Lizzo Shows Off Her Full Range With ‘Jerome’ at 2019 AMAs

  Lizzo Shows Off Her Full Range With ‘Jerome’ at 2019 AMAs Fresh off her league-leading eight Grammy nominations, Lizzo capped off a triumphant year at the 2019 American Music Awards, delivering a passionate version of her waltzing ballad “Jerome.” “This light represents the love that you have for yourself. So shine bright,” the singer told the audience, instructing the crowd to pool the collective glow from their cellphone screens. Clad in a frilly dress, Lizzo showcased her full vocal range on the track — building from growls and screeches to cinematic falsetto leaps.  At the 2019 American Music Awards, Lizzo is up for Best New Artist, Best Soul/R&B Song (“Juice”) and Best Female Artist Soul/R&B.

Grammy voters tend to reward establishment heavies at the expense of young rule-breakers. This year they can do both, because the rule-breakers are the establishment, from Lil Nas X moving from TikTok to the top of the charts, to Billie Eilish turning her teenage goth visions into world-owning hits.

Album of the Year

Who Will Be Nominated:

Taylor Swift Lover

Lizzo Cuz I Love You

Ariana Grande Thank U, Next

Alicia Keys Returns as GRAMMY Awards Host for a Second Time

  Alicia Keys Returns as GRAMMY Awards Host for a Second Time The singer hosted the 2019 ceremony in February.The "Girl on Fire" singer will emcee the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards in January for a second time. Keys' first time taking the reigns was this year, where she also delivered a stellar performance.

While the 62nd annual Grammy Awards are still a few months away, and the nominees have yet to be announced, we're starting to think about potential performers. One of the most entertaining parts of the awards show is undoubtedly the performances, and with so many great songs and collaborations out

Chance the Rapper The Big Day

Ed Sheeran Collaborations: #6

Who Will Win:

Taylor Swift Swift’s Grammy run (32 nominations, 10 wins) is nearly unprecedented for someone still in her twenties. Her last album, Reputation, was unduly snubbed in 2018, despite being the biggest seller of that year, and it’s hard to imagine the voters making the same blown call again.

Who Should Win:

Taylor Swift And they’ll be right! Even in a stacked category, Lover feels like a shoo-in, summing up everything Swift has always done well — from nostalgic guitar weepers to radiant Eighties throwbacks and inspiring assertions of self-determination. Like Prince or Madonna before her, she pioneered the pop freedoms many of her fellow nominees take for granted.

Grammy snubs 2020: Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen miss out on major nominations

  Grammy snubs 2020: Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen miss out on major nominations Past winners Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga and Chance the Rapper are missing from top categories in the 2020 Grammy Awards nominations.It's a surprising yet welcome change from past years, when a reliable list of familiar faces have repeatedly dominated music's biggest night. But there are some stadium-filling stars and Top 40 staples who were passed over or snubbed entirely for top honors at the upcoming show, which will be held Jan. 26 at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

Song of the Year

Who Will Be Nominated:

Taylor Swift “ME!”

Lil Nas X “Old Town Road”

Ariana Grande “Thank U, Next”

Lizzo “Truth Hurts”

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello “Señorita”

Who Will Win:

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello Usually, the Grammys screw up Album of the Year (see Bruno Mars beating out Kendrick Lamar in 2018). This year, however, we think they’ll punt the Best Song category, defaulting to Mendes and Cabello’s sweet-but-safe hit in the face of so many other groundbreaking options.   

Who Should Win:

Ariana Grande No song this year shocked the world quite like Grande’s post-breakup epic, gloriously saying so long to her ex Pete Davidson with a warmth, generosity, and equanimity that’s lacking in pop music and, in the Trump era, society itself. It’d be a fabulous way to honor an artist beginning a historic roll.

Best New Artist

Who Will Be Nominated:

Billie Eilish

Lil Nas X

Maggie Rogers

Tyler Childers

Rosalía

Who Will Win:

Billie Eilish Spanish singer Rosalía has bent tradition to her will by pulling flamenco into the future, and Lil Nas X came up with a song so catchy that dolphins can sing it. But Eilish came out of nowhere to top the charts with her debut, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, and that kind of success is like Grammy-voter catnip.

Who Should Win:

Billie Eilish Artists like Eilish just don’t come around that often, and you might have to go back to Eminem or even Kurt Cobain to find figures who could make their creepy desires resonate with such universal power the way she did on songs like “Bad Guy” and “Bury a Friend.” Not bad for a record made by a 17-year-old in her bedroom.

Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X Lead 2020 Grammy Nominees

  Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X Lead 2020 Grammy Nominees Lizzo, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X scored the most nominations for the 62nd Grammy Awards, with all three notching nods for Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Best New Artist. Lizzo led the pack with eight nominations, including “Truth Hurts” for Record and Song of the Year, and Cuz I Love You for Album of the Year. Eilish, who garnered six nominations, was also nominated in those three categories: “Bad Guy” for Record and Song of the Year and When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? for Album of the Year.

Best Rap Album

Who Will Be Nominated:

Chance the Rapper The Big Day

2 Chainz Rap or Go to the League

DJ Khaled Father of Asahd

Tyler, the Creator IGOR

Juice Wrld Death Race for Love

Who Will Win:

Chance the Rapper In 2018, Chance took home some serious hardware for Coloring Book, including the Grammy for Best Rap Album. His win for Best New Artist that same year ensured the universally beloved Chicago rapper will be a front-runner for any future awards. This year, and in the absence of new LPs by Kendrick Lamar and Drake, he’s an easy pick. Though long-awaited, The Big Day wasn’t as commercially or critically successful as its predecessor — it’s the kind of poppy, optimistically wholesome rap record that wins mainstream awards.

Who Should Win:

Tyler, the Creator Picking Tyler, the Creator’s critically championed opus would be a ballsy move, to say the least. But after nearly a decade in the game, his evolution from troll-y troublemaker with the L.A. outré-rap collective Odd Future to fully realized hip-hop auteur is one of pop music’s most compelling stories. True to Tyler’s groundbreaking rep, IGOR is a sonically rich, surprisingly vulnerable album that pushes boundaries and still sounds great. In other words, just the kind of career culmination the Recording Academy should celebrate.

Best Country Album

Who Will Be Nominated:

Eric Church Desperate Man

Vince Gill Okie

Maren Morris Girl

Pistol Annies Interstate Gospel

George Strait Honky Tonk Time Machine

Who Will Win:

Maren Morris Last year, Morris scored six noms in the country and pop categories with her debut album, Hero. Its follow-up, Girl — which combines infectious pop smarts, empowering lyrics, and sharp country songcraft — should be poised to do even better.

Who Should Win:

Eric Church The outlaw country rock on Desperate Man may be a little raw for some voters (despite seven noms, Church is still Grammy-less). But his eclectic drive and working-class politics are just what Nashville needs.

Best Latin Pop Album

Who Will Be Nominated:

Rosalía El Mal Querer

Luis Fonsi Vida

Alejandro Sanz #ElDisco

Mon Laferte Norma

Ximena Sariñana ¿Dónde Bailarán Las Niñas?

Who Will Win:

Rosalía The brooding Spanish flamenco star became an avant-pop princess seemingly overnight with her R&B-inflected second LP. After sweeping two Latin Grammys for her 2018 single, “Malamente,” she’s primed to smoke her veteran competition at this year’s show.

Apple will reportedly release an iPhone without any ports in 2021

  Apple will reportedly release an iPhone without any ports in 2021 Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts the next two years of iPhonesThe change would be a big one for Apple, which has relied on the Lightning port for all of its phones since it was first introduced on the iPhone 5 in 2013. And while modern-day iPhones are certainly less reliant on physically syncing data, going to a fully wireless model would have huge ramifications across the tech industry, with everything from charging cable companies to headphone manufacturers being impacted.

Grammy Preview 2020 : Predicting the Nominees in Six Major Categories .

Who Should Win:

Bad Bunny Urbano — an umbrella term for Latin trap and reggaetón — is the most popular genre on Spanish-language radio. Yet the industry’s powers-that-be still haven’t caught up (urbano artists even get snubbed at the Latin Grammys). Though it might not even be nominated, Bunny’s sprawling 2018 debut, X 100pre, is an internationally minded, genre-melting example of just how exciting this emerging sound can be. Hey, maybe next year.

Apple’s answer to OLED could arrive as early as next yearKuo had originally broke the rumor that Apple was working on laptops and tablets with the new screen technology earlier this year, but at that time, he put the date as either 2020 or 2021. The new research note pins that down, predicting that Apple will release both an iPad Pro and a 16-inch MacBook Pro with Mini-LED screens as early as the end of next year.
