Look, the GRAMMY eligibility period is weird. We get it. To earn a nomination, an album had to have been released between Oct. 1, 2012 and Sept. 30, 2013. Midnight Memories, One Direction's third album, was released on November 25. Still, this didn't stop ardent fans from expressing their displeasure over their favorite group's perceived snub.
