    • I HATE WHYYTE N BLACCK BITCHEZZZZ both not ish May 16, 2018

      Games getting tired how can cardi B Be nominated for a Grammy when she cannot rap,… they’re really lowering the bar for the music industry

      Best New Artist male goes to Daniel Caesar,

      • Section8DaGreat May 16, 2018

        Same way Taylor Swift can win Album of the year at the Grammys and can’t sing

    • Alexandria May 16, 2018

      I agree. It’s very tired. Same people nominated every year regardless if they have new material out. The EBT Awards should step their game up. Soul Train awards is better but gets less promo.

  2. Ashley May 16, 2018

    This is a tough one but I’m looking forward to the show.

  3. Naughty One May 16, 2018

    This site is so lame. Always mentioning Beyoncé’s name first as if she’s a major nominee. She’s nominated for the same as Rihanna in the same category, but you didn’t mention her. And like her or not, but Cardi is the one with the most nominations with 7.

    • ??? May 16, 2018

      lmao Very true. Cardi’s picture should be front and center, roach shouldn’t even be in the picture lmao

    • Jeans May 16, 2018

      Exactly! Any way to put beyonce in a post.

  4. ? + ✈ = ? May 16, 2018

    Beyonce been flopping all year! Why she nominated?

  5. Section8DaGreat May 16, 2018

    I love Bey but people are so corny the way they keep using her for clout. BET knows darn well “Top Off” should not have been nominated and ThatFlopJuice was so pressed to say she was nominated. Ugh, I’m over the pressed fakers.

  6. c May 16, 2018

    Janelle Monae should’ve been nominated for best female instead of Kehlani. she has barely released any new music recently

  7. AnonymousTruth May 16, 2018

    Motorsport should’ve been nominated for best collaboration over Bartier Cardi or Top Off …. IMO ??‍♂️

  8. Buzz Off! May 16, 2018

    Uhhh Why Is BEY and Rih Nominated ? They Don’t have an Album Or Neither New Single Out..

  9. Ajm265 May 16, 2018
