Many people (including Adele herself) thought Beyonce’s Lemonade should have taken the Grammy awards top honor that year. If Adele hadn’t put out an album that year, do you think Beyonce would have won Album of the Year or would they have given it to some other album?Reply

Beyonce didn’t win because of the color of her skin. Some other non black artist would’ve won that yearReplyCopy URL

David Bowie if they didn’t block him. They wanted Adele to win.ReplyCopy URL

Honey, Adele was just being nice since she has a hard-on for Beyoncé. BARF!
If Adele was NOT nominated, some bland white act would’ve won Album of the Year. Black artists stay losing due to racism.ReplyCopy URL

Yep. Besides Adele & Beyoncé, no one else was competitive for the win. Not even Sturgill Simpson.
Had Adele not released, ANTI would’ve rightfully received an AOTY nod.ReplyCopy URL

No, because they would have nominated David Bowie and he would’ve won.
He wasn’t nominated solely because they wanted to exploit the “Adele versus Beyoncé” narrative, knowing it would make the headlines + Adele would easily win and that’s what they wanted all along. That’s why they nominated Drake and not Radiohead or another white act to steal votes from Adele. Sturgill Simpson was too under the radar to be competitive, he wasn’t huge even in his own field.ReplyCopy URL

I don’t think so, she went 2/9 that night. David Bowie would have been nominated to replace Adele and won.ReplyCopy URL

Probably, though I agree it all depends on whether Bowie was then nominated in her place.
Can I just say as well that 25 was another frustrating example of the Grammy eligibility calendar. From 1989-24K Magic we had AOTY winners that were almost 18 months old beating more acclaimed, recent releases, which was a frustrating consequence of this system.ReplyCopy URLNot now
