The Best Traditional Pop Vocal category is one that some people are a little confused about. The Best Traditional Pop Vocal category is for albums where at least 51 percent of the album is pure vocal tracks in traditional music styles.
Since Andrea Bocelli has yet to win a Grammy, he is the leading favorite and many people are supporting the Italian opera singer on various social media platforms.
The category used to be limited to songs from the Great American Songbook but was recently expanded and allowed approximately 80 more entries into the category. There was a lot of hope that Joni Mitchell would score a Grammy nomination but it wasn’t to be.
What do you think of the five nominees for the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Grammy award? Do you think the best nominees were selected? The Grammy Awards will take place on January 26, 2020, on CBS.
Are you happy that the Grammys expanded the Best Pop Vocal Album category to include more entries?
