    I do think some voters are more likely to vote for a young teenage girl than a confident sexual black obese woman.

    Why so grim? We’re not living in the 1800s anymore. I really doubt that voters are that racist. I mean just look at last year.

    If they were so much against black people as you guys think, why didn’t Gaga or Brandi Carlile win?

    It’s more of a genre issue. Voters have a bias against mainstream rap music, it doesn’t mean it’s a bias against black people.

    they like black people but a confident sexual black woman is another story

    On the other side there’s also a social justice warrior side very present in the liberal art industry. So it’s no surprise to see This Is America or Lil Nas X being pushed. But we’ve genuinely had like 3 black women winning a general field category in the last 10 years. And one of them is Beyoncé who’s been snubbed 363736 times to end with 1 win. I just don’t see a narrative for Lizzo to have a big Grammy night.

    Or some people may just think Billie is a better artist than Lizzo. Not everything has to be a race issue.

    Whenever a black person loses, people blame it on racism.

    Let’s be real… old white dudes from Utah are voting for Billie Eilish.  Race very much plays a factor.

    I would not be surprised if the rap field is relegated to the pre-telecast.

    Rap Album would be a good category to televise. All of the nominees would be first-time Grammy winners (unless J. Cole, YBN Cordae, or 21 Savage win during the pre-telecast), and if Tyler wins – which is likely – he would surely deliver a buzzy social media moment with his speech.

    I believe the bias against black artists is real but if Lizzo loses i don’t think that will be the reason. It’s gonna be a reason for artists like Kendrick, Beyonce, Frank Ocean and Kanye.

    I want one of the rap awards will be televised, it’s probably with the Nipsey winning.

    Does anyone have statistics on the youngest Grammy nominees/winners for Producer of the Year? I believe Finneas is the youngest nominee since Mariah Carey in 1992.

    It was a comment to a specific statement about Lizzo being the safer more traditional pick tho. Lizzo is just more a vocalist, which the Grammies do appreciate. But that’s the only factor in which she’s a more traditional choice than Billie imo.

    I think Finneas would be the youngest ever at 22. Mariah was 23. Michael and Janet Jackson, Ted Riley, Prince, Lauryn Hill, and Bruno Mars were also in their mid/late 20s.

    They should televise all of Ariana’s categories.  We all can watch her lose each category.
