So umm, 6 nominees in Rock Performance, 4 of them female solo performers, 1 of them a female lead band and one of them an all female band. Metal Performance has 1 female solo performer and 1 female lead band. Nice to have a surprise once in a while lol.
3 females; Maria Brink, Poppy and Reba Meyers (Code Orange). This if the first time that 3 women are nominated in this category.November 27, 2020 at 12:59 am #1203876998
*Rock song – Fiona
*Rock perf – Brittany (she is a previous winner)
* Metal perf – Body Count (not their best song, but Ice T is the most popular name for Grammy voters)
*Rock album – Sturgill
*Alternative – Fiona or Beck (Grammys love him)November 27, 2020 at 12:45 pm #1203877882
After listening to the nominees in the Rock Performance and Rock Song categories, my favorites are “Shameika”, “Stay High” and “Daylight”. It’s great to see this category being dominated by women.
Here are my predictions. Rooting for Brittany and Fiona!
Rock Performance: Brittany Howard-Stay High
Rock Song: Fiona Apple-Shameika (I think this is her best chance at a win)
Rock Album: Sturgill Simpson-Sound & Fury
Alternative Music Album: Fiona Apple-Fetch the Bolt Cutters (going back and forth with this and “Jaime”)November 27, 2020 at 1:07 pm #1203877948
I think Phoebe Bridgers can make an upset.November 27, 2020 at 1:31 pm #1203877988
BTW, Michael Kiwanuka should not be underestimated. His album won the Mercury Prize, and got loads of acclaim. If enough voters listen to it, he can win.November 27, 2020 at 1:32 pm #1203877990
Alt Album is one of the few categories I got 5/5 but now it’s hard for me to choose a winner. I think Fiona will take the song categories and Jaime will take Alt Album. I would love to see The Strokes win Rock Album and I think they actually have a shot.November 27, 2020 at 1:36 pm #1203877998
Impossible but I want the winners to split so badly (Fiona takes Alt Album, Brittany takes Rock Performance, Phoebe takes Rock Song, The Strokes takes Rock Album).November 27, 2020 at 1:39 pm #1203878003
I do think the song categories won’t split, as per usual. Fiona seems to promoting Shameika more than the album so she could sweep the song categories while Brittany takes Alt Album. Or even Phoebe takes Album.November 27, 2020 at 1:45 pm #1203878018
If they can televise Comedy Album every other year, then they should really televise Alternative Music Album. I do think Phoebe Bridgers is a threat.November 27, 2020 at 1:48 pm #1203878023
Honey, Phoebe Bridgers is NOT pulling an upset in Best Alternative Music Album. She may go home emptyhanded.November 27, 2020 at 2:04 pm #1203878057
