Top 10 Things the 2016 Grammys Got Wrong
The Top Ten
I believe that "To Pimp a Butterfly" will go down in music history. Nobody will care about "1989" in a couple years. - 2234
Considering 1989 didn't have as much cultural impact, I would say that this deserved to win. - SwagFlicks
1989 did not deserve this. TPaB did. The only Big 4 category Taylor should've won is Song of the Year (you have to admit Blank Space was amazing).
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.
THANK YOU! I don't hate Meghan, but I HATE her songs! Especially All About That Bass!
I don't mean to be a hater... but WHY? WHY HER?! - 2234
Even JB is better than this piece of crap singer. - GrapeJuiceK
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
Would be mopping Walmart if he didn't look like a pirate. Nonce - Puga
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
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
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
And this is a bad thing?!
Eh, I don't really like Kanye. Some of his stuff is good and he's a great producer especially on MDTF but I can't really stand most of his stuff and he really didn't make much that year.
Some of the songs he released were good, others not so much. But there were definitely some songs that should have at least got nominations - 2234
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
She truly deserves it but I think there is more to choose from. Like Madonna, Cher and etc. but since Lady Gaga has him as her inspiration, it's gladly good for her to make the tribute. - kontrahinsunu
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.
Prince wasn't nominated or anything for his newly released work. It's as if the Grammys completely forget about people sometimes... - 2234
He had more success in 2016 - venomouskillingmachine
She's talented and unique, and was another person the Grammys seemed to forget about. - 2234
No she shouldn't, and I am glad she didn't, I am sick of her winning too much when there are better artists.
Absolutely. I despise pop music for the most part but her album was amazing and I loved it.
And then Phenomenal would me nominated - Hotheart123
There's nothing wrong with those genres. I listen to tons of metal but also love a lot of hip hop. Kendricks album that year was incredible. Don't dismiss entire genres even if you don't personally like them. I don't like country or pop but there is still great music in both genres, it's just not for me.
Exactly. The Grammy awards only care about bad music - bobbythebrony
Kendrick Lamars album only won because it's more popular. As it did have some good songs, alright was really annoying and repetitive. If I wanted to listen to someone say "alright" a bunch of times I would've listen to Andre 3000. Compton was dr. Dre's last album, it should've won something. That was the best possible way an artists could have done a finally.
It wasn't even a Rock song
