Dua Lipas debut wasn’t that good, it is very funny though some people last summer were saying FN is not competitive on Pop Vocal because her last one missed.
It’s nowhere near Future Nostalgia lol, but it included her smash hit “New Rules” as well as many other great songs, and it’s also miles better than some of the albums that did make the cut that year.
FYC | Best music this season:
Arlo Parks - Collapsed In Sunbeams
St. Vincent - Daddy's Home

That was the Lady Antebellum SOTY/ROTY year win right?? The general field however was a fcking mess that year Them nominating for ROTY “Nothing On You”, “Love the Way You Lie”, “F*** You”, “Empire State of Mind” then eventually giving it “Need You Now” was…. not really surprising :((
It was upsetting to say the least.. but not really unexpected
Honey, yes. That was the year Lady A won ROTY/SOTY.
“Need You Now” + winning ROTY/SOTY = BARF!June 16, 2021 at 7:42 am #1204302594

Gucci + spilling facts = YES!
Um, other than “Empire of State of Mind,” I don’t see how any choice would’ve been better. “Need You Now” was an actual hit, need you remember. It peaked at #2 for a country song and I think was in the top 10 best performing singles of Billboard that year.
It’s one win in recent history I do not protest at all.

I just heard Doja Cat’s promo single and I think she’s one of the best lyricist out right now. If this is what she’s bring to Planet Her, I wouldn’t rule it out yet.June 16, 2021 at 9:08 am #1204302746

We got new Tyler, the Creator music this morning. Personally, I did not really enjoy it. But I can see it as a contender for Best Rap Performance. I also saw a fan theory that his new album may be out June 25th so who knows.June 16, 2021 at 10:37 am #1204302911
I feel Evermore is shortlisted for AOTY, I think the re-recording promo in September will help too.June 16, 2021 at 10:43 am #1204302924
I feel Evermore is shortlisted for AOTY, I think the re-recording promo in September will help too.
I honestly think the re-recording could hurt it’s chances as much as it helps it, yes it keeps her in the voters minds but the re-recording will be a turn-off to some votersJune 16, 2021 at 11:02 am #1204302950
Honey, get it Oscar and 2X-Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson!June 16, 2021 at 11:21 am #1204302986

Yeah, I didn’t get to see the original post.
I spent some time re-listening to the nominees and here are my thoughts:
Record of the Year should’ve gone to either “Empire State of Mind” or “Need You Now.”
If the argument was that the nominee lineup wasn’t good, then I’d understand. But everyone saying they chose the wrong song really has me deeply confused.
I never understood the hype over “Love the Way You Lie.” It’s, like, nothing that special. “Nothin on You” gets on my nerves, it sounds so cheesy. “Fuck You” is another one I never really understood the hype over, except maybe the music video or something.
“Need You Now” literally was the second best performing song on Billboard after “Tik Tok.” For a country song, that’s just damn right incredible.
Looking at the Billboard Hot 100 Singles of 2010, I wanna barf. I don’t remember that year much, but was that the best it had to offer???
So, I decided to look at the year-end lists of both Rolling Stone and Pitchfork to see what the critics were digging.
“Runaway” was at the top of Rolling Stone‘s list and second on Pitchfork‘s behind that Ariel Pink song. Arcade Fire also made the top ten of both lists with different songs, but my personal ROTY submissions for them would’ve been “Ready to Start” or “The Suburbs.”
Narrowing it down to the nominees, of course “Empire State of Mind” and winner, “Need You Now,” weren’t on either list given it was released in 2009 (see why that calendar year thing might not be such a bad idea, Grammys?).
On both lists, “Fuck You” ranked the highest at #2 (Rolling Stone) and #26 (Pitchfork).
“Nothing on You” ranks at #43 on the Rolling Stone list and nowhere on Pitchfork‘s.
“Love the Way You Lie” is on neither list.
From the 2009 lists,
“Empire State of Mind” is at #44 on Pitchfork and “Need You Now” is nowhere to be seen. Rolling Stone seemingly had no list that year, but on their decade-end list, neither song is present, and neither are any of the nominees on the 2010s list.
On Pitchfork‘s 2010’s list, again, none of these songs are present, same with the 2000’s list.
Basically what this implies is that the Grammys ROTY lineup that year was not good (shocking).
So, from acclaim, it’s probably “Fuck You” that was likely to win?
But my opinion really remains unchanged. It was either “Need You Now” or “Empire State of Mind” for me. I never knew the song was this hated. So shook.
