Ungodly is just one of many choice words Chloe x Halle fans are using to describe the duo’s unceremonious shut out at the 2021 GRAMMYs.
After scoring their highest charting efforts on the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 respectively with their sophomore album, 2020’s ‘Ungodly Hour,’ and its lead single, ‘Do It,’ the sister act expectedly earned multiple nominations at the show’s 63rd annual edition.
What wasn’t expected was that they’d be going home empty-handed before the show even started.
Angry fans took Chloe x Halle’s name to trending status on Twitter Sunday night (March 14) after learning the Parkwood pair hadn’t won a single trophy.
Nominated in three categories – Best R&B Song, Best Traditional R&B Performance, and Best Progressive R&B Album – the trio of trophies all went to other acts. As those awards were handed out during the GRAMMY pre-show, this means there is no chance Chloe x Halle would be seen accepting a golden grammophone during the televised portion of the ceremony.
Disgusted by the losses, their fans – alongside angry BTS supporters – took to Twitter in droves to voice their disapproval.
