NOVEMBER 25th 2020: The Weeknd accuses the Grammy Awards and the Recording Academy of being corrupt after failing to receive Grammy Award nominations for his album "After Hours" or his single "Blinding Lights". He and his management team contend that because he had agreed to perform during the 2021 Superbowl - and could therefore not also perform during the Grammy Awards Show - he was excluded for consideration for any Grammy Awards. - File Photo by: zz/DP/AAD/STAR MAX/IPx 2017 5/1/17 The Weeknd at the 2017 Costume Institute Gala - "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art Of The In-Between" held on May 1, 2017 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
