Sisqo had a major breakthrough that year. Not even his group could get nominated for a Grammy. A win for him would have been more justifiable than Shelby Lynne’s.
Yeah, but his music is absolutely terrible. If he won, it would have been like when the Starland Vocal Band won despite being known for one of the most legendarily bad songs of all time. Lynne’s debut album was at least solid, even though she’s not nearly as influential as Jill Scott. A win for Brad Paisley would not age well when you consider that he later made the infamous “Accidental Racist”. I would give it to Scott, but I don’t hate the fact that the award went to Shelby Lynne.May 22, 2021 at 5:26 pm #1204266809
25 over Lemonade in AOTY is ridiculous

also just under nominating Melodrama, and having both it AND DAMN. losing to 24k Magic? ouch.May 22, 2021 at 5:46 pm #1204266830
Here’s one: Michael Bolton’s terrible cover of “When A Man Loves A Woman” beating George Michael’s classic “Freedom!’90” for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance in 1992.May 22, 2021 at 8:43 pm #1204266947
Get real! Bon Iver (BARF!) should NOT have won Best New Artist over J. Cole or Nicki Minaj.May 23, 2021 at 11:42 am #1204267620
When everyone won over MC in 2006. They even played her music when U2 (?) won.May 24, 2021 at 6:40 am #1204268679
“We Belong Together” was confirmed as the song of the decade by Billboard. It spent weeks at #1 and dominated practically the entire year. Mariah was robbed. That U2 song wasn’t even their best or most memorable.May 24, 2021 at 12:03 pm #1204269270

Oh the U2 comment was simply a preference thing. I guess in an ideal situation, MC would’ve won.May 26, 2021 at 8:24 am #1204273448
Sade never being nominated in AOTY! At least she won BNA and Best Pop Vocal for “Lovers Rock”May 26, 2021 at 11:09 am #1204273891
The Grammys tried tf outta Whitney by deeming her ineligible for BNA. The criteria for that category has always been a mess.May 27, 2021 at 11:34 pm #1204275991
Best New Artist is a mess. Shelby Lynne was nominated and won Best New Artist and it was her sixth album.
Below are the other nominees for Best New Artist
I would have voted for Jill ScottMay 28, 2021 at 4:57 am #1204276152
I’m not sure if this is a problem but they should’ve had eight nominations not only the general field but for every field.May 28, 2021 at 2:51 pm #1204276866
I don’t understand the win of “Don’t Look Back” by John Lee Hooker & Van Morrison over Tell Him, I Finally Found Someone or How Come How Long?
You think it was the result of vote splitting?
