Anyway if Dua Lipa wins anything, they should get Wendy Williams to announce so we can hear the words “and the Grammy goes to… Dula Peep”.December 20, 2020 at 12:34 pm #1203934973

I am more scared of Coldplay and they can attract multi genre votes and a group of people for whatever reasons don’t like a Taylor Swift or Dua Lipa winning AOTY situation.
I think this random Coldplay album was too unsuccesful to attract pop votes and the rock voters probably don’t like them as much anymore either after they made Maroon 5 music for a while like Paradise.December 20, 2020 at 12:00 pm #1203934883
AOTY seems easy for Taylor, any other winner would feel a bit wtf to me (but well we’ve had wtf winners before). But ROTY and SOTY seem like really tight races to me. Honestly even after the noms are out for awhile, I can still almost see anyone coming out on top.December 17, 2020 at 10:35 am #1203927465
With Billie and Selena on the cover, is the reveal to what makes a hit nowadays ‘whispering’?December 1, 2020 at 10:39 am #1203887348
Anyway rumors of a Sour Candy video are rising so at least Gaga wont be completely MIA in Q4 then.December 1, 2020 at 10:38 am #1203887344
Before the nominations Rain on me was the frontrunner but after the nominations the frontrunner is exile
What did it change? Both Taylor and Gaga got the expected nominations, it’s not like Gaga was snubbed in Pop album…
It’s also that the other nominations are more in line with ROM. Exile is the odd one out so it stands out. If Coldplay, A Great Big World, … got in the cards would have been different.November 29, 2020 at 11:13 am #1203882391
If Gaga ever has an Oscar season again, she should launch her era right after it in february (even if she loses, she’d still have buzz). And make it Grammy baity non-dance music. Maybe then. But well her odds are definetly slinking.November 29, 2020 at 4:30 am #1203881848
If The Fame Monster won it would have also given Beyoncé an AOTY win so one stone two birds really lol.November 25, 2020 at 12:26 pm #1203872952
I disagree with this wholeheartedly, and The Weeknd can address the Grammys, create a timeless performance and still address all the important issues in the world. He gets 12-15 minutes. No one said make his entire performance about the Grammys; merely a subtle yet impactful reference to the Grammys snub.
If you do something attention grabbing, THAT becomes your superbowl show. Headlines won’t mention how well you did for the rest and the people will remember that 1 specific moment. Also mentioning something specific to now will make it not timeless by default. It’s like if Gaga dragged Trump right after he got elected, then it’d be set in stone that was 2017.November 25, 2020 at 12:01 pm #1203872880
Taylor’s response was to make a better record with RED and Rep.
Plus how was folklore roll out based on the grammies when she JUST started campaigning umm
She released it right in time for this Grammy period because she knows she doesn’t have the power anymore to keep an album relevant for a year. The being MIA was clearly her strategy this time. Keep the album artificially on the top of the charts with the signed copies and special releases but remain lowkey. With Lover she did all the award shows and it didnt really work for her anymore. And then she has that whole film ready for when the nominations dropped.November 25, 2020 at 11:53 am #1203872857
Has she ever been completely snubbed after being predicted to sweep? I don’t think it’s the same thing.
But The Weeknd posting a couple of tweets about being snubbed is kinda… weak and ineffective.
If there was indeed some corruption behind the scenes regarding the Grammys and Superbowl, it would have been more effective for him to stay quiet until the Superbowl and use his Half-time Show as an opportunity to address the snub. It would have been buzz-worthy and quite iconic. He could still do that, of course. But tweeting his frustrations about the Grammys in an entitled way is lame and predictable to me.
You want a Superbowl performance to be timeless. You don’t want to work your ass off and give the performance of a lifetime and then have all the headlines be ‘the weeknd drags the grammys during superbowl’. Twitter is the right medium for this, the superbowl platform is way to big for this bullshit lol. He could talk about actually important issues in the world there.November 25, 2020 at 11:37 am #1203872772
Taylor didnt attack the Grammys when she got 1 nom for corruption and no i wasnt shocked at all since during voting time the era was long forgotten and irrelavant when the show took place in Feb. 2019 and during voting in Fall 2018. For the record, Afters Hours is not even top 5 on the BBYEC of 2020, so he doesnt even have the biggest album of the eligibility period.
Taylor decides her entire album roll-out based on the Grammies. Ofcourse she’s not the type to diss them. She’s more the type to cry about it in private, everyone expresses emotions differently.November 25, 2020 at 11:24 am #1203872707
Still, The Weeknd thinks the Grammys have an obligation to nominate him, strikes very bad to any nominated and non-nominated artist watching. Someone should explain to him this is not the Billboard Music Awards, where he will some awards, this is the Grammy awards and the BRP came to conlcusion other works were worthy of the recognition, the direct pop votes payed him dust and here we are now.
Girl shut up, you were probably not this rational when Reputation got 1 nom.November 25, 2020 at 10:15 am #1203872282
The line-up really favors Taylor being the only ballad.November 25, 2020 at 4:35 am #1203870998
I get the point that Abel lost R&B support. The biggest mystery is how the hell Mustin get so much votes.
Fucking KIM Scooter BraUN
The fact there’s a tie might show only like 500 people voted again hence you could get nominated with maybe like 30-40 votes.
