Part of “Music’s Biggest Night” may (or may not) have been spoiled by a random account on Twitter.
Twitter account @everyday4you listed off a number of winners from the upcoming GRAMMY Awards. The since-deleted account alleges the winners were found on the official GRAMMY site. (The original tweet was screenshot.)
Among the awards potentially spoiled is Best New Artist, which names R&B duo Chloe x Halle as the winner and not Greta Van Fleet.

Other potential winners include Cardi B’s “I Like It” for Record of the Year and Lady Gaga’s “Shallow” for Song of the Year.
The Recording Academy has issued a statement to People saying, “There is no legitimacy to this. 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 Deloitte in sealed envelopes.”
Of course, whether the leaks are true will be determined when the 61st GRAMMY Awards air live on Sunday, February 10 at 8 PM EST on CBS.
