The really weird Grammy nominees include Miley Cyrus’s sister, Noah Cyrus. She was nominated for Best New Artist of 2020.
I know we’re all a little dazed by the pandemic. But Noah Cyrus’s first single was issued in 2010. Her real career began in 2016 with “Make Me Cry” featuring Labrinth. It hit number 46 in the US was somehow certified Platinum.
She had 12 more singles in 2017, 2018, and 2019 on which she was the lead artist. She was the featured artist on several more. She is far from being a New Artist.
It doesn’t matter, I guess. Megan Thee Stallion will win that category. But it undermines the integrity of the Grammys that Noah Cyrus was sneaked into the Grammys by someone.
Here’s the four year old video for “Make Me Cry” from 2016. It has 147 million views.
