I do have a question about the Grammy's in general. Not looking for an argument, just asking a question.
Several posters assert that the popularity of a song is not a factor in deciding what songs win a Grammy. That seems to make sense, since if popularity were a factor, then California Gurls, Teenage Dream, Firework, Roar, and Dark Horse would all have Grammys, and ET would have at least been nominated.
However, when I questioned why Katy did not even submit Unconditioally for a Grammy, despite it being the album's most critically acclaimed song, everybody said that the song was not popular enough.
My question is: which is it? If popularity is not a factor, then why did Katy not even submit Unconditionally? If popularity is a factor, then why did none of California Gurls, Teenage Dream, Firework, Roar, or Dark Horse win a Grammy, and why was ET not even nominated?
