The 2021 Grammy nominations were announced this morning. Nominees include Beyonce, Megan Thee Stallion, Post Malone, Dua Lipa, Billie Eilish, DaBaby, Doja Cat, and Jhene Aiko.
Noticeably absent from the nominees were many significant artists. They include The Weeknd, Lil Baby, Katy Perry, Halsey, BlackPink, Lil Uzi Vert, Juice WRLD, Nicki Minaj, Summer Walker, Cardi B, and Selena Gomez.
Many online are especially upset because The Weeknd didn’t get nominated. He was recently announced as the upcoming Super Bowl halftime performer, he won big during the American Music Awards, and After Hours stayed on the Billboard 200 chart for four straight weeks.
See some of the Twitter reactions to artists that got snubbed.

The Weeknd, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Rina Sawayama, Blackpink, Selena Gomez, Halsey, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B are heavily snubbed by grammy. While an undeserved person got 3 nominations when his album and song are rated as one of the worst event in history.
