Taylor Swift took home the award for best pop vocal album at the 2016 Grammy Awards Monday night.
She won the award for her album”1989,” beating out music from James Taylor, Mark Ronson, Kelly Clarkson, and Florence + the Machine. Note that Ariana Grande is not among the artists Swift beat; her album “My Everything” was nominated, but did not win, back at the 2015 Grammy Awards.
Still, Grande’s fans online are upset that Swift won the coveted award and Grande did not. Thousands of people have retweeted this video comparing the two artists, which features a clip of Grande singing, followed by a clip of Swift singing.
While Swift’s raw vocals aren’t her finest performance, it’s worth noting that Grande’s clip has background sounds so it’s not a totally fair comparison.
But Grande fans are going to bat for their beloved leotard-clad pop star anyway.
Imagine is Taylor Swift had the vocals of Ariana Grande
