It’s official. Massive Internet popularity does not win you a Grammy. That’s what Carly Rae Jepsen learned on Sunday night, as her viral hit song Call Me Maybe failed to win her an award.
She’ll probably be able to continue to sleep at night, as the song earned her two nominations: Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.
As of the time of this writing, Call Me Maybe has over 402 million YouTube views. It has about a million and a half likes. And that doesn’t even begin to count all of the parodies and covers that have saturated the the biggest video site on the Internet.
Song of the Year winner “We Are Young” only has over 167 million YouTube views (about 800,000 likes).
