Best New Artist Winner is Esperanza Spalding: WTF? [News]

There is a lot of uproar relating to Drake and Bieber both losing out to Esperanza Spalding… to be fair to Drake, it’s mostly the Bieber fans crying foul. Here is a piece we found on Twirlit.

Los Angeles, CA – The Grammy Awards have been unpredictable in the past but the award handed out for Best New Artist this year was the most unpredictable of them all. Everyone knows that the Best New Artist category is a popular category that features some of the future superstars of the music industry. In this category were both Justin Bieber and Drake but neither of them took home the gold. So who did? Esperanza Spalding. Who is she? We asked ourselves the same question.

Perhaps she has a following but, before 10 seconds ago, I had never heard the name in my life. For this woman to be considered Best New Artist over Justin Bieber and Drake just seems ridiculous… don’t you agree? We’re not sure who calculated the votes in this category but we’d be pushing for a recount. This just doesn’t seem right. No disrespect to Esperanza (we don’t even know enough about her to say anything disrespectful) but there’s no way she’s considered the artist to look out for over Justin Bieber and Drake. Were you surprised to hear that Esperanza Spalding won the elite award for Best New Artist at the 2011 Grammys?

    All I got to say is listen to her chamber music society album. She deserves that award. Drake and Bieber are not on her status.
