Recording Academy Says Grammy Winners Leak Is Fake

Los Angeles, CA – A potential spoiler for the 61st annual Grammy Awards turned out to be fake. After a list of winners supposedly leaked and spread on social media, the Recording Academy responded to refute its validity.

“There is no legitimacy to this,” a Recording Academy spokesperson said in a statement to the press. “Grammy Awards results are not shared, even with Recording Academy staff members, until the day of the Grammy Awards ceremony, when names of the recipients are delivered by [accounting firm] Deloitte in sealed envelopes.”

Some of the tweets that led to the spread of misinformation have since been deleted. Still, the fake winners list continues to circulate on Twitter despite the Academy’s response.

The forged version claimed H.E.R. won Album of the Year and Cardi B secured Record of the Year. According to Billboard, the Academy is looking into taking legal action.

Fans will find out who the real winners are when the 2019 Grammy Awards take place on February 10. The ceremony will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and air live on CBS at 8 p.m. Eastern.

Kendrick Lamar leads the way with eight nominations. Drake and Cardi are close behind with seven nominations each.
