    It’s crazy because Lizzo, for example, submitted Truth Hurts in best rap/sung performance but the rap committee moved to pop and no genre confusion of the song hurt it from being nominated and winning pop solo performance.

    The same thing with Old Town Road, people say it is a country song, others say it is a rap song, but the song was submitted in pop and was nominated and won.

    So it is crazy to imagine that Blinding Lights was snubbed because there is no genre confusion in the song for it not to be nominated, it’s just a pop song like “Can’t Feel My Face”. I understand AH’s snub, I just don’t understand the song.

    I can’t feel too bad over BEYONCÉ’s loss, cause sure, it would’ve been a good winner, but the fact that it even lost to Pharrell Williams’ GIRL in its genre category shows me that the academy voters didn’t really vibe with it that much.

    So even without Beck, the award might have very well gone to someone else, and not Beyoncé.

    For all we know, BEYONCÉ was 3rd in AOTY, behind GIRL. Maybe even 4th if Sam Smith’s In The Lonely Hour was above her too, which isn’t too unlikely considering he won 3 of the 4 GF categories.
    So all in all, the album simply didn’t seem to be that strong of a contender.

    The opposite is the case with Lemonade, where I think she was definitely behind Adele (with a huge gap tho, cause duh, it’s Adele), so she would’ve won without 25 in contention imo.

    it would have been more deserving for her to win for Lemonade over 25. 25 was undoubtedly a commercial success. But it was nothing groundbreaking and that was the main criticism about it. But Lemonade will forever be an iconic album and era. Truly a masterpiece.

    I think the genre confusion would have been for After Hours. “Blinding Lights” is unarguably a pop song.

    I just don’t understand the constant snubs for rap artists in general fields. Doesn’t make sense. Particularly, black artists.

    At least since the system changed, I’ve become convinced that BRP doesn’t like nominating rap in AOTY because you need fewer votes to win in a field of 8. Look at Igor last year, which definitely would’ve been competitive.

    Before that, if they wanted to appear inclusive then they’d usually just put multiple albums in AOTY to split votes, like in 2018/2019. You could even argue that 2015 was an example of this with Urban Contemporary by putting Pharrell against Beyonce.

    well who would’ve predicted that the only artist who has the chance to sweep the 3 main categories is Dua Lipa. Imagine if she sweeps every nomination. She is 100% in her Grammy record after all

    Dua was underestimated, she literally knocked out Harry and The Weeknd from AOTY and left a Post Malone out of Pop categories. Actually she is the only artist in AOTY/SOTY/ROTY also appearing in all pop categories. I think Taylor has the edge of winning, but Dua shouldn’t be underestimated.

    If Dua starts winning the pop categories during Grammys night telecast, before we go to GF😭. After the noms day debacle, you can’t tell what’s going on in voters heads.

    Dua really shouldn’t be underestimated.

    Her winning BNA is still so impressive to me considering how low her profile & celebrity still was two years ago and how she only had one other nomination (and won that too!), which wasn’t even in the pop field.

    With the exception of Pop Duo/Group Performance, I think she’ll actually win all her categories. She just feels like the current It-girl of the Grammys to me.
    Plus if the last few years have thought me something, it’s that Grammy voters love their GF sweeps, and Dua is in a prime position to pull one off.
    I see her going 5/6 on Jan. 31
