    'I am not racist' is thousand times better than this mumble rap song. The Grammys were too biased seeing it's music video. I don't think that it really deserves a Grammy. They are so biased that they didn't even nominate Eminem's album, which was the bestselling in rap genre.( Maybe cause he dissed them in 'Fall')

      What could possibly be more important than what the musicians have to say? Prioritize the show so that musicians get the spotlight and that you have advertisement time and everything else working AROUND THEM. No wonder Ariana bailed. It's amazing that Janelle did so well considering how restricting the Grammys obviously can be with the wrong decisions being made.

    This is real, solid, and undeniable proof and evidence that the Grammy's have turned into a joke. The music playing before he finished his speech for SONG OF THE YEAR, the fact that Donald Glover wasn't even at the awards to claim a reward he doesn't even deserve, the fact that now, we bring politics into everything; music and movies, and that the most important award in the music industry was given to a talentless bozo with absolutely no musical gift. Pure garbage.

      James Vasquez Oh no the he’ll its not! It is a creative rap song that has deep meaning to it and has a great video *but* it is a rap song! This is song of the year. This is America doesn’t have much music to it. Shallows actually has a tune and melody to it. Also, it does have to do with politics! The messages put in the song are not the current state, it’s more like how it was in the 20th Century. Racial injustice is no where near as bad. Look at data of police killings in recent years. It’s just a stupid political agenda that these famous shows are trying to force on gullible people like you
