A tweet has been circulating about an alleged leak of the results of the winners of the 2019 Grammy Awards.
The tweet’s attached video also showed an alleged winners’ list from the Recording Academy’s website and also claims to have seen a deeper list of winners from a supposed hack of the site.
However, the Recording Academy has reacted to the reports, noting that the result is not even shared with staff members until the day of the Awards ceremony, hence there was no legitimacy to the claims that the Grammys Results were leaked.
The Academy has reportedly also reached out to their legal team about potential legal action.
In a statement shared with Billboard, the Recording Academy spokesperson says:
“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.”
