    I can already see a scenario where Olivia and Taylor winning both AOTY at the same time.

    Technically if SOUR wins, both Olivia and Taylor win lol.

    To be fair though, POTY and Engineered are still panel decided so HTE/Finneas missing may not mean that much. Last year EIW still won ROTY without Finneas getting a POTY nom.

    wait is there a source for this? I dont think Love For Sale would’ve been nominated if it was panel decided. Cuz it sounds like a namecheck.

    Edit: so unless I’m reading wrong, I just checked it does seem that POTY is named as a craft committee category (which means its still there) but not Best Engineered album: https://www.grammy.com/sites/com/files/bluebook_nominating_process.pdf

    I can see L4S winning. It would purely be a narrative win. Tony’s health, legend status + Gaga being super overdue in the GF. Hell I could even see them winning ROTY too (if it does I’ll just pretend Shallow won bc it deserved, but I digress)

    In order of likelihood. I honestly don’t see Olivia winning this, which means that the gap between the top 2 and the rest is massive.

    1. Billie Eilish
    2. Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga
    3. Olivia Rodrigo
    4. Jon Batiste
    5. H.E.R.
    6. Taylor Swift
    7. Lil Nas X
    8. Doja Cat
    9. Justin Bieber
    10. Kanye West

    The way people are counting Olivia out is something I wasn’t expecting.

    She’s the biggest name of 2021, got in ALL possible places at the Grammys, she has that singer-songwriter vibes that Grammy loves and her album was ACCLAIMED. I don’t care how many pop albums are there, she’s in top 3 for sure.

    Having said that, Tony/GaGa will win based on a narrative that I can’t support, and it will be the worst AOTY to win in this century.

    Olivia’s not going to win because she has Billie Eilish to siphon votes from her, and artists with bigger narratives (Tony Bennett) or genre support (Jon Batiste).

    Olivia’s nomination helps her in Pop Album and BNA.

    Unfortunately for Olivia, she comes across as too young to win amongst the nominees in the category.

    Even though Billie is close in age to her, she has a certain snob appeal that Olivia doesn’t.

    I think AOTY is Billie’s to lose.

    Tony/Gaga can win if their people promote it and campaign it right. They need to make it seem like an exciting choice and maybe push the narrative of Gaga never having won before.

    Jon Batiste isn’t happening. He’s like Jacob Collier last year.

    Gaga really is gonna win for riding the coattails of a beloved dying old man. Poor Tony probably forgot what a Grammy even is. I doubt he’ll even be at the ceremony.

    Jon Batiste and Jacob Collier is a silly comparison. Jon has nominations in multiple genres and media categories. He could surprise us.

    Honey, these nominations are rigged.  Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and Kanye West making it in.  Get fucking real!

    “Love for Sale” is the frontrunner, but Jon Batiste was nominated 11X for a reason. Widespread support among numerous branches is telling. No POC male nominee has won AOTY since Bruno Mars. He’s the one to watch out for here.
