I don’t think the urban voters will make much of a difference.November 26, 2019 at 1:22 pm #1203204675
The Billie interview is everywhere. A campaigner’s dream.November 25, 2019 at 1:24 pm #1203202920
Well, we already knew that Billie was ahead of Lizzo in most categories. That’s why Urban Contemporary and (maybe) SOTY are Lizzo’s most competitive categories. But if the Billie hype translates into a full sweep then it’s over for Lizzo (and Ariana by default).November 24, 2019 at 10:32 am #1203200354
Khalid and Halsey were both done dirty. At least the BRP included Talk in ROTY, meanwhile Without Me was completely snubbed. And yes I’m still mad about itNovember 23, 2019 at 7:10 pm #1203199377
Honey, “Cuz I Love You” should’ve been nominated in Best Traditional R&B Performance instead of “Jerome.”
Right? That submission seems really weird to me. I wonder why her team chose Jerome.November 23, 2019 at 5:27 pm #1203199243
The only way Lizzo’s winning traditional R&B is if she does a stellar Jerome performance at SNL (which wouldn’t surprise me). But even then I’d be hesitant to predict her.
She’s up against an industry veteran with a #1 song at Urban AC (India.Arie – it’s her first radio #1) and someone who surprisingly won let year, who now has the assistance of an industry favorite who doesn’t have a Grammy yet (PJ Morton and Jazmine Sullivan). There are some interesting narratives in that category and I wouldn’t underestimate them.November 23, 2019 at 11:37 am #1203198835
I want Sunflower to win duo/group so bad. I can’t believe it was snubbed in song written for visual media 🙁November 23, 2019 at 10:32 am #1203198689
Could Lizzo pull a AOTY win ? They obviously have a hard on her . R&B committee obviously loves her and she could possibly get some hip hop votes. Would the pop voters go for her ?
Just because the R&B committee included her, doesn’t mean they love her or that she’ll even win those song categories. Yes she is having a monumental year, but she still has to overcome the uphill battle of being a newbie, being considered pop, and all the other biases of the academy.
Again, people predicting a sweep or a possible AOTY win are getting way ahead of themselves.November 22, 2019 at 1:44 pm #1203197604
A million and one people worked on the Dreamville album… not everyone made the cut, but it seemed like a nourishing experience for all of the artists involved. Hence why I predicted it for a nomination. They simply had a lot of voters attached to the project.
Now, idk if they’ll all vote for themselves as a winner… but I wouldn’t be surprised if managed to win.November 22, 2019 at 10:03 am #1203197263
Watch Lizzo only win 2 nominations.
She will. In the past few years, artists who get a bunch of nominations never sweep. Half of them literally went home empty-handed. Lizzo is in a better chance to win somewhere, but a sweep? It’s not happening.
If anything , Lil Nas X is the person who could go home with nothing.November 21, 2019 at 9:55 pm #1203196480
It’s strange seeing social media turn on Lizzo in a complete 180 this past week lol.
It’s been building for a few months now, but flipped completely after Ari Lennox’s rant. Really unfortunate imo, but Lizzo is an easy target and people love a pile-on.November 21, 2019 at 8:50 pm #1203196346
Imagining a scenario where all the country voters go for Tanya Tucker in SOTY since they have no album to root for. Realistic? Idk.
In addition to that, I’m imagining a scenario where Lizzo and Billie only get one win each (Urban Contemporary and BNA, respectfully). That would be wild. But I’m always wary of newcomers sweeping and/or people who get a bunch of nominations.
