After the Grammy’s announced their nominees, some fans shared their support on social media
The Grammy Awards announced their highly anticipated list of nominees during November 2019. Almost instantly, fans took to social media, campaigning for the artists they believe deserve the recognition.
“Lana [Del Rey] is the most deserving, she had the best songs, and I think she should win. But I feel like Ariana [Grande] or Billie [Eilish] will win, based on popularity,” said one Twitter user, speaking on Del Rey’s album, Norman F**king Rockwell.
“Now, hear me out, If Lizzo can put ‘Truth Hurts’ on her recent album and make it Grammy eligible, Taylor Swift could submit her re-recordings to the Grammys and get RED the ‘Album of the Year’ it deserved,” wrote another Twitter user.
Other fans mentioned artists who were snubbed at the upcoming award show. That includes the K-pop group, BTS. One Twitter user said, “I don’t even stan BTS, but why aren’t they nominated for a Grammy? Literally the best selling album of the year hasn’t been nominated but all the others are?”
