Who campaigned the hardest to win at 2021 GRAMMYs

One of this year’s biggest campaigners has been Dua Lipa, nominated for six awards including Album, Record, and Song of the Year. Lipa got a coveted spot on the “SNL” Christmas episode hosted by series alum Kristen Wiig, where she performed her three-time nominated song “Don’t Start Now.” Lipa also stopped at other spots, including Netflix’s “SongExploder,” where she did a full breakdown of her song “Love Again” and talked about the inspiration behind the “Future Nostalgia” album. She also dropped by Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show,” YouTube’s “Hello 2021” series, and perhaps most importantly NPR’s “Tiny Desk Concert.”
 

Another artist who was quite active was Taylor Swift. She released a whole new album, “Evermore,” received with much acclaim just like her currently nominated collection “Folklore.” She also appeared at the Apple Music Awards and “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and her song “Willow” has been doing consistently well across the board, topping the Billboard Hot 100 and remaining in the top 30 after nine weeks as of this writing. Swift also released a Disney+ documentary for “Folklore,” titled “The Long Pond Studio Sessions,” in which she performs songs from the album and talks about the creative process behind them.

 

Last year’s sweeper Eilish has also followed through, doing a whole Virtual FYC Fest organized with Variety with celebrated composer Hans Zimmer to promote “No Time To Die,” nominated for Best Visual Media Song.

I can't wait to see how this thread will go ....

Both front-runners campaigned heavily but both have massive hurdles to overcome. It’ll probably be none of the people named for AOTY. :deadbanana4:

I'll say it's Dua, Doja and Chloe x Halle.  All of these ladies have given excellent live performances with strong visuals, outfits, etc.

Speak on it! That album could pull a surprise win, and after H.E.R pulled in those surprise nominations and wins I wouldn't be too shocked

Jacob Collier and Coldplay being the only AOTY nominees with some dignity :clap3: 

If Coldplay had any dignity they wouldn’t have submitted that:coffee2:

It is their most acclaimed album since 2002 :coffee2:

 I feel like Coldplay might win because they are the “veteran act” of the bunch. They deserved to win for Parachutes or AROBTTH or Viva La Vida. So this might make up for that. But the album is actually pretty good. I personally think it’s in their trinity.
this is all giving me Beck 2.0, except this time none of the nominees deserve to win, so it wont be a major upset.
