Top 10 Things the 2016 Grammys Got Wrong

2234

The Top TenXW

1"To Pimp a Butterfly" should have won album of the year

Considering 1989 didn't have as much cultural impact, I would say that this deserved to win. - SwagFlicks

I believe that "To Pimp a Butterfly" will go down in music history. Nobody will care about "1989" in a couple years. - 2234

Wow, you mean the Grammys got something wrong? Never in my life! - ArchAces

2Anyone but Meghan Trainor should have won best new artist

She is sexist toward women. Dear future husband is an incredibly vile disgusting song which is not the problem, I love evil music. The problem is in the framing. Meghan frames her evil, abusiveness and sexism and cute and happy which is terrible. Also the bigger problem, he music sounds awful. It's okay if you like her but I simply do not get her appeal at all.

ANYONE. ANYONE. Normally, I think pop singers like Trainor get too much hate, but I have to say that she is the worst solo singer working in the industry right now. - WonkeyDude98

THANK YOU! I don't hate Meghan, but I HATE her songs! Especially All About That Bass!

3Fetty Wap should have been nominated for best new artist

It's really shocking that Fetty Wap wasn't even nominated, after all of the success he had throughout 2015. - 2234

Yeah. Given Alessia Cara wasn't very relevant at the time, Fetty Wap should have been nominated. - WonkeyDude98

4"Thinking Out Loud" shouldn't have won song of the year

Alright would have easily one. This song I me boring and poorly written.

It's not that bad of a song, but there are so many that are better. Out of the nominations, Alright should have won. - 2234

5"Girl Crush" never should have been such a big deal

I get it. It's a big thing. Girls love girls sometimes, everyone, get used to it. There's nothing special about this song. - 2234

6Nicki Minaj should not have been nominated
7"Hotline Bling" should have been recognized

This song is actually sexist. There is no argument for that. It's okay if you like the song and I get why people do but this song just annoys and bores me.

I understand that the song was released only a small amount of time before the Grammys, but it was already a big enough deal to be recognized. - 2234

8Taylor Swift should have won all 7 of her categories

No she shouldn't, and I am glad she didn't, I am sick of her winning too much when there are better artists.

9Carly Rae Jepsen should have been recognized

Absolutely. I despise pop music for the most part but her album was amazing and I loved it.

10Jamie XX's "In Colour" should have have won Electronic Album of the Year & be nominated for Album of the Year.

The Contenders

11Lady GaGa shouldn't have been the one to do the David Bowie tribute

I think she was an artist who was obviously very influenced by his work, so I'm just appreciating it for what it is: a tribute to David Bowie. - keycha1n

Okay, okay, listen. I have no disrespect to Lady GaGa. I actually think she did pretty good on her tribute, and I think she is very talented. However, I feel like here are some people who could have done way better David Bowie tributes. Maybe an old-timer could have done it, like Stevie Wonder... Wouldn't that have felt more genuine? - 2234

Actually, Lady Gaga is a very good singer and since David was one of her influences, she deserved it. - Swellow

12Taylor Swift should have performed twice
13CHVRCHES should have been recognized.
14More awards should be presented during the telecast
15There should have been a Metal Album of The Year category.

I think they used to have it. I don't know why they removed it. I think ghost should have won it if they had it.

16Prince's album was snubbed

Prince wasn't nominated or anything for his newly released work. It's as if the Grammys completely forget about people sometimes... - 2234

17The Weeknd should not have won anything
18Owl City should have been recognized
19Cats should have been there
20Joey Bada$$ should have been recognized.
