If I Can’t Have You is too generic to get in the GF. In My Blood was a decent song at least.May 21, 2019 at 9:35 am #1202903117
Also Tyler The Creator is a lock for AoTY at this point.
I see him as even more likely than Ariana and Billie considering that the committee has been favoring rappers in recent years while snubbing pop stars more often.May 21, 2019 at 9:17 am #1202903087
Honey, If “Shallow” could NOT win ROTY and SOTY in a shitty year, then A Star Is Born won’t win AOTY. Lady Gaga isn’t adored by voters. The delusion stops today!
Um which year is shittier though? A year where we have Childish Gambino, Kendrick, Kacey Musgraves, Janelle, Drake, Cardi B in contention, or a year where we have x1 winner Ariana and x0 winner Billie as the main contenders?
So your argument actually works against you. Just admit it, if nominated Gaga will find it much easier to win this year than last year, unless there’s a surprise nominee that will beat her.May 20, 2019 at 9:41 pm #1202902525
I think Black Panther’s issue last year was that urban voters were not fully behind it. They probably thought it wasn’t impactful enough to get their vote. While Gambino managed to monopolize the urban vote and even get some of the pop vote with TIA, Kendrick fell short of that and likely split vote with Drake and Cardi B (who both won awards as well).
Yes Black Panther was more accessible, but it still needs to monopolize the urban vote. So I think if his next album is as good as his other albums, he can probably achieve that.
As for Gaga, IF nominated, I don’t see who can stop her. Last year she won every single category and lost only to a more impactful and successful song (at the time, since Shallow became #1 eventually) by someone who’s respected by the Academy and also an Emmy winner (so he probably has as much crossover/GP appeal as she does).
As of today, I don’t see such a person in the lineup. But obviously that can change once we know the nominees.May 20, 2019 at 9:27 pm #1202902516
Walk Me Home ain’t happening in Pop Solo. That category is pretty competitive this year. They have Halsey’s major hit, they have Gaga, Shawn Mendes and even Beck lolMay 20, 2019 at 9:22 pm #1202902511

I won’t count out Gaga in Best Pop Duo/GP but I need to see if she submits anything there first.May 20, 2019 at 4:15 pm #1202902194
If only Arcade somehow blew up in the U.S, it would easily win RoTY and SoTY. It sounds like a typical winner. But a Eurovision winner hasn’t won RoTY & SoTY in like 4 decades.May 20, 2019 at 3:19 pm #1202902117
I never thought Kendrick was gonna win, even said it multiple times. Though, to be fair, I had Brandi Carlile winning (which would fit into the mold of the Grammy giving the trophy to uninteresting white people instead of quality). I’m glad Kacey won though.
It’s possible than Brandi Carlile was #2. She’s definitely grammy-bait. I wouldn’t be surprised if Shallow lost because The Joke took too many votes away from it. But at the very least, you surely think that Black Panther was #3 with a soundtrack and that Kendrick was #2 in 2018? If he got that close to winning, he’ll win eventually.May 20, 2019 at 3:02 pm #1202902068
Well Billie hasn’t really had a chance to be nominated, but considering there have been multiple BNA contenders winning Record or Album of the Year, it’s really not a stretch.
And Kendrick has lost before, multiple times. They clearly don’t like hip-hop unless it Childish Gambino. Y’all said the same last year, and the year before that, and he still lost to two artist who have less Grammy’s and AOTY nominations than him.
If you ask me, he’s the GOAT rapper of the 21st century, but I doubt he’ll ever win. Same case with someone like Beyoncé.
Kendrick lost to someone who had 50/50 chance of winning split with him. Last year, we kinda all agreed that it was mainly between him and Kacey (they were the top 2 according to the odds and the critics predictions).
I mean I’m a Gaga fan, but didn’t she lose to someone who had pretty much 50/50 chance of winning with her two? (TIA was #2) Saying that Kendrick won’t ever win because he lost to Kacey would be the equivalent of saying Gaga will never win in the GF, which is kinda wrong, because both will win eventually. When someone is talented, it simply never goes away.
For Beyoncé, Pop voters ABSOLUTELY love her. Remember when she won with Halo, and she was nominated AGAIN for Halo the following year with a live version. Arguably she was almost as loved by pop voters as Adele back then. All she needs to do win AoTY is come up with an album that’s a hybrid of Lemonade and I am Sasha Fierce. She would get both the vote of pop voters and urban voters and she’ll win by a landslide.
Beyoncé will also win eventually.May 20, 2019 at 2:40 pm #1202901999
Also I do agree. I can even see Gaga losing to Kendrick if he’s got something as good as This Is America. Last year proved that.
Though obviously, Kendrick would be much more likely to beat Billie than Gaga considering that she’s also a x3 AoTY nominee and x9 winner.May 20, 2019 at 2:37 pm #1202901989
I love Kendrick, but if he couldn’t beat Kacey Musgraves there’s no chance in hell he would beat someone as Grammy-friendly as Billie Eilish or Lady Gaga.
Please explain this to me, how is x15 grammy winner and x4 AoTY nominee is somehow less likely to win than x0 nominee and x0 winner Billie Eillish.
We don’t even know how the Grammy’s are going to react to her. The assumption is that they’ll like her music but that’s only an assumption.May 20, 2019 at 5:50 am #1202900992
Australia was awful.
I think my second pick would’ve been France (really disappointed he didn’t make the TOP5). My third pick would be switzerland.
But Netherlands should’ve won by a landslide. It was the best by far. But it got too close.May 20, 2019 at 5:36 am #1202900983
Get real! If nominated, A Star Is Born is NOT the frontrunner to win Album of the Year. Stop the fangirl delusion.
Shall we add this to your long list of awfully wrong predictions about Gaga: that she wasn’t going to get a grammy for ASIB, that she wasn’t going to get an Oscar for Shallow, that “Shallow” in the GF wasn’t happening, that the song and the soundtrack would plummet in the charts after two weeks etc etc…
When do you give up… Everytime you predict something about her the opposite happens. So I’m kinda happy you’re saying this, because the opposite will probably be likely to happen again
