Greta Van Fleet Lose Best New Artist at 2019 Grammys
Greta Van Fleet won big in rock at the 61st annual Grammy Awards, but lost in the Best New Artist category. They were beat out by pop singer Dua Lipa.
The band were nominated for a total of four Grammys in 2019, including Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song and Best Rock Album. They won the award for Best Rock Album.
"Music's Biggest Night" is happening in Los Angeles tonight (Feb. 10), and it's airing on CBS. A total of 84 golden gramophones will be handed out throughout the night. All rock categories were once again left out of the primetime telecast and were handed out during the pre-telecast, however Greta Van Fleet represented rock in this category, which was announced during the mainstage show.
Late last month, a supposed list of leaked winners predicted the band would lose Chloe x Halle, but the Recording Academy issued a statement on the list of leaked supposed winners for the 2019 Grammys saying it was not legitimate.
"There is no legitimacy to this,” the Recording Academy told Complex. “GRAMMY Awards results are not shared, even with Recording Academy staff members, until the day of the GRAMMY Awards ceremony, when names of the recipients are delivered by Deloitte in sealed envelopes."
