I think I saw that Taylor was doing an EW interview? She knows this is hers to lose so she’s definitely gonna go all out too.
For the record, I do still think Taylor wins. The most likely reason that Jacob would pull off an upset is because of the cross-genre appeal he has. However, it’s kinda hard to argue that a folk-pop album by a former country superstar doesn’t have also have that

dua’s performances tomorrow will be decisive since a lot of members will be tuning inNovember 26, 2020 at 7:06 am #1203874854
Honey, that Jacob dude is NOT winning Album of the Year.November 26, 2020 at 7:07 am #1203874857
Collier nom actually gathered so much praises, I haven’t seen a single bad talk about this passion pick. Honestly, the lineup will be great if Post slot is replaced by Fiona meanwhile Abel get in instead of Coldplay.
For you consideration :
Album of the year : folklore
Record of the year : Don't Start Now
Song of the year : cardigan
Best new artist : Phoebe Bridgers
Best pop vocal album : folklore
Best rap album : Alfredo
Best alternative music album : Fetch the Bolt Cutters
Best progressive R&B album : Ungodly HourNovember 26, 2020 at 7:07 am #1203874859
Maybe her actor boyfriend. Some swifties are obsessed with her private life, they’ ll go berzek is this happens.
Lol, I would love that. It’ll create so much hype for the mv but she would never ever do that. She’s become too private for that sort of thing.November 26, 2020 at 7:12 am #1203874867
If Folklore & Future Nostalgia cancel each other out because of their campaigns 💀November 26, 2020 at 7:31 am #1203874932
I think Taylor is locked for the win, but 2020 has also been a very strange year. This would be the best time to pull a WTF in AOTY. I hope voters actually do it. Taylor shouldn’t be given an easy win like that.November 26, 2020 at 7:41 am #1203874953
Folklore and Future Nostalgia are my favourite albums of the year.
Love them both but Folklore remains so much more superior and Taylor becoming the first woman to win AOTY x3 would be a great narrative.
I’m rooting for Dua to win ROTY.
Hopefully the voters also recognise the support Taylor has given to independent record stores throughout the pandemic.November 26, 2020 at 7:55 am #1203874991
Having now listened to all eight albums, here’s my thoughts and ranking:
1. Dua Lipa – Future Nostalgia
Pure unadulterated pop perfection. An emphatic glitterball of bops shows Lipa’s vision has no limits.
As her American counterparts morph into one another, Lipa stands tall as the reigning Queen of 21st Century pop.
Standout Track: Break My Heart
2. Taylor Swift – Folklore
A more relaxed album from Swift that flexes her poetic songwriting much stronger than her recent efforts.
One of the biggest popstars in the world lays it bare for all to hear in a comforting and rather beautiful album.
Standout Track: My Tears Ricochet
3. HAIM – Women In Music Pt. III
Vibrant summer festival accompaniment. In a year of lockdowns and quarantines this album is pure idyllic escapism.
The trio are finally getting the awards recognition they’ve deserved for their previous albums.
Standout Track: Now I’m In It
4. Black Pumas – Black Pumas
Soulful music tinged with nostalgia that carves its own original path.
It’s an album that belongs to be interwoven into a pulpy film seen on the biggest of screens.
Standout Track: Colors
5. Jacob Collier – Djesse Vol. 3
Synthy disco dance hedonism. There are echoes of 70s, 80s and 90s peppered throughout. It slightly defies genres, hence it not showing up elsewhere really. It’s an engaging and vibrant album.
Standout Track: Sleeping On My Dreams
6. Jhené Aiko – Chilombo
Jhené has a stunning voice and mixes it up with raps too. It keeps the 20 tracks alive and unique.
The album is very chilled (in the best possible way). Some may want pure vocal on the album but this feels more natural.
Standout track: Magic Hour
7. Coldplay – Everyday Life
A far more experimental album for the band. It lacks the hits that hook you into staying with it and it’s a lesser piece of work for it.
Arguably the biggest name check nomination of the category (and I’m a big Coldplay fan).
Standout Track: Orphans
8. Post Malone – Hollywood’s Bleeding
The one album on the list where the songs sound too similar to one another so it can be quite laborious to get through it all in one go. The hits are the best, though collectively it doesn’t pack much of a punch.
Standout Track: Sunflower

This can easily change but

Any chance of Taylor going empty-handed?November 26, 2020 at 8:18 am #1203875040
^ high in my opinion.
She’ll def. loose SOTY, Song for Visual Media and Pop Solo, and I can easily see Dua snatching Pop Vocal Album for having the more pop album, which then would make AOTY impossible (at least based on 60+ years of Grammy history), only leaving Pop Duo/Group Performance.
And there I still can see ROM prevailing.
