Because it's really popular

That and the fact that they think it makes some kind of statement. It's nothing special, but it's nice to have something like that on the radio I guess.

Besides, "Biting Down" is clearly the much superior Lorde song. That or "The Love Club".

Disliking a well known pop song... now that's bravery.

Royals is a fairly unique pop song for which I give kudos. As for an "awful" melody, I am not sure what that means other than "Saddam doesn't like it" which is fairly irrelevant. The Grammy's are only really concerned with popular music, so within that field I feel they chose a deserving winner; it's definitely got more substance than the average Rihanna or Katy Perry fare or the faux-fringe of Lady Gaga.

I think Kendrick Lamar was better therefore RACIST!

Why would Kendrick Lamar be labeled as a new artist anyway?
