i wouldn’t be surprised if there are a lot more “non-pop” BNA nominees that most people haven’t heard of – like Arooj aftab.
Even with 10 nominees I doubt there will be more than 2-3 in pop.April 6, 2022 at 12:41 pm #1204906493
This. People are thinking because they got a surprise RotY nom this year, theyre getting in next year. Correct me if im wrong, but they wouldve been near i get a kick out of you wouldnt they (is it based on artist name or song title)? So boom. It was just a name check. Wont happen again
Artist Title, so they would’ve been first on the ROTY ballot, which obviously played to their advantage.
Song titles are listed alphabetically for songwriting awards onlys and that also advantages songs at the start of the ballot.
Look at Country Song & Song for VM for example, only one track in each category isn’t from the first eight letters of the alphabet.

Honey, this Grammy cycle is shitty. Adele will easily sweep again. #NoCompetitionApril 6, 2022 at 3:47 pm #1204906738
BNA really is looking so empty right now. But if I had to give it to anyone, it would be Muni Long. Her EP ‘Public Displays of Affection’ is so good, would love to see her nominated in Best Progressive R&B Album although that category is already looking STACKED. Latto is a close second. Big Energy can easily get into Best Melodic Rap Performance, it’s currently #3 on Billboard and will only keep gaining traction as we go into the Summer months. They might even decide to submit the Mariah remix.
Those are the only two artists I think are worthy of BNA so far.April 6, 2022 at 5:40 pm #1204906820
Adele’s fatigue? She hasn’t been nominated for a Grammy in 6 years lol I know a lot of people aren’t affectionate with another sweep coming from her but let’s take it easy. Since 2018, Bruno won 10 gramophones, Lady Gaga won 7, Beyoncé won 6, Chris Stapleaton won 6, Kendrick won 7, Anderson Paak. won 7, Brandi Carlile won 6, Billie emerged and won 7, Taylor Swift got 14 nominations.April 6, 2022 at 6:26 pm #1204906865
Was there really any “voter fatigue” with Billie Eilish, though? I just think she had the unfortunate situation of going up against a similar artist who was new and fresh, another Grammy favorite and a breakthrough with voters who had mass appeal across multiple fields. Billie still managed to get into every possible category based on a straight vote for a slow era.
Maybe there is “voter fatigue” with Adele, or maybe there’s not. Adele hasn’t done anything in six years.
And like I said before, HERE on Goldderby is where there seems to be an “Adele is not undeniable” trend but they are pretending as if the narrative that “Adele is undeniable” is bigger. I do wonder if she does sweep will people pretend that they predicted it all along. With that being said, Adele isn’t undeniable this time around, but it’s not like she didn’t have competition in 2015 either.April 6, 2022 at 7:04 pm #1204906896
I’m no longer saying Adele’s locked but I still don’t see who’s supposed to stop an Adele sweep.
Every argument against Adele should apply to Silk Sonic. Underperforming album? An Evening With Silk Sonic is like 1/4 as big as 30. Possible voter fatigue? The 24k Magic sweep was more recent than the 25 sweep and they just went 4/4.
The Harry Styles album is obviously gonna be massive but so was Fine Line and that lost to Dua Lipa. I don’t see how he’s going to go from that to beating the biggest darling ever.
Maybe there will be another person that no one besides abelfenty sees coming who ends up smashing on nomination day and winning AOTY but I don’t think any of the contenders we’re suggesting currently can beat Adele.

I’m skeptical about AOTY, but I don’t see anyone threatening Easy on Me in SOTY/ROTY/BPSP. Imagine competing against a nice crossover piano ballad with great vocals, #1 for 10 weeks. This ballad that received pop, country, rock, R&B/soul, hip-hop airplay and did wonders on the adult contemporary charts, was covered by Keith Urban, Kanye West’s Sunday Service, Blink-182. 30 seems very likely in BPVA as well.April 6, 2022 at 8:53 pm #1204907000
The voter fatigue argument just doesn’t hold any weight imo. Billie faced stiff competition this year. Olivia is the new “it” girl and completely dominated with her singles/albums. Silk Sonic & Jon Batiste are highly respected musicians within the industry. So Happier Than Ever losing every category isn’t surprising in the least bit. So much for being a favorite. Better luck next time.
Adele is also definitely locked at this point. There’s no real threat for her.April 6, 2022 at 9:03 pm #1204907007

I think Harry’s a huge threat, but I do think people bring up a good point about how Harry lost against Dua Lipa in Pop Album. I wonder how he can stand against Adele.April 6, 2022 at 10:27 pm #1204907060
If Beyoncé releases an undeniable massive number one hit, Adele is over. Drunk in Love and Formation weren’t as undeniable as RITD and Hello were.
Congratulations to Grammy Winners: Jazmine Sullivan, Doja Cat, SZA and Olivia Rodrigo!Not now
