Some fans of pop music would say Ed Sheeran got robbed when it comes to the lack of GRAMMY nominations he received on Tuesday morning.
While big names such as JAY-Z, Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars all earned a notable amount of nominations, pop stars Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Alicia Keys, Katy Perry Miley Cyrus and Kesha all appeared to be snubbed.
Sheeran's album, ÷ (Divide), was one of the biggest albums of the year, with his song, "Shape of You," becoming the most streamed song of all time on Spotify. However, the 26-year-old singer-songwriter only received two GRAMMY nominations and not in the top categories.
"I'm more surprised that Ed Sheeran didn't receive nominations for Album, Record, OR Song of the year," one fan tweeted after the nominations were announced. "Divide is the bestselling album of 2017 and 'Shape of You' and 'Castle on the Hill' were HUGE. If anyone is sadder than us right now, it's Ed. He probably expected WAY more."
