The Scammys are a scam

The grammys are an award presented by the Recording Academy to recognize achievements in the music industry. The trophy depicts a gilded gramophone. The annual presentation ceremony features performances by prominent artists, and the presentation of those awards that have a more popular interest. The grammys are basically like the Oscars. It showcases the music that were big during the years on the billboard and which songs were bop and transformational through pop culture. Back When I was a kid the grammys were something that was mostly separated by everyone around the pop culture world. With stunning red dresses entering in the events and even musical artists that were pretty big in that decade who really defined that event during the music industry. As you may know that the grammys are a Top notched award show that rewards peoples for their breakthrough in the music industry however there artist that deserved a grammy and never received it. As you can see the Grammys are very biased and often corrupt in deciding who should get a grammy. Exhibit A Katy Perry has made numerous hits throughout her records especially in the Era of the 2010 and 2009. Teenage Dream was one of the Albums that shaped the 2010s with Perry scoring five Billboard Hot 100 number one singles from Teenage Dream, making her the second artist in the chart's 53-year history to amass five number-one singles from one album over its first release after Michael Jackson achieved the feat with his 1987 album Bad. Katy Perry had been nominated 13 times over the last 10 years, but current "American Idol" judge, Katy Perry, still doesn't have a Grammy award to adorn her impact in the music industry.

Nicki Minaj is another great example of an artist who has been snubbed. During 2010 she changed the music industry by her album called Pink Friday with songs like moment for life, your love and super bass which were pretty big at the time. You would think that after that she would have at least won a grammy like at least once. Unfortunately Nicki Minaj has been nominated 10 times but did not win her categories. Which is odd considering she gave us a lot of massive hits throughout the decades. Another artist who should've received a grammy was Sia. She made the whole world stop with her song Chandelier and Elastic and massed 2.2B billion views and Elastic heart was 1.1B views. She has been nominated 9 times but has never received a grammy through her songs which is very odd considering her songs were groundbreaking throughout 2014. Another person that should've definitely won a grammy this year is The Weekend and his album called after hours. After Hours was the most streamed album this year with songs continuing to chart Billboard hot 100 in the charts continuously. His songs were often talked about. It was shocking that the grammys never gave him a grammy from (album of the year) Or the song of the year.

It's clear that the grammys have a huge disconnect to its public even in categories like rap, Tupac and Snoop Dogg has never won a grammy and even Ice Cube. This says a lot about the grammy committee as run by white old men who know nothing in the public audience general on who deserved to get the grammy. Artists who thoroughly deserved it in their year are often left under the dark or have been blackballed by Ken Eulrich (The Grammy Director) Ariana Grande should have won the AOTY in 2019 with Thank you, Next and sadly no nomination she has been put into she has won. She has won a grammy before but definitely deserved a lot better. BTS also made major headlines in Billboard hot 100 and yet they didn't win a Grammy either which to me is a very concerning.
