On Monday night, the internet lit up with rumors that a short list of winners for the 61st Annual Grammy Awards had leaked via their official website.
According to the ‘leaked’ list, Cardi B and H.E.R. were among the night’s winners.
Song of the Year — Shallow
Record of the Year — I Like It
Album of the Year — H.E.R.
Best New Artist — Chloe x Halle
Best Pop Solo — Beck (Colors)
Best Pop Duo — Zedd (The Middle)
Best Pop Album – Taylor
A spokesperson of the Recording Academy provided Complex with the below statement and says the entire list is FAKE:
“There is no legitimacy to this. GRAMMY Awards results are not shared, even with Recording Academy staff members, until the day of the GRAMMY Awards ceremony, when names of the recipients are delivered by Deloitte in sealed envelopes.”
The actual ceremony will take place on Sun, Feb. 10 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be hosted by Alicia Keys.
