Not sure why I was so blind. I have a feeling Taylor will do Calm Down and have all the girls nominated for Pop Solo come out during her “comparing all the girls who are killing it” Unless of course she performs Lover like I had originally thought.
Yeah because Beyoncé has nothing better to do than serving as a prop in a Taylor Swift performance.November 20, 2019 at 9:17 am #1203192282
Are you guys ready for “Roxanne” in Record of the Year and Arizona Zervas in Best New Artist?November 20, 2019 at 9:09 am #1203192243
The GF nominations would’ve been great if they first cleaned up BNA.
Like who the fuck are these?
And take out H.E.R and Lil Nas from AoTY.
I think SoTY was really well done. RoTY is okay too.November 20, 2019 at 8:50 am #1203192154
Last year we had a two-way race in every major category.
This year we literally have an eight-way race, any of the nominees can win lolNovember 20, 2019 at 8:45 am #1203192138
Lewis Capaldi went #1 after the voting closed.
I wouldn’t rule him out completely in SoTY. He blew up right in time for the BRP meetings which got him SoTY, but was a bit late for the pop categories since the voting took place in September.
If the song continues to be #1. I can see him winning.November 20, 2019 at 8:40 am #1203192126
Miss Swift is very smart. She knew she was gonna get nominated for Lover.
Why do you think she released that Shawn Mendes remix now? So that the song gains traction a couple of weeks before 2nd round voting begins.November 20, 2019 at 8:37 am #1203192115
What’s interesting though, even at her peak, the committee isn’t taking Ariana seriously as a songwriter. I’m really surprised TUN missed.
I mean the leak gave it away, but still.. I thought it was her strongest category.November 20, 2019 at 8:36 am #1203192106
I bet the cursing in the title is the reason why Lana missed in Pop.
Old white Grandpa grammy be like “oh lord no! not this! I’d rather vote for Beyoncé than this”November 20, 2019 at 8:26 am #1203192085
Y’all were just saying the other day how sad it would be for Gaga to miss AOTY so now that she missed, the snub was obvious? They obviously weren’t bothered by Bradley Cooper when they gave them Pop Duo last year so that’s not a good excuse. Y’all cannot backtrack now.
A snub for AOTY would’ve been sad if Gaga got in Pop Solo. It would’ve shown that the pop voters are still excited about the soundtrack, but the BRP blocked it, against the will of the voters.
But looking at the nominations today it isn’t the case. Pop voters have moved on. It’s a fact. I mean Spirit made it over ARUTW. Timing and recency matters.
And BRP didn’t shut out Gaga. They nominated her in a category that I think Gaga is stronger in, given the situation. Her best case scenario, if this nomination along with two well-liked country writers on the ballot, can rally the country vote behind Gaga and deliver a win for her. Had she been with Bradley Cooper on the ballot instead, I think it would’ve reduced her chances, since it doesn’t seem he’s taken seriously by the voters. Maybe It’s Time despite being bigger than many of the AR nominees, didn’t make it in any category.November 20, 2019 at 8:17 am #1203192046
It’s poetic justice seeing Gaga fans enraged over an AOTY “snub” for a soundtrack that was never a lock in the first place no matter how many times they posted the sales for it. Then for the rest of the white pop stans seethe over Lizzo, Lil Nas, Beyoncé and maybe even Ariana get more nominations is most pleasing to me.
Girl you’re so wrong.
Having looked at the nominations, as someone who thought ASIB was going to be nominated, I’m glad it isn’t.
First of all, I’m not sure it still has pop support since it didn’t get nominations there. And secondly, Bradley Cooper clearly is a turn off for voters. He didn’t get any nominations in his categories.
I wholeheartedly agree with the committee’s decision to nominate ARUTW instead in SoTY. It’s actually a much better place for Gaga to compete in, without the burden of having Bradley Cooper on the ballot. And having Hillary Lindsey on the ballot instead of Cooper is much better.
Gaga is better off getting in AoTY with her next album. I really don’t think she would’ve won this year. As it turns out, a soundtrack, and with an actor as co-star, is a bit too much for the voters to rally behind. The fact this has gotten Gaga 8 nominations over 2 years is already very impressive.November 20, 2019 at 7:43 am #1203191853

Norman Fucking Rockwell! 8. 7 Record of the Year 1. Sunflower 2. Hey Ma 3. 7 Rings 4. Hard Place 5. Truth Hurts 6. Bad Guy 7. Old Town Road (Remix) 8. Talk Song of the Year 1.

I agree with Father of the Bride. I think it’ll win.
RoTY. Not sure.. Sunflower underperformed in VM
SoTY, the only way Gaga wins if she really gets all the country vote thanks to Natalie and Hillary (who is also nominated in Country Song this year). But Pop vote isn’t really behind her with ARUTW.November 20, 2019 at 7:40 am #1203191834
What if Lizzo sweeps the GF…
