UPDATING Grammy Awards Snub 99% of Male Performers in Pop Nominations, Album of the Year, Record of the Year

Share

Jon Batiste has a new distinction: he’s the only male Grammy nominee in the pop categories for 2024. Everyone else is proudly female.

That’s right. In Album, Song, Record of the Year, as well as Pop Solo or Duo Performance it’s 99% women. Batiste pulled off noms for Album and Record of the Year. Otherwise, it’s all women!

Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, SZA, Boygenius, Victoria Monet, Janelle Monae, Lana Del Rey, and Billie Eilish swamped the top awards categories.

A few man got scattered noms in Rock and Country categories. But otherwise, the Grammys on February 4th will be ladies night. I guess this is sweet revenge for years of the guys getting all the attention.

Were there actually no pop songs from men this year?
