Adele won’t win a third AOTY just because it will be successful, we have been through this, we haven’t even heard it yet we speculate it will win.
the same apply to TS, if she wins next year then Adele is 100% in 2022
and Adele is more safe and less likely to get blocked by the BRPOctober 20, 2020 at 8:17 am #1203790957
Hopefully Gaga and Dua can snatch the nominations, so this category can be interesting for the very first time since pop artists were bannedOctober 20, 2020 at 8:12 am #1203790947
I hope we can have nice performers, I dont really care who wins
A lot of BTS and Taylor Swift is what I expect…October 20, 2020 at 8:09 am #1203790941
An Adele album can coexist with other pop albums, the notion that it can’t is ridiculous. Not everything is about winning Grammys, they can’t plan around everything.
Exactly, Ariana would never plan an album cycle about winning Grammys, that would be a very Taylor Swift kind of thing to doOctober 20, 2020 at 8:06 am #1203790936
The Performers could be great next year
Megan Thee Stallion
I can see many A Listers performing, unlike this floppy yearSeptember 22, 2020 at 3:08 pm #1203728507
Folklore going for a possible 7th week #1 per HDD with 90k. If this happens, Taylor Swift will become the woman with most weeks #1 ever on Sunday, yep the coverage just in time for the voting period.
LMAO, just a few days ago you were trying to convince us you were not a swiftie, just a casual taylor swift listener who wanted her to get her due, now here you are with your paties getting wet to the idea of Folklore getting another week at number 1.
so interesting hahaha, just saying.September 22, 2020 at 10:51 am #1203728020
Dua’s manager is very confident about her as he is saying that dua will win her well deserved award at grammys. I think he is talking about best pop vocal album.
that would be a miracle, she stands no chance against the weeknd in the song categories and taylor in the album onesSeptember 22, 2020 at 9:52 am #1203727825
Option 4 is the best, Taylor gets in but the award goes to black artist. Blocking Taylor will spark another conversation as the nomination have been manipulated to the core in favor of one party. They don’t have solid reason to justify the blocking since folklore is slaying in both commercial and critical department. Like others said earlier, Grammy will turn into political stage and truly lose its purpose.
they for sure have a solid reason, we all can see it.
that option is the most unlikely, dont have too much trust on the judgement of the old white voters with bias against black and urban artistsSeptember 22, 2020 at 9:42 am #1203727808
I don’t think Taylor will win if nominated, just like she wouldn’t with Lover.
They can’t just block her every time.
Taylor would totally win if nominated, she is the perfect safe white choice old voters would go for
I dont think the voters will sunddenly act woke this time cuz of the BLM, they are the same old voters, they will do the same thing they have been doing since forever
We need more open minded voters, but saddly I dont see that happening any time soon
and no, I aint saying she has to be blocked for ever, but at least wait until it is a better climate to have her in, a 3rd win just right now would hurt both, Taylor and The Grammys ReputationSeptember 22, 2020 at 9:29 am #1203727783
these are the AOTY scenarios I can see happening:
1. Taylor Swift is not blocked by the BRP, she becomes the safe white choice, folklore wins AOTY. Her fans lose their panties of joy, but the rest of people start complaining on how can Taylor win AOTY 3 times in a decade but deserving artists like Beyoncé or Kendrick cannot win even once
Taylor starts getting a huge amount of blacklash, and the Grammys are called racist by most of people
2. Taylor gets blocked by the BRP, but still a white artist, probably Fiona wins anyways, the same kind of scenario (of 1.) happens but a at a much smaller scale. (in this scenario the fans of Taylor complain about how right was Deborah last year and how rigged the Grammys are
3.Taylor gets blocked and the voters go with a black artist in AOTY, swifties still complain but most of people would be absolutely happy with the result
4. Taylor is allowed to be nominated, but somehow by a wonder, the voters do not go with a safe bland white artist, but they pick a black artist to win AOTY, and in this scenario, the most unlikely, no one complains too muchSeptember 19, 2020 at 7:27 am #1203717579
how would a perfect campaign for the grammys look like? many performances on late night shows, or release a single,…?
being white is a good way to start.
now being serious, the way Taylor in 2015-2016 and Billie 2019-2020 campaigned were probably the most effective ones I have seem in a while
the only artist I can see campaigning that hard this year is Dua Lipa, not even The Weeknd who is having a fantastic oneSeptember 19, 2020 at 7:23 am #1203717576
Holy had huge radio deal in USA. Song did kinda bad on Spotify first day globally, but 2m in USA. I don’t know why they rushing a new era.
it worked for Ariana starting two eras in the same year, and they were clearly trying to emule it, it of course would not work this time, the amount of different factors is too long to list.September 19, 2020 at 7:19 am #1203717567
BTS release another version of Dynamite. Overexposed is not a good thing (insert Ed Sheeran).
they are in a tricky situation, her fans would never get tired of buying and getting new stuff, and the GP dont seem to care about them too much, so overexposing is not exactly going to affect them.
they success is not organic at all, but they get what they need
