Grammy Nominees: What We Missed Out On

2023 Grammy nominations: All the snubs and surprises we’re going to miss out on

A year after getting stuck with the No. 1 record of the year, it’s time to find out what all the Grammy voters were thinking when they picked the nominees.

In this piece, we’ll find out what we missed out on, including songs from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Imagine Dragons, Dua Lipa, and more.

Without further ado:

Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album – “When We Were Kings”

R&B legend Wilson Phillips picked this as his favorite album of the year, with “When We Were Kings” nabbing six nominations.

The album came back from near-complete obscurity to finally score a Grammy in 2019.

Other nominees include Beyonce and “Lemonade,” which was previously nominated for album of the year.

R&B singer Marvin Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up” and “Got To Give It Up To Rock and Roll” were also considered, but ultimately didn’t make the cut.

Best Rock Song

We’re only just starting to see the depth of this year’s crop of contenders, but if we’re including “How I Won” and “Chillin,” it looks like the top song category is going to be a struggle.

“When We Were Kings” topped this list with nine nominations, but neither Justin Timberlake’s hit “Can’t Stop the Feeling” nor Ed Sheeran’s “Castle on the Hill” made the cut.

Other contenders include a new song from Imagine Dragons, “Thunder”, Drake’s “God’s Plan,” Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” Ariana Grande’s “God Is a Woman,” and even “Despacito.”

R&B queen Beyonce also gets a look in for her collaboration with The Chainsmokers, “Good as Hell” (which reached No. 27 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart).

Best Instrumental Album – “Blackbird”

Somebody in the band from the Eagles can only have one best album, right
