Idk how Dawn Richards is eligible..wouldn’t that make Normani eligible? I’m gonna guess it’s because Dawn hasn’t had a huge breakout year and some could say Normani had a huge year in 2019 with Dancing with a Stranger and motivation.
Anyway idk why Tems isn’t a topic of discussion in BNA. She had a huge year. Collaborating with Drake on CLB, which could give her an AOTY nom. And featuring on essence by Wizkid with Justin Bieber on the remix. She’s bound to be nominated for both or one of those projects so why isn’t she apart of the discussion here?
Because afrobeats isn’t that popular yet but she’s definitely my best new artist this year. In a perfect world she would be in because her EPs are amazingOctober 23, 2021 at 9:39 am #1204534194
With confirmation that Finneas is on this year’s ballot again and no committee to block him, I think it’s safe to say he’s locked for a nomination. And while Olivia is probably still safe to win, he should still be considered a dark horse.October 23, 2021 at 9:56 am #1204534237
With Finneas in play I have a feeling this will be an Esperanza Spaulding type of year. I truly think she won that year because of vote splitting. And I think there’s definitely gonna be some vote splitting between Olivia, TKL, and Finneas.October 23, 2021 at 10:06 am #1204534260

Arlo Parks coming for that win! Yes, I’m a dreamer.October 23, 2021 at 10:08 am #1204534262
I feel like Finneas could be a surprise and if nominated i fear for Olivia’s chances of winning. After sweeping and winning back-to-back ROTY, i just think that Finneas will come with loads of support and probably a win.October 23, 2021 at 10:15 am #1204534270
After reading the Billboard article:
-The Kid LAROI
(Possibles: Jimmie Allen, Ava Max, Tate McRae, Rina Sawayama, Girl in Red, Yung Bleu)October 23, 2021 at 10:51 am #1204534317
Olivia Rodrigo in Best New Artist should be a complete lock. Finneas being considered for this is a joke in itself, and I’m sure if he makes it through, voters will see that he’s been honored way too many times to be considered “new” in any situation.October 23, 2021 at 11:17 am #1204534344
Finneas still trying it. He’s so greedyOctober 23, 2021 at 11:34 am #1204534373
Honestly, if Finneas wins it will be the biggest shit show. imagine having already 9 grammys but your 10th one is Best New Artist because you were still eligible under the rules lmaoOctober 23, 2021 at 11:38 am #1204534377
Finneas has been awarded many Grammys already, we do not need to reward him BNA. If he should be awarded a solo Grammy, I’d prefer him winning Producer of the Year, Non-Classical instead.

Olivia Rodrigo is winning Best New Artist whether FINNEAS receives a nomination or not. SOUR was too undeniable for voters to ignore her in that category. She’s the biggest lock of 2021. I can’t see anyone reasonably beating her. Not even a previous 6-time winner. Why is he even eligible?October 23, 2021 at 3:32 pm #1204534826
My current BNA predictions:
The Kid Laroi
Alternates – Celeste, Girl in Red, Ryan Hurd, Ava Max, Tate McRae, Niko Moon, Arlo Parks, Rina SawayamaOctober 23, 2021 at 5:21 pm #1204535076
I think that voters will do the general field last, so those that will be nominated in BNA are going to include anyone they voted for in genre categories.October 23, 2021 at 5:34 pm #1204535086

makes sense! in that case i can determine the positions of some artists:
Secured: Olivia Rodrigo and Arlo Parks
Safe: The Kid LAROI and Gabby Barrett
Possible: Maneskin and Finneas
50/50 chance: Saweetie and Celeste
Bubbling under: Tate McRae, Polo G, and Ava MaxNot now
