    How do you know that a few members told Taylor this? She didn’t seem like she was expecting this happening when she heard “ra” and thought it was Red. She was totally surprised at that moment which ended up being an internet meme.

    Duft Punk’s win was obvious from the beginning, wasn’t it? Especially after JT’s snub.

    She said it herself in an interview. I don’t remember when or where, but I’ve seen the video myself.
    I also thought it was obvious that Daft Punk would win at the time, but if you search on Google, you’ll see a significant number of “experts” predicting Taylor. Maybe because her album was the best selling of the bunch.

    I think you misunderstood what she said, but here’s what she said:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-B7un260YU

    Grammy voters don’t know who the winner is.

    She said it somewhere else that some voters told her she was gonna win. I’m quite positive about it. And yes, they don’t know, that’s why they were wrong after all. lol

    Officially, nobody knows the winners because the votes are counted by a company specialized in contability and things like that.  Only the people who make the envelopes with the winners know what’s written, in theory. In the day of the ceremony they probably open the envelopes to know what categories to present live or not and plan the whole thing, but that’s it. So things like posters and nominations albums’ content shouldn’t be seen as clues. The information isn’t, or at least shouldn’t be out yet, to ensure something like this wouldn’t happen. They don’t want people to know who is gonna win weeks before the real thing, so what would be the point in making someone look like an obvious winner?

    You’re the one who seems like they’re on coke! You talk about Gaga 24/7 and are always so awful and toxic to everyone on this site. PLease leave and never come back!

    These damn Gaga fans voting like crazy on every poll but when it comes the time to buy the album, they’re nowhere to be found.

    What are you talking about? Joanne is Platinum in the US, she did fine in terms of album sales this era. 600k pure sales is pretty good for this day and age.

    Get real! 600K in pure sales is NOT good. In fact, it’s craptacular. Let’s stop making excuses for an album that tanked.

    600k is nothing special…

    Lol, what do you call good? You call Gaga a flop for 600k pure in the US. Then y’all be saying reputation flopped yet it has almost sold 2million.

    I was going to say something about how not everyone can sell like Bey or Xtina, but the former rarely gets hits anymore, and the latter has flopped harded than Selena Gomez in 2017.

    I’m not a Gaga fan, but Joanne was a great album, and 600k pure in 2017 is very well. I mean, not even 3 of the 5 AOTY nominees have outsold Joanne.

    Honey, let’s cut the bullshit! Some of you claim Rainbow sold “well” when it bombed big time. It’s rather obvious y’all are making excuses for your faves.

    I’m not. Rainbow sold well. Because, in these days, selling more than 200k pure sales is well. More than 500k pure sales, great. More than 1 million, very rare.

    So, 600k pure is actually great for an album. As much as I like you and agree with you in a bunc of stuff, this nonesense and bias against some artists is just dumb. But hey, focus on Xtina for now. I’m sure she’ll need some sales.

    Honey, you’ve got to stop deluding yourself. 200K in pure album sales is abysmal. 600K in pure album sales is atrocious for an artist of Lady Gaga’s caliber. There is no bias, dear. A spade is a spade!

    200k is good for Kesha after a 5-year media blackout.

    600k is good for Lady Gaga after the ARTPOP blunder.

    However, neither of those can hold a candle to Ed Sheeran’s numbers.
