It's not the first time fans have felt the Grammy's nominations haven't been decided justly. After snubbing the Weeknd for not nominating his critically acclaimed album 'After Hours', the Recording Academy is ignoring Miley's efforts this year.

The pop-rock album debuted on number 2 of the Billboard Hot 200 chart with the single 'Midnight Sky' being in Billboard Hot 100's top 15. According to the standard edition of the album, it contains a total of 12 songs, 3 of which were released as singles: 'Midnight Sky', 'Prisoner', and 'Angels Like You'.

Fans showed outrage after the nominations were released since they couldn't see their idol's name anywhere. The main producer of Plastic Hearts, Andrew Watt won a Grammy for 'Producer of the Year Non-Classical' but Miley still remains unrecognized. Does this seem fair to you?

Dua Lipa's album 'Future Nostalgia' won a Grammy for 'Best Pop Vocal Album' and fans counted that as a win for Miley too. This is because her and Dua collaborated for the song 'Prisoner', included on the album 'Future Nostalgia'. 

Now that the 2021 Grammys have ended, fans are hoping for 'Plastic Hearts' to be recognized for 2022 Grammys. Do you think their pleas will be heard? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
