The Weeknd & Rosalía’s “Blinding Lights” Remix Is Here
“We understand that The Weeknd is disappointed at not being nominated,” Recording Academy interim president and CEO Harvey Mason Jr. said in a statement, “I was surprised and can empathize with what he’s feeling. His music this year was excellent, and his contributions to the music community and broader world are worthy of everyone’s admiration.”
“We were thrilled when we found out he would be performing at the upcoming Super Bowl, and we would have loved to have him also perform on the Grammy stage the weekend before,” Harvey continued. “To be clear, voting in all categories ended well before The Weeknd’s performance at the Super Bowl was announced, so in no way could it have affected the nomination process.”
