"There is no legitimacy to this," the Recording Academy sais in a statement. "Grammy Awards results are not shared, even with Recording Academy staff members, until the day of the Grammy Awards ceremony, when names of the recipients are delivered by (official Grammy accounting firm) Deloitte in sealed envelopes."
Billboard reports that The Recording Academy is considering legal action.
