Here's What It Takes To Become A Voter For The Grammys

It's kind of hard, but it's worth it, I promise.

The Grammys: the awards show where literally ANYTHING can happen, including Beyoncé ACTUALLY losing.

But... Beyoncé NEVER loses?!?! Kanye was just looking to fix a glitch in the universe.

It's fucking INSANITY. We live in a world where Hillary Clinton — yes, Queen Hillary — has more Grammys than Katy Perry.

Which leads me to wonder... couldn't we fix this from the inside? It WOULD require that we all become Grammys voters. But how does one ACTUALLY make that happen?

How? HOW?!?!

So I dug up the receipts, and lo and behold, becoming a Grammys voter is sort of hard, but not totally impossible for normal folk like you and I. Here's how it works:

Here's what the Grammys website says:

"Recording Academy Voting Members are professionals with creative or technical credits on at least six commercially released tracks (or their equivalent). These may include vocalists, conductors, songwriters, composers, engineers, producers, instrumentalists, arrangers, art directors, album notes writers, narrators, and music video artists and technicians."

Full details here.

So for instance, if you write the album notes for six songs... like below... you can become a Grammys voter!!!

Or you can narrate a book, like Hillary did. There's more than one way to skin this cat!

To make this even EASIER for you, here's a link to the job postings for Atlantic Records and Sony Music.

Now you REALLY don't have any more excuses!

Now it may take you a little while to qualify...

... BUT ONCE YOU GET THOSE SIX CREDITS... YOU CAN CHANGE MUSIC HISTORY ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!

Now get to work.

Let's do this!
