PokéCommunity Grammy Awards

Hi everyone and welcome to Pokécommunity's first ever Grammy Awards!

So we've been noticing that the WAYLT thread is picking up a lot of steam, so what better way to harness that then to pit all those lovely songs you listen against one another and see which is truly the best? Much like the Grammys themselves, you'll be nominating your choices (for 2020) over a slew of categories by posting them into the thread here. We'll then have a voting phase where you can vote as many songs etc. as you wish and then the top 4 will go into a head-to-head where you can only vote on to receive the Grammy.

Excited? I hope so, for I sure am! If nothing else, I've got the best red carpet look and I just can't wait to show it off. Without further adieu, here are our categories:

Categories
- Best single of 2020
- Best album of 2020
- Best new artist/band of 2020 (that you discovered in 2020, not formed in 2020)
- Best music video of 2020
- Best lifetime achievement (your favourite song overall, regardless of year released)


To vote, simply post your submissions in this thread! We'll give this a week or so to gather votes and then we'll move onto the voting phases. Any questions just shoot either myself or Ash Ketchup a DM/VM!

My submissions:

Best single of 2020: Dua Lipa - Don't Start Now



Wikipedia lists this at the end of 2019 but it was nominated at this year's grammy for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance, so I guess that was just the promo date. If it turns out to be ineligible, then replace it with the track I nominated for best video below :)


Best album of 2020: Dua Lipa - Future Nostalgia

It features the above single.


Best new artist/band of 2020 (that you discovered in 2020, not formed in 2020): Halestorm







I already knew them but 2020 was the first time I really listened to them!


Best music video of 2020: (G)I-dle - Oh My God



OMG indeed!


Best lifetime achievement (your favourite song overall, regardless of year released)

This one is impossible for me, I don't have a single favourite, I have many. So I literally picked one of those at random: The Supremes - You Keep Me Hangin' On



A similar message to the Dua Lipa track in a way! Still sounds as awesome as ever today :)
