That list also includes the likes of Lady Gaga, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and any other pop star. According to the latest rumor mill, those ladies won’t be filling up their dance cards anytime soon. For the 54th annual Grammy Awards, the academy is reportedly switching things up and blocking top pop stars from entering the Dance category. For the past several years, female pop stars have dominated the category with the likes of Rihanna and Lady Gaga winning Best Dance Recording Grammys in 2011 and 2010 respectively for “Only Girl (In The World)” and “Poker Face” respectively.
Though no official announcement has been made, several Academy members have confirmed the new policy when a supposed leaked list of nominees surfaced. On that rumored list, none of today’s pop stars were included. The reason behind the Academy’s policy change is to make way for true electronica and dance artists. This way, musical acts like Benny Benassi, Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Skrillex and similar musicians have a better chance of being honored and walking away with a golden Gramophone.
