Reason #3: The Grammy organizers are all part of #TeamMariah.
Mariah Carey has won five Grammy Awards over the course of her career. She's also performed at the Grammys numerous times in the past. So, when word got out that Mariah and Nicki Minaj were beefing on the set of American Idol late last year, of course the Grammy organizers sided with Mariah! Hey, it's a pretty ridiculous reason to leave someone off the ballot. But, it makes just as much sense as any other reasons that we've presented here, right?
