Why does the Grammys not have ‘best vocalist’ in their top ‘4’ categories?January 11, 2021 at 10:24 pm #1203978658
Pointless category.January 11, 2021 at 10:35 pm #1203978670
Eh? That’s like an offence to every singer? If I was a singer I’d want to be commended for my vocal skillsJanuary 11, 2021 at 10:43 pm #1203978688
It’s included in Record of The Year as a part of the production in general.January 11, 2021 at 10:47 pm #1203978696
Because it doesn’t reward music specifically like every other category (other than BNA which also shouldn’t exist in my opinion).
If only it were a category though, the Taylor sweep every year… whew😁
Taylor Swift- AOTY, SOTY, Pop Duo/Group Performance, Pop Vocal Album
Phoebe Bridgers- BNA, Rock Song, Rock Performance, Alternative Album
Dua Lipa- ROTY, Pop Solo Performance
Chloe x Halle- Traditional R&B Performance, R&B Song, Progressive R&B AlbumJanuary 11, 2021 at 11:10 pm #1203978725
Yes exactly but record of the year is not Best Vocalist, it should be included, cos that’s like putting best acting performance into best pictureJanuary 11, 2021 at 11:24 pm #1203978745
If Best Vocalist has to exist, then Best Mixer, Best Recording Engineer, Best Mastering Engineer individually for a song/album should do too. Completely unnecesary.January 11, 2021 at 11:50 pm #1203978787
Honey, Best Vocalist should totally be a category. Christina Aguilera would always fucking win.January 12, 2021 at 12:01 am #1203978800
Completely disagree Maxinho, the Oscars have top 5 which doesn’t include best editing, cinematography etc, the Grammys should include Best Vocalist in their Top 5 at the moment they just have 4 which is an insult to great vocalistsJanuary 12, 2021 at 3:41 am #1203978963
sounds more like a career award than an annual oneJanuary 12, 2021 at 3:53 am #1203978975
Artist of the year makes more sense than vocalist
For you consideration :
Album of the year : folklore
Record of the year : Don't Start Now
Song of the year : cardigan
Best new artist : Phoebe Bridgers
Best pop vocal album : folklore
Best rap album : Alfredo
Best alternative music album : Fetch the Bolt Cutters
Best progressive R&B album : Ungodly HourJanuary 12, 2021 at 8:03 pm #1203980606
Because Grammys are not THE accurate metric of talent 🙂
Actual talented vocalists and performers tho (like Whitney, Prince, MJ to name a few) would’ve smashed. Real talent.
The music industry would’ve been suffering as much as it is today. They wonder why nobody not watches (sTrEaMinG blah blah) but actually CARES about award shows anymore. Because there’s no more TALENT to see now.
*Best vocalist and best choreography* categories could’ve singlehandedly elevate the levels of talent and quality in the industry.
And most importantly…
**Because Black artists would’ve thrived.**
