    I couldn’t believe people thought Lemonade would win over 25. Adele is white and sold 10 mil.

    WTF are you thinking? Adele won because her album is better than Beyoncé’s and not because she was fcking white. How come people are being so race-conscious when it comes to stuff like this? Come on, it’s all about quality and taste and not about color.

    Beyoncé won 6 Grammy’s in one night when she made music that the voters like.

    I really doubt it’s a race issue. And again she won those grammy’s over competitive white artists. I think the voters simply preferred 25, which is a good album.

    Now of course, the majority of the voters are white, so music that appeal to that demographic is likely to find more success at the Grammy’s. But what I’m disputing is the claim that voters voted for Adele “because she is white”. That’s not the case. If she made music that isn’t “safe” and didn’t appeal to the voters, she would’ve lost regardless of her skin color.

    Beyonce is the most over-rated artists ever alive.

    She would be, if Lady Gaga didn’t exist.

    Pharrell managed to win over heavy competition in Pop Solo and beat out Beyoncé in R&B, a field Beyoncé has dominated since DC days. He won ROTY the year previously. So, his support outside of the R&B field was clearly there. Not to mention, Sam Smith won ROTY, SOTY and BNA – almost a near sweep of the general field. How do one come to the conclusion Beyoncé came in 2nd place? I’m willing to bet she did not. The hype for that album was mostly a fan thing and not an industry one. I wouldn’t be surprised if she was fighting for scraps with Ed Sheeran.

    I think she was third. Pharrell’s wins were thanks to Happy’s success. They really wanted him to win as many Grammys as possible, but AOTY was too much IMO and they knew Beyoncé was “supposed” to take it, so I believe there were voters who tried to spread the wealth, leaving AOTY for her.

    Sam Smith was obviously runner-up(3 GF wins) then Beyoncé, then Pharrell, then Ed. It was probably a close race between all the 5 nominees considering Pharrell was able to beat Beyoncé in Urban Album, and both Beck and Ed probably stole a few of Sam Smith’s votes. His wins in ROTY and SOTY were too obvious considering his competition(Sia was the only possible upset and her song didn’t even hit top 5), they set him up for the win when they nominated Fancy, Shake It Off and All About That Bass, none of those songs would win. Hozier wasn’t a real threat because he was an one hit wonder.

    I honestly would’ve given the award to Sturgill.

    Me too. But then again, 25 was just undeniably good.

    I really don’t know what the Grammy looks towards when awarding AOTY. They could give to mainstream darlings like 25, 24k Magic, or 1989, while giving the award to critical darlings like Beck, Kacey Musgraves, Arcade Fire. I honestly want to ask the Grammy voters what defines Album of the Year. The biggest album? If that was the case BEYONCE  would have one against Morning Phase. Critical Darlings? If that was the case Lorde, Kendrick, Jay-Z, and Childish would have one against Bruno Mars.

    FYC:
    AOTY: Fetch the Bolt Cutters or After Hours
    ROTY & SOTY: Blinding Lights & Don’t Start Now
    BNA: Megan Thee Stallion or Rina Sawayama
    Rap Album: RTJ4
    Pop Album: SAWAYAMA
    Rock Album: The New Abnormal
    R&B Performance: Do It

    when they nominated Fancy, Shake It Off and All About That Bass, none of those songs would win.

    “Shake It Off” or “All About That Bass” probably would have had shots at the win had they not been so recent at the time (that’s probably also why “AATB” missed the Pop Solo nomination; Taylor got in with a newer song but Meghan’s name was less familiar).

    Girl please your obsession with Gaga is almost becoming a medical condition. No one even mentioned Gaga.

    What they meant is that Adele makes “white people music” which is basically a synonym for forgettable pop ballads.

    Not saying I agree with it.

    Except Adele has probably made some of the most memorable songs of the ’10s. Just because she makes easy listening doesn’t mean her songs haven’t impacted anyone or are “forgettable.”

    Well, I did since we were talking “overrated”.  Can I?

    Isn’t Christina Aguilera white as well? And used to be successful? Why has she not even been nominated for aoty?

    Lots of white people are snubbed even when they are successful,  and that was very common before 2010. It was in 2010 that being successful = AOTY nomination became an unwritten rule.  Adele is still overrewarded by the Grammys because she’s white, but above all, because she’s safe.

    “Shake It Off” or “All About That Bass” probably would have had shots at the win had they not been so recent at the time (that’s probably also why “AATB” missed the Pop Solo nomination; Taylor got in with a newer song but Meghan’s name was less familiar).

    I don’t believe either of those songs had a shot because of their style(and in Meghan’s case, because she was very much one hit wonder and not “serious” enough), but being too new was another downside, knowing the Grammys. Usually the winners had time to settle down before the nominations.
