It all comes down to who gets nominated imo, for example if Billie gets in with Rosalía it’s over for Dua x DaBaby.
Lol Billie is not winning with a forgotten song that bombed commercially, especially considering Pop voters said no to ROTY winners “bad guy” and “everything i wanted”. Pop Duo is going to Gaga & Tony Bennett.March 16, 2021 at 1:45 pm #1204139086
This is kinda obvious but I’ll point it out anyway. Had the BRP not blocked Harry Styles in the GF and let Fine Line get nominated in AOTY, it most likely would have opened the path for Future Nostalgia to win. Harry definitely would’ve stolen the rock/alt vote from Taylor and they would’ve split (like they did in BPVA).
I do think folklore is more deserving of AOTY than Future Nostalgia though, so I’m glad it won. ROTY is the only category I’m really upset with.March 15, 2021 at 5:52 am #1204132786
Woke up kinda disappointed that “Don’t Start Now” went 0/3, I felt it deserved something. I really don’t think Dua will ever release a better song.
Also Taylor and Dua stans really argued for months only for Billie Eilish to win more GRAMMYs than both of them (on her off year).March 14, 2021 at 9:21 pm #1204130696
Alt/Rock voting block is HUGE. I would not be surprised if 7-8 alternative albums made the top20 for AOTY.
folklore and “everything i wanted” winning in the GF proves how influential those voters are.March 14, 2021 at 8:49 pm #1204130379
I’m all for spreading the wealth, but that’s a terrible ROTY winner. Sorry.March 14, 2021 at 7:52 pm #1204129127
I remember dragging Deemy to hell for predicting Harry and Dua to split in Pop, but he called it pls. Congrats to Deemy LOL.March 14, 2021 at 7:49 pm #1204129047
AAAHHHHHHH I AM SO FUCKING HAPPY & PROUD. FUTURE NOSTALGIA POP VOCAL ALBUM BABY!!!!!!!March 14, 2021 at 3:54 pm #1204125350
Taylor lost all song categories in 2016 when she won AOTY for 1989. It’d be ridiculous to rule her out now. She’s still the frontrunner by a mile.March 14, 2021 at 3:34 pm #1204125142
Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande beat Taylor Swift and Dua Lipa in BPDGP. What this means? Neither Taylor nor Dua has overwhelming support this year that would’ve resulted in a name-check across all categories.
I agree Dua Lipa does not have overwhelming support, but UN DIA losing in Pop Duo doesn’t necessarily prove that. The song was literally 5th.March 14, 2021 at 3:31 pm #1204125104
Spreading the wealth >>> sweeps
I’d be happy if DSN won an award or two.March 14, 2021 at 2:27 pm #1204124004
So happy for Fiona even though I’m bombing with predictions.
I don’t think Jack losing POTY hurts Taylor that much, a lot of people are overreacting.
