    I’m guessing “Leave The Door Open” will be pushed in Traditional R&B and something else in R&B Performance.

    Honey, this forum is overhyping Silk Sonic already and their album is NOT even out yet.

    Anderson Paak & Bruno Mars = R&B Voters Wet Dream. They’re Grammy Bait all over.

    They shouldn’t be underestimated at all

    Could “Leave the Door Open” be submitted to Pop Duo/Group Performance?

    Honey, sadly the R&B race is already over for next year.

    With the committees gone, this will make it easier for Pop acts like Ariana & Bieber to submit to R&B and possibly receive nominations / wins. Positions and/or Justice might go Progressive R&B…

    For the most part this field will be Silk Sonic vs H.E.R. vs Jazmine Sullivan vs SZA.

    The screening committee for proper genre placement still exists, so they can still be blocked from consideration.

    Ok good. I was about to predict “Peaches” in R&B Performance/Song..

    Justin competed in R&B before so he may get in again especially if he submits Peaches to R&B performance.

    I’m glad the R&B committee is gone after the obviously-set-up Summer Walker snub just to give Jhené an easy win (which backfired thankfully).

    R&B Performance
    1. H.E.R. – Damage
    2. Giveon – Heartbreak Anniversary
    3. SZA feat. The Neptunes & Ty Dolla $ign – Hit Different
    4. Jazmine Sullivan – Pick Up Your Feelings
    5. Brent Faiyaz & DJ Dahi feat. Tyler, The Creator – Gravity

    Traditional R&B Performance
    1. Silk Sonic – Leave The Door Open
    2. H.E.R. – Fight For You
    3. Lucky Daye feat. Yebba – How Much Can A Heart Take
    4. Ariana Grande – my hair
    5. BJ The Chicago Kid – Letter 2 U

    Best R&B Song
    1. Silk Sonic – Leave The Door Open
    2. H.E.R. – Damage
    3. Giveon – Heartbreak Anniversary
    4. SZA – Good Days

    This is interesting. This may stop Ariana/Justin Bieber nominations in the R&B field:

    “That means everybody can vote in the general field — out of around 12,000 voters, a certain percentage will vote, and that percentage will directly decide who the nominees are in the general field. Then outside of the General Field, you’ve got three fields to choose from, and in those fields you can vote in 10 categories. So that cuts down the number of votes to whoever feels they are experts in that field: say pop, R&B and hip-hop, or whatever. So the number is going to continue to decease based on the number of categories you choose to vote in, and that was done specifically to stop “vote grazing” or people following their favorite artist into genres that they don’t really know, like if the biggest pop artist in the world made, say, a folk album.

    This is from Harvey Mason’s interview with Variety. There must be something set online to avoid “vote gazing” vs. traditional paper ballots.

    Justin has never been nominated in R&B. However, he has been allowed in the field with Journals, but it wasn’t nominated.

    The only way the likes of Justin Bieber or Ariana Grande would be able to score a Grammy nomination in R&B would be if they were to feature on an R&B artist’s song or as a co-writer.

    Otherwise, they will rightfully be blocked from competing for their own work and moved over to the Pop categories.

    Bieber can happen. His main hurdle will be the screening committee accepting him in R&B, but if it happens he can sneak into getting a nomination.

    He’s high up on the list, and works with a lot of today’s biggest R&B artists.
