When a GRAMMYs list supposedly leaked all of the 2019 winner's, people scrambled to work out if it was real or not, but the Recording Academy have strongly denied it.
The Recording Academy has had to strongly deny that the allegedly leaked list of 2019 winners has any legitimacy to it after the internet basically went into meltdown with names like Taylor Swift, Cardi B and Drake announced as this year's champions.
The Recording Academy made a statement officially denying the list had any truth to it, saying:
"There is no legitimacy to this. GRAMMYs 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 in sealed envelopes."
Did they actually leak the Grammy winners on accident ?!?! Wtf 😂😩 but they already deleted it pic.twitter.com/0V5yqDkTed— Sara 💓⚡️ (@dreamyxsara2) January 29, 2019
Their social media account said the list was based on an "archived version of the webpage" of the official website.
However, some ultra sceptical fans are keeping the conspiracy theories alive, saying that they hope The Grammy's don't 'switch' which artists receive the award now a faked leak may have correctly guessed the actual winners.
