She already has done the Avril Lavigne Pop-Rock thing imo (and did it better).November 28, 2020 at 10:06 pm #1203881524
I wonder what’s the path forward for the Grammy’s to recover and regain their prestige like the Oscars. Drake said he imagines something new and maybe rightfully so. Sometimes if something can’t get fixed, maybe better to just tear down and rebuild?
Personally I think they should replace all the inactive voting members and open up their process to music critics. I said this last year, but they really should force their voters to at least listen to a snippet of the song that they want to vote for, even a 30 second snippet. I’m pretty sure if voters actually listened to Yummy they wouldn’t have voted for it. Even callouts research, people who vote actually listen to the song. And the Grammy’s they don’t have that requirement lol. The fact that there is an online process now can make that easier. Make all voting take place online and force voters to listen to the shit they’re voting on.
Also establish a committee in Pop. There’s no point in ignoring the issue anymore.
Agreed, every genre especially Pop, should have a committee.
Also, there should be some sort of requirement in regards to voting. I don’t know how they can force someone to listen to more than a snippet, but there should be a way to force voters to vote especially when it can be done online. It makes no sense that say 500 total voters vote in Round 1, and then thousands vote in Round 2. That doesn’t seem fair to allow anyone to vote in the final round who didn’t care enough to vote in the first round.November 28, 2020 at 10:02 pm #1203881520
Grammy need to be more transparent after this year fiasco. They should reveal the shortlist aka Top 20 just like Oscar.
The Oscars don’t reveal the shortlist for every category. Not to dismiss the categories they revealed last year, but none of them were Best Picture, Director, Screenplay, Actress/Actor (Lead and Supporting) so does the GP really care about the shortlist for Best Visual Effects…my guess is no.November 27, 2020 at 4:05 pm #1203878290
. No actually I heard the mac Miller ones cuz I happen to be a fan of his (this album not so much) and same for Jacob. Heard the other one for the first time when I was doing a freelance job and had to edit a piece about the Grammy noms though and listened to all the big categories though so yeah that I heard for the first time the other day. As for Howard, she is an incredible but not feeling the album and Aiko just falls flat for me tbh. In general I listen to a lot of music all day as I work and just got sirius satellite for for the first time and that in the car on the way home. But I buy and download a lot of albums so I can absolutely assure u that I had listened to I’d say 80 percent of these prior to Grammy nom day
And why would it even matter when you listened to those songs/albums anyway? Your (and anyone’s) fav and least fav shouldn’t have anything to do with when they were listened to. Some posters here smh.November 27, 2020 at 2:18 pm #1203878100
I have my doubts about the other three. I thin Fine Line is the dark horse pick but unless he was intentionally stopped at the general field then he has virtually no chance.
Whatever reaches the BRP and does not get nominated is intentionally stopped, so I wouldn’t say he has virtually no chance.November 27, 2020 at 1:54 pm #1203878033
Other than Kelly Clarkson (2x, 2006 and 2013) you have to go back to 2000 when an artist not nominated in AOTY, took Pop Album over an AOTY nominee (Sting won, BSB nominated in both PVA/AOTY).
Can we see Harry, Gaga or Bieber take it over Dua/Taylor… hard to say. I’m pulling for folklore over Future Nostalgia, but if it’s going to be one of the other three I hope Fine Line takes it.November 25, 2020 at 10:20 pm #1203874091
Say whatever you want but no one can convince me that Bieber get nominated solely due to his music. Money, corruption, fraudulent are involved in this suspicious nomination. We demand a proper investigation, I’m calling the FBI
That is a fantastic attitude to have.November 25, 2020 at 2:30 pm #1203873220
Jhene Aiko shouldn’t be random, the woman has a soon to be Platinum album nominated. She also has more than R&B support. Look at who she’s worked with.
I don’t get the GP comments. The GP doesn’t get a say on these awards. The industry would be well enough aware of both Jacob Collier and Black Pumas.November 25, 2020 at 2:27 pm #1203873218
Folklore will go top 5 this week and it could potentially be top 3. It’s rising everywhere so let’s hope this keeps up for the rest of the week.
It won’t go top 3 unless there is a boatload of pure album sales not counted in the latest prediction. Top 5 is the safe bet.
