Why Adele Did Not Make 2016 Grammy Award Nominations Despite Smashing Album
Her record-breaking comeback album 25 has taken the world by storm, but it’s been less than a month since its release so it wasn’t eligible for consideration.
Adele managed to smashed through records as she set the record for the most downloads of her single Hello, as well as managing to shift 3.38 million of her album in the first week.
But it won’t be recognised in the 2016 Grammy Awards.
“I guess Adele “Hello” deserve a Grammy huh” tweeted one fan.
Another tweeted: “so adele isn’t nominated for a grammy, what kind of joke is this”
One Adele fan really took it to heart, as they wrote: “Actually screaming over how Adele didn’t get a grammy nomination at all.”
On its website, to be eligible for a Grammy, they state: “For the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards, albums must be released between Oct. 1, 2014 and Sept. 30, 2015.”
Adele sadly didn’t make the cut with the timing of her single and album release only dropping in late October and November.
The British beauty already has 10 Grammy awards sitting at home after having scooped the gongs in every category she was nominated for in 2012, 2013 and 2014
The 83 categories were announced this morning, with Kendrick leading the noms with 11 nods.
