If 911 is played on radio, then I think its the song she submits since it will be more recent in voters minds.September 17, 2020 at 3:40 pm #1203713694
They really should’ve penetrated the pop categories tbh.
Would’ve nominated them for the following.
• Best New Artist
• Best Pop / Duo Group — “What Makes You Beautiful”
Song of the Year — “Story of My Life”
Best Pop Duo / Group Performance – “Story of My Life”
Best Pop Vocal Album – Midnight Memories
Record of the Year – “Night Changes”
Song of the Year – “Night Changes”
Best Pop Duo / Group Performance – “Night Changes“
Best Pop Vocal Album – Four
Best Pop Vocal Album – Made in the AM
If Duo/Group was still separated into Collaboration & Bands they probably would’ve been nominated every year.
Four was their best album, and I think Night Changes should have given them a win somewhere.
As for BTS, I’m still not sure they’ll breakthrough with the Grammys, regardless how long Dynamite charts utilizing whatever’s means necessary.September 17, 2020 at 12:50 pm #1203713387
Happy for Thomas Rhett! He puts on a great live show filled with both upbeat music to dance to and slow ballads to sing a long with. Plus he’s been putting out new content during COVID, so he’s truly been entertaining the whole year.September 16, 2020 at 9:23 am #1203709881
Excited to hear “betty” performed tonight on the ACMs and what that might bring for the commercial success of the song following the show.September 16, 2020 at 8:03 am #1203709744
This week’s chart is one of the worst in a while…yikes. I still think some major changes need to be made with the calculations. If a song is “hot” I shouldn’t have to seek it out in order to hear it or know what it is.September 15, 2020 at 1:52 pm #1203708547
I also think Carell will win solely from Sucession vote-spliting and goodwill from The Office (which is more popular than ever now).September 15, 2020 at 1:29 pm #1203708497
Just watched the trailer and I am SO EXCITED for Season 2! Looks like we might be seeing some things from Star Wars past…September 6, 2020 at 7:57 am #1203689145
I think Fine Line and Future Nostalgia both miss AOTY. The Grammys haven’t been too friendly to straight-up pop albums in this category, especially in recent years. Last year, Grande and Eilish were the only 2 “pop” albums in AOTY, and Eilish is more alternative than pop and Grande’s album had heavy influences outside of typical pop music. That’s just one example, but recent years show this trend. I think the “pop” picks for this year will be Swift (whose album isn’t pop), Post Malone (whose album isn’t really a pop album), and Gaga (whose album is more dance). Gaga is vulnerable here, but I still think she makes it in. If Swift is blocked by the BRP, then I think Styles and Lipa would have a shot of getting in. I think diversity will continue to play a key role in AOTY nominees, so I am expecting another diverse lineup this year.
Styles and Lipa will each get 1 general field nom in SOTY or ROTY, and pick up noms for Pop Solo and Pop Album.September 5, 2020 at 8:54 pm #1203688691
Sam Hunt’s new album is trash. Why was it popular?
Did you even listen to the album? There’s some great tracks on it, even if many were originally released as singles. “Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90s” would have been a smash if he sent it to radio. The country genre really doesn’t deserve Sam Hunt, and he doesn’t really fit the genre and I wish he “left.”
Southside is certainly no Montevallo (hard for anyone to top such a perfect album), but it’s not garbage.September 2, 2020 at 12:49 pm #1203682301
Is the BTS song an internet-only thing, or did they crossover to radio? Haven’t heard the song yet (KPop’s not really my thing).
I understand they are popular, but I personally know only about a handful of people that actually listen to them. Is their popularity universal, or more internationally based? I am trying to determine if the Grammys (predominately US-focused) would embrace them.September 2, 2020 at 12:43 pm #1203682290
