    Billie Eilish is easily winning in 2022 i think. These two are loved by award shows.

    Something very suspect is going on. And it’s terrible!

    Very deserved (and unexpected) win. Fight For You is phenomenal so I can’t complain. H.E.R. is clearly beloved by the industry.

    Girl, Billie is literally walking away with this award next year now. This sealed it.

    i don’t like her (LOL) music and it does seem sus. But I mean, I’m just more confused they choose her (LOL) to be the Black woman to coalesce around. She has no critical or commercial acclaim and mostly was in R&B circles pre-Grammy nominations. She definitely deserves it though, she has a BEAUTIFUL voice and homegirl can play instruments like it’s no ones business.

    HER needs to be bigger and put out an album though.

    I actually predicted that win. She had a lot of buzz due to the SOTY win, she had a #1 Urban hit recently, her movie was the only Best Picture nominee besides Trial of the Chicago 7 and overperformed, and she’s a musical prodigy that has worked and/or been praised by a lot of people. It made sense, especially with how weak One Night In Miami was and how much they don’t give a shit about Diane Warren.

    Nothing suspect is going on. Ppl need to stop with the industry plant crap..the movie had buzz. Billie will be nominated / likely win…I can see Ariana being nominated for the original song in Don’t look up.

    But will Diane Warren never win or what…

    H.E.R. has industry support. It’s plain and simple. When multi-instrumentalists and vocalists such as Jamie Foxx, Alicia Keys, Toni Braxton, etc. support you, “critical and commercial acclaim” is secondary. We’re living in a world now where R&B is constantly swept under the rug for melodic trap music, so commercial success is irrelevant (H.E.R. has that anyway). Critics are biased and have had less impact on the public than ever before. There will always be a place for artists like H.E.R. She’s talented and inoffensive, and she seems to appreciate the success she has obtained. And she has a team that supports her. It’s really not that difficult to comprehend.

    Who should be getting more industry clout? SZA? Someone with social anxiety like Summer Walker?

    You can appreciate her talent, and still admit she is very obviously a plant/well connected. She’s been in the industry since a VERY young age, won Disney singing competitions in her childhood, and was being trained by some of music’s top producers.
    The type of award success shes receiving is unheard of for someone like her. Firstly, she is NOT critically acclaimed. She doesn’t even have a Metacritic page, and her last “EP” received a flat 6.0 from Pitchfork, the only mainstream review publication to review it. Secondly, she is not commercially successful. She has only had one true hit, Best Part, and it wasn’t some massive song.

    The 3 other artists in recent history who received this type of award treatment; Adele, Sam Smith, and Billie Eilish, were all commercial juggernauts.

    For people to sit here and act like her wins are organic and very well deserved? 💀
