When the Grammy nominations were announced earlier today, fans of Taylor Swift and The Weekend were certainly thrilled, but a tone of discord quickly spread across social media as fans of Adele began protesting the seeming snubbing of the “Hello” singer, with not a single nomination for the hit single or her new album, “25.”

But really, Twitterverse, calm down. Adele’s latest record-breaking work isn’t eligible until next year’s Grammys, as this year’s honor workreleasedbetween Oct. 1, 2014 and Sept. 30, 2015. Which I’m guessing Taylor Swift is thrilled about. So you can expect an Adele sweep in about a year or so.
