2016 Grammy Nominations


The Grammy’s are a very controversial time of year, everyone thinks it is a popularity contest, which is why the likes of OneDirection and Justin Bieber haven’t been nominated.

This year’s Grammy’s showcases some of my favorite talents including Tori Kelly and James Bay nominated for Best New Artist. Kendrick Lamar bringing in a handful of nominations including album of the year, and the biggest song of the year, Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars funky collab, ‘Uptown Funk’, being nominated for record of the year.

I see a lot of talent among this list and I’m happy that a lot of them were showcased properly and are now being rewarded for their efforts!
