When Carly Rae Jepsen emerged on the music scene with the hit single Call Me Maybe, we didn’t expect that the America’s Got Talent guest star would be racking up Grammy nominations. But hey, it’s always nice to be proven wrong!
Hey, we just heard her, and this is crazy — but Carly Rae could be headed for a Grammy — maybe?
That’s right, the singer of last summer’s hit Call Me Maybe is in the running for a Grammy Award. She’s definitely come far since her adorable audition on Canadian Idol in 2007. These days, Carly Rae’s voice is loved by everyone from Justin Bieber to Cookie Monster! A Grammy would simply be the cherry on top after a year of unprecedented success. And Carly Rae has the opportunity to win the big award in two categories: Song of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance.
Carly Rae may be excited about the possibility of winning a Grammy Award, but that takes second place to the opportunity that really has her worked up: attending the awards ceremony! The singer recently told The Seattle Times, ”To be really honest with you, leading up to every Grammy weekend except for this one, I was getting comfy in my PJs with my popcorn bowl and deciding whose dress I liked the best. So it’ll be different for me to actually put on a dress of my own”
Do you think Carly Rae Jepsen is deserving of a Grammy? Or is the Call Me Maybe star simply an overrated one hit wonder in the making? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!
