    I was hoping “ANTI” would get an AOTY nomination. Purpose? Views? No David Bowie or Radiohead?



    • ? December 6, 2016

      Adelephant >>>>>>>>> Beyonce

      • Christina Aguilera December 6, 2016

        Formation for record of the year ??? I didn’t even understand that song

    • ? December 6, 2016

      Lmfao at Rihanna and her Best recording package nomination ?????????????????????????????????????????????

    • Anne December 6, 2016

      4 songs from Lemonade are nominated…wow! Formation, Don’t Hurt Yourself, Hold Up, and Freedom, compared to only one for Adele… Hello, of course. Beyoncé clearly deserves AOTY but we’ll see.

      • Christina Aguilera December 6, 2016

        Adels hello stayed at numba 1 for week. Bey’s sony didnot even crack the top 10.
        By the way grammy is about quality and Adele served quality on that album.

      • Alex December 6, 2016

        @christina Aguilera what chart were u looking at?? Formation cracked the top ten 3 months after it was given away for free! You talk about chart positions, but then u contradict yourself and say it’s about quality? Shut the heck up and worry about your WASHED UP ASS FAVE!!!

    • Hydroquinone December 6, 2016

      IF and when Beyonce wins just 6 out of her 9 moms this will be the second time she wins 6 in one night and the 3rd times she wins the most in a single night, it will also make her the most awarded woman in Grammy history….. can’t wait, Beyonce will also be the most awarded living artist in history

    • 8 December 6, 2016

      The moment that justin bieber is nom for album of the year
      Is the moment i realised that grammys dont mean s*** anymore
      I dont care who will win
      Its became lower than than mtv awards

  2. WRTW? December 6, 2016

    COME THRU B****

  3. Mark December 6, 2016


    • Fancy BISH December 6, 2016

      Chile, this Lemonade is so good it could put Chick-fil-A out of business lol…CONGRATS BEY! #9Nominations #AOTY #ROTY #SOTY *GULPS LEMONADE*

  4. ? December 6, 2016

    Bey will be buying her awards

    • IDONOTREPLY2TROLLz December 6, 2016

      Even if she was, she can afford it unlike your broke ass. Squirt squirt. Ha!

      • ? December 6, 2016

        Shut up you bottom

    • 2bad2bme December 6, 2016

      I guess she bought her talent too huh?

      • Cupid December 6, 2016

        She did if you want to be technical

  5. IDONOTREPLY2TROLLz December 6, 2016

    Beyonce should win every category she’s in. Haters get in form !!

    • Music_popo December 6, 2016

      Adele is gonna win all the major categories….

      • Cupid December 6, 2016

        Adele deserves it

  6. Anne December 6, 2016

    Go Beyoncé!

  7. Jordan December 6, 2016

    YES BEYONCÉ!! THE QUEEN!! F*** the haters, the more they hate the more she wins! She is deserving of every award and nomination she ever recieves! I love her so much!! Also congrats too Adele, a massive fan too!!

  8. King December 6, 2016

    I think Beyoncé and Adele will clean up. I also think maybe one for Rihanna and drake. Drake album did good so did Adele. But I think lemonade was epic, she had a movie with her album she better get something.

  9. Rosie December 6, 2016

    Literally the only good things to come from this so far:
    • Lemonade slaying
    • Anderson .Paak’s BNA nomination (Malibu was my 2nd fave album this year. I’m so proud.)
    • Work’s ROTY nomination (the production is great, not gonna lie)
    The rest of these are a MESS and a half. Can’t believe Bowie and Radiohead got snubbed for f****** Purpose and boring ass Views. And 7 Years and Stressed Out ? These fake deep ass Facebook quote songs getting SOTY noms.

  10. Surprise..(DEC 2013) December 6, 2016

    To be honest, i wish ANTI was nominated over views and BLACKSTAR over purpose…HAPPY FOR BEY.

  11. Grapejuice fan December 6, 2016


  12. Paulo December 6, 2016

    wow. apart from the predicted Bey vs Adele clash, this is the weakest Song of the Year nominations in years. if they were going for Poppier tracks, they could’ve nominated something from Anti instead of I Took A Pill In Ibiza… seriously?

    • Career Ender December 6, 2016

      Pill is A GOOD POP RECORD with a message and not drunken vocals talking about nothing important

  13. King December 6, 2016

    Even if Beyoncé doesn’t win she still has more Grammys than all of them so hey…..

    • Music_popo December 6, 2016

      Its not even about that

  14. IStan4Rihanna. December 6, 2016

    So, Rihanna and Drake got one big nomination each?




    I was sure that ONE DANCE would be nominated for “ROTY”.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) December 6, 2016


      • Career Ender December 6, 2016

        it doesn’t and the grammys have spoken!

    • Rosie December 6, 2016

      ROTY is for production, in which One Dance deserves nothing. The mixing on that song is so bad. It only sounds good on radio.

    • King B December 6, 2016

      Pretty sure Sturgill Simpson (idk who that is) will win AOTY.

  15. Rosie December 6, 2016

    Now with Bowie and Radiohead getting snubbed, Bey has like a 75% chance of winning AOTY. 21 sold wayyyy more but had nowhere near as much acclaim or cultural impact. I think they’re gonna try to redeem themselves to her like they did with Kendrick after GKMC lost to Macklemore.

    • I can’t December 6, 2016

      Thinking the same thing. Without Radiohead and Bowie, this could be her year. I don’t think Drake stands a chance and honestly, looking at the other categories he’s in, I think he’ll actually go home empty handed. Adele does not deserve AOTY. Period. I will not stand for that basic, uninspired, tired, recycled album winning. She didn’t push herself. She didn’t try. Everyone else up there deserves it more than 25,

    • Memo December 6, 2016

      What cultural impact? You delusional asses really blow everything out of proportion.

  16. Wonder Woman December 6, 2016

    Views over Anti and Coloring Book for AOTY, whert?
    I cant @ Everyone predicting John will get 0 nominations

    • Paulo December 6, 2016

      “The ceremony will recognize the best recordings, compositions and artists of the eligibility year, which runs from October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2016” try again

  17. Surprise..(DEC 2013) December 6, 2016


    • Danny Beylmaoo December 6, 2016

      I was so happy Anderson Paak was nominated! But I hope Chance takes it, and I’m pretty sure he will.

  18. HailLegendBeysus December 6, 2016

    LMFAOOOOOOOOO AT PURPOSE GETTING AOTY AND ANTI????? IM CRYING!!!!! The Salvation Army were sure she’d get AOTY! I told y’all Bey had that SHÍT ON LOCK!!! AOTY SOTY AND ROTY!!! THE FUXKING SLAYAGE!!!

    • Wonder Woman December 6, 2016

      @least it won an AMA

      • HailLegendBeysus December 6, 2016

        LMFAOOO! They we’re all over Twitter going about Billboard thinks Anti will get AOTY. ?????

      • Swit Katz December 6, 2016

        The ama(kids choice awards) ain’t s***.

  19. IStan4Rihanna. December 6, 2016

    @Beyonce fans…


    Do you think LEMONADE will win?


    I honestly don’t.


    I think 25 and LEMONADE will cancel each other out and Sturgill Simpson will win.


    What do you think?

    • King B December 6, 2016

      I literraly just thought of the same thing.

    • Paulo December 6, 2016

      I don’t think they’ll be crazy enough to snub BOTH of them. it’s either one or the other.

    • Alex December 6, 2016

      @Rhianna Stan ALBUM of the year is that category where, NO ONE knows how it’s gonna turn out. I mean take 2015 for example. Beck won and it was argued that they weren’t caring about who sold the most albums as a determinant. Fast forward to this year, Taylor swift won, the artist that had the MOST sales in the category. We just have to watch the show and see to be honest. Real talk

    • Swit Katz December 6, 2016

      You’re clearly bitter and jealous if rihanna was nominated for that you wouldn’t be asking that question. You blacks are a jealous pack no wonder the successful blacks get away from the ratchet and ghetto people like you.

      • Rosie December 6, 2016

        You sound like a racist white.
        Black people don’t refer to themselves as “blacks.”

  20. Kiii December 6, 2016

    Chainsmokers nominated for best new artist? Lol no

  21. Rosie December 6, 2016

    On second thought, watch Sturgill’s ass win AOTY since the votes will be split.
    At least it’ll go to a decent country artist and not Luke Bryan or Florida Georgia Line or whatever inbred bro rap-country mess that’s so popular among rednecks now.

    • Career Ender December 6, 2016

      But last year there was another pop album nominated alongside 1989 and Basic Swift still won

  22. Wonder Woman December 6, 2016

    Now keep it classy, dont include those trash albums that LB claims they are albums of the year and Decade AKA Glory and Flop/Pablo

  23. IStan4Rihanna. December 6, 2016



    ANTI got 6 nominations


    LEMONADE got 8 nominations.



    • HailLegendBeysus December 6, 2016

      Lemonade Got 9
      Album of The Year
      Song of The Year
      Record of The Year
      Best Rap/Sung Collaboration
      Best Pop Vocal Performance
      Best Rock Performance
      Best Music Video
      Best Music Movie
      Best Contemporary Urban Album

  24. King B December 6, 2016

    Ugh. Sia is missing in the main categories, but I hope it’ll win best pop vocal. Cheap Thrill is snubbed!

  25. Paulo December 6, 2016

    YAASSSS @ Demi and Ariana being nominated at Pop. but wait… where is Pinhead Gomez? kiiii

  26. Kiii December 6, 2016

    Adele, Rih & Bey are all winning at least one Grammy! They were truly the big 3 of 2016

  27. pat December 6, 2016

    surprised and excited to see mya nominated….glad solo got one too.

  28. Wonder Woman December 6, 2016

    where is Solange the Sponge

  29. Rosie December 6, 2016

    “Don’t Hurt Yourself” getting a rock nom ? Girl lemme run over to the straight male music forums (Reddit, RYM, etc.) to bathe in their tears this morning. I know they’re FUMING over Radiohead barely getting s***. Hell, a certain subreddit I lurk on gets mad as hell every time a year end list is posted and Lemonade is #1 and ahead of their boring ass guitar rock faves.

    • Career Ender December 6, 2016

      HA HA HA!

    • Alex December 6, 2016

      Which sub? lol

      • Rosie December 6, 2016

        r/indieheads. EVERY time a YE list is posted where Lemonade is #1 there’s a long ass thread in the comments about why it’s “overrated” or how the critics are “up her ass so much” or “poptimism” or whatever lmao. They’re bitter because she’s shitting on that boring ass Car Seat Headrest album.
        r/music is fuming too but they’re also celebrating them recognizing ~real music!1~ with Twenty One Pilots so it cancels out unfortunately.

  30. .:: Centurion ::. December 6, 2016

    Rihanna got 8 nominations! ?

    • King B December 6, 2016

      Wow! Collaboration does wonders! Y’all should stream Kanye and Drake’s song to thank them. Congratulation Rih!

      • IStan4Rihanna. December 6, 2016

        I like you alot, as even though you’re “shady” ypu debate with facts like myself which is refreshing on this blog, but was that truly necessary?


        Needed Me & Kiss It Better were also nominated etc.


        By your logic, should we thank Jack White & Kendrick Lamar for her Rock/Rap nominations?


        Rihanna got 8 nominations and Beyoncé got 9 nominations. They both won (although I would have liked ANTI to score an AOTY nomination)

    • Career Ender December 6, 2016

      where is her album of the year nod??????

  31. Kiii December 6, 2016

    Dangerous Flop & Screamy Lovato got nominated? Lol guess you gotta throw the pop flops a bone every now & then…

  32. IStan4Rihanna. December 6, 2016






    • Career Ender December 6, 2016

      yes but where is her album of the year nod???

  33. Swit Katz December 6, 2016

    Anti is honestly overrated the songs were wack I hope Adele and Beyonce get the big awards they both deserve it. Their albums had substance unlike anti

  34. King B December 6, 2016

    I love Bey proves how versatile she is with a Grammy Nomination, and not just some b******* that came out from a random Stan on a blog.

  35. HailLegendBeysus December 6, 2016

    Poor Auntie had to cling to others for some Noms! Like I said SMOKE AND MIRRORS PEOPLE!

    • King B December 6, 2016

      Hailbeysus, at least the album is nominated for Best Recording Package and an Urban/R&B categories, you know those categories that the Navy look down at.

      • Career Ender December 6, 2016

        but today they are celebrating them, those muppets never cease to amaze

    • Career Ender December 6, 2016

      she got 1 main catergory nom, as usua…. with a help of a rapper

    • Wonder Woman December 6, 2016

      In my Best Nicki Minaj Anaconda impersonation
      “B**** you came dressed to clock”

  36. King B December 6, 2016

    Anyways, Congrats Bey and Rih! I hope they don’t look down on those R&B categories anymore. Also Adele and Sia!

  37. Paulo December 6, 2016

    Mya! Remy Ma! yeeeeeah! Beyoncé getting multiple noms in multiple genres!

    but I’m a bit mad at All Night not being nommed for R&B Performance.

  38. Career Ender December 6, 2016

    i thought Anti Success was better than Koolaid buttttttt
    madafaken buuuuuuuuuutttttttt

    • IStan4Rihanna. December 6, 2016

      I know. I am extremely stunned at that.


      Anyhow, BLACK EXELLENCE WON; Rihanna with 8 and Beyoncé with 9.

      • Career Ender December 6, 2016

        you’re not cool bruh, you’re hurting!!!!
        after advocating Anti as album of the year you lost harder than BRazil lost to GErmany in 2014 World Cup

        bye loser

  41. Career Ender December 6, 2016

    Don’t hurt yourself will win!

    • Rosie December 6, 2016

      It BETTER win unless it goes to Blackstar, then the loss is acceptable. Heathens is a Hot Topic mess and The Sound of Silence is the worst cover of 2016.

      • Career Ender December 6, 2016

        when i think of Blackstar i shake, but Dont Hurt YOurself still stands a chance. its a banger!

  42. Career Ender December 6, 2016

    Anti album of the millenium didn’t get to see the Album of The Year nom
    Lmfao and Bieber did, ahahahahahahahahah
    Purpose > Anti Sales

  43. Swit Katz December 6, 2016

    I hope beyonce wins I love her to death. Black women are so jealous of her hustle she’s such a strong woman

    • blue jeans December 6, 2016

      No one is jealous of that joke who can’t even outsell Avril Lavigne in albums sales yet she is supposed to be King/albums artist.

  44. Career Ender December 6, 2016

    1/3 of Rihanna’s noms is due to features from other people
    smokes and mirrors
    basic bxtch

  45. IStan4Rihanna. December 6, 2016

    Beyonce = 9 Nominations.


    Rihanna; Drake; Kanye West = 8 Nominations.

    Shout out to rassclaat MYA album getting it’s recognition.
    Hope Solange cranes gets a grammy ?✊?

  47. Metzo December 6, 2016

    Ewww @ “Views” being nominated for AOTY over “Anti” tho .
    Congrats to Rih and Bey. They will battling it out in 3 categories I think

  48. King B December 6, 2016

    @iStan I like you too! But I wanted to drag those 4 delusional Navy that have been dragging Bey all year long. Not to mention, laugh at the R&B categories that Bey won all these while.

  49. TheBeysusImpact December 6, 2016

    I bet that “Sturgill” guy will probably win AOTY… it better be Beyonce. SLAY!!!!! ?????????????????????????????????????????

  50. Career Ender December 6, 2016

    • blue jeans December 6, 2016

      Has Beyonce finally outsold Avril Lavigne in albums sales after 6 tries with 5214534125 singles and re-releases? I heard she’s been struggling for over a decade now.

      • JOHNVIDAL December 6, 2016

        Has Rihanna outsold anyone despite like 10 albums in 10 years? Seriously, your arguments are so laughable. Keep it cute and be thankful that Rihanna always gets all these cte nominations for collabos and for relasing 7 singles every year. Be thankful and enjoy it.

      • HailLegendBeysus December 6, 2016

        Avril Lavigne’s been outsold. Stay mad with your 93638372 troll accounts. We all knkw which pathetic Slavi member this is. ????

      • blue jeans December 6, 2016

        She actually did, the list is long. She sold way more singles, grossed more in touring and more money overall than that Pig in your avi. She has the best selling album by a black artist this decade too. Take a seat.

      • JOHNVIDAL December 6, 2016

        Rihanna has outsold or is better at… anything talent wise than MARIAH CAREY? First news! lol Seriously, there are a few Rihanna stans here that are the most delusional people can get. So now we have that she is more successful what Madonna and Mariah Carey, that when she sings live she channels Whitney Houston, that she´s a real songwriter and that she has the stage presence of Janis Joplin lol This list of delusions keeps getting longer.

  51. JOHNVIDAL December 6, 2016

    What???? LMAO Justin beiber? Arian grande? Demi lovato????? LMAO What a pathetic year seriously. What were they thinking? I hope they fix it a little bit with teh actual awards. Congrats to Beyonce for her nomination and to Adele. Not much more can be said. At this rate Rihanna is going to look like a goodess of artistry 🙂 🙂 🙁

    • Career Ender December 6, 2016

      but the question is will she win, or she’ll be like a beautiful derocative mannequin that walks away empty handed?

      • Career Ender December 6, 2016


    • blue jeans December 6, 2016

      Mad that Gaga didn’t make it with her disposable, cringeworthy, try-hard album? Anti made so many year-end lists for Best Album of 2016, Joanne is nowhere to be found. All that talent according to you, yet no one cares.

      • JOHNVIDAL December 6, 2016

        Who talked about Gaga???? I was talking about how appalling is that people with zero artistry like Ariana Grande or Justin beiber can get serious chances at the grammys. Just that. Anti can be all you want, Rihanna didn´t contribute a damn thing to it. So she remains artsy-less. Gaga shows more talent than Rihanna with just her last 2 or 3 performances, no need to create an album saluted by critics. It´s just facts. Anyway, this is not about Gaga (was she elegible at all to begin with? I´m just not that into nowadays grammys and how they work, I just point out the obvious blaspehmy that is putting justin beiber and the like sin huge categories. This has gone to the pits).

      • blue jeans December 6, 2016

        ‘Anti can be all you want, Rihanna didn´t contribute a damn thing to it.’

        Absolutely not true. Don’t talk about something you don’t know. She was the executive producer, main writer on many songs, art director for album package and the one that brought all those songs to life with her voice.

      • Swit Katz December 6, 2016

        Anti had no inspiring songs rihanna should go back to her old formula because no one will ever take her seriously artistry isn’t her thing. she’s just a bubble gum music kinda artist. I mean work was her only real hit and was the trashiest on her album. it shows her rihtarded fans only want her basic stuff

      • JOHNVIDAL December 6, 2016

        Please! let´s not debate about this. It´s not the topic. Rihanna is not a real artist and you cannot change that fact. She only lends her voice to the songs they offer her and records them in a few weeks at best. Nobody believes she creates songs. End of story.

    • Kiii December 6, 2016

      I was thinking the same thing. But I guess they gotta keep the social media teeny boppers appeased

    • Paulo December 6, 2016

      don’t be a snob. Confident and Dangerous Woman are good Pop albums and they both are grade A vocalists.

      • Mr.StLaurent December 6, 2016

        Agree Ariana & Demi can sing her ass of ?

      • Kiii December 6, 2016

        You’re kidding right? Both of their albums were so generic and forgettable. Their lack of artistry and vocal technique is very evident in their live performances as well. They have B-list vocals with D-list artistry

      • JOHNVIDAL December 6, 2016

        I agree. It´s painful such lack of artistry can be recognized (somehow) at the grammys nowadays.

  52. IStan4Rihanna. December 6, 2016

    @KING B.


    Okay. I get it. ?.


    I’m just happy that my fave got 8 nominations and I can’t believe that “Kiss It Better” was nominated? ?.


    She would have tied Beyonce with 1 more nomination, and I am PRESSED that she snubbed for AOTY over VIEWS and PURPOSE? ???

    • Career Ender December 6, 2016

      tying noms =/= wins seeing as Anti has been taking Ls all year on Sales, TOur Sales and Awards , until the fan voted AMAs remembered her empty 2016 Awards trophies cabinet

    • Swit Katz December 6, 2016

      They had meaningful songs it’s only the navy who see rihanna as this big star no one takes her seriously outside of your messy fanbase. Just look at how the grammys have kicked her to the curb because beyonce is in the race lol

      • blue jeans December 6, 2016

        You stan for Dicki Garbaj, the biggest joke of all time.

  53. Kai2dasuan December 6, 2016

    Well rihanna technically nominated for album of the year because is a feature on drakes views album which is nominated for album of the year.Congrats to Bey ,Rih, Adele,Kanye, Justin and let forget solange

    • IStan4Rihanna. December 6, 2016



      Let’s not reach for the stars here.


      She’s “featured” on the album, yes, but there is absolutely no credit that goes to her in teems of the overall nomination.


      She was nominated for 8 GRAMMY’s altogether but snubbed for AOTY… That’s that.

      • Mark111 December 6, 2016

        Everyone that is on an album wins a Grammy for AOTY, from writers, producers, to feat artists.

  55. Career Ender December 6, 2016

    like i said, Selena GOmez is the last singer on the list
    the most basic of them all
    Grammys don’t know her

  58. Anne December 6, 2016

    Look at all genres Beyoncé is nominated in: general r&b, rap, pop, rock…wow, a true testament of her versatility.

  59. Beysus my lord and savior December 6, 2016

    No shade no tea…… Rihanna is not a Grammy darling, but “Work” deserves to win SOMETHING!

    • Career Ender December 6, 2016

      And I say no

    Beyoncé slaying in multiple genres!!!! When will your favs?????

  62. Mark111 December 6, 2016

    Two albums that are in AOTY that do not belong The View and Pointless. We all know the Grammy put some of these pop music in there for ratings. I’m not even mad at Lemonade, it fits, 25,sure, I’m really surprised Blackstar didn’t get a spot and Anti. And I’m not bitter over Anti not getting it, but Kanye album is miles better than Drake’s. That’s OK, of Rihanna can walk away with Record of the Year, I’ll be happy.
    Anyway, the real surprise to me is Mya getting a R&B album nom, didn’t know she dropped an album. ?

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) December 6, 2016


      • Mark111 /.\ December 6, 2016

        I’m not, I haven’t heard anyone say that 25 was amazing, it just sold a lot. Lemonade not being so mainstream may give it the edge to win AOTY.

    • Career Ender December 6, 2016

      Work won’t win Record of the Year and you know it
      It is as basic as Swift’s Shake It
      And we know what happened to the latter

  63. Mark111 December 6, 2016

    Now I said this last year and I’ll say it again, AOTY rarely go’s to the popular or highest selling album, so don’t be surprised again if that unknown artist gets it. I called Beck winning last year and no on believed me. ?

    • Career Ender December 6, 2016

      Basi Swift won last year so your poverty mentality is cancelled like Anti’s AOTY nom

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) December 6, 2016

        Exactly…1989 won last year and we all know kendrick deserved it by far.

      • Mark111 December 6, 2016

        You should look up the definition of the word RARELY. Pest proving again that they can’t read.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) December 6, 2016

      I get ur point and you are right about what you said..but 1989 winning just last year could mean the could also award commercial albums too. I might be wrong, we will see.

  64. Mark111 December 6, 2016

    BTW haters, Rihanna has 9 nominations. The last one is Best Recording Package. ?

    • Beysus my lord and savior December 6, 2016

      Due to features.?

      • Mark111 December 6, 2016

        Don’t Write By Yourself: feat Jack Black

        Freeman: feat Kendrick

        All the Minutemaid album now, the album has features. So don’t hurt yourself pest. ?

      • Beysus my lord and savior December 6, 2016

        Seriously? MOST of Rihanna’s noms are due to features. Beyoncé is the main artist for both, not a featured s****??

  65. .:: Centurion ::. December 6, 2016

    Rihanna co-wrote Drake’s “Too Good”, so if “Views” somehow wins AOTY, Rihanna will be awarded a Grammy. So technically Rihanna has 9 nominations.

    • Wonder Woman December 6, 2016

      LMFAO, I can’t

      • Wonder Woman December 6, 2016

        ……@The delusion
        By your logic then rihanna has 10 / more nominations since Views is also nominated for Best Rap album, then again you’re a R******

    • blue jeans December 6, 2016

      She wasn’t overshadowed by anyone. She was the most searched on Google after that night and her dancehall performance was the most watched on Youtube.

      You KING fave is all smoke and mirrors. She is supposed to be an albums artist, yet Rihanna, a single artist, holds the best selling album by a black artist this decade. Why is that, even after two Super Bowl performances?

  67. IStan4Rihanna. December 6, 2016

    LMAO. Now they’re clinging to “features” even though she’s one of the most nominated acts this year, and only ONE nomination behind the act with the most nominations.




    Anyway… ???

    Nobodies clinging to features except Rihanna
    The Hive have always used features as a drag for Riherpés. They dragged her for all her features she’s needed to remain relevant. Practically all of her Grammys are featured grammys.
    Rihanna basically needs features for a Grammy and some sales. Drake saved Work from plummeting! Poor Auntie all smoke and Mirrors! ???????

    Where the fudge is Solange and Tweets album on this list?? (did Tweet even put that album up for consideration). AOTY is a joke. Drake should be nowhere near that. Bieber sucks but at least he had hits all throughout the album. Even though I’m not a fan, Anti would be better placed to be nominated. Surprised Bowie is not nominated in that category. Kanye was snubbed too, although he hasn’t matched the quality of MBDTF

  78. IStan4Rihanna. December 6, 2016

    “Clinging” once more, of course. As if the outcome is going to be changed by its upset opinions and notions. How tragic can it be. ???.


    Anyhow, @SURPRISE/METZO etc.


    What awards do you think Beyoncé win?


    I honestly believe that Lemonade and 25 will cancel eachother out and that Sturgill will get it, albeit Lemonade deserves it. Also, ROTY and SOTY is definitely going to Adele (not even my fave is winning that) and Urban Contemp. is a throw-up between Beyoncé and Rihanna. If Beyonce doesn’t win AOTY, then they’ll give Urban Contemp. to Beyonce.

    Best R&B song Kiss it Better
    Best R&B performance 50/50 Needed Me vs Cranes , but Id like for Cranes to win
    Rap songs I think Kanye might sweep
    Drake will be luck to win, atleast he has enough streams to make up for the loss
    I love chance tha rapper
    Rock Performance I think DHY was performed to excellence , id like Bey to win
    Rap album give to Chance

    The f****** over at the Grammy academy totally snubbed rihanna and im mad pressed asf, and yes they going to hand her the urban contemporary as a consolation prize like they do every year, they can just keep it. Anti was quality, everyone knows that, its up to you to either admit it or not. Seems they just a basic ass chart award show like the teen choices. But my fave is unbothered, she is not thirsty to be on top unlike beyonce. the last time beyonce did a normal album rollout was during 4. Ever since she has been doing the absolute most because she knows her music aint s*** without the stupid visual crap. My fave still has hits, her music still resonates with the public, and thats the ultimate test. Formation record/song of the year my tinea infested foot! That song had zero impact whatsoever. But then they need to kiss adele and bey’s asses for their ratings. And 25, wow what an overrated album, adele took a big fat turd with that record, that album is a total snooze fest, its the same s*** shes been doing, same chord progressions and melodramatic emo wailing, we get it u whale, you have a sad love life, get with it

    Lovebird says:

    Janet Jackson may have had her most iconic era after 4 albums but Ray of Light > anything Janet Jackson has ever and will ever release.

    In fact in the whole 90s era, there’s not a single album that comes close to Madonna’s Ray of light in terms of quality, production and impact. This is why Janet, despite having more talent than Madonna lost to her and is also why Beyonce will lose to Rihanna.

    As Rated R proved, when it comes to a quality project, Rihanna shits on Beyonce any day and Rihanna’s Ray of light is coming, I cannot wait for it.


  111. Alex December 6, 2016

    So there’s no more doubt, this is not legit, an album like Lemonade gets nominated for AOTY but David Bowie’s last masterpiece Blackstar is not, not to mention that this could have been a way to honor such an incredible artist, an artist that is truly irreplaceable, get those Grammys Miss Carter, she loves them, the Grammys has officially lost all the credibility they once had, she might actually win best rock performance too, LOL.

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler December 6, 2016

      The Grammys lost credibility for nominating the most critically acclaimed album of the year but not for nominating Views? Despite the fact, that it’s Drake’ s worst reviewed album to date? Lol Boy bye!Find a better excuse to hate.
      I think Beyoncé’s Lemonade and self titled are her most cohesive albums. I think Lemonade is close to being a VISUAL masterpiece, and will probably end up being the best album she will ever make. There are so many genres of music on it. I’ve seen reviews from straight ahead rock and alternative reviewers who like it a lot. She deserves aoty

    Bey, say I slay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  119. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? December 6, 2016

    All I know is that “Don’t Hurt Yourself” BETTER WIN the Best Rock Performance category.

    @Suicide, IT BETTER WIN! “Blackstar” was an amazingly-haunting album, but David would want Bey to win.

    “Beyonce is now a 62-time Grammy nominee, with more nominations than any other female artist in Grammy history.
    The superstar musician has 20 Grammy Awards” ????

    Lol congrats to Demi for finally achieving what Ariana did in her first year lmao! Congrats to Ariana for getting her noms but I doubt she’ll win, competition is pretty stacked. LOL @ Purpose getting in the main categories over Dangerous Woman. Congrats to Rih and Bey too! I’m shocked Work got a nom, I didn’t think the Grammy committee would appreciate it.

    SN: How tf are The Chainsmokers new? They are garbage EDM tbh. Hell, even Marshmellow is better.
