    • CZeal December 21, 2016

      Spoiler alert. Beyonce wins in every category she’s nominated in…just cause. Tgj

  2. blue December 19, 2016

    who chooses the nominees and what is the criteria

    • Abel Minaj December 19, 2016

      It’s tgj sis, i wouldn’t think about it this deeply if i were you

  3. Paulo December 19, 2016

    so we just click? no ‘submit’ button? or do I ~have~ to tweet the results to actually vote?

    y’all got a lotta lotta nerve to snub The Weeknd for the martian midget

    • @ASAPicon December 20, 2016

      B******, I DONE CHECKED ALL THEM BOXES, ONLY TO GET TO THE END AND FIND NO DAMN SUBMIT BUTTON!, I Am OVER IT! But TGJ Voting systems have always been flawed!

  4. Citi December 19, 2016

    All the hate towards Britney all year long yet a third of yall voted Glory as underrated album. I knew haters secretly listened to her. And Lemonade should only win “overhyped album of the year”

    • ?Yellow Diamonds? December 19, 2016

      Girl that’s Britney Spears stans with multiple accounts…stop

    • #ispeakfacts December 20, 2016


      Musically this was Bey’s worst album! But creatively her best being that it was a film/visual album!

  5. Suicide Blonde December 19, 2016

    At this point I think they should renamed That Grape Juice: Beyoncé’s End of Year Awards.

    • Lewey December 19, 2016

      Yas, B****! Beyonce will always win. Stay mad HUNTY!

    • SMH December 20, 2016

      Yep, her expense account doesn’t discriminate when purchasing accolades.

  7. Datredd23 December 19, 2016

  9. The Wig Snatcher December 19, 2016

    You might as well have called this the Beyonce Vs. Rihanna Awards Part XI. I’m here for it and watching the stan wars go down.

  10. truthtea December 19, 2016

    I know this is just for fun but how you gon snub Adele for album of the year? She murdered everybody in sales and had the bigger impact and breaking more records, even her own. And doing it with the #1 song!

    Btw, get rid of some of these ads. They’re causing your site to malfunction!

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler December 19, 2016

      This is an URBAN blog. Deal with it!

    • BEY>RIH December 19, 2016

      Her album and the mahority of its sales were from last year…

    • #ispeakfacts December 20, 2016


      I agree!!! Her album IS the best body of work this year musically!

  11. Hi Jamon December 19, 2016

    These are the most corny awards. “Beyonce for being Beyonce” “Kelley Rowland underrated” (how are you going to nominatate people who have been more successful as a solo artist?). “Rihanna saying her album is platinum? No matter what anyone think, it’s certifies platinum!!
    TGJ is soooooo lame and biased!! You cater to a kid fan base!! Grow up and stick to the basics!!

    • BEY>RIH December 19, 2016

      Her album has NOT sold 1 mil in the U.S.

      • Hi Jamon December 19, 2016

        Samsung paid for 1 million copies and gave the away. Also worldwide sales count. She made a business deal and pocketed $25 million. I don’t know about you or TGJ, but I didn’t make anything close to that, neither did a lot of other celebrities.

  12. Memo December 19, 2016


  13. blue December 19, 2016

    all you have to do is look at the fan category to see how the voting result will turn out…

  14. MusicFan103 December 19, 2016

    I know the winners already.

    TGJ reports BEYONCE wins everything, and Kelly Rowland wins her annual “we’ll see you next year” award.

    The End!

  15. Danny Bey December 19, 2016

    I never understood why everyone is/was so pressed about JT’s ‘Cant Stop The Feeling’..It was a song for a kids movie, of course it was gonna be generic and cheesy. But what Rihann’s excuse for ‘Work’?….

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy December 19, 2016

      Work is a cultural anthem.

      • Danny Bey December 19, 2016


      • The Wig Snatcher December 19, 2016

        Gurl stop. LOL

  16. MUSICHEAD December 19, 2016

    Queen Sugar is definitely my favorite new show.
    Power is the best show overall.
    Rihanna definitely had the single of the year with Work while Beyonce had album of the year based on the combination of the Lemonade visuals and appeal of the music even tho the music was not outstanding. Chance def is the best new artist and I am still shocked that Donald Dump won the election smh.

    • BEY>RIH December 19, 2016

      Why couldn’t you just leave it at Lemonade was the album of the year? Work wasn’t musically oustanding yet its your “single of the year”.

  17. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy December 19, 2016

    Where was Atlanta for best new show? Also, what about real housewives of Patomac?

    • The Wig Snatcher December 19, 2016

      You beat me to mentioning to those two shows. Sam is too fixated on Beyoncé. I’m surprised that he didn’t nominate the Country Music Awards and the VMAs as best TV shows just for booking Bey.

  18. WRTW? December 19, 2016

    Every year I die at the
    Kelly Rowland underrated artist award

    • WRTW? December 19, 2016

      But Jojo definitely deserves it, I met her this year sweet girl

    • The Wig Snatcher December 19, 2016

      I’d be offended if I were Kelly Rowland.

  19. The Wig Snatcher December 19, 2016

    Since Kelly has had too many chances to stop being overrated, the award should be named after Tweet, Lil’ Mo, Chrisette Michele or Letitia Luckett.

  20. HailLegendBeysus December 19, 2016

    LMFAOOO AT AntiSuccess World Tour being absent from Billboards top tours of 2016 list! ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    • The Wig Snatcher December 19, 2016

      Shade but facts!!! ???????

  21. LOL where December 19, 2016

    The “You Tried It / What Were You Thinking” Award. I cast my vote for beyonce for her pseudo pro black stance all while still looking like a white man in full drag. kikis of all kiis this year tbh.

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler December 19, 2016

      Shut your fake wanna be Donald trump ass up!

  22. RihYonce December 20, 2016

    I’ll some this up. Beyoncé clearly had the hottest single and album of the year. Usher had the most underrated album his album was everything. Adele always slays. Rihanna and Drake work was a typical but dope collaboration. Best movie belongs to Michel’le. And the most shocking thing this year was Kim getting robbed.

  23. MusicLife December 20, 2016

    What the eff?
    I click this post on my phone… tell me why all places where beyonce and solange are nominees it is checked for them and I haven’t viewed this page on my phone?
    I knew this was going to be rigged.

  24. Bryhmin December 20, 2016

    Album of the year is Adele. Rihanna has had a stunning year in music as well & is Forever breaking records. Beyonce has the most impressive tour but her music is tragically boring. Kelly is a fighter. Drake had a commercially successful album.

  25. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! December 20, 2016

    Worst year in music-=2016

    This year has been terrible for music…. let’s hope 2017 is better

  26. steve December 20, 2016

    That Kelly rowland underrated award is totally unnecessary.

  27. No favs, just here for the music December 20, 2016

    Britney Spears in ‘The Michael Jackson Video’ category though? Lol!!!

  28. Devan December 20, 2016

    I really hope Tinashae wins her category !!!
    And yas for Kelly Rowland slaying her category its gonna be close betweet her and Nicki Minaj !!
    The Rowlandstones VS the Barbs will be interesting lol

    As for Album of the Year
    Bey is SCALPINg !!! ???

  29. Terny December 20, 2016

    These categories kinda wack

  30. Beyhive December 20, 2016

    Bey is Queen
    Kelly Rowland sis…2017 is yours better pick up where our queen left off ?

  31. Kenneth December 22, 2016

    This was a year of beyonce, solange, drake and with notable appearances/albums drops from the likes of j.cole, frank ocean, alicia keys, fantasia….

    Kanye- genius but tormented
    Tinashe- definitely underated

  32. Devan December 24, 2016

    Kelly Rowland
    #Rowlandstones ???
