That’s how I feel about her. She’s entertaining. But she’s reduced herself to kissing stan Twitter’s arse. And it seems like she has started being consciously over-the-top with her reactions in order to maintain meme status. In general, all these popular reactors have started over-doing sh*t and placating social media.
Bigquint definitely overreacts to stuff as does Ajay, but it’s entertaining.
That kinda feel forced. Trying to meme themselves, kinda pitiful.June 10, 2020 at 6:47 am #1203525301
So… had BNA rules changed in 2018, Cardi would’ve been eligible in 2019, and won by a landslide.
Transferring Latin Urban albums to Latin Pop Album to prevent Urban albums from beating Rock and Alternative albums comes across as an anti-Urban move to me. Reminds me the 2019 Latin Grammys… Makes me wonder if this could jeopardize what should’ve been an easy AOTY win for Bad Bunny at the Latin Grammys… I smell robbery. I now hope he makes it to AOTY at BOTH Grammys.
I did like the Melodic Rap change. But it lowkey makes me wonder if this is isn’t because of Truth Hurts & Old Town Road’s wins. Since the rise of Pop Trap and until 2020, Best Pop Solo Performance seemed like one of the most competitive genre categories. Now, it seems like Melodic Rap Performance will take its place.
eg.: the categories I mentioned last year
BPSP: Truth Hurts and maybe 7 rings would’ve been transferred (and the latter would’ve been rejected by the Rap committee). bad guy would’ve won the category, and probably Halsey & thank u, next would’ve snagged the 4th and 5th nods.
BPD/GP: Old Town Road would’ve been transferred to Melodic Rap (and probably win over Higher). boyfriend & Sunflower may be trap pop songs, but they do not contain rap verses. so they would stay. Sunflower would’ve most likely won.
Melodic Rap: with both OTR & TH getting in, I wonder who would’ve been excluded from the Rap/Sung lineup. I think some BPD/GP rejects would’ve made it to this category… Maybe MIA? if they allow Spanish language songs in here, Bad Bunny may eventually be nominated. Hopefully in 2021.
this year, amongst our most predicted BPSP and BPD/GP nominees, who is going to be transferred to Melodic Rap? I think Say So only. I don’t see that many Pop Rap songs in the Pop field this year.
TL;DR: I did not hate these, I am 100% in favor of more inclusive/borderline categories! but considering the “curent state and prominent representation” of the industry, it lowkey seems like they don’t want Trap Pop to beat Adult Contemporary music or African Americans to beat whites.
Album of the Year: "Call Me If You Get Lost" by Tyler, The Creator

OK, looking deeper, here are the new rules.
Roddy and Lewis wouldn’t be eligible based the bolded ones below.
BEST NEW ARTIST
FOR ALBUMS, SINGLES, OR TRACKS
SCREENING CRITERIA This category recognizes an artist whose eligibility-year release(s) achieved
a breakthrough into the public consciousness and notably impacted the musical landscape.
In adjudicating this category, the primary element to consider is the artist’s performance. If the
artist wrote most or all of the songs, this may be a secondary consideration. Production elements of
the recording should not be considered.
• Minimum releases to meet eligibility: five singles/tracks or one album.
• While there will be no specified maximum number of releases, the screening committees will be
charged with determining whether the artist had attained a breakthrough or prominence prior to
the eligibility year. Such a determination would result in disqualification.
An artist may not enter into this category more than three times, including as a performing
member of an established group.
• Solo artists and established duos and groups.
• Solo artists formerly with duos/groups, provided the duo/group had not attained prominence.
• New established duos/groups consisting of former solo artists or former group members,
provided that none of the previous solo artists nor the duo/group had attained prominence.
• New recording artists who previously achieved recognition in a different discipline, such as
songwriters, politicians, actors, astronauts, etc.
• Any artist who had achieved a breakthrough in a prior eligibility year.
• Any artist with a previous GRAMMY nomination as a performer,including a nomination as an
established member of a nominated group.
Exception: If an artist is nominated (but does not win) for the release of a single or as a featured
artist or collaborator on a compilation or another artist’s album before the artist has released at
least five singles or an entire album (and becomes eligible in this category for the first time), the
artist may enter this category in the eligibility year during which the artist’s fifth single/track or
first album is released.
• An artist with a previous songwriting GRAMMY nomination, if the nominated song had gained its
prominence through a performance by the songwriter as the primary artist.
Exception: If an artist received the nomination (but does not win) for writing a song that had
gained its prominence through a performance by the songwriter as the primary artist before the
artist has released at least five singles or an entire album (and becomes eligible in this category
for the first time), the artist may enter this category in the eligibility year during which the artist’s
fifth single/track or first album is released.
• Collaborations involving two or more individuals who are not an established group.
• Artists who have been credited only as featured artists.
• Choirs, choruses and large band ensembles (16 or more members).
• Non-music-performing video performers (e.g., dancers, actors).
• Musical craftspeople (songwriters, engineers, producers, art directors, remixers, notes writers,
• Any person active in public life whose entered recording was not intended to be the subject of a
• A group carrying on the name and tradition of a previous group that would be ineligible due to
number of recordings or prior breakthrough, even if the personnel changes.
• A group that would be ineligible due to number of recordings or prior breakthrough, even if it
changes its name.
* NOTE: The word “artist” is used inclusively to signify performing solo artists as well as
established performing duos and groups.
So shall I say that Harry Styles is a strong contender for BNA now or?June 10, 2020 at 7:08 am #1203525346
I would feel uncomfortable with Harry Styles popping up in BNA. It’s not like his previous album didn’t get any mainstream buzz, Grammy buzz and had no chart success. But the committee is likely desperate to fill those spots. So, I wouldn’t be surprised if they let him in.June 10, 2020 at 7:13 am #1203525351
Changes by Bieber is perfect for the description of R&B Progressive Album
Just like After Hours
Let’s see who gets nominated .

If Roddy Ricch wasn’t winning a Grammy next year before, he definitely is now with the change from Best Rap/Sung Performance to Best Melodic Rap Performance.June 10, 2020 at 7:25 am #1203525370
To all who say “The Box” is Rap Performance, think twice.June 10, 2020 at 7:27 am #1203525372
Honey, Justin Bieber’s Changes will be properly placed in Best Pop Vocal Album.June 10, 2020 at 7:33 am #1203525381
Changes by Bieber is perfect for the description of R&B Progressive Album Just like After Hours Let’s see who gets nominated .
I think that Justin will most definitely submit to BPVA. The Weeknd, on the other hand, will probably win in the Best Progressive R&B Album category.June 10, 2020 at 7:36 am #1203525387
Harry won’t be considered a new artist. There’s no way a panel could be convinced this is his breakthrough year… That’s rule number 1 on the list of ineligible artists.June 10, 2020 at 7:38 am #1203525398
I went through the changes over. I’m fine with them. I agree 100% with the Latin one, especially because of the Maluma and ROSALIA drama I noticed last year.
ROSALIA won Latin pop album at the Latin Grammys but would go on to win Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative album at Grammys, which, to me, wasn’t just cool. Her album was Billie Eilish-esque pop and deserved to have snatched the pop category.
Maluma on the other hand wasn’t even nominated for 11:11 at the Latin Grammys but would receive a nomination for Latin Pop in Grammys, which isn’t cool.
At least now that they compete side by side, that’ll be fine.June 10, 2020 at 7:39 am #1203525402
Get real! Harry Styles is NOT a strong contender for Best New Artist. He is ineligible. Duh!June 10, 2020 at 7:39 am #1203525404
I think that Justin will most definitely submit to BPVA. The Weeknd, on the other hand, will probably win in the Best Progressive R&B Album category.
Yes, but I’m talking about who fits in what
the description they gave for Best R&B Progressive Album is perfect for Bieber
Even Bieber himself says that the album is R&B, he don’t refeers to the album as a pop album.
But watch grammys nominate him in pop categories.
