Grammys bosses quickly backtracked after missing Olivia Rodrigo’s nod for best music video while announcing the nominations.
The Drivers License singer, 18, has been mentioned in no less than seven categories for the upcoming awards ceremony, which will be taking place at the Crypto.com Arena in LA, on January 31, 2022.
However, there appeared to be a mishap when revealing the names in the mix for the best music video gong.
The announcer confirmed that AC/DC, Jon Batiste, Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X had scooped a nomination but then went on to the next category, despite Olivia’s name flashing up with Good 4 U.
Fans were left unimpressed by the scenes, and flocked to Twitter to share their annoyance at the teenager being left off the list.
‘Olivia Rodrigo’s FIRST ever grammy nomination and she got SKIPPED …………. bye,’ one fumed.
‘#GRAMMYs Hey @RecordingAcad the woman forgot to mention Olivia Rodrigo. She must be devastaded [sic],’ another agreed.
A follower screamed: ‘SHE FORGOT TO SAY GOOD FOR YOU BUT IT WAS ON THE SCREEN???? IS OLIVIA RODRIGO A GRAMMY NOMINEE????’
‘Olivia Rodrigo did not write songs crying in the bathroom floor for you to skip her name!!!
