    @Nicki Minaj, Timberlake is better than Usher. 20/20 sh*ts on everything Usher has put out after confessions.

    @JHP, Not really. Usher will always be the better artist

    JT is about to clean up this year. Macklemore doesn’t deserve rap artist of the year over Jay-Z, but I won’t be surprised if they give it to him. And The Heist definitely doesn’t deserve best album over good kid M.A.A.D. City, and not even Magna Carta for that matter.

    @JHP, this is more a popularity contest so Macklemore will probably win.

    This awards show is a mess. Firstly there is actually an EDM category?! EDM isn’t even a real music genre.
    All the nominations are messed up too.
