Ratings: Grammy Viewership Slips To All-Time Low

Published: Tuesday 28th Jan 2020 by Rashad

It appears not even the combined forces of Ariana Grande, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, and Camila Cabello would be enough to save this year’s Grammys from failing to attract viewers.

Indeed, after preliminary ratings reports indicated a low tune-in for the Alicia Keys-hosted affair, today’s official and final figures confirm the previously suspected:  folks were simply not here for Grammys 2020.

Garnering its lowest total viewership figure ever, tuck in below to see exactly how many tuned in:

Viewership:  18.7 million


The over three-hour marathon of performances and trophy handouts gathered 18.7 million viewers for CBS on Sunday night, marking the ceremony’s lowest rated broadcast ever, according to Nielsen ratings.

This year’s broadcast saw a roughly six percent drop from last year’s ceremony, which had 19.9 million viewers. However, the Grammys faced a whopping 53 percent drop from 2012, which had 39.9 million viewers.

    Was no stars there lol

  2. MONICA January 28, 2020

    Ye no didn’t even watch

  3. Ugghh January 28, 2020

    18.7 is still a lot more than what I was expecting. However, it was a bunch of up and coming artists who we have seen perform the same song all of 2019

  4. JUST SAYING January 28, 2020

    they had all these people with 1 album or 1 hit under their belt; treating them like legends. Its seem bought these days. Not to mention that ITS MOSTLY WHITE STARS ACTING AND DRESSING BLACK , singing what could be rnb or hip hop music. VERY STALE AND SEASON-LESS TO ME!

  5. Only Facts January 28, 2020

    Yeah, that’s what they get for letting a RACIST perform!

      The tears

      Camila performed in 2018 and 2019 also.

      Trust me, they are gonna bring her back next year to perform again and u are gonna cry about it. ??

      Where is normani?
      Performing love lies at McDonald’s.

        A hit dog will holler. I didn’t SAY* which racist I was referring to. Sip that tea ☕

        Cry cry cry.

        Ur not bold enough to say Camila’s name.
        Ur a bìtch àss

        Where is normani?
        U refuses to answer this question.

    Alicia keys is a boring host.

    The only A listers present were Arianna and shawmila (shawn and Camila). Then bts with their strong fan base.
    The rest were one hit wonders.

    Stop nominating people like h.e.r, nobody knows that girl. Even giving her a performance slot, really?
    A tribute to nipsey hussel, a rapper nobody knows. Really?

  7. Gregg January 28, 2020

    I think its because the music out now just sucks….I didn’t even DVR it because the last few years I fast forwarded through the entire thing like all this is boring.

  8. Clarks0oñ January 28, 2020

    camila cabello’s “first man” saw the biggest pageview bump, jumping 6,734 percent overnight after her #GRAMMYs performance dedicated to her father

    They hate to see it.
    Here comes the tears and melt downs.

    Once again Camicky takes another L walking away another year without a Grammy

    ?????. Payola will only get you so far

    Ticket Sales are poor according to HDD

    ??. She only has streams which are a product of payola hence why she was dropped


    As I stated, the public sees thru smoke and mirrors.

    DaBaby one of the hottest rappers did his charity work for Camicky. Still barely doing anything on charts after payola and tv performances. The struggle is truly real.


    • Only Facts January 28, 2020

      Her one rabid fan said Canola oil was a ratings draw. This article and lady years ratings say otherwise.

      • Only Facts January 28, 2020

        Last years *

  10. Nicky January 28, 2020

    Congrats to Lizzo!!

    Normani is up next.

    VMA Award. Acclaim. 3 HITS no Album OWT


    Slow and Steady wins the race. Ask Lizzo

    • Clarks0oñ January 28, 2020

      “Next up is normani ”

      Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100: #16(new) Diamonds, @theestallion & @Normani.

      January is over ,normani hasn’t charted an song since 2020 started.

      • Only Facts January 28, 2020

        And Canola hasn’t had a solo top 40 hit since 2018. Your point? We’re 1 month into 2020. Canola is 6 singles deep on this flop album.

      • Clarks0oñ January 28, 2020

        And normani has never had a solo top ten hit EVER in her life.

        This bìtch doesnt even have a solo top 30 hit to begin with after all the hype and shout outs.

        This bìtch doesnt even have a top 5.

        Normani highest charting song is dancing with a stranger and it peaked at number 7.
        Never be the same outpeaked normani’s entire discography


        The last time normani appeared on the chart was in 2019. ??

        Meanwhile , Camila has 3 whole songs on the chart right now.

        Camila Cabello on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart this week:

        #30(-6) Señorita

        #40(+4) My Oh My **NEW PEAK**

        #56(=) South of the Border

        Cry about it . RAT.

        And u people said normani was gonna end Camila in 2020. I have to laugh.
        The delusion.

      • Cûûmila Cebolla January 29, 2020

        Camela already ended herself by being a racist w***** ?‍♂️

    • Gurlbye January 29, 2020

      What is Normani? Who?

  11. Beyonce knows January 28, 2020

    When u don’t include the Queen Nicki then it’s gone cost ya

  12. Divab January 28, 2020

    What come what may, since Grammys I believe when even Adele scold the Grammys for their snub of Beyoncé and I will say Rihanna and Taylor Swift the Grammys is a no no no even Diddy say it right the Grammys is sh**t now

  13. sss January 28, 2020

    the grammys and others need to understand the world wants talent they might be popping cause that’s what radio wants but its not what the world wants

  14. eric January 28, 2020

    People are tired of the same ol’ same ol’. It’s mostly the same nominees and same typical performances year after year. I was moved by none of it.

  15. Cûûmila Cebolla January 28, 2020

    That’s what happens when you let Camela Cebolla perform on your show ?‍♂️

  16. Tay January 29, 2020

    What did they expect, Kobe passed

  17. Sehaira O Williams January 29, 2020

    Nicki don’t have a Grammy but cardi does that’s not right and the Barb’s aint watching Nicki the female Micheal Jackson when it come to rap cardi b is mili vanily or whatever they name is the Grammy don’t support black people

  18. Rashad January 29, 2020

    No Bey, Taylor, Madonna, Riri, Bieber, Timberlake, Bruno, Gaga, Adele, Mariah, Drake or X-Tina. The only big A-list stars were Ariana and Usher doing a wack tribute. It was a boring year for music that was nominated
