Weigh In: 2016 Grammy Nominations’ Snubs & Surprises

grammy snub janet jackson 2016 thatgrapejuice

It’s that time of year again!

Indeed, the air is still buzzing as yesterday brought with it the highly anticipated 2016 Grammy nominations unveiled, per usual, via an announcement special weeks before the actual showing.  But, what also comes with the ‘per usual’ announcement are the jaw-dropping surprises, snubs, and all out “shut-outs” that accompany the annual spectacle.

Always a heated debate-starter, the coveted tally saw the likes of Janet Jackson, Jill Scott, Rihanna, Madonna, and more all go without mention.

For Bieber, whose manager made headlines for his rant regarding his 2013 Grammy shutout, his long-awaited nod came this year as, otherwise, it would’ve been a fourth-go-round despite consistently clocking some of the year’s biggest hits.  Like the ‘What Do You Mean’ maestro, Scott has been very vocal about shut-outs in the past.  And, while Omarion‘s rant is the main protest making headlines, we’re sure many more are to come.

In the meantime, tuck in below for our list of other surprises and snubs:

It’s been fifteen years since singer/actress/poetess Jill Scott took her first promenade up charts with ‘A Long Walk,’ ‘Getting in the Way,’ and ‘He Loves Me’ all found aboard her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Who Is Jill Scott?’

Fast forward to 2015 and the songstress is still hot as ever – a feat verified by her newly released album ‘Woman’ (her first since 2011’s chart-topping ‘The Light of the Sun’). Kicked off by singles ‘You Don’t Know’ and the R&B hit ‘Fool’s Gold’ (currently #3 on R&B charts), the project – like her releases that have preceded it – is being lauded by critics as one of the year’s “must haves.”

But, even in the height and hype of the critical acclaim, the question remains:  is the public listening?
