Many were upset that Adele beat Beyoncé for the Album of the Year Grammy at last weekend’s Grammy awards, Village People lead singer Victor Willis among them. He wrote an angry letter to the Recording Academy, claiming that it has “secret  committees” to ensure that the top awards don’t go to black artists like Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar. TMZ reported that Willis’ letter was directed at Recording Academy President Neil Portnow, demanding that he reveal the “secrets.” Willis claims that the secret group was put in place after Lionel Richie beat Bruce Springsteen for Album of the Year in 1985. TMZ stated that it’s research revealed that there is a secret committee, but one to knock out embarrassing nominations, like, Milli Vanilli, for example. However, once the nominations are locked, the voters have the final say. The Recording Academy responded to TMZ by saying that it has no “secret committees” and that all information regarding Nominations Review Committees can be found on the Grammy Recording Academy website.
