Last night should have been Lil Baby’s night, according to his fans and followers when the American Music Awards were televised.
His album My Turn has been a top seller this year, while two of his singles “Emotionally Scarred” and “The Bigger Picture” have become hits for the Hip-Hop artist. With the year he has been having, winning some of the awards would have definitely been icing on the cake.
Yet, that has not been happening so far, so a lot of devotees were hoping the AMAs would honor him in a big way.
Last night at the American Music Awards, Lil Baby was one of the six artists shortlisted to win Best New Artist alongside DaBaby, Doja Cat, Lewis Capaldi, and Roddy Ricch.
This could have been the award show were Baby get the Best New Artist win. He didn’t as someone else took home the prize instead:
Doja Cat ultimately took home the award, leaving Baby’s fans doubly disappointed after he failed to win Album Of The Year at the 2020 BET Hip-Hop Awards — an award that went to Roddy Ricch for Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial.
Fans and users took to social media to express their frustrations over someone as controversial as Doja winning over Baby. They were not too happy over that decision:
As you can see with the fan responses above, they felt that Doja should NOT have won over the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch and Summer Walker among others, including of course, Baby.
No word yet from Baby on what he thinks of the AMAs snub and whether he thinks he deserved the Best New Artist award, or if Doja was the correct winner.
