I had a feeling that the 63rd Grammys might be a repeat of the 48th Grammys(2005) in terms of General Field winners.
AOTY – How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb by U2
ROTY – Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day
SOTY – Sometimes You Can’t Make It on Your Own by U2
Best New Artist – John Legend
My realistic GF winners for the 63rd Grammys this January 31, 2021:
AOTY – folklore
ROTY – Blinding Lights
SOTY – cardigan
BNA – Meghan Thee Stallion or Phoebe BridgersSeptember 2, 2020 at 9:46 pm #1203683260
- 2020 – Billie, Lizzo, H.E.R.
- 2019 – Kendrick Lamar, Brandi Carlile, Drake
- 2018 – Bruno Mars, Jay-Z
- 2017 – Adele, Beyonce
- 2016 – Taylor Swift
- 2015 – Sam Smith
- 2014 – NA
- 2013 – Fun
- 2012 – Adele, Bruno Mars
- 2011 – Lady A, Eminem
- 2010 – Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Lady Gaga
All these artists got nominated for all major categories (AOTY, ROTY, SOTY) in their respective year. For upcoming event, I can see only The Weeknd, Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, The Chicks and probably Chloe & Halle, Roddy Ricch have potential to snatch all three nominations.
For the record, The Weeknd missed SOTY nomination in 2016 with bigger era than After Hours so there’s probability he will get same fate. Miss Taylor never failed to get extra nomination in general field if her album made it as AOTY nominee ;
- Fearless; You Belong With Me (ROTY, SOTY)
- Red; WANEGBT (ROTY)
- 1989; Shake It Off, Blank Space (ROTY, SOTY)
If Blinding Lights, Don’t Start Now, and Circles misses SOTY, then SOTY should likely go to cardigan or empowering songs such as I Can’t Breathe, etc.August 15, 2020 at 6:19 pm #1203647790
By Monday, Blinding Lights will already replace Goo Goo Dolls’ Iris as #1 Song in Radio Airplay in Billboard with Blinding Lights spending 19 weeks at the top.July 30, 2020 at 6:37 pm #1203617047
I’m interested to see the speeches given at the Grammys. First off, no one can not have a reason to not show up this year since it will probably won’t be at the staples center and with a live feed. But yeah I’m interested to see the awards they are going to give out. Here’s who I think it is.
BNA: Megan thee Stallion (Doja Cat second)
Pop Vocal: Taylor Swift
Prog. R&B Album: The Weeknd
Rap Album: Roddy Ricch
Country Album: The Chicks
Alternative Album: Fiona Apple
I agree on it except for SOTY which I think it may go to somebody else.July 30, 2020 at 12:08 am #1203614453
If Fiona Apple does not get nominated in AOTY, then it’s The Weeknd vs Taylor Swift for AOTY.July 29, 2020 at 10:50 pm #1203614280
The best case scenario for both The Weeknd and Taylor Swift to win in the General Field:
1st scenario: Taylor Swift wins AOTY like Arcade Fire and Beck did in the last decade while The Weeknd wins ROTY and SOTY for Blinding Lights.
2nd scenario: The Weeknd wins AOTY where Taylor and Fiona Apple(if nominated) will split votes. He also take ROTY for Blinding Lights, but SOTY will go to somebody else like Taylor.
3rd scenario: Worst of all, The Weeknd pulling a sweep which is truly unlikely.July 26, 2020 at 11:07 pm #1203604947
folklore will end up with high 80s or low 90s Metascore when all is said and done, very impressive for a mainstream artist tho. Now, we are looking for its commercial success, if it serves longevity then, all boxes are checked for AOTY contender. Main problem here is blue-ribbon committees
Now, we are waiting for reviews from Anthony Fantano, Spin, and the rest of the music critic reviews.July 26, 2020 at 10:08 pm #1203604897
Pitchfork gave folklore album a 8/10. Still good score though. Please check the folklore album review from Pitchfork.July 26, 2020 at 9:07 pm #1203604859
Right now, I’m thinking Fiona wins four Grammys: AOTY, Alternative Album, Rock Song, and Rock Performance, with the album also picking up Best Engineered Recording. Abel also wins four: ROTY, SOTY, Pop Solo, and Progressive R&B album.
I don’t think Fiona Apple is winning AOTY due to lack of campaigning. The Weeknd is only getting ROTY, Pop Solo, and Best Progressive R&B Album.July 26, 2020 at 5:17 am #1203603410
Get real! Folklore is NOT winning Album of the Year. It will NOT be submitted to Best Alternative Music Album or Best Folk Album. #Delusional
Wrong! folklore has been receiving rave reviews so far. It will get AOTY if Fiona Apple gets completely snub in AOTY due to lack of doing music promotions.July 26, 2020 at 4:56 am #1203603391
I’m predicting Taylor to get AOTY & Best Pop Vocal Album or Best Folk Album. That’s about it. I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a NFR & Melodrama scenario where it only gets an AOTY Nomination.
I would love to see folklore win AOTY, Best Folk Album, and Best Engineering Album(Non-Classical).
