The 66th Annual Grammy Awards took place on February 4, 2024. The Grammys are a prestigious music awards ceremony that recognizes the best artists, compositions, and recordings. Grammy Awards are presented by the Recording Academy of the United States.

However, on the night of the 4th, things may have taken a different turn when it came to recognizing the “right artists.” The Grammys winners often spark controversy in the music industry, among music fans, and on the Grammy stage itself, with all interested parties arguing over whether the correct performers won.

Jay-Z’s callout at the most recent awards ceremony hinted at the false metrics that take place every year.

“Some of you don’t belong in the category,” Jay-Z announced on stage at the awards ceremony as he accepted the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award. He highlighted that even though Beyoncé has won the most Grammys, she never won Best Album.

To see the differentiating opinions between the Recording Academy Voting Members and the general public’s opinion, we asked the students at Lightridge High School who they think should have won in some of the major categories. Here are the results:

Taylor Swift – “Midnights” – ACADEMY WINNER
