Cut to BTS , who, despite being the biggest band in the world right now, only has one Grammy nomination so far. And it's for best recording package. In Esquire's Winter issue cover story featuring BTS , RM admitted that some recognition from the academy wouldn't go unappreciated by the group.

The Weeknd didn't break character throughout the three-hour show with his gauze-wrapped face The Weeknd was one of several artists who appeared live at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles for the Grammy -winning country duo Dan + Shay beautifully performed "I Should Probably Go to Bed"

The Weeknd sings about being a “star boy" but the Grammys' response to his latest album? Bye boy.

The pop star was severely snubbed this year despite having one of the year's biggest albums with “After Hours" and topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Blinding Lights" and “Heartless."

Luke Combs also walked away without a single nomination though he was country music's most successful musician this year. Morgan Wallen also had a great year in country music, but didn't earn any nods. And the Chicks' first album in 14 years was not recognized.

And the Grammy nomination goes to ... Megan? Harry? Weeknd?

  And the Grammy nomination goes to ... Megan? Harry? Weeknd? NEW YORK (AP) — Rappers and R&B singers tend to be the most-nominated acts at the Grammys thanks to producing their own hits and collaborating with others — sometimes from different genres — giving them a chance to qualify for more nominations than a pop or country singer who worked alone during the eligibility period. Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Jay-Z and others are proof of this theory, and in a normal year, Megan Thee Stallion would be that rapper who leads in nominations thanks to her hits “Savage” with Beyoncé and “WAP” with Cardi B, along with her successful EP “Suga.

Despite not receiving a highly-anticipated Grammy nomination this year, BTS ' music has had a The Grammys has been criticized in recent years for the lack of representation in the nominations and And BTS have had no shortage of accolades. They have won Album of the Year and Artist of the

A group of young R&B female acts moving the needle also missed out on nominations, including Summer Walker, Teyana Taylor and Kehlani. Late rapper Juice WRLD, Brandy and Chris Brown were also snubbed.

Though they received nominations in their genre categories, acts such as Lady Gaga, Fiona Apple and Harry Styles didn't pick up bids for album, song or record of the year.

K-POP KINGS

For years BTS have said their dream is to be Grammy-nominated. And they've finally achieved it.

The K-pop band is nominated for best pop duo/group performance with “Dynamite," their first song to hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

  The Weeknd Brands Grammys 'Corrupt' After He's Completely Snubbed From Nominations The Weeknd has branded the Grammys “corrupt” after he was completely snubbed from this year’s nominees, despite a hugely successful year. In the last year, the Canadian singer’s hit Blinding Lights sat at the top of the UK singles chart for a total of eight weeks, while in the US, the track became the longest-running top 10 hit in history. Meanwhile, his latest album After Hours was met with positive reviews and reached number one in the US, UK, Canada and Australia.However, despite all of this, The Weeknd failed to scoop a single nod when the nominees for the upcoming Grammys were announced on Tuesday evening.

Beyoncé's “Black Parade," released on Juneteenth, is up for four awards including record and song of the year. The protest song “I Can't Breathe" by H.E.R. is nominated for song of the year and best R&B song, while Lil Baby's “The Bigger Picture" — which reached the No. 3 spot on the pop charts — is up for best rap song and best rap performance. And Anderson .Paak's “Lockdown," about police brutality and racial injustice, is up for best melodic rap performance and best music video.

Country singer Mickey Guyton wrote “Black Like Me" a year before Floyd's death, but rushed to release the song because she said the time was right. The poignant track earned a nomination for best country solo performance.

LONG LIVE THE DEAD

John Prine died of complications of the coronavirus in April, but his spirit is all over the Grammy Awards.

The icon earned two posthumous nominations, including best American Roots performance and best American Roots song for “I Remember Everything."

No womenNo women in the Best R&B Album category? How dare you, Recording Academy!

Leonard Cohen has earned multiple posthumous nominations since his death in 2016 and is nominated for best folk album with “Thanks for the Dance," his fifteenth and final studio album.

And songwriter LaShawn Daniels, who died last year and won a Grammy for co-writing Destiny's Child's “Say My Name," is competing for best gospel performance/song with “Come Together" by his close friend Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins.

BTS: Single or taken? They unpack in the big interview

 BTS: Single or taken? They unpack in the big interview BTS is the biggest band in the world. What millions of screaming teenagers have known for tens of years the rest of the world now seems to have understood too. Jin, Suga, RM, J-Hope, Jimin , V and Jungkook are not just a fringe phenomenon. You are the new benchmark in the music industry. That only became clear once more a few days ago when they - once again - made history. They were the first K-Pop band to be nominated for a Grammy for their hit Dynamite. An accolade for every artist.

And the best comedy album award is stacked with famous folks, including Tiffany Haddish, Jerry Seinfeld, Patton Oswalt, Jim Gaffigan and Bill Burr.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé have won five Grammys together.

HIP-HOP IS DEAD

Despite rap music being today's most popular genre, no rap albums are nominated for the top prize, album of the year.

Expected nominees included Roddy Ricch's “Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial," Lil Baby’s “My Turn" and DaBaby's “Blame It on Baby" or “Kirk."

But those albums didn't even score nomination in the best rap album category. Instead, nominees were focused on rap purists and respected lyricists instead of the young performers dominating the pop charts.

Nominees for best rap album include Nas' “King’s Disease," Jay Electronica’s “A Written Testimony,” Freddie Gibbs and The Alchemist's “Alfredo," “The Allegory" by Royce Da 5’9” and D Smoke's “Black Habits."
