After American Idol, After The Voice, Award Shows

Singing show stars miss out on Grammy awards

former contestants from singing shows and two current coaches were up for Grammy honors Sunday night.

In each case, the Grammy went to someone else.

But former X Factor contestant Camila Cabello still supplied one of the night’s most touching moments, singing “First Man,” a tribute to her father.

Former Idol contestant Danny Gokey, now a Christian artist, was up for two awards. In both case, the honor went to King and Country.

Danny took to Twitter to congratulate the group.

“I didn’t win a Grammy tonight but I’m still so thankful to Christian radio and all those who have supported my music. Quite honestly, maybe ‘I just haven’t seen it yet,’ Danny wrote in a play on the title of his Grammy-nominated album.

“I believe my best songs are still yet to come,” he added. “Congrats to @4kingandcountry for their 2 wins.”

Also up for Grammy Awards were Voice coaches Blake Shelton and John Legend and former Voice finalist Koryn Hawthorne, now a gospel artist.
