Kanye West Crushes Hillsong United and Bethel Music at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards

Kanye swept almost all the Christian categories at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday night, winning 4 of a possible 6 and his work receiving a total of 9 nominations, the most of the night.

West, who is busy promoting his possible spoiler presidential campaign, gave glory to God for the recognition his Jesus Is King album received, saying in an uploaded video:

Thanks (to) all of my Christians that’s been praying for me, praying for the day where I would serve the kingdom. You know God just keeps showing up. Incredible increase and the favor.”

Kanye took home Top Gospel Artist, Top Christian Album, Top Gospel Album and Top Gospel Songs, losing only to Lauren Daigle for Top Christian Artist and For King and Country’s “God Only Knows,” for Top Christian Song.

Artists he beat include Kirk Franklin, Bethel Music, Hillsong United, Casting Crowns and Skillet. None have yet commented on their losses.

  1. Seriously? Your “Staff Writer” better start working on their discernment some more. Should we really be giving kudos and high-fives to Kanye, a Christian impostor (remember his “walk on water” with Joel Osteen… call that the fruit of a true convert?) beating out other musical Christian impostors at some secular music award? That’s news-worthy?
    Shame… with this and other “articles” recently published… I see you are heading down the road of turning Protestia into the “Christian TMZ” not worthy of even bookmarking.
