Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato Snubbed by Grammys — Fans Outraged
Nominations for the upcoming 60th Annual Grammy Awards were released on Tuesday …with a glaring omission, or so it seemed to some: Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato did not receive a single nod from the Recording Academy. Although many celebrated the cultural diversity of the nominees across categories, including Latin artists Cardi B, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, fans of Gomez and Lovato felt the sting of the Grammy snub.
The superstars’ supporters shared their wrath on social media immediately following the announcement, some even tagged the Recording Academy. “Nobody deserved a Grammy nomination more than Demi,” one follower wrote. A Gomez devotee tweeted: “I really thought that Selena was going to get her grammy nomination like It Ain’t Me was HUGE it was the biggest dance track of the year.”
Here are more spicy reactions from disappointed fans:
Neither of the former Disney stars have commented on the Grammys’ nominations. Lovato is currently promoting the upcoming release of her music video for the title track off her album “Tell Me You Love Me,” while Gomez continues to climb the charts with her Marshmello collab, “Wolves.”
The Recording Academy didn’t just take heat from Selenators and Lovatics. Loyalists of Ed Sheeran felt that although he got nods for Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album, he deserved nominations in major categories like Record, Song, or Album of the Year.
The 60th Grammy Awards will take place at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on Sunday Jan. 28. The telecast will be broadcast live (7:30 p.m. ET) on CBS.
