    But I definitely agree with how fickle voters can be. Sam Smith in this regard, from almost absolutely sweeping the entire field, to not even getting a single nomination for his follow-up work. Should’ve gotten at least one nomination. Which what almost, IMO similarly happened to Lorde.

    Sam goes by They/Them pronouns, for some the Grammys are just over Sam when they keep bringing favorable results both critically (all albums are still green in metacritic) and commercially (Love Goes being an multi billion streamed album and waiting for it’s platinum certification in the states), it’s ridiculous at best

    Oh so sorry for that.

    **Also I appreciate the heads up.

    Absolutely. I agree. I never understood the sudden shut out for them. Sam didn’t reached the heights of their earlier music (which btw was extremely massive) but they never really “flopped” or underperformed in an unprecedented way. (commercially and critically) “Thrill Of It All” (and their works after) was an album that absolutely deseved at least some recognition. So overlooked.

    Sam’s In The Lonely Hour album was definitely their peak era but amazingly they have remained consistent in both the USA (62M RIAA units sold) and Globally (over 30M albums sold), it’s just so puzzling…

    Yeah. For sure. They actually had a decent sophomore year than most to be honest. Also kudos to the fact that they have continued to do and explore different sounds/music since then..

     
     
    **Also for Grammys 2019 (Pop categories) Camila Cabello that year imo should’ve gotten BPSP(Pop Solo Performance) and ROTY (for “Havana”). Sam Smith for BPVA (Pop Vocal Album).

    Sam Smith & Normani deserved a nod for DWAS. The Grammys did them dirty.

    The fact that was snubbed when it was still one of biggest hits of 2019,  that clearly showed they suddenly have an negative bias towards Sam, I just don’t know why…

    With that logic, let’s predict Alessia Cara too, then.

    Lorde also missed nominations in her follow-up year for “Team” so don’t act like I’m only using 2 Grammy ceremonies as a reference. Voters moved on.

    Huh

    There’s zero correlation between Lana/Lorde and Alessia Cara and that’s a matter of common sense. She’s quite literally a one hit wonder while both of them are respected, acclaimed artists. They’re pretty much above her in commercial success too.

    Nevertheless, I only mentioned a possibility. I’m not predicting them either but merely suggesting them as a wildcard in BPVA because as long as they’re in contention and they have a history at the Grammys, they are a possibility no mattter how unlikely.

    No, she isn’t. She has four top ten hits (which is more than Lana and Lorde combined).

    A little fact checking would help next time you want to pop off. In any case, your argument is only a distraction. The point is that like Alessia Cara, voters have moved on from Lana and Lorde.

    “Levitating” is the biggest hit of the year and Dua Lipa is quickly becoming a voter favorite. Unless Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett release a single before the deadline, she’s winning.

    is she? she struggled to won Pop Solo which was almost a lock according to GD

    It was not a lock. She was competing against a smash hit by Harry Styles, a hit single from the artist who swept the previous year’s Grammys, a song from the AOTY frontrunner (and eventual winner), and another big, ROTY-nominated hit from that year.

    “Levitating” is clearly the frontrunner for Pop Duo/Group Performance. Its biggest competition is from Justin Bieber, who she has more Grammys than (and who she beat out for an award just this year), who doesn’t have a solo Grammy to his name, and who failed to win the category with a much bigger hit a few years ago.

    Spotify:
    Levitating – 1.1 billion
    Peaches – 677.3 million
    Kiss Me More – 518.2 million

    Last year’s Grammy pop categories:
    Pop Solo – Dua, Bieber, Doja nominated
    Pop Duo/Group – Dua & Bieber nominated
    Pop Album – Dua and Bieber nominated, Doja passed over, Dua won

    Pretty clear cut to me

    Sour ~ Olivia Rodrigo

    Evermore ~ Taylor Swift

    Justice ~ Justin Bieber

    Positions ~ Ariana Grande

    I think a everyone predicting a win for Levitating (Remix) is forgetting one thing, Dababy, who is one of the most deplorable faces in music currently and hasn’t received love in his own rap field. Rockstar should have been a easily win.

    Keep in mind Pop voters are more sensitive about the character of the artist they are/aren’t voting for.

     

    I think best pop duo will go to Peaches or Kiss Me More. I almost forgot Gaga and Tony but if they drop, then I predict them.
