This has puzzled me for the longest time... Why is it that people say "Credits goes to" rather than "Credit goes to" or "Credits go to"? Basically, I don't understand why "credits" is treated as a singular noun in this particular case. Note that I'm not talking about movie credits or anything as such; what I have in mind, rather, is the kind of acknowledgements that can be found at the end of a document.
Never seen "Credits goes to" -- I agree with emsr2d2
Not a teacher (AmE native)
Such a practice is far from uncommon; try typing the phrase into Google, including the quotation marks.
The first two responses would be indicative of native speakers, and would reflect their knowledge of correct English. "Credits goes to" is wrong...
Still, your question hasn't been answered. I also did a Google search, and the first two pages brought up pages that appeared to be by non-native speakers. (Remember that there are probably as many people who don't know English using English on the web, as there are who do know it. When you add the number of uneducated or semiliterate native speakers to the former, and subtract them from the latter, it becomes more obvious why such errors occur.)
Why this phrase? Maybe there are many people who only know "credits" from movies, where it is almost always used in the plural, that they automatically use 'credits' whenever 'credit' is called for?
