    I have to add Paula Cole, Marc Cohn, Jennifer Lopez (she keeps on releasing music but her last nomination was 2001) Brian McKnight.

    I am surprised that Jennifer Lopez did not get nominated in the Rap/Sung categories for some of her collaborations. Also, she should have won Dance Recording for Let’s Get Loud. I can’t believe that Who Let the Dogs Out won Dance Recording.

    No shade but the artists you mentioned lost relevance. So it makes sense why the GRAMMYs no longer recognized their music.

    A better example would be Erykah Badu. Even when she had noteable Urban AC hits like “Window Seat” & “Honey”, the GRAMMYs still snubbed her in the R&B Field.

    Whitney Houston is another case. After coming back strong with a Platinum album and a lot of buzz, she was ignored for “I Look to You”. Not even a R&B Album nod. Smh.

    If some of the voters saw Erykah Badu in concert, then it is no surprise that she stopped getting nominated. I saw her and Jill Scott in concert and I will continue to see Jill Scott in concert because she delivers. Erykah on the other hand would start singing a song and then stop halfway and go into something else. People sitting around me were not pleased with this.

    James Blunt received five Grammy nominations for his debut and was never nominated again:

    Record of the Year
    Song of the Year
    Best New Artist
    Best Male Pop Vocal Performance
    Best Pop Vocal Album

    Reminds me of Sam Smith.

    It’s too soon to make a call on Sam Smith. He may get a nomination this year.

    I love his work, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets that treatment. He does have more success than James Blunt (who remembers Beautiful?)

    That’s exactly the point. She could’ve win that Grammy easily. Till now still baffled me on how Baha Men triumph that year.

    A lot of those artist just started flopping or lost relevance.

    Alicia Key’s grammy history is interesting. Her first era had 5 wins. Then each subsequent era had one less. (5,4,3,2,1,0)

    Mariah Carey might fall into the category. She has a big year for her debut and even though her commercial success, relevancy, hits, image, remained consistent (and even increased) for the majority of the decade, she wouldn’t win again until much later.

    Quite frankly, Alicia Keys was over rewarded and did not deserve all of her awards that she won in 2002.

    Mariah Carey did receive Grammy nominations fairly consistently between 1991 and 2007 with the exception of 2002 to 2005.

    Mariah is a hit or miss at the Grammys. I don’t think she fits in this thread. One person I forgot is Billy Ray Cyrus.

    I think Aint it Funny and I’m Real were billed as Remixes and those weren’t allowed to compete back then…or something like that. So those easy nominations and possible wins couldn’t happen. I don’t know why they were called Remixes when all they shared with the original tracks were basically their names. They were very different songs.

    With her early success, I still can’t believe she lost to Baha Men.

    According to this list here, Billy Ray only got as far as four nominations. Every award though went to another act.

    God bless you and him always!!!

    Christopher Cross

    I think it’s because he fell off really quickly after the success of his first album. Honestly, he didn’t deserve all of the Grammys he won. Pink Floyd deserved a majority of them, especially AOTY for The Wall.

    Norah Jones is an example.

    I’ve heard Erykah is a very inconsistent performer. But I’ve also heard Jill Scott is a complete b…. I still like them Both.
