Which muSicians got snubbed?
Miley Cyrus’ valentine to the ‘80s, “Plastic Hearts,” boasted cameos from Steve Nicks, Joan Jett, Billy Idol and current pop whiz Dua Lipa. But despite a best pop vocal album Grammy nomination in 2015 for “Bangerz” (she lost to Sam Smith’s “In the Lonely Hour”), her seventh studio album received zero recognition.
Machine Gun KellyGrammy love also went unrecognized for his fifth studio record. “Tickets to My Downfall,”He was a pop-punkster who spawned rock hits. “Bloody Valentine”And “My Ex’s Best Friend.”
BTS can, however, make history by becoming the first K-pop group ever to win a Grammy. But they only have one chance. “Butter”A lone nomination was received for the best pop duo/group performance.
Who will host the Grammys this year?
Trevor Noah returns for an encore stint, though he’ll have a more traditional show to steer compared to last year’s 2021 hybrid event at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Comedy Central’s Emmy Award-winning host “The Daily Show” proved himself a breezy emcee last year, bopping between the nominees outside and the performers inside.
Noah will still have an award show set up as his playground, even though the scene may be different.
Given Noah’s Kanye West’s social media disputeViewers should be able to hear any sarcastic commentary.
