Can someone remind me of why Truth Hurts probably won pop solo over bad guy?January 23, 2021 at 4:03 pm #1203998030
because it was a better performance
It was, but I doubt voters also thought Shape of You was a better performance than Praying or Million Reasons.
Truth Hurts and Bad Guy were probably very close everywhere. Bad Guy likely got the edge on an expanded category since Rock/Alt and tech voters who likely went for it in the GF didn’t vote pop. Lizzo also had H.E.R and Lil Nas X taking votes away from her in the General Field.January 23, 2021 at 4:15 pm #1203998035
I like the fact that all the winners of Best Pop Solo Performance can sing perfectly their winning songs.January 23, 2021 at 4:22 pm #1203998041
wbk, that’s why Taylor has never won that categoryJanuary 23, 2021 at 7:17 pm #1203998221

A smaller voting pool than the general field and Truth Hurts appeal to more “demographics”. In The GF she was likely splitting votes with Old Town Road and H.E.R for hip-hop and R&B voters. Also the Academy seemed to be obsessed with voting Finneas everywhere.January 23, 2021 at 8:36 pm #1203998252

Honey, that part! Dumb ass users believe Pharrell Williams was ahead of Beyoncé in Album of the Year due to winning Best Urban Contemporary Album. That may not be true since every voter does NOT vote in the R&B Field. However, more voters vote in the General Field.January 23, 2021 at 8:44 pm #1203998264
I agree that Truth Hurts and Bad Guy were extremely close but it’s Billie’s major support with the producers/engineers/alt/indie voters pushed her over. Billie probably had their full support while, like others said, Lizzo split a bit with her other voting blocks. Similar to how I don’t think it’s impossible to see a Dua BPVA with a Taylor AOTY win.
ROTY: Don't Start Now
BNA: Phoebe BridgersJanuary 24, 2021 at 7:30 am #1203998719
A Dua BPVA and Taylor AOTY split is not happening. Splits like that never happen since they’re both in AOTY.
The only split i can see is Dua with Pop Solo and Taylor Pop AlbumJanuary 24, 2021 at 7:46 am #1203998745
