You guys happen to be aware that neither Billboard, Hits Daily Double or Rolling Stone have A Star Is Born in Album of the Year, right?October 25, 2019 at 2:07 pm #1203152764
If Taylor Swift is struggling for hits, then you have to be insane to believe that Lady Gaga is about have any commercial success.October 21, 2019 at 5:13 pm #1203146688
Lana’s album just sold over 100,000 pure copies so far. That’s phenomenal for an artist like her. People are really embracing Norman F Rockwell.
She is a major label artist, so 100,000 is not anything impressive.October 21, 2019 at 5:07 pm #1203146678
Billie isn’t winning both Pop Perf and Pop Album. She’s more likely to take the award for ‘bad guy’ (ugh). Lizzo isn’t winning Pop Perf.
See no reason why Ariana wouldn’t take the Album.
Billie Eilish is not winning for WHISPERING on a song, so stop with the stan bullshit; it is nowhere near being the biggest hit either, which is what they usually give the award to in pop, so it has to be stan bullshit that has people saying that is the frontrunner.October 19, 2019 at 5:26 pm #1203144192
Lana Del Rey’s album is not even charting in the top 100 and has only been out for a month, so what is the impact that she has?October 10, 2019 at 6:37 pm #1203131403
I only see him ROTY and BNA ( maybe ) that’s really it…..no other category
You are terrible at it then because Best New Artist, Pop Group, Record of the Year, Song of the Year are guarantees, and there is a possibility that it pops up in video.September 29, 2019 at 10:11 am #1203111962
How is Billie Eilish supposed to win a PERFORMANCE VOCALS category when the general public is currently bringing up how she is not able to sing?September 28, 2019 at 4:32 am #1203109838
If we’re doing numbers, 7 rings and Bad Guy are the bigger hits.
7 Rings is for now, but Bad Guy sure as hell is not. For starters, Truth Hurts has already spent five weeks at number one without any signs of slowing down. Bad Guy has spent one week at number one. Truth Hurts is much bigger than Bad Guy already. Truth Hurts has a possibility to not win, but it is not going to be to Bad Guy.September 26, 2019 at 6:54 pm #1203106805
I don’t think Lizzo has a real shot at winning. Can anyone name a single recent pop winner that remotely sounds like “Truth Hurts”? That’s right, none.
Lewis Capaldi will probably win this easily. If not him, then probably Billie. That’s assuming Gaga isn’t nominated because I’m not even sure if she has an entry.
You Stans are not even able to help yourselves. If Truth Hurts is too strange to win, then there is no way that a song with someone whispering over a beat is about to win anything. Truth Hurts is the biggest song, so that right there is enough for winning. She also uses various intonations throughout, so it totally makes sense as a performance winner.September 19, 2019 at 4:54 am #1203086208
Underestimate Lewis Capaldi at your own risk.
Once his song hits the TOP5, it’ll hit all the boxes for a typical SoTY/RoTY winner.
You have songs that are phenomenons that have spent nineteen weeks, ten weeks etcetera at number one, but you believe that a song that has not even reached number one is about to win those awards? The Grammys are not even that obtuse.September 19, 2019 at 4:51 am #1203086203
I can see Lewis Capaldi going the Ed Sheeran route when he first came out… score either a single SOTY nom or an additional one in New Artist, but lose both. Then if he proves to have another hit/album in him, they’ll give him a Grammy. But not till then.
I definitely think Tyler would get in AOTY over the likes of Meek Mill or 21 Savage (who have no chance). I just have a feeling that Tyler’s album was still not big enough to score a nom in the General Field. No hip-hop album is this year.
If you look back at the last 10 years, all of the Rap albums that have been nominated in AOTY were by mainstream artists and had huge sales. Had IGOR even broken 300,000 copies? …then again voters might just consider the album “urban contemporary” and nominate it as a critically backed album just like they did Dirty Computer last year. IGOR definitely can’t compare in popularity to Drake, Cardi B and The Black Panther in terms of hip-hop albums that scored AOTY noms last year. We’ll see I guess.
Uh, six of the albums in the top ten highest selling albums of the year are hip-hop albums, so to say that there is not a big enough hip-hop album while suggesting that people who have very little commercial success such as Lana Del Rey are going to receive nominations is perplexing.September 16, 2019 at 5:33 pm #1203081058
Billie Eilish is a one hit wonder, a hit that is nowhere near as big as Royals; she is not winning Album of the Year, Record of the Year or Song of the Year up against Old Town Road or Truth Hurts.
