The Weeknd has accused the Grammys of being corrupt, after failing to receive any nominations for the 2021 awards.
The Canadian star had been expected to perform strongly, thanks to his number one album After Hours and the hit single Blinding Lights.
大家都認為這位加拿大巨星可以收穫滿滿，畢竟他擁有宇宙神專After Hours, 還有其中大火的單曲Blinding Lights.
"The Grammys remain corrupt," he wrote on Twitter. "You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency."
The Grammys said they "empathised" with his disappointment but that some "deserving" acts missed out every year.
After Hours is the biggest-selling album of the year so far in the US, while Blinding Lights is the longest-running top 10 hit in US chart history.
After Hours是今年美國最熱銷的專輯，而Blinding Lights是美國曆史上雄踞Billboard單曲榜前十名時間最長的單曲。
The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, recently won major prizes at the MTV VMAs and the American Music Awards, and will perform at the Super Bowl half-time show next February.
Several US media reports suggested he was locked out of the Grammys after weeks of discussions over a possible appearance at next January's ceremony.
"There was an ultimatum given, resulting in astruggle over him also playing the Super Bowl, that went on for sometime," an unnamed source told Rolling Stone magazine. "[It] was eventually agreed upon that he would perform at both events."
一位不願透露姓名的消息人士對《滾石》雜誌説：“有給他下最後通牒，他糾結於超級碗中場秀的表演，這樣的協商持續了一段時間。” “ [最終]同意他將參加這兩次活動。”
The head of the Recording Academy, which organises theawards, dismissed any suggestion that the star's award nominations had been cancelled as a result of these negotiations.
"We understand that The Weeknd is disappointed at not being nominated. I was surprised and can empathise with what he's feeling," said Harvey Mason Jr.
小哈維·梅森（Harvey Mason Jr）表示：“我們知道盆栽沒有被提名感到失望。我很驚訝，可以理解他的感受。”
"Unfortunately, every year, there are fewer nominations than the number of deserving artists. To be clear, voting in all categories ended well before The Weeknd's performance at the Super Bowl was announced, so in no way could it have affected the nomination process."
Several artists sided with The Weeknd, including SirElton John, who wrote on Instagram: "In my humble opinion, Blinding Lights[is] song of the year."
幾位藝術家支持盆栽，包括在Instagram上寫道的埃爾頓·約翰爵士（Sir Elton John）：“以我的拙見，Blinding Lights是年度最佳歌曲。”
"Abel was robbed," agreed rapper Kid Cudi, while RnB singer Tinashe simply responded to the nominations with a series of dustbin emojis.
“阿貝爾輸得不公平，”説唱歌手Kid Cudi説道，RnB歌手 Tinashe直接用一堆垃圾箱表情來評價這次提名，怒懟格萊美。
