It was a tweet that appeared on Monday that created all kinds of social media buzz when a list of 2019 Grammy Award winners was leaked.  But a spokesman for the Grammy Awards says the leaked information is not legitimate and that the Academy is considering legal action.

The tweet showed someone scrolling thru the winners from a hacked site and among the winners that were shown were Maren Morris along with Zedd and Grey for the song "The Middle" in the Best Pop Duo / Group Performance category.

Maren Morris is nominated for five Grammys.  In addition to Best Pop Duo / Group Performance she's also nominated for:

  • Country Solo Performance - "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters"
  • Country Song - "Dear Hate"
  • Country Duo / Group Performance - "Dear Hate" with Vince Gill
  • Record - "The Middle"

Although there are the denials it all looks pretty authentic and that's a shame that the surprise seems to have been spoiled.  Great for Maren if she is indeed a winner, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Meanwhile, The Boot has more on the story.
