But, while jaws dropped to see Tayor Swift, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, BTS, and more also mentioned alongside those hitmakers, some fan groups are steam pressed their favorites were placed in interesting categories or totally shut out.

    Lol this list of noms shows how underwhelming music was in general this year.

    Even the “misses” who didn’t get a nom. I’m never bothered as previous years. There was no ground breaking albums or songs. It’s giving TikTok awards.
