No TRICON this year, no one's on its level :glasses3:

Vanguard Award is a better name than tricon tbh. I have a feeling MJ Vanguard Award is coming back this year 💀💀💀

Honestly, I agree. But at least it got nominated for 2 awards, even if they're only small(ish) categories. I suppose it's better than nothing. But I hope 911 wins at least 1, if not both awards. 

And I wouldn't mind Ariana Grande and Olivia Rodrigo winning something. I'm not their biggest fan but I like some of their songs. 

Tbh, I think P!nk & her daughter Willow Hart should've gotten some sort of nomination for their song Cover Me in Sunshine & I also think P!nk should've gotten some sort of nomination for her song All I Know So Far. I also think Olivia Newton-John & her daughter Chloe Lattanzi should've gotten some sort of nomination for their song Window in The Wall or it's MV, which is beautiful 😍
