They are relying heavily this year on BTS's fans to pull up attendance records, and then moved the only category that they deigned to give BTS a nomination in (Pop Duo) to the preshow, along with Rap (POC nominees) and R&B (POC nominees) Forbes put out an article last year with a closing line that I think applies to artists like The Weeknd, as well as BTS: "As BTS continues smashing records and the Grammys continue to lose relevance, who really needs who?"

Started with the beatles...when girls used to faint and scream at the sight of them people used to dislike it. Now that its stopped, suddenly people realized that the beatles are amazing. Backstreet boys, 1D, bts....if you are hating on them or dismissing their music just because teenage girls like them then you're wrong for not even giving them a chance. Give it a chance. Its not just a bunch of pretty boys singing. I realized that a little late but I'm glad I did.

@jayyone The difference between BTS's artistic era and beatles artistic era, is that the beatles practically redefined rock and western music. Sgt Peppers created the first concept album. Revolver and Rubber Soul proved to the industry that music doesn't need to be explicitly commercialized to be successful. The white album brought sonic experimentation into the spotlight for the first time. All through rubber soul -> abbey road, they brought the sounds of psychedelia, acid rock, indian intrumentation, novel production techniques etc to the forefront of rock. Early rock sounds primitive in comparision to the rock we got after the beatles popularized these trends. And these trends reverberated throughout the western music world. BTS' artistic era doesn't match what the beatles did. Their music might be good, but not revolutionary. The beatles had a huge fanbase with teens because they made, in retrospect, mediocre pop music. The beatles aren't respected today because of Beatles for Sale, but for Sgt. Peppers or Abbey Road. And I don't even like the beatles that much.

The Beatles were a cultural phenomenon like The Simpsons in the 90s or Harry Potter in the 2000s. They were instantly widely popular and cool after spending ten years learning their craft before fame. Teen girls actually ruined many of their live shows by screeching incessantly ruining the performances for other people. One Direction were manufactured to be successful by Simon Cowell and his corporation and a huge part of why they were chosen was because they were good looking to appeal to teenage girls.

I kinda wish we had the grammys every year... but with no awards. Like a night with the biggest music celebrities and some super stellar epic performances. A celebration of music. And that's it. Maybe like a good worthy charity fundraiser. Like the met gala but for music instead of fashion. All the awards do is piss people of and celebrate the establishment.

@Auan's Camera I don't feel like she "destroyed" her career, more like she faced so much success too early on that she kinda got confused as to what's next. Add her messy divorce and you get a nervous breakdown, simultaneously anxious about wanting not to let the public down, carrying the expectations placed upon her success, emotionally grieving the betrayal of a loved one, and the physical fatigue from her tour that went waaaay too long. She stumbled and sadly her manic pixie hair was more than enough for the public to brand her as already overstaying her welcome. Her new look was vilified as trend chasing, her new sound was dismissed as trying to stay relevant despite it being good, and she was labelled crazy. Even her record label abandoned her, look at how they handled her latest album. It's just a sad tale of rising so high, so quickly, that she failed to land properly in the end.

I'm a bts fan and it's heavily known in the fandom that bts is used for views and ratings. Grammys already has problems as this video points out, don't get me started on asian representation and the latin grammy awards. But as a bts fan and a historian, bts won't win the award bc the grammys have never given an award to boybands the case seen with backstreet boys. Mots7 deserved a nom, not dynamite.

As a Canadian, I see the Grammy’s as an “American” music award. I know the AMAs are different, but a Canadian artist winning a Grammy just means that artist has successfully been assimilated into the US

@Auan's Camera I remember JB getting a lot of anti-Canadian comments when I was in high school, I don’t remember as much for Alessia. I don’t remember Alessia getting pushed as much as JB or The Weeknd, and she performed at the Grey Cup a few years ago so I thought she still lived in Canada which would have saved her some harassment. I wouldn’t be surprised if The Weeknd and Shawn Mendes got it similar to Avril and Drake. The band that I was referring to in my second comment was Die Mannequin, but that’s a little different. When Care started her band she created a private label to retain ownership of her music and art. Any label that she worked with for distribution or marketing wouldn’t make as much money off her as someone they signed to an album deal. There was probably less insensitive for the label to promote the band because of that.

@Lisa Cox Canadians can be somewhat protective of our musicians and actors, and I think part of that is because of the population size differences and the cultural influence from the US. We have an internalized perception of ourselves as a small fish swimming against the current. A lot of our accomplishments; from music, arts, sports, and medicine, end up moving to the US or being thought to have come from the US because it’s easier to make money. Even some businesses can have an easier time working with US customers rather than across provincial boarders. A common criticism from young or immature fans is that moving to the US to pursue larger opportunities is a social equivalent to denouncing their Canadian citizenship. I think this is a dumb criticism, and most people grow out of it by the time they graduate high school, but it does affect artists mentally and emotionally. We don’t criticize other business or classically trained musicians in the same way. I knew a band years ago that was starting to see some success and had to make a decision about whether or not to pursue US audiences and the chance of a more stable career. They talked about how the label wasn’t going to support them internationally unless they moved to the States, but that would mean a social perception of abandoning their home. The band stayed in Canada and broke up a few years later because of internal struggles and a lack of external support. **EDIT: just to clarify after reading this again, I see the Grammys as an American award similar to how a Juno is a Canadian award or Victoires is a France music award. I encourage artists to pursue different audience or move to a different country if that’s what they want to do. My criticism of US assimilation is that Canadian artists are pushed to move to the States to receive support from their label and the industry. It’s expensive and time consuming to get artist visas to work and perform in the States, so most small or independent artists aren’t able to it on their own.

so the way the oscars treat animation is how the grammys treat everything, noted
Blapis-Blazuli Yıl önce
@Shina Omisanya They do, it's just that there are several things wrong with it. For one, animation has as many varied genres as live-action, so just having all animated films be shoved into a single category is ridiculous (Heavy Metal and Disney's Fox and the Hound are both animated, but their content is extremely different) and if you tried doing that with live-action people would think you were out of your mind. For another, it has the outdated mindset that animation is only for children and/or not as legitimate an art form as live-action, which is also not true and something that has been discussed in better detail by people like Brad Bird (director of Ratatouille, Iron Giant, and both Incredibles films) and Owen Dennis (creator of Infinity Train). Also, as someone else said, when it comes to the winners it's almost always either a Pixar or Disney film, even when said win is seen as undeserved compared to its fellow nominees (to use this year as an example: a lot of people weren't happy that Pixar's Soul won over indie studio Cartoon Saloon's Wolfwalkers). It's argued that when it comes to choosing which one wins they only really care about how pretty the animation looks and/or which studio it comes from, to the point where something has to be mind-blowing in order to beat them (hence why Shrek and Into the Spider-Verse's wins in their respective years were huge). TL;DR: The Oscars *do* have an animation category, but it's a fucking joke and very frustrating for animation fans, so not a bad comparison to the Grammys (and, let's be honest, the Golden Globes) apparently.

The thing many, even people of that Race don't know, is the name of that race is The Iberian (Chicano) Race.

Spanish/Spaniard & Mexican are Nationalities, not Races, like many mistakenly believe. There is a method to this madness of words.

That's just a hyperbole slogan for advertisement. Grammys are an American award show and Americans speak English. Lots of countries have their own award shows for their own music award shows where they don't really pay much attention to music outside or just have a single international category. Grammys get a lot of attention because it was one of the earliest music award shows created on its scale, America is a superpower and is very rich, and English is the global lingua franca.

While it is fun to see who will win a Grammy, ultimately it doesn't affect how I view an artist's work. When I listen to a piece of music, I don't think "Wow this is good cause it won a Grammy," I think it's good because it's good music.

I think the Grammys are doomed from the beginning. 1. It was built on a foundation of exclusivity with genres and white male artists being "better" 2. Music has no (maybe not yet) standardized scale/rating that encompasses the cultural impact, popularity and how well written it is 2.a. Even if there was a scale, music will always be a personal experience so everything's subjective anyway 3. Trends move faster than the crusty boomers in charge can see it. They probably still think BTS means behind the scenes

@loveutill theendoftimes I wouldn't necessarily say Bad was robbed but MJ winning 7 awards for Thriller was an isolated incident. That album was far too big to be ignored and that's part of the problem when it comes to black artists getting their due... It's not enough for their work to be good or even great, it has to be exceptional in order to have a chance of winning and even then, they may not even get a proper nomination. Look at Off The Wall: an exceptional LP, widely considered so to this day, it was the highest selling album by a black artist pre-Thriller as well as being the first album from ANY artist to have 4 Top 10 hits yet the only thing Mike received that night was the Best R&B Vocal Performance for "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough". One can certainly argue that MJ was robbed that time.

i stopped caring for the Grammys ever since i learned Björk never won anything. it's fun to discuss and make predictions every year but it's so bittersweet with all the issues and bigotry and racism... feels guilty to express interest on the Grammys, like an incentive for them to continue their award show despite all the problems. this year i'll be rooting for BTS because i'm a big fan of theirs and i know how much that'd make them happy and that's about it. The Academy doesn't give me any other reasons to care for real

And like how you showed, the whole artistic yardstick in itself is so subjective, made even worse if the demographic of the people making decisions is a small and select one. That’s why it’s crazy when artists that sell amazingly worldwide, like The Weeknd and BTS that topped IFPI, are snubbed like that. Isn’t there a reason why they’re so popular then? If they don’t fit the artistic metric, then that’s just like what they did to Rock N Roll. Widely popular, but so easily snubbed by that certain group that seems to their subjective opinion is better than everyone else.

after watching this year's grammys -refuse to give poc artists nominations and/or wins they deserve (the weekend, chloe x halle, bts, doja cat, etc) -push mostly poc-nominated awards to the pre-show And end up not giving it to them (chloe x halle, bts, etc) -and using an act to promote before and during the show by teasing an award and a performance "soon" (bts, who were made to believe they would win, and whose fans were made to watch the show til the end by constantly teasing them as the next performers and then giving them a less than 3 minute time slot) i have strong reason to believe there is at least some discrimination but hey, they game beyonce, megan, her, and other black artists awards, so its impossible that they're racist, right?

Until we all collectively stop touting 'grammy winning artist' or 'this artist has x amount of Grammys' as an achievement and a serious career booster...they will matter on some level. The award show is all fake and corrupt for sure...but the industry behind it still values those awards too much. I work in film and if someone works for someone who has an Oscar it really becomes a influential career piece to use. That's a problem.

The big issue with any sort of rewards being given out by the people in the field, is that people are going to reward their friends or people they admire not the actual work. But then who is going to give out the rewards and award people who probably wouldn’t even be nominated in the first place. Knowing albums could be kicked off lists it feels like The Weeknd was probably kicked off any nominations this year for other artists. I am a swiftie yet I find it annoying how she can be nominated and win so many awards while Kendrick Lamar can make three of the best rap albums of all time and get one Grammy for it. That being said him winning the Pulitzer for damn is a higher compliment than any amount of Grammy awards.

But the thing though is that even if they weren't awarding their friends or people they admire, even if they were looking at their actual work, it still wouldn't matter, it would still be an unfair and rigged game because of personal taste. You can deem something to be a masterpiece and there will still be people who won't see it as a masterpiece because of their own personal taste which they have every right to have and is valid, and yet it doesn't mean that the piece is bad or that they are wrong. And what someone else claims to be a masterpiece you might not see it but again, it doesn't mean the thing is bad, you just don't like it and may not even have a specific reason for that, you just don't. And THAT'S the real problem. People are too different in their music range tastes. Someone from the Academy might listen to "Every breath you take" by the Police and dislike it while someone else also from the Academy might like it and bc of that, the song gets at least one vote, which is probably what happened with the song when it won best song many years ago. I'm sure there was at least ONE person in the Academy who was not a fan of the song and to them, it probably didn't deserve to win. That's why I feel like award shows like these shouldn't even exist. It's so hard to pinpoint something being good or bad when what's good and bad is subjective and relevant to the person's thoughts about it. And also, like, what happens when multiple artists have achieved the same thing? Do they all receive the award? I feel like awards like these should be given only for straight up facts. Who's the most streamed ever in the year, you can actually fact check that and compare numbers and give an award to the winner. Achievement for the most collaborations, you can actually fact check that, artist who has the longest song, artists who has the most variety of genres in an album or idk im making shit up lol but my point is it should be shit like that, things that can be literally measured in numbers and not voted on by random ass people.

There being biases in award shows is no secret in any of these award shows (Oscars, Grammys, Golden Globes, etc). Many of the nominees/productions companies/record labels will send “gifts” (monetary things such as expensive jewelry, expensive vacations, etc) to many of the people in the committee to insure a spot in the nomination list, or even to win the award(s) Example here is Harvey Weinstein who “campaigned” for his movies to get in the nomination list, and to even win at the oscars. Many great deserving pieces of fine arts (Music, Flim, etc) don’t get the recognition they deserve because a lot of these awards aren’t always purely based on merit, but [again] “campaigning” (buying “gifts” to the voters in the various academies). One big example being ‘Shakespeare In Love’ winning over ‘Saving Private Ryan’ for best picture: (You can start from around the beginning) trvid.com/video/video-6tihITlPAn4.html (Go about the 6:35 mark) trvid.com/video/video-z4GvecFjLkU.html

You really hit the nail on the head with the weird dissonance between who the Grammys are hyping up and whos actually winning. Speaking as a BTS fan, Armys have long been frustrated with how the boys are always getting interviews, articles, special performances - everything except an actual award (though that might change this year, fingers crossed.

@A "manufactured pop music that they don't even create" - with this one statement you showed that you know absolutely nothing about BTS. Why are you trying to participate in a discussion on a topic of which you are entirely ignorant? Also, success = increased media coverage + awards. This is not a difficult concept to understand, yes? But with grammys they are giving tons of media coverage, but not accompanying it with an award. What does this tell us? They want the views and ratings that accompany BTS, but they don't actually want to acknowledge them as having any worth.

tbh i feel like it's unfair to BTS to constantly chalk up the (limited for their impact) attention their music gets to "the enthusiams of teenage girls" when they have a very diverse fanbase (i'm 26) and make truly incredible music. Also if they were at the whims of bts' fans it wouldn't have taken 4 years of chart domination and an english track (a great joyful song regardless that bts brought a ton of charisma to) for bts to get a single nomination and not even in a main category, they are up against a ton of gatekeeping. I wish you would have reviewed their album BE for example. They're the biggest music act in the world right now (check IFPI) yet don't get the critical attention and acclaim i genuinely think they deserve because of stereotypes like this rooted in misogyny ("boyband ew bad teen girls silly etc") or xenophobia ("kpop ew bad music robots homogenizing takes etc"). idk i just wish ppl would think more thoughtfully about them and really give their music a chance to shine on its own merits. think to yourself if another artist released this who i was more familiar with or had a different image would i think it was better or more valid.

@Hannie Jordan Possibly because most teen boys comment more on Juice wrld's content and not his looks, neither would they disown him if he decided to date, which some people believe gives credibility to his music's popularity. They don't even need Juice Wrld around to keep supporting him (R.I.P.). However, when it comes to Kpop boy groups, in the past, many fans have been huge supporters until they a) started dating and getting married b) got too old c) Went off to mandatory military service, required in South Korea. Time and again, world support has withdrawn from Kpop boy groups for these reasons. This proved the fans really didn't respect the music. Many people fear this might be the case with BTS. There's a reason BTS is hush about anyone they're dating and probably can't share because even they know many fans are only there because of their good looks. At the end of the day, many people have a hard time trusting the fans because many of their comments in music videos begin with "He's so hot" or "He's my fave" or "His looks this era-". Not always "This song is so powerful". And it's left to be seen how many will truly show how much they "respect" their music when they start dating. If you want people to take BTS seriously, the fans have to as a collective, and bring forth more commentary about their music and not their looks across the internet. The streams better continue even if one of them gets married. All of the commentary from fans about the power of their music and lyrics happen as a defense to haters, but not as an initial response. More of that (like in this thread) has to be present across the board and drown out the comments on appearance. I've been into Kpop since 2003 and have seen Kpop artists, even some of my faves like BoA and 2ne1, come and go. Talent had little to do with the world sleeping on them. They just didn't look like a bunch of hot boys.

On one hand, I do feel like men criticize everything women like, even if they are guilty of the same things when it comes to voting systems in other industries (like the movie industry). On the other hand, too many fangirls _are_ obsessed over the boy bands because of their looks and not for their content or talents, especially if we compare a group like BTS and their success to other Kpop groups that don't have members that are "as attractive", but are just as talented and maybe even far more. There are so many truly gifted Kpop female artists that have gotten overlooked like BoA, Jessi, Ailee, and 2ne1 because they don't have the boyband image, but they've been making waves in Kpop so much longer. I am grateful that BTS is bringing Asian representation to the world stage and changing the image of Asian men. However, it is the image of Asian men, once considered less desirable, that's mostly being impacted by their presence. And while many may just respect these boys' music, I think the distrust comes from how some fans have reacted to Kpop boy groups in the past. There have been many incidents of some fans boycotting Kpop boy groups (heck, even Western fans boycott boy groups) once they were found to be dating or married, like EXO Baekhyun when he dated Taeyeon from Girls' Generation. He didn't gain back favor until he dumped her. What will happen to all that fan loyalty when BTS starts dating and getting married? For me, it's left to be seen whether it's the music that's respected or the good looks. Can they grow older and gracefully, with the fans giving that same energy? Because I've seen in South Korea other boy bands fall from grace from even being seen with a woman, showing that they weren't respected for their music. So some don't think anyone should consider their popularity as proof of their musical talent. While I do think the Grammys is heavily racist, I do think that if the Grammys extend their voting, it should be to the world, and hopefully they recognize lesser artists that are talented in South Korea, and even in other nations, and not just because of the strong fandom power. I also think that many BTS fans tend to come down on people who criticize the group, even constructively in any way, causing deep resentment and people not wanting to feed into the energy. It subconsciously turns them off and not want to support them. There does need to be nuanced discussions about some of these fandoms. Regardless, though, the Grammy's should think about the popularity but also in relation to how good they believe the music actually is as well. It will always be subjective though.

The thing about the Oscars though that I’m surprised doesn’t come up more in discussing it is their value as a marketing tool. A low-mid budget adult drama can get a serious boost in public interest and asses in seats from some Oscar wins. Parasite did INSANELY well financially for a movie with 0 English, but also with 0 white people and it cleaning house with the Oscars was absolutely a factor in that. That kind of success hardly ever just comes from word of mouth alone. Same with Moonlight and Nomadland, 2 great, but very hard movies to market to casual filmgoers turned a profit thanks to the attention and interest from the Oscars. It also affects industry trends and who the industry feels is worth investing in. Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscar win in 2013 proved she had star power outside of her blockbuster franchise and she became one of the most bankable and sought after stars in Hollywood for a few years after that (although her more recent project choices kind of knocked her down on the list).

@BetIllBeDamned But that’s different, because it’s a festival and only films that play at that festival are eligible. And they’ve also had their fair share of slip ups. It’d be interesting to compare Best Pictures winners to Palme d’Or winners of the latest decade to see which has the better selections. I think it’d be pretty close. Like, the year Green Book won Best Picture, the Palme d’Oro picked Shoplifters, a superior film, in my opinion. The year the Palme d’Oro went to I, Daniel Blake, the Oscars beat them out with Moonlight.

@Ana Clara Oscar nominations this year are pretty great. Everything indicates Nomadland will take home the big prize. It’s a divisive film, but most critics and a handful of cinephiles agree it’s great, and it’s far from a safe choice like Green Book was.

as Blinding Lights was 2020 biggest single worldwide according to IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry) so was BTS' Map Of The Soul: 7 the biggest album worldwide. what these two have in common? no Grammy nominations. sure Dynamite was nominated as it should have been. it was the 10th biggest single worldwide also according to IFPI, it was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 3 weeks and surprise, surprise it's still charting at the moment. but nominating them in only ONE Pop category which was Best Pop Duo/Group Performance which for years consisted of just collaborations(?!?), then announcing that they will perform at the ceremony which they have always wanted, then moving this category along other categories which were dominated by POC to the preshow which was live on youtube and not on TV, to give the Grammy to a collaboration that everyone forgot about in 2020 and that didn't have that much of an impact in the charts of US or anywhere outside of it TO FINALLY USE BTS' PERFORMANCE TO KEEP 'HOSTAGE' THEIR FANS SO YOU CAN SAVE YOUR RATINGS FOR A THIRD YEAR IN A ROW ??? this was the third year they used BTS' success and fans for clout. and I can assure you as a BTS fan outside of the US I never cared about Grammys, not really, but they wanted to perform there one day and maybe even win one of the awards so of course, I wanted that for them. and yeah now I'm disappointed and pissed and a part of me wants for BTS to never seek validation from the US ever again. they are the biggest Pop act at the moment with or without a Grammy and a part of me wants them to do the same thing as Abel did: to also boycott these western award shows but then I remember what Twitter user @alapadma2 said: "Of course I want BTS to ignore the Grammys like other artists have done. But we need to understand that that's a privilege Western artists have. This is their industry, while BTS are outsiders. The Grammys would love it if an outside, resistive force stopped challenging them." so the other part of me wants for them to break the last glass ceiling because that's what they have been doing for the last years: breaking records and glass ceilings. make themselves visible and taking a chair at the table where it was possible and not where they created a separate table just for them (I'm not forgetting you VMAs don't worry). to conclude I will leave here a quote from a Forbes article "But as BTS continue smashing records and the Grammys continue to lose relevance, who really needs who?"

As someone who’s not really a music guy and is mostly using the Oscars and their issues as a template for interpreting this, I have a question. People often make the same complaints about the Oscars and how the AMPA handles voting and campaigning but a critical component of the Oscars and what I think doesn’t get discussed enough is the market power winning these awards get you. In film, a low to mid budget adult drama can get a serious boost in public interest from the clout an Oscar win gets. Same goes with people’s careers, an Oscar win can make an obscure actor or director a lot more popular and incentivize interest to give them bigger opportunities if the stars align. What I wonder is that does the same value and set of benefits apply for the Music Academy? Do Grammy wins actually incentivize public interest or career stock or are most of the nominees too big and self sustaining to even get anything out of it?

I love Jacob collier, with all my heart, he's the person who got me more into R&B and way more genres. But I'm terrified that he will win. It's not his best album and I'm horrified if he gets forgotten after the awards and is shunned. I love this video and your commentary on all nominations this year. Edit: ppphhhheeewwwww, happy that he won one and I'm happy for Taylor

Being a citizen from a non white non English speaking country I never paid much attention to the Grammys until this year only because bts was nominated. Its because the boys care ,the fans care fully knowing that they don't really need a grammy. I guess they see this as a final frontier to acheiving everything. Even now the lack of a Grammy can fuel them to keep creating lot of good music. Once they get it, I imagine they would be like "what next? We have already achieved world domination and the status of an icon"

Honestly the fact that Sonic Youth, a band who had a long, fruitful career and produced some of the greatest, most groundbreaking and influential rock music ever recorded, was not once even nominated for a Grammy in their entire 30-year-long career proves a lot of the points made here. The Grammys exist to celebrate the status quo of the music industry, shying away from promoting anything threatening to the status quo like Sonic Youth, who influenced the likes of Nirvana and Radiohead.

If there's one thing with the Grammys that I think is better now is the fact that in the past decade they've largely stuck to rewarding big-name artists and big charting hits save for the occasional outlier like Beck and Arcade Fire. It's at least better than rewarding artists past their prime as an equivalent of a lifetime achievement award as they did with Steely Dan, Herbie Hancock, U2, etc.

I think the Grammys should stop branding themselves as "THE music award show" because they clearly don't know what they are doing with that dang committee of their's and they are only picking from songs that are huge in America (and they still pick and choose what THEY want while snubbing POC artistes and if not shoving them into tiny boxes) while ignoring a whole lot of good songs that aren't in English or Spanish

Not sure why anyone expects anything from the Grammys. At least in the Olympics it's pretty cut and clear which person crosses the finish line (though admittedly less clear who twirled the ribbon the best) but when it comes to who acted the hardest or sang the coolest that's a bit less objective.

There's an upper limit to the subjectiveness though? How does a Macklemore's album win over GKMC? It almost does not matter whether one likes Mackemore's album more, it's pretty undeniable that GKMC is the more noteworthy album. No one is gonna remember The Heist in 10 years.

I find it fascinating how the grammys and oscars differ so much. Pretty much nobody respects the grammys. The grammy winners reflect the opinions of absolutely nobody. Not the charts, not critics, not internet weirdos like us. Nobody. The oscars on the other hand don't seem to try and maintain this balancing act between what's popular and what's critically good. Of course, they're not perfect, but they seem to reflect the actual good stuff that comes out each year.

I believe the goal of the Grammy Awards is to get viewers and the actual awards don't matter. It does this by getting famous artists nominated for the night time awards rather than talented artists. It's the daytime nominees that interest the voters because it's friends voting for friends (if you are an outsider you won't get nominated).

eversince someone pointed out that they only nominate really great artist/performers (mostly bipoc) for them to perform hence more people watching and then give the award to those safe bets... its tiring... its a special little club of the elite. what if artists just boycott grammys? i wonder what would happen...
Satine Yıl önce
@user It basically means black, indigenous (Native American), and people of color all in one. Technically black people in this scenario doesn’t really count as a “person of color.” So, if you were to say “poc” when talking about black people, it’s not really correct (not saying black folks aren’t minorities). You would most likely just say black in that situation. Indigenous means Native American. But there have been debates if Native Americans count as poc or if their primary characteristic has to do with political issues (in this case, it has to do with political issues). So if you can’t understand my crusty definition, basically people use bipoc for this reason: - poc is a very very broad term. It’s hard to really tell what you mean when you say poc because it’s not very specific - bipoc is a little more specific because it focuses more on black and indigenous people (because that has often become the main topic of conversation regarding race) I personally don’t use it. I think it sounds too wordy and Twitter-ish. But if there’s a specific situation where that term fits. I would use it. Hope this helps.

@baibiebaibea I agree but don't get your hopes up for nothing, there's a history and legacy behind the Grammys and that's what's allowing the academy to still persist throughout the years even tho it has lost all credibility. Essentially, I stand for artists who don't need a prize like this to get the respect they may need. No artist nowadays needs the recording academy to be deemed a "renowned musician", from Queen, to Bjök, to some may say BTS, or other Korean artists that definitely have it in them to get a Grammy. Nowadays the musicians themselves don't really need that award in my opinion.

the Grammys dont matter but at the same time they're a tradition you keep doing because you've always done it before. I find year end top ten lists from music nerds to be really valuable because I can see what music everyone had in common, and sort through the lists to see what I want to check out. I would've never listened to punisher, perhaps my most listened to album of this year so far, without doing this.

It's certainly always very interesting to see which artists people WISH had been nominated, especially since there are smaller, sonically interesting artists who would benefit from some recognition that they might not get at a Billboard or VMAs ceremony.

Honestly just pisses me off how sexist and even internally mysoginistic the opinion of "fanatic teen girls" is. yes I'll admit they can get a bit too "excited" (which is how media always paints them) but why is that a bad thing? Can't we let people enjoy the things they love? Have you seen what football fans are like? Yet No one constantly ridicules or patronizes them for their taste and passions. The Beatles were dismissed for there large young female fan base, yet they're remembered as some of the greatest musical artists in history. These artists are liked for a reason and it's very disrespectful to dismiss them because of the harmful and sexist stereotypes portrayed onto the fan base. As well as being majorly generalizing to the fan base. (And yes I know that some of these fans take shit way too far, to the extend of stalking and physically harming these artists. And I do not condone that behaviour nor do I class them as real fans). But why is it when women like something it is used against her to ridicule her and even used to emasculate a man if he may share her interests?

@Lucy May Bubble gum pop music is always looked down on by music snobs and critics, plus I think they single out teenage girls because they believe they only like them because they are attractive. There is also a hipster element of hate since it is a stereotype that a lot of girl bands and boy bands are manufactured by the music industry to specifically target teenage girls.

@WOLF STAR I agree with that to an extent, except the Beatles music was still amazing an revolutionary even from the beginning. Despite this, however, because of the mysoginistic and sexist view of the majority of their female fan base, they weren't taken "seriously" by these music critics. Therefore, my question is, why is it when a young girl likes something, she and the artist is belittled and even disregarded in terms of respect for the artistry in question?
WOLF STAR 2 yıl önce
While that's a good argument there's a point people don't get about The Beatles/teenage girl fan base all of you are making. There's a huge flaw with the "teenage girls and Beatlemania" yes that's true because the Beatles when they first started were technically a boy band with very accessible songs and they appealed to teenagers however Then the "Sgt Pepper" album came and they became a very different band with psychedelic music elements and experimentation and that was the point when their appeal became much more relevant to music snobs and critics. They weren't a band for teenage girls anymore. If The Beatles had only released anything pre-Rubber Soul I'm not sure they would be considered what they are now.

what i find a little bit frustrating is how some fans were trying to compare bts to the Beatles (because the beatles were ridiculed for having a largely female fanbase, and now they're cemented as an incredibly talented group) and people are trying to brush that off by saying that the beatles were only heartthrobs in the beginning of their career before having an artistic era where they began being more artistic. bts have BEEN artistic. they constantly challenge the bounds of genre and incorporate incredible word play into their songs. they're amazing at their craft and even if the multiple genres they sing and rap in isn't your style, you can't deny that they love music and know how to make it good. bts aren't just lucky to be famous because of their looks, they're talented, insightful people who continuously push out artistic albums. i don't know what else to say but to advise you to listen to their albums and actually try to understand their lyrics. their most recent album BE focused on the impact of the pandemic on loneliness and desperation. idk but it irks me that some people try to downplay bts like that.

Always remember this, Madonna was ignored by the Grammy's from 1983 up to 1998. Even her most artsy, most personal, and her critically and commercially successful album Like a Prayer in 1989 never gets a nomination. Only in 1999 when Madonna was finally recognized by Grammy's. So the point here is that, you can be a very big superstar in the world, even without a Grammy.
