The nominations for the 2023 Grammys have been announced. The 65th annual awards ceremony will take place on February 5 in Los Angeles. While there were many obvious names on the list including Harry Styles, Kendrick Lamar, and the like, a few mentions came as a surprise for fans. While Beyoncé and Adele ruled the Grammy Awards nominations this year, there were even more significant snubs this year that disappointed fans.
The singer has had a great year in music. His new album The Lockdown Sessions in collaboration with artists like Lil Nas X and Stevie Nicks was a huge hit. His song with Britney Spears’ titled Hold Me Closer was also a successful launch. However, his efforts were not acknowledged.
All the other drama kept aside, Ye deserved at least a nomination for his productivity. But, it looks like his antisemitic comments, his controversial racist rants and the drama involving Kim Kardashian made the Recording Academy voters decide otherwise.
Underwood has won eight Grammys so far but was ignored for her work this year. Her ninth studio album titled Denim & Rhinestones was a huge success. Even her single Ghost Story deserved to bag a nomination.
Sheeran released some of the most exceptional songs of his career this year but was snubbed real bad. While he has been nominated for the best pop duo/group performance with Camila Cabello for Bam Bam, the success of his fifth studio album titled Equals was clearly overlooked.
Holy Fv– was one of the wildest albums of the year and should have gained nominations. All the 16 songs on the album were showered with love from the fans, but could not find a place at the Grammys.
Minaj urged the Recording Academy to consider her latest hit, which samples Rick James’ Super Freak, as pop. She wanted her work to be recognized in the rap category. Her complaint was not addressed.
Blackpink recently became the first female K-pop group to land a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. Their song Born Pink was assumed to be their entry ticket to the Grammys 2023 nominations. However, their efforts were disregarded as they got zero nominations.
