If Olivia Rodrigo beat Taylor Swift at the Grammys this year, the latter will no longer take the stage. She could have gone earlier as Taylor had been credited for “Sour” by Olivia Rodrigo, as she had been nominated for the album due to a tween on the album. However, the Recording Academy has updated its nominee list and excluded all names that were previously there.
Olivia’s “Sour” competes with Taylor Swift’s album “Evermore”.
After the Grammys changed the rosters, Taylor was no longer on Olivia’s songwriting team. In addition, other names including St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark, and Jack Antonoff have been deleted. The above names and Taylor Swift had co-wrote ‘Cruel Summer’, a song from the ‘Lover’ album that Olivia Rodrigo and her team credited as a tween on the hit ‘Deja Vu’ even though she didn’t. had only the most modest similarity to the Fast Album Track.
