Grammys insist that Taylor & Kanye were not added to the AOTY list because of their "appeal"

Follow up to this story.


Recently, The New York Times revealed that additional songs and albums were given Grammy nominations at the last minute. However, Harvey Mason Jr., the chief executive of Recording Academy, has since said that the addition of Swift and West — superstars in their own right, whose rivalry is a perennial media spectacle — was solely a matter of the votes they received and that they were not selected for their appeal on the Grammys’ television show.

“A thousand percent no,” Mason said. “That was not a consideration.”

Representatives for each of the added artists declined to comment.

Here's hoping Joe Alwyn, songwriter on Evermore, can score his second win for Album of the Year!
