The nominees for the 63rd Grammy awards are out and the weekend was not even nominated for one award and The weekend ‘s fans are not taking pretty well.
It’s not up to debate that ‘blinding lights’ was a highly omnipresent song in the past year and It is hard to imagine this distraught year without the weekend’s ‘After hours’ there to make everything much more bearable and it’s no secret that he led experts predictions lists for the pasts months.
And yet the total number of nominees for the star amounted to zero.
Just a day before the Grammy nomination were announced, Abel shared a message thanking his fans for the support and on his after hours album journey.
just wanted to thank the fans for committing to this journey with me. i love you guys so much, none of this is possible without ya’ll seriously. XO— The Weeknd (@theweeknd) November 23, 2020
Immediately after the eligibility window closed, a trailer—featuring acclaim for the acclaim-worthy album—was shared from the official Weekend Twitter account.

The Grammy committee thought they were probably being “real” by not nominating The Weeknd … disgraceful— DJ Akademiks (@Akademiks) November 24, 2020
