Red carpet season is in full swing, which brings us to the Grammys, one of the biggest award shows of the year. Many of our favorite artists have been nominated this year including Post Malone, Fall Out Boy, twenty one pilots, Bring Me The Horizon, FEVER 333 and many more.
A lot has changed since the show’s humble beginnings in 1958. Before you tune in to see who won in your favorite category Feb. 10, we’ve got a test for you. Do you think you know alternative facts about the Grammys? Challenge your knowledge below.
Popular music fans possibly experienced some awards season confusion this week when an apparently leaked list of 2019 Grammy Awards winners made the rounds on Twitter, the since-deleted tweet proffering a roll of seven Grammy winners.
Alas, the proposed list was not legit, the actual Recording Academy states, a rep for which took to the internet themselves to refute the supposed leak. Did this rumored roster of Grammy winners catch you by surprise on Monday?
Purporting to show the winners of most of the music award show’s main categories, as reported by Complex, the “GRAMMY 2019 WINNERS” tweet from former Twitter user @everyday4you was said to be “[l]eaked from official site.”
Of course, the tweet—which had some, um, let’s say, interesting choices for its picks in foremost Grammy categories like Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist—wasn’t at all true, the Academy put forth:
“There is no legitimacy to this. GRAMMY Awards results are not shared, even with Recording Academy staff members, until the day of the GRAMMY Awards ceremony, when names of the recipients are delivered by Deloitte in sealed envelopes.”
Fake Grammy Winners list (via Twitter):
Song of the Year — “Shallow”
Record of the Year — “I Like It”
Album of the Year — H.E.R.
Best New Artist — Chloe x Halle
Best Pop Solo — Beck (“Colors”)
Best Pop Duo — Zedd (“The Middle”)
Best Pop Album – Taylor
The 61st Grammy Awards air Sunday, Feb 10 on CBS at 8 p.m. EST.
