On Tuesday, the Grammys released their 2018 nomination list and it had social media buzzing in full force. We don’t think any music fan can say they don’t get excited to watch the Grammys year-to-year, especially if one of their favorites are on the nomination list.
With the Grammys producing one of the most diverse nomination list in HISTORY, we can’t wait for the 2018 show! The Grammy’s have received some backlash in the past for their lack of diversity, as of matter of fact, almost every year! The fact that minority groups are leading as far as how many nominations they have, and also are the majority in almost every major category is HUGE! This is a massive move for diversity in the music industry, and it pulls award shows away from the status quo.
Speaking of diversity, every year EDM becomes a little more popular, and of course these artist are becoming more recognizable. With that being said, we felt like it’s important to showcase some of the artists from this music scene, who will be nominated at the 2018 awards show. One duo we’re rooting for is Adventure Club for their “Undercover” remix. Today, they released this statement on Twitter
Momma we made it! Honored and humbled by this Grammy nomination. We wouldn’t be here without your guys’ love and support. – Adventure Club
