Takeaways from OMGs:

1. Guess which song was nominated for the Best Rap award? Drake’s Hotline Bling. Yes, that song was highly criticized and trolled on the Internet.

2. Two soundtracks from the TV series Stranger Things were nominated for Best Soundtrack for Visual Media in the same category.

3. Beyonce’s Lemonade was a blend of many genres. Still, the Grammys recognized it as rock music and nominated the song Don’t Hurt Yourself from their album for the Best Rock Performance category.

4. Anti, Rihanna’s album, was nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Recording AlbumAND Best Recording Package. Although the Internet critics quickly called it a mistake, I found the album to be very enjoyable.

5. Chance the Rapper’s album Coloring Book has received seven nominations. It was the first streaming-exclusive album that reached the top 10 on the Billboard 200 album charts. Grammys now accepts stream-only albums for its 59th award.

Kanye West is a must-see when it comes to award shows. Let’s take a quick look at Grammys 2015. He interrupted Taylor Swift’s speech at the 2009 MTV Awards. This time he pretended to get up on the stage to disrupt the celebration of Beck, who had the Album Of The Year. Let’s see what he has in store for next year’s Grammys.
