The upcoming 57th annual Grammy Awards seem to have drummed up enough controversy, mainly due to the ratings-gaining nominations of popular artists, whether white or black, taking some of the focus away from some acts that contributed extraordinary content. Yes, everyone can't be nominated, and only a few will be winners, but it seems like music at the grassroots level is continually overlooked.
Artist like Tank, Ledisi, and Kelly Price did some great things for the R&B genre, but the Grammy telescope continues to miss their vast contributions.
Here are five artists that we think were snubbed at the upcoming ceremony.
The 57th Annual Grammy Awards will take place on Sunday, Feb. 8, 2015 (8:00-11:30 PM, live ET/delayed PT) at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on the CBS Television Network.
