam was snubbed before and Normani isn’t a proven solo act yet.
But if it’s between them or Sam Mendez/Camryn Castro, I hope the latter is snubbed.
