Let’s be honest: Roddy Ricch should’ve been eligible for & won BNA.
Lewis Capaldi’s omission is understandable considering that SYL was nominated for SOTY. His breakthrough happened during the last GRAMMY cycle. Fair.
But Roddy won as a feature. A FEATURE! He didn’t blow up until 2020. Before this year he had no prior album in consideration. So technically he is a new artist. The rules need to be re-evaluated ASAP.
I don’t agree. The Grammys’ stance that if you’ve already won a Grammy as a performer you shouldn’t be eligible is fair. It just needs to apply consistently to all Grammy winners.
Winning a Grammy before your debut album is an impressive feat, but they should spread the love around to artists who haven’t gotten their shot to win yet.October 25, 2020 at 11:29 am #1203801646
Meghan Thee Stallion
She’s not that far off from Bridger’s sound, but do we know if Clairo is eligible? Could sneak in if so.October 25, 2020 at 11:32 am #1203801655
Imagine Finneas being nominated for and winning BNA after winning six awards the year before. The backlash would be hilarious. The BRP is there to override whatever the screening committee allowed, and that’s why people shouldn’t get too upset just yet.
it’ll be hilarious is he gets nominated. he has a Grammy for SOTY for god’s sakeOctober 26, 2020 at 10:40 pm #1203804622
Rina delivered an incredible performance on Fallon tonight.October 26, 2020 at 11:42 pm #1203804642
Rina delivered an incredible performance on Fallon tonight.
So freaking amazing.
Compare your spotify listening with me at musictaste.space (code: charismatic-celery-439)! Which one of y'all just compared with me and scored 79? That's insanely high...October 27, 2020 at 6:11 am #1203804918
I know any voter who didn’t vote for Rina in BNA is embarrassed right now. She was so good on Fallon.October 27, 2020 at 6:49 am #1203804993
I read that Whitney Houston wasn’t eligible for BNA because she was featured on a random song that wasn’t even nominated for the Grammys a year before she released her debut album
As a result of having recorded this duet in 1984, Houston was disqualified from consideration as Grammy Best New Artist of 1985.
But these days we have artists submitted for multiples years for BNA. We even have 6 time Grammy winners submitted for BNA too lmao
For example Megan shouldn’t be eligible anymore. She got hits the last eligibility period and she was submitted and snubbed. After that an artist shouldn’t be eligible for BNA anymore. The same goes to Alessia Cara and Dua Lipa.October 27, 2020 at 7:09 am #1203805029
Honey, the Best New Artist rules were super strict back in the day.October 27, 2020 at 8:15 am #1203805093
I think FINNEAS deserves a nomination, yes he is a 5 time winner but that’s as a producer and a songwriter not a performer. He probably won’t get nominated thoughOctober 27, 2020 at 9:06 am #1203805234
I hope Rina’s performance sways the panel…October 27, 2020 at 9:44 am #1203805349
It’s curious, how every time they update the grammy rules, there’s always an exception. They should just limit to the artists who release their first album or songs that eligibility period and call the day. Stop pretending you discover someone who is already successful after years of their actual debut. lolOctober 27, 2020 at 10:07 am #1203805437
If Rina is not in I will be so madOctober 27, 2020 at 10:10 am #1203805442
Billie’s brother in BNA would be the biggest joke everOctober 27, 2020 at 10:45 am #1203805562
Rina was so great on Fallon. I will be super bummed if she doesnt get that nom.
