Fans are speaking out about the nominees and who they want to win. Though there is a lot of support for Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are also seeing a lot of their fans speaking out on social media platforms.
Neither Shawn Mendes or Camila Cabello have won a Grammy and as they have been nominated for the duet that is credited with bringing them together as a couple, many find it would simply be romantic if they won.
In addition to Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, the Jonas Brothers have a lot of support for the win as they too have yet to win a Grammy.
Post Malone and Swae Lee are also getting a lot of social media support. Post Malone has six nominations yet hasn’t won a Grammy. Swae Lee has five Grammy nominations and no wins.
