While award ceremonies like the Oscars and the Tonys had to postpone their eligibility windows and ceremonies due to pandemic complications, the Grammys move right on time on December 31. January 2021 ahead. Not only that, the year is going to be pretty normal for the Recording Academy. There is some controversy over category naming. The academy is still having problems with the president. Taylor Swift is here.
The biggest question could be what the ceremony looks like as an event. Some music award shows are successfully removed entirely while others ride along with personal indoor shows in a pandemic. Last week SportsBettingDime. com had the chances for a personal show with reduced capacity. People bet on it! But here at Vulture we stick to what we know best: the nominations. After beating the Big Four categories last year by Billie Eilish, don’t expect anything close this time around – the general categories feel stacked up like always this year and are ripe for some snubs and surprises. Keep in mind that the Recording Academy postponed the admissions window last year so that the upcoming ceremony will recognize music that will be played from Jan.. September 2019 to 31. August 2020. This means that current releases like the positions of Ariana Grande have to wait another year – as well as one of the biggest songs of the year, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallions « WAP », which Cardi is waiting for with an as yet unreleased new album. Here are our predictions for the 2021 Grammy Awards. Look at the 24. Check back November 11th for the full list of nominations.
About half of these slots are used for albums that just feel too big to fail. There’s Weeknd’s After Hours, a synth-pop odyssey that produced one of the biggest hits of the year. There’s Lady Gaga’s Chromatica, her return to a form the Grammys loved her for, from The Fame to Born This Way. There’s Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia, a second effort that confirms the academy’s vote of confidence in handing over their best new artist in 2019. And there is Taylor Swift’s Folklore, the most famous album in years by an artist who once chose the general categories. If she ever decisively reclaimed that distinction, now is the time. As the group’s only first-time nominee, Lipa could miss the cut – but at the same time, a previous nomination in that category isn’t a guaranteed ticket back, something Post Malone could learn this year with more competition than the 2019 field when he was last nominated for AOTY. Still, consider Hollywood’s Bleeding the most likely pop record to sneak into, with bigger barriers to Roddy Ricch’s Please Excuse Me for Asisocial (he’s hoping for a hit), Chloe x Halles Ungodly Hour (just about every other likely candidate listed above) ten) and Harry Styles’ Fine Line (it would be one of his very first nominations).
It looks different with previous winners. Two-time trophy holder Bob Dylan should reappear with Rough and Rowdy Ways, which deserves comparisons to his 1998 winner Time Out of Mind. The Chicks took the 2007 award for the long way home. Her long-awaited follow-up, Gaslighter, seems poised for another nomination, between her new partnership with category favorite Jack Antonoff and a possible renewed desire to tie her to the country’s establishment she shunned in the late 2000s. Previous nominees Brittany Howard (with Alabama Shakes, 2016) and the Highwomen (member Brandi Carlile, 2019) also return with Jaime and The Highwomen as Dark Horse contenders. Expect a nomination for a more reluctant Grammy favorite: Fiona Apple, who has won genre nominations for her last four albums. She is ready for her return to the general categories, 23 years after being nominated for Best New Artist, with Fetch the Bolt Cutters, her great, critically acclaimed, year-long return. If it’s nominated, it goes to great credit to the new eight slots category, which first made AOTY nominations last year for indie peers Lana Del Rey, Bon Iver and Vampire Weekend.
It would be a blatant mistake for the Academy not to honor at least one of Mac Miller’s posthumous rap albums of the year, Pop Smoke and Juice WRLD. At the same time, it’s hard to see them honor several of these records with so much living talent. Miller is the group’s only past contestant, but he never cracked the general categories, and Circles wasn’t as big a hit as the other two. Legends Never Die were chartered like a monster, but it’s hard to see such a quick turnaround at Juice WRLD after its two previous albums didn’t receive any nominations. So our money goes to Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon, a large, cross-border rap record with campaign help from producer 50 Cent and Pop Smoke’s star manager Steven Victor.
The charts dictate the year’s record that feels most solid among the big four. Expect easy nominations for the unstoppable « Blinding Lights » from Weeknd, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s hit « Rain on Me » and Dua Lipa’s early quarantine anthem, « Don’t Start Now, » which will be carried over from album of the year. Regardless of whether he breaks into AOTY again, Post Malone should appear here on « Circles », one of his best songs. Roddy Ricch’s « The Box » was the biggest chart hit of the year and shouldn’t have a problem getting a nod. (It will be a more difficult path for his other longstanding No.. Do. 1, « Rockstar » with DaBaby. ) Megan Thee Stallion hits new heights at the perfect time for the Grammys. So expect her first No.. 1, as well as the « Savage » that Beyoncé has raised. After failing to split her record and Song of the Year entries last year, Taylor Swift enters “Cardigan” in both categories, one of the more subdued offers in folklore – which leads to an uphill battle here, but it does Ultimately it should end in their favor given the sonic shift in folklore. However, other lyric-driven songs like « Shameika » by Fiona Apple, « The Bones » by Maren Morris and « Adore You » by Harry Styles could have more problems. If someone else can do it, bet on a Grammy favorite like Billie Eilish (« Anything I Wanted ») or H. . E.. . R.. . (« I can not breath »). The surest final choice, however, is another hit: we will choose Doja Cats « Say So ». Yes it would be dr. . Luke’s first Grammy nomination since his litigation with Kesha, but the Academy hasn’t stopped nominating other alleged culprits like Chris Brown, and Luke’s contributions to the song (he produced it under a pseudonym) didn’t stop him from reaching No.. 1.
About half of the category should be taken from the record for the year: « Blinding lights », « Don’t start now » and « Rain on me » will have no problems. « Cardigan » has a better chance of appearing in Song of the Year, where Swift was a stronger competitor. (On the flip side, established rappers tend to do better than new ones in this category, making nominations more of a challenge for « Savage » and « The Box ». ”) The songwriting category tends to be more genre-flexible. So expect nominations for Maren Morris’ country pop banger “The Bones” and Fiona Apple’s Bolt Cutters entry “Shameika. Brandi Carlile has received SOTY nominations for two years in a row for her own song « The Joke » and Tanya Tucker’s « Bring My Flowers Now », which turns the highwomen’s « Redesigning Women » into a dark horse – especially if they get that nomination for receives the key album. And if you really want to talk about the left field, Bob Dylan has never been nominated in that category. If anything could drive him over the edge, it would be his 17-minute epic « Murder Most Foul ». At least one song inspired by this year’s protests against Black Lives Matter should also receive a nomination for writing, and as great as it would be if that category were for a rap song like Lil Baby’s « The Bigger Picture, » expect « I Can ». t Breathe ”from the multi-year candidate H. . E.. . R.. . to be the Academy’s pick after her first SOTY nomination last year.
Last year newcomers like Billie Eilish and Lizzo topped the table with nominations in all four general categories. No artist is set up to perform like this this year, but expect nominations for all of the new artists we picked above. Megan Thee Stallion reached at the right time with two No.. 1 hits this year and buzz from their new album Good News (only competing in 2022, together with their Cardi B collaboration “WAP”); Doja Cat also received a No.. 1, and would be a safer choice here, where Dr. . Luke wouldn’t share the trophy. Pop Smoke would be an unprecedented posthumous contestant in this forward-looking category, but could also benefit from the split of tickets when voting for Album of the Year. Best New Artist previously caught heat by recognizing established musicians like Bon Iver and Chance the Rapper. Phoebe Bridgers could continue that trend this year and be recognized for her second solo album (fourth Boygenius and Better Oblivion Community Center). . The category could also give the indie kids something to celebrate and nominate pop crossover Rina Sawayama, who is nearing an even bigger breakthrough. Speaking of realizing things too late, this could be the year K-pop breaks into the Big Four and Blackpink makes a debut and collaborates with Selena Gomez and Cardi B – but given the academy’s tepid history across the board K-pop we don’t bet on it. We’re going to look at some of the genre prizes to fill in the last few spots: Summer Walker, who was named Best New Artist by Soul Train on her record breaking debut Over It, and Morgan Wallen, who pulled by his canceled Saturday Night Live performance to win the best new artist at the CMA Awards. With the particularly strong harvest of new country stars this year, we’ll play a second here. And as much as we personally draw for Mickey Guyton and Jimmie Allen, it’s Gabby Barrett who has a pop cosign of Charlie Puth and is on a slow climb to her first No.. Located. 1 song.
