TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
- A lot of folks will think it’s an upset if anyone but Megan winsBest New Artist. Even if it’s Doja Cat. Actually, especially if it’s Doja Cat.
- Pop Smoke posthumously won Best New Artist at theBET Hip-Hop Awards last month.
- Who cares about the awards -- I just want to see the performances.
- Our odds of getting to see Beyonce and Megan take the stage together just increased exponentially.
- Megan actually appeared on the livestream, helping to announce some of the nominations.
- There are a lot of emerging artists in the mix this year. Does this mean theGrammysare starting to get with the times?
- I don't care who is nominated -- it's all about who actually wins.
