The Weeknd saved me from one of my darkest times, and to see him not get nominated actually pains me

*THE WAY THE WEEKND SINGLEHANDEDLY CARRIED THE WHOLE YEAR AND NOT EVEN BEING NOMINATED??????*
*UNBELIEVABLE*

So glad you'll check out Future Nostalgia at some point. While they snubbed The Weeknd, Dua definitely deserved all her nominations
aly is snazzy
aly is snazzy:
makes me so sad, you can tell abel put so much effort into everything he did this whole era like this man really did every performance in character and constructed this whole storyline only for yummy to get more recognition..abel is probably so sad right now too😔

The Weeknd gets 0 Grammy Nominations while still having a top 10 song 8 months later ..... He was robbed

"Exile" will definitely win Best Pop Duo/Group performance. The songwriting and composition are superb.

I am trying to not let this get to me, but man. How does Yummy get recognition?! Compared to a single off of After Hours. WOW. It is just hilarious at this point.
Danyel Johnson
Danyel Johnson:
I stopped caring about the Grammys when they blackballed Nicki Minaj... The Weeknd is sooo deserving of Album Of the Year .. like wtf
Akhil joseph
Akhil joseph:
For him not to be even nominated when he is LITERALLY the artist of the year, that shows you how trash the Grammys are. Frank Ocean got snubbed, Kendrick Lamar got snubbed, and now it is the Weeknd.

cheeseyfeet17:
This man literally went for 4 years and worked hard to return this year with After Hours which is album of the year personally, biggest single of the year with Blinding Lights. Amazing music videos with actual storylines & amazing visuals. Amazing live performances that aren’t like every other generic artist. He’s the GOAT and doesn’t get recognition but Yummy does. Absolute trash, we love you Abel and After Hours will continue to be loved in years to come.
Tobacca Jenkins
Tobacca Jenkins:
Crazy how The Weeknd got ZERO nominations when he just won 3 awards from the AMAs 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
Deon Mejri
Deon Mejri:
Lana Del Rey was not nominated when everyone predicted her nomination for best spoken words album. The grammy's have lost their credibility and everyone should boycott watching them on TV
Jordan Andrews
Jordan Andrews:
lets not forget they also snubbed Michael Jacksons bad album as well honestly the grammys are a joke
Tia N
Tia N:
The way I was FLOORED that he wasn't nominated for a damn thing. They literally could've just given Yummy's nomination to Blinding Lights. It's insanity. I am happy for Dua though cuz Future Nostalgia was fire.

Also apparently the difference between record of the year vs song of the year is that record is for the singing/production while song is for the songwriting. I still think that's kind of redundant but I had to look it up.
R1bandz
R1bandz:
Literally the weeknd dropped single of the year and album and didn’t get noticed Grammys are idiots they do not love giving black talent awards
Etienne Smith
Etienne Smith:
I'm so so so disappointed Jon. Mainly for Abel himself. What an artist, what an album, what a year he's had. Wouldn't of been surprised if he'd not won much on the night, because they often pick the wrong ones. BUT TO NOT RECIEVE ANY NOMINATIONS IS A FUCKING CRIME. How on earth can they ignore Blinding Lights alone, let alone the actual album. He's literally DOMINATED this year. It doesn't make any sense at all. Can't begin to imagine what he's thinking this evening. I feel robbed, let alone him and his team.
AyeNeon
AyeNeon:
Mac Miller robbed again. Circles should've been nominated for something.
Abbi Campbell
Abbi Campbell:
Absolute BS that the weeknd didn’t get a single nomination! Also no Don Toliver for new artist?
Artificial Gummies
Artificial Gummies:
I’m genuinely confused as to how Abel didn’t get a single nomination? They had to have just forgotten it was even released
Emr Berlin
Emr Berlin:
I’m a huge TS fan but I can’t even enjoy her nominations because of the The Weeknd snub. This is so wrong I mean even that ringtone album scored 3 nominations!
Nero
Nero:
They didn't give MJ a grammy for Bad in 88.

I couldn't give a shit about the Grammys and neither should Abel. He's leagues better than everyone right now.

This was Abel’s year and the Grammy’s just said “nah” like wtf After Hours is the best album of the 2000s so far imo
Sol Noguera
Sol Noguera:
They nominated Justin with that YUMMY crappy song. You know it’s a scam. He did nothing to deserve. He is mediocre. Abel was robbed. Scooter Braun is not seeing heaven

What makes me happy: Dua finally got many nominations
What makes me angry: The Weeknd didn't even get nomination also Yummy and the album Changes are there

Abel : never need a Grammy , I’m what Grammy needs.
The Weeknd won 2020 hands down.

The Grammy's are just some old people with no taste in music

Dua Lipa deserved! I actually wondered if The Weeknd even submitted his record when I saw this because I refused to believe that they wouldn‘t give him a nomination, like it doesn‘t make sense at all. 💀
Carmen Guerra
Carmen Guerra:
I can't believe that!!
But I'm happy for Dua's Nominations!!
You should react to Future Nostalgia!! It's Amazing 😍
Naiko

HE'S LITERALLY GETTING ROBBED.
Austin S.
Austin S.:
Screw the Grammys no nominations despite having the biggest song of the year or the Album of the year yet somehow YUMMY was nominated?!? Abel was *ROBBED!* Grammys haven’t mattered since Macklemore won over Drake, Kendrick, Jay-Z, and Kanye tbh tho
B. Wells
B. Wells:
The Weeknd was robbed
Alice in Purgatory
Alice in Purgatory:
This is so disrespectful, Abel put so much effort, work and energy on this After Hours era. It's just ridiculous, robbery in his most genuine way.
Natasha Brady
Natasha Brady:
Honestly mad for The Weeknd & MAC MILLER. Pop smoke & Juice WRLD. Grammys are just ridiculous and have the worst taste lol
CIARA LOPEZ
CIARA LOPEZ:
they didn’t even nominate LANA for spoken word album
Daniel Andres CUBIDES RODRIGUEZ
Daniel Andres CUBIDES RODRIGUEZ:
This man gave us a critical and comercial masterpiece and is not even nominated for best R&B album
Scammys, this one is probably the biggest in history

Mac and Abel got absolutely snubbed. I’m genuinely upset over the lack of the nominations. Then again, I shouldn’t really care given the Grammy’s shitty history.
XDee ManXx

They snubbed him bc he chose to perform at the super bowl instead of the Grammys
Kevin Mendez

You’re the man. The Weeknd should see this video. Thanks!

ABEL DOMINATED THE ENTIRE YEAR WITH HIS AFTER HOURS AND YOU'RE YELLING ME HE CAN'T GET AT LEAST ONE FRICKING NOMINEE
ibrahim jahangir
ibrahim jahangir:
Tbf blinding lights was released in 2019, but album of the year??...come on, we know After hours is better than every album they nominated
PhenixNellight
PhenixNellight:
whos the freaking academy who nominates? wtf
Amir
Amir:
Ok lemme get this straight... After Hours was one of the top 5 BIGGEST albums of 2020 and one of the top 3 best albums of the year and don't even get me started on Blinding Lights... literally the BIGGEST song of the year and one of the best songs, received critical acclaim across the general public and critics and it is bound to be one of the top 10 biggest songs OF ALL TIME, after circles by post malone just entered it (according to predictions). And if you think it doesn't deserve it, tell me why tf its STILL in the top 10 on the billboard hot 100 after 40 weeks, a record breaking number and its still going. I cant take grammys seriously
sara
sara:
I'm really happy that Harry and Dua were nominated but like, I was literally expecting to see The Weeknd there!! It's so unfair
jayhepta
jayhepta:
You need to react to Harry Styles "Fine Line" as well. Incredible album.
Yuhh

This is above borderline outrageous HE WOULD HAVE SWEPT THE GRAMMYS!!!
Hooligan XO
Hooligan XO:
Dude.. the Weeknd had given it all, we all know he puts his heart and soul into his albums and this album was on a whole new level, and not even a single song getting nominated in any of the categories is really heartbreaking..
We love you Abel!
Joana Vecilla
Joana Vecilla:
The Weeknd got robbed. Rina Sawayama wasn't even nominated for new artist, also a robbery. Period.
dre27321

The only way this makes sense is if The Weeknd didn’t submit his music to the Grammys
Chris M
Chris M:
The biggest robbery of all human kind.
Tayler Hall
Tayler Hall:
The Grammys have always been a joke, look at astroworld getting snubbed or what about the fact that katy perry and nicki minaj have never won a grammy 👎
La Peaceful Vida
La Peaceful Vida:
I think all the awards are "bought" like Tekashi 69 pointed out that you can buy your #1 spot on the billboards.. I think the music industry and the awards are political and a scam....🙄🙄🙄😞😞😖😖
Ciara Dean
Ciara Dean:
The Recording Academy straight up said, "The Weekend??? Never heard of her"😂 Not even a huge fan of The Weekend but I know what good music sounds like and I know he had a great year! The Scammy’s credibility fades more and more every year when they keep making sus ass decisions. Has to be industry politics with this whole Weekend snub. I’m happy for my girls Chloe and Halle though.

Grammy noms of this year have hurt my music loving heart. The news of Abel not getting even a single nomination ruined my whole day.
TJ Ramsey
TJ Ramsey:
This man (Abel) literally got us through 2020 with this Album. Blinding Lights has been on the radio for a year! His live performances and music videos for his songs have been crazy and have only gotten better! Wtf!
Brad 02K
Brad 02K:

Abel worked incredibly hard on his album, the whole vibe and detail it has, to his performance, storyline, character, and dont even get me started on his vocals.
