Anyway 5 Grammys in the pocket. Now when do we start the Oscar campaign for Billie.January 27, 2020 at 12:50 pm #1203314917
That doesn’t negate the fact that she is the safe choice though, in terms of the artist profile. She is inoffensive.
Anyway, I think the album wins will age well. But the other wins will not. Bad Guy is really as generic as it gets. And we all know the voters didn’t pick WWAFWDWG because of the good songs in it, they picked it because they heard Bad Guy all year long, and they’re generic as fuck.
The album is bigger and more succesful than Bad Guy so I really doubt it only won cause of Bad Guy.January 27, 2020 at 12:39 pm #1203314891
Lol at Billie being a left field choice. White girl singer songwriter who writes songs that are “deep”, “mature” and “relatable”. Someone put it perfectly last night it’s like a room of old white men giving presents to this child at her Bat Mitzvah. Worst sweep in the history of the Grammys.
No one is calling her a left field choice. There’s a middleground there. She obviously did have a LOT playing in her advantage and was seen as the frontrunner but she’s a 18yo girl on her debut album, that automatically makes her atypical. She didn’t check all the boxes like an Adele or Bruno.January 27, 2020 at 12:17 pm #1203314843
Manic, Rare and Dance Monkey aren’t going to happen. But does it even matter if Adele releases…
I can’t see Adele releasing in summer so she’d have to drop before may imo to meet the deadline. At least the album, maybe a song could happen in late summer.January 27, 2020 at 12:10 pm #1203314838
Before yesterday: Billie’s winning because she’s a safe choice and her album is baity. They love singer songwriters
Today: Billie is like so weird and unique and honestly not a Grammy-type of artist
I guess people always had different opinions on this cause there were many people calling her too (faux) edgy for old white people aswell.January 27, 2020 at 12:09 pm #1203314836
Lana could have worn a burqa the entire era and she still wouldn’t have won, she doesn’t have the numbers that Billie has. Ariana her album was more in line with what you expect from current pop wheareas Billie really found her own sound. Lizzo is the only one who’s sexual behaviour could have turned off a few voters since it was seen as attention seeking quite a bit.
Also Lana has lyrics that could classify as very anti-feminist aswell.January 27, 2020 at 11:44 am #1203314784
Billie is an inspired choice. Stop hating. Glad they got it right and didn’t go for an actual safe choice like Vampire Weekend.January 27, 2020 at 11:39 am #1203314775
No one was snubbed imo, but well Ariana is the biggest name of the night to have 0 wins.January 27, 2020 at 10:49 am #1203314651
16.5 million still makes it the most viewed award show.
Awards ratings have been going down for years as people just watch online or at least the clips on YouTube and social media. I’m sure it pulled in a ton of views on the net.
Okay bet they managed to stay stable last year, it’s not like the climate changed drastically the past year.January 27, 2020 at 1:02 am #1203313895
Oblivion in 2021: after overcoming Manchester, the death of Mac, splitting with her fiancee and being humilated live on tv by the Grammy’s Ariana still overcame all that and put out an album. Aoty winner. She’s the only one who deserves it. PeriodT.January 26, 2020 at 2:52 pm #1203308465
Imogen said their micros would be turned off. Well actually do that.January 26, 2020 at 2:48 pm #1203308414
Just saw a BTS fan army account spreading the word in their fanbase to not trend anything about the Grammys tonight out of respect for Kobe with 100k retweetsJanuary 26, 2020 at 2:45 pm #1203308392
Was reading Twitter and so many people want the Grammys cancelled so they can mourn Kobe in peace at the Staples CenterJanuary 26, 2020 at 1:26 pm #1203307436
A former ATRL Nicki Minaj stan being a Grammy winner before Nicki. We love seeing it.
