Kanye West pissed on a Grammy and still got a nomination, so I wouldn’t overthink Justin’s little rant.December 1, 2020 at 7:17 am #1203886729
I think Dua Lipa is taking this. Smash top 2 hits rule this category, and Don’t Start Now is unarguablt the biggest hit nominated.
Next in line would probably be Billie Eilish, since voters are still in love with her. That said, I think Don’t Start Now will carry more passion to win, and Everything I Wanted can split the alt/lowkey votes with Cardigan.November 30, 2020 at 11:11 am #1203884969
Collier is definitely top 3 for AOTY. His album missed a committee-field, so it isn’t indicative of lack of support. And even then, he still got into R&B Performance.
I think if someone were to upset Taylor, he could be it. We’ve seen how important jazz voters have been (Esperanza Spalding, Herbie Hancock), and he’s considered one of (if not THE) best musicians currently alive.November 29, 2020 at 9:23 pm #1203883867
Dynamite winning isn’t far fetched tbh. It’s the only song nominated that’s still charting, and BTS will probably promote a little bit more. Recency could help them win.November 29, 2020 at 5:18 am #1203881878

Halsey has taken to Instagram to whine about the grammys again.
To me it comes off pretty shameless trying to piggyback on black artists getting snubbed to air your own grievances. Someone tell her manic was never in the race and the reason why she’s snubbed is very different from why black artists get snubbed.
The fact that Halsey is STILL pressed about the Without Me snub…November 27, 2020 at 3:58 pm #1203878276
After reading this list I have officially decided to quit music.November 27, 2020 at 11:50 am #1203877780
Then what is? Lmao. You Taylor haters throw your common sense and taste in the dustbin because you’re so blinded by your hatred. Exile is easily the best one in the category and it’s winning.
You do understand that people can have a different opinion than you, correct? I think Exile is winning but I don’t think it’s the best song nominated. That doesn’t mean I’m a “Taylor hater”. Please go back to stan twitter if you can’t respect other people’s opinions.November 26, 2020 at 3:17 pm #1203875975
People do too much. It isn’t a Grammy worthy song but it isn’t THAT bad.November 26, 2020 at 9:04 am #1203875149
Not sure what happened with the Duet version of AFY but whatever.
I think Ledisi can pull off a win, but I do agree Chloe x Halle have a lot of hype.November 26, 2020 at 7:16 am #1203874884

I disagree on Noah. Her new music is not only a very baity cross between Americana and mainstream pop, but she’s been building a lot of bridges with other artists from different genres. I don’t think nepotism can take you that far when your dad just won his first Grammy after a 30 year career and your sister’s only nomination was a tie.November 26, 2020 at 6:52 am #1203874821
Dua Lipa seems to be REALLY campaigning for that Grammy. Booking the final SNL episode of the year with Kristen Wiig was an amazing choice, Lizzo did last year and she ended winning 3 awards.
I also expect Taylor to do some more things after the Disney+ special. It’s gonna be interesting to see how much everyone fights for the award, but Dua and Taylor are definitely frontrunners.
I was talking to a couple of industry musicians and they all agree that the Collier nomination was “a huge step for the industry as a whole”. The cross-genre appeal of his album should not be underestimated as well.
Have heard great things about Black Pumas too.November 25, 2020 at 8:00 pm #1203873917
Do NOT underestimate Djesse Vol. 3. Jacob Collier is HIGHLY respected in the industry, he’s Quincy Jones’s protégé, and he has a lot of industry connections (Coldplay, SZA, Lizzo, Herbie Hancock, Rosalía, Chloe x Halle, Kiana Ledé, Tank & the Bangas to name a few). He’s also considered a music prodigy, and has a lot of jazz and classical supporters as well as popular genres.
