Y’all are freaking out over a typo. Why would ABC news know the Grammy winners?January 17, 2020 at 5:52 pm #1203289977
I don’t like Halsey. I think she tries to hard to be edgy and often just falls miserably flat.
However, Manic is probably one of the best pop releases I’ve heard in the past 12 months. This whole albums feels so unique and focused.
I really love the songs where she’s paired with more acoustic elements like Graveyard, 3am, Forever, and specially Finally//beautiful stranger, which is the best song she’s ever released IMO.
I also think all songs work perfectly into telling her story. The rock songs are also some of the best (Alanis Interlude, 3am, killing boys) and the softer songs sound gorgeous (Suga’s Interlude, More). Even Without Me sounds pretty great in the context of the album.
There are a couple songs that fall flat (clementine and Still Learning) and also a couple that could be better (I HATE EVERYBODY and You should be sad) but overall even those songs are still decent or good and paint the story well enough.
You should be sad 7/10
Forever (is a long time) 9/10
Dominic’s Interlude 9/10
I HATE EVERYBODY 7/10
Without Me 7/10
Finally//beautiful stranger 10/10
Alanis’ Interlude 8/10
killing boys 9/10
SUGA’s Interlude 8/10
Still Learning 5/10
Overall 8.5/10January 17, 2020 at 10:57 am #1203289418
I think they might’ve been getting checks to nominate people and Deborah was trying to solve it.January 17, 2020 at 2:44 am #1203288796
Eminem always does shit like this, and the worst part is that he has an audience to back it up. Absolute trash.January 16, 2020 at 7:37 pm #1203288567
I wouldn’t be shocked if this is a MeToo story, but I guess it’s probably more related to fraud or abuse of power. Wonder if they’ll ever say what happened.January 16, 2020 at 4:50 pm #1203288400
Billie will probably just do EGO. I can’t see her doing Broadway.January 16, 2020 at 3:02 pm #1203288258
Adele might have a hard time getting into AOTY. I don’t think they want to give her another AOTY win so fast unless she steps it up this time. A new album by a 2x AOTY winner in the past years sounds like something the committee would block.January 16, 2020 at 2:58 pm #1203288248
When I say “urban-leaning” I mean rap/trap-ish or by rap artists. Pop voters are a bit more traditional than we think.
Fancy and Dark Horse lost to a piano ballad. God is a woman and Better Now lost to a piano ballad. See You Again lost to a throwback retro funk pop song, Work and Despacito both lost to alternative pop songs.
All of the Pop Duo winners have been songs with prominent use of “real instruments”, no exception. Pop-rock is also favoured a lot of the times.
In Pop Solo, all but one winner (Royals) are songs with heavy use of real instruments (You could argue that Shape of You doesn’t, but the percussion and the guitar are all Ed, and Sheeran is known as a singer-songwriter).
There’s a clear bias that allows more traditional songs to win over.January 16, 2020 at 11:37 am #1203287925
I don’t feel confident in OTR winning Pop Duo Group. There’s definitely some bias there that stops urban-leaning songs to win. That said, he did get an AOTY nom so maybe I’m overthinking.
I think Sucker would be the one that upsets it since it fits the mold of past winners. Ariana could get a consolation prize but I don’t think most people know Boyfriend.January 16, 2020 at 2:42 am #1203287336

Jerome is definitely the front-runner for Traditional R&B.January 15, 2020 at 10:37 am #1203286218
Please, anyone with at least half a brain does not think Camila is a racist. She said stupid comments when she was 15. No one cares.
I’ve seen worse shit from certain members on here.
She didn’t “say some stupid comments”. She used the n-word multiple times, and mocked black culture while also mocking black stereotypes. That is not normal behaviour for a 15 year-old girl.January 15, 2020 at 2:43 am #1203285456
Rosalía has been confirmed as a performer.January 15, 2020 at 2:38 am #1203285454

Biggie was a legend, and it’s pretty clear that the Rock & Rolñ Hall of Fame isn’t only for rock artists anymore. It’s for people who redifined music in general, which the Notorious B.I.G did more than the majority of the other nominees.
