I’m honestly excited for the music awards this year. I do wish there was more of a variety between the artists who were nominated, but at the same time Malone, Eilish and the others are all very deserving of multiple awards.
We’re in a really cool era of really good music generated and produced by really young people. I’m very excited to see where their careers end up going.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Eilish ends up taking home all the awards though. She’s phenomenal.
