  Twitter is losing it over Ed Sheeran's Grammy snub The 2018 Grammy nominations are here — but that doesn't mean everyone was included. Pop artists who have dominated major categories in recent years , including Adele, Taylor Swift and Sam Smith, were excluded from the major categories in the 2018 noms, making room for more hip hop and R&B noms from Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar and more. One snub causing a stir on social media is that of Ed Sheeran. After cleaning up the 2016 Grammys with Thinking Out Loud, fans had good reason to expect his 2017 Divide would take home some trophies.
