    Overhyping:
    Gary Clark Jr.
    Taylor Swift

    Underhyping:
    J. Cole
    Khalid

    Khalid is not being overhyped, and multiple GF nominations seem very possible. He’s been nominated twice in the GF before (SOTY + BNA) and he has one of the biggest albums/songs of the eligibility period.

    Also I agree with the poster saying too many of us are trying to find “this years Brandi Carlile”. Brandi had connections to ASIB and the soundtrack (obviously getting a bit of hype from that), campaigned throughout the year, and has had many celebrities including Barack Obama endorsing her. Her nominations were definitely surprising, but they could be justified. I’m not too sure if that’s the same for the likes of Gary Clark Jr.

    She’s Top 5 in the AOTY/SOTY odds and Top 8 in the ROTY odds when she’s clearly not happening in the GF.

    Thats just delusional stans who come in and mess up the odds! It’s just like how Shawn had the most votes for Pop Vocal album last year because his fans came in and screwed it all up. I pretty much ignored all the delusional swifties so I’m sure I’m not seeing even half of what you guys are seeing them say😂 my bad

    exactly. no one has really been claiming that taylor gets more than 3 nods who isn’t a swiftie so she isn’t really being overhyped at all. never take a look at the combined odds because those are full of people who don’t seriously predict and just put in who they want to win

    Gary Clark Jr. is probably a guarantee in the Rock categories for nominations, but I dont really see him getting lots of nominations in other fields as well.

    Overhyped 

    – Khalid being predicted for across the board GF is the only common prediction I see that seems truly unlikely.

    – Echoing what others have said, the Gary Clark Jr. predictions seem to be more of a “one person said so and it suck” situation. I guess I won’t be surprised if he shows up in the GF, but I agree that the reason he’s so heavily predicted has to do more with getting ahead of the “left field” nominee and less to do with actual logic.

    – I don’t think Billie and Lizzo are being overhyped, necessarily, but I do think that they’re being talked about with way too much confident for two brand new acts. Especially in Billie’s case, a teenage act who may or may not be taken seriously.

    Underhyped 

    – I don’t know if Maggie Rogers will have a huge night, but I could see her being a real contender in New Artist. She’s a singer/songwriter, and has support from a lot of big industry names (Pharrell, Kacey Musgraves). Her album performed extremely well for a virtually new indie artist.

    – Lana. Norman Fucking Rockwell is easily her magnum opus, and I think if she plays her cards right, it could be a true contender in AOTY. She’s a recognizable name, and the album is really really digestible for anybody

    P.S. – Saying TAYLOR!!! is being overhyped on these forums is genuinely wack0-insane-delusional. A handful of Swifties predicting her, in comparison to the legions of people writing dissertations on why rep’s underperformance last year means she’s dead to the Grammy’s, is nothing. I won’t go as far as saying she’s being underhyped, as I truly have no idea how she’ll perform come nominations, but patting yourself on the back for thinking that you’re in the minority for not predicting Taylor is such a joke.

    delusional swifties grab back! women grab back!

    Underhyped: Anderson Paak. Dude made two albums and some of y’all didn’t give him a chance except Traditional R&B Performance. He’s definitely getting multiple nominations on R&B, maybe Rap and GF.

    Actually think people overhype Lana. She has never been in GF, never does that well and only gets few nomination. People are predicting because they like her and want it rather than realistically. She is a contender yes but is still as much as long shot as people like Anderson paak.
