It’ll be really interesting to see who the Grammy audience will stand behind in the BNA race. It’s really hard to call cause both their music is respected but not the safe type of Grammy bait. It’s a really hard one to predict tbh.September 2, 2019 at 1:31 pm #1203053826
She’s gonna release the most succesful pop album of the year even if she declines with 50%. I suppose it’s a possibility her era will be shortlived and her momentum will have died down by time of voting. But tbh Ed’s snub was due to them needing a black winner and Taylor’s snub was due to her making decisions Adele would never make. So it’s kinda unlikely for an Adele boycot to happen. Especially since the span between her releases is so long that the panel won’t care about her sweeping again.September 2, 2019 at 1:21 pm #1203053794
I honestly feel like NFR has an outside chance of winning aswell. Without Billie, I think she would take it. Now I’m not sure.
I def think pop is too strong this year for namecheck fillers like Kelly Clarkson or P!nk to show up.September 2, 2019 at 11:43 am #1203053601
If Adele is releasing, the discussion can be closed.September 2, 2019 at 10:27 am #1203053453
Last year her submissions were also shitty with the God Is A Woman push. I still think No Tears would have won pop solo in that line-up.September 1, 2019 at 12:40 pm #1203052220
Has the time been changed? I thought that September 30th was the final day of each eligibility period. God bless you always!!! Holly
Yeah, cut-off date is a month earlier from now on. So this year the eligibility period is only 11 months.
God bless you too.

I think NFR will get into pop album if submitted there. Next to Billie, Taylor and Ariana. With the fifth slot going to JoBros or Ed. Doin’ Time would also make for a great music video submission. Tbh Lana her videography is slowly becoming one of the bests from the modern popgirls. She has so many cute videos by now.August 31, 2019 at 8:20 am #1203050445
Dua Lipa is the biggest new female pop star the industry has had in years. There are definitely more than 8 candidates they can choose from instead of Lil Nas – they frequently look beyond the Billboard charts for their nominees. They like to nominate artists who have a possibility of having a great long-term career, and Lil Nas is clearly not a career artist.
Dua made for a very uneventful winner. I like her music but it’s true lbr. She’s a cute girl with some catchy tunes. Lil Nas has achieved enough this year to be deserving of the nomination. They can still nominate five leftfield people next to Billie, Lizzo and Lil Nas. It’d be a good mix.August 31, 2019 at 8:04 am #1203050405
Honey, I am still NOT 100% convinced that Lil Nas X will get into Best New Artist. Hope he does get in. I can see a scenario where he gets three nominations (ROTY, SOTY, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance), but left out of BNA a la Lukas Graham.
The category was won by Dua fucking Lipa last year. The bar isn’t that high anymore, especially with 8 slots to fill.August 31, 2019 at 7:06 am #1203050282
Homecoming would not be a topic in the AOTY race if Billboard didn’t keep predicting it. What’s the point in nominating Beyoncé just to see her lose again.August 31, 2019 at 5:30 am #1203050020
I think Lil Nas X is getting into ROTY, SOTY and BNA for sure aswell. Music video is possible too. Not sure which genre category OTR is most likely to go into?
He actually became somewhat of a star people can recognize unlike most people with viral songs in the past. And he’s likeable and the media seems to be on his side aswell with multiple magazine covers already.August 28, 2019 at 1:07 pm #1203044936
No way! Adults don’t care for Billie and most of parents wouldn’t even let their child listen to “Bury A Friend”. Imagine showing “Bury A Friend” or “You Should See Me In A Crown” music videos to your mother or grandparents. Grammy voters are usually older white dudes which would prefer Ariana and Taylor over Billie. Lorde has a similar sound but her music wasn’t that “edgy” and “depressing”. Billie is so so overrated on this forums!
Even if they’re white and old, voters are mostly creative people and artists, not soccer moms. Sure there’s a conservative part aswell but you don’t need to convince everybody to vote for you.
