Lizzo's 2-year-old song might still qualify at 2020 Grammys

FILE - In this June 23, 2019 file photo, Lizzo arrives at the BET Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Lizzo’s breakthrough hit “Truth Hurts” is a two-year-old song, but it still has a chance at the 2020 Grammys. “Truth Hurts,” which was released in 2017, qualifies for the 2020 Grammys because the song was never submitted for contention in the Grammys process and it appears on an album released during the eligibility period for the upcoming show.

NEW YORK (AP) — Lizzo's breakthrough hit "Truth Hurts" is a two-year-old song, but it still has a chance at the 2020 Grammy Awards.

Typically older songs that become hits long after their initial release — from Pharrell's "Happy" to John Legend's "All of Me" — can compete at the Grammys when a live version of the song, released during the current Grammys eligibility period, is submitted.
