    The Grammy voters don’t care. There were two back-to-back sweeps in 2017 and 2018 and they still made Billie sweep the entire GF just two years later.

    The track record is even worse in ROTY/SOTY, which almost always go to the same song/artist if nominated in both, yet the Grammy voters obviously don’t care for that either, because it keeps happening over and over again.

    Spreading the wealth is not a very common concept or thought within the Grammy voter community

    Anyways, The Weeknd mentioned a “Too Late” video treatment in his Rolling Stone interview. (No mention of a next single though.) Thus, I’m assuming “Faith” and “Escape from LA” are coming later, since both were mentioned as well.

    Good to know he’s definitely here for the campaign.

    4 sweeps in 5 years, boring as fuck. That’s the main reason I’m not 100% confident that Abel is sweeping.

    2017: Adele – AOTY, ROTY, SOTY 2018: Bruno Mars – AOTY, ROTY, SOTY they don’t care about it.

    After Hours for AOTY is just not as strong as these two especially in such a competitive year. Besides Adele will always win

    If they truly want to prevent a Weeknd sweep, they’d probably block him in SOTY. If that does happen, I really hope H.E.R wins. Realistically I’d expect Post to get it though

    IMO, award shows like the grammy’s are just the music industry’s way to pat themselves on the back & make themselves feel special.

    That being said, according to HDD, less than 500 people voted in the 1st round last year TOTAL for all categories. How do you think this will impact the AOTY race?

    I didn’t say After Hours is strong or weak or whatever. The point here is that whenever they can they will give a sweep, regardless of a “boring” telecast or “predictable” conditions. We think too much about GF sweep possibilities, they don’t.

    really? I think his weakest link is AOTY not SOTY

    500 is very interesting. At this point, an album with 30 collaborators could get in BPVA by just having the collaborators voting for it which is ridiculous.

    I think Fiona Apple is a lock for an AOTY nomination. Yes, Fiona’s albums always have acclaim, but she never had the most acclaimed album of the year, bar none. And I think she is in great industry standing right now (i.e having three albums voted by industry on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time). There have been mentions about the album by Lady Gaga (same artist who rooted for Beck to win AOTY).

    There’s always that possibility of the Grammys not loving the album, but I think voters will take to this album more than her other albums. We’ll see.

    Well I guess now we know why No.6 Collaborations Project got nominated last year lol.

    There’s a video going around on social media of this Grammy voter showing the process, and he basically confirmed that it’s all a popularity contest in the first stage due to so many submissions. That’s probably why the Blue Ribbon Panel isn’t going anywhere.

    Same, and as much as I love his music, it’s boring to watch the show knowing one person is gonna take home everything, just like this year with Billie.

    The Weeknd will sweep because he’s been incredibly strategic:

    The campaigning.
    The promo.
    The longevity.
    Placing his album in Pop.
    Focusing on 1 single the entire era.

    He’s likely to tie Bruno with 6 wins in 1 night (ROTY, AOTY, SOTY, Pop Solo, PVA, & Music Video).

    Folklore could potentially win Pop Album, but if the GRAMMYS are feeling super lazy, After Hours will win that too.
