Speaking of H.E.R., I think “Slow Down” with Skip Marley could be a strong contender to win R&B Performance this year.June 30, 2020 at 2:58 pm #1203559333
Purple Rain is definitely on par with Thriller.June 30, 2020 at 2:57 pm #1203559331
She won everything she was eligible for.
She couldnt win Best POP Performance by a Duo or Group because shes not a Group. Are you going to clock her for not winning Best Male Pop Vocal as well?
She lost Pop Collaboration, which she was eligible and nominated for. That’s the point.June 30, 2020 at 2:51 pm #1203559302
And even then, Doo Woop was a very distant runner up. I wish we could see the votes tally because 21 must have been one of the biggest landslide wins in history, literally unstoppable
And no one even criticized that sweep or claimed Gaga deserved it, except Gaga fans as you said
Yahoo had Grammy polls for who will win each category, and Adele basically had landslide wins in every category, like 60-85% votes. I imagine that being the case for the actual voting results. It almost doesn’t matter who came in second because everyone was scraping for the bottom.June 30, 2020 at 1:33 pm #1203559096
Had Lionel Richie not won AOTY, he would have been the only nominated artist to go home emptyhanded.June 30, 2020 at 12:30 pm #1203558962
Y’all should wait to see how well “Watermelon Sugar” performs before calling Harry Styles a frontrunner.June 30, 2020 at 11:55 am #1203558925
I can see Doja getting into BNA and ROTY, with no genre nominations. I can also seeing the organization only giving her a BNA nomination and nothing else.
I still think they’re going to knock out one of those “retro” songs. “Don’t Start Now” and “Blinding Lights” are safer than “Say So.”June 30, 2020 at 11:28 am #1203558867
I actually read pundit predictions from that year in the archives and I remember Paul Grein’s specifically, and Lionel Richie was predicted to win by several. He was the safe, most AC choice that appealed to country voters and also had a ton of commercial success and goodwill from his time with The Commodores. He might have been the worst pick that year, but I’m pretty sure his win was not surprising in the least.June 30, 2020 at 11:25 am #1203558858
We’ve seen Jennifer Hudson sing every Aretha Franklin song in the book. I’ll pass.June 29, 2020 at 7:53 pm #1203558227
I’m sure there is no consensus that The Weeknd is “overdue.” He’s definitely not.June 29, 2020 at 5:16 pm #1203558054
I’m glad that its in Brooklyn this year. Barclays Center is big enough where they can still have a socially distanced show (and maybe I can attend. I haven’t attended a VMAs since 2016).
The virtual shit is boring. I want to see LIVE reactions.
I’m glad you care more about those useless live reactions than the safety of those artists. And the VMAs, live reactions and all, have been boring for quite some time. I can do without that award show.June 29, 2020 at 4:56 pm #1203558030
Stop listening to that clown who had you guys believing that Billie Eilish was about to win a vocal performance Grammy for whispering on a trap beat. It really is foolishness.
Again, who the hell are you REALLY talking about? Everyone knows I predicted Lizzie to take Pop Solo Performance, and it has been well documented. Never once did I predict Billie Eilish. Being loud AND wrong.June 29, 2020 at 3:30 pm #1203557875
No one said Post Malone will win Album of the Year. What are y’all even reading?
