Adele won't win a Grammy award in 2016

December 07, 2015

Fans of British songstress Adele were furious on Monday when the 2015 Grammy nominations were announced.

Why didn't Adele — the reining queen of music, get any Grammy nominations?

After all, Adele's third studio album "25" has broken nearly all the records available for international music and is the first album to sell more than 4 million copies in a calendar year.

The music video for "Hello" also broke Vevo's Record by achieving over 27.7 million views within a 24-hour span, held previously by Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood".

Seriously! How could The Grammy's deny Adele?

But they didn't.

According to the official Grammy website: "For the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards, albums must be released between Oct. 1, 2014 and Sept. 30, 2015." 

Unfortunately, neither Adele's single "Hello" nor her album was released in that time frame, as "Hello" was released on October 23 and "25" on November 20.

So Adele, who won six Grammys in 2012, was definitely not snubbed by the Grammy's and she will be eligible for the 2017 Grammy presentations.

According to New York Daily News Online, "That’s how Eminem’s “Marshall Mathers LP2” won its 2015 Grammy for best rap album even though it was released in the fall of 2013."

Pharrell Williams also fell victim to the nomination period and won a 2015 Grammy for “Happy,” which was also released in the fall of 2013.
