Pop Solo Performance already has too many strong contenders (“Circles,” “Blinding Lights,” “Don’t Start Now,” “Adore You,” “Say So,” “Everything I Wanted,” “Good as Hell” and “Dance Monkey” if they’re eligible, etc.) for “First Man” to be a factor. Moving on.April 3, 2020 at 9:56 am #1203408184
“Slide” and “Life Is Good” aren’t happening. “Don’t Start Now” is not a lock.
Also, I think “Adore You” is more of a Record contender than Song, not the other way around.April 2, 2020 at 3:54 pm #1203407136
They’re nominated in Pop Duo/Group pretty much every year. That’s what I mean dude.
They’re really not. They were passed over for nominations in 2014 (“Daylight”), 2015 (“Maps”), and 2018 (“Don’t Wanna Know”) – all of those songs were huge hits.
They’re one of the few bands that has shown staying power, they frequently churn out big hits, and they’re former BNA winners, so obviously they’re going to be on the Grammy radar a lot, but they’re hardly darlings. What’s more, three of their last four albums were passed over for Pop Album nominations.March 30, 2020 at 6:58 am #1203400852
but I think 2x winner Dua Lipa is probably making music more up the Grammy’s taste than Post Malone.
One of the categories Dua won is a category Post would most likely have beat her in had he been eligible.
The other was for a collaboration with Diplo and Mark Ronson in a non-competitive category.
Don’t forget that “Better Now” also edged “New Rules” out for a nomination in Pop Solo Performance.March 29, 2020 at 1:31 pm #1203399685
Post is a lock for AOTY and ROTY, and at this rate is most likely in for SOTY too.March 19, 2020 at 1:36 pm #1203387345
Roxanne is probably not happening after all. Alphabetical order will hurt him.
that’s not the only thing that will hurt him
“Circles” and “Blinding Lights” are 100% in Pop Solo; “Don’t Start Now,” “Everything I Wanted,” and (if eligible) “Good as Hell” are probably the next in line at this point. “Adore You,” “Lose You to Love Me,” “Dance Monkey,” (if eligible) “I Love Me” (or another Demi song) and “Stupid Love” are possible.March 16, 2020 at 12:52 pm #1203383354
Roddy will probably hang on for one more week before The Weeknd takes over. Don’t see Dua hitting #1. She’s not gaining significantly in any metric.March 16, 2020 at 12:24 pm #1203383270
Are we really ruling out Roxanne?
I feel at the very least it’ll get a ROTY nomination. The song has just been a massive hit.
Yes, I am. It’s not going to happen. I don’t know if you like the song or whatever but it’s a massive long shot. Arizona Zervas is the Bazzi of this year.
It’s a popular song but it’s not THAT big. It’s lightweight and forgettable.March 16, 2020 at 11:32 am #1203383123
Alicia Keys’s “Underdog” is a song to watch for in the GF, particularly SOTY. It’s not a big hit, but we saw this past year that the committee went out of their way to reward evocative storytelling in that category instead of just hits. Plus, she performed the song at this year’s Grammys, so many voters should be familiar with it, and she could have goodwill from hosting the last two shows.
