*THE ONES I GOT RIGHT ARE BOLDED! I got 12 out of 20 correct!!! I know my music!!
Hey PopStylers!!! Tonight is the 58th Grammy Award Show!! If you know me, then you know that the Grammys are my show!! I LIVE for the MUSIC and the PERFORMERS and the ACTION of this show!! And of course my #1 artistic muse and boo thang Lady Gaga is performing and nominated so I am excited!!
Here are my predictions for some of the bigger categories winners and should be winners….. Granted I dont know some of the nominees in the categories (like Country, music for film) but that’s not gonna stop me from predicting a winner haha
1. RECORD OF THE YEAR: Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson ft Bruno Mars
2. ALBUM OF THE YEAR: This is a tough one because Ive recently gotten into “Sound and Color” by Alabama Shakes. But Im gonna say the winner is “1989” by Taylor Swift
3. SONG OF THE YEAR: “Alright” by Kendrick Lamar HANDS DOWN!! This was the anthem of the summer and the anthem of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. FTW!! I even posted about this back in June 2015….MusicCrushMonday- Kendrick Lamar June 2015
5. BEST POP SOLO PERFORMANCE: “Thinking Out Loud” Ed Sheeran. This video is gorgeous!!
6. BEST POP DUO/GROUP PERFORMANCE: It comes down to 3 nominees in this category… I think Kendrick Lamar should be recognized for his duo with Taylor Swift, but it’ll probably go to Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth for “See You Again”…. can we say heart strings?? (MISS YOU Paul Walker!!)
7. BEST POP VOCAL ALBUM: 1989 by Taylor Swift
9. BEST ROCK PERFORMANCE: Don’t Wanna Fight by Alabama Shakes…. this group is growing on me strong
10. BEST ROCK ALBUM: I like the sound of Muse… I’ll give it to Muse
11. BEST R&B PERFORMANCE: Rise Up by Andra Day
is the epitome of what real R&B should sound like!! Dear God please let her win this and reclaim R&B!!!
13. BEST R&B ALBUM: Jazmine Sullivan came back with a strong alum after years of being gone from music scene….
14. BEST RAP PERFORMANCE: Even President Obama referenced these lyrics with his “pop off” comment….Back To Back by Drake
15. BEST RAP/SUNG COLLABORATION: I feel like I should say Glory, but Im gonna say “These Walls” instead… it’s a nice sound for Kendrick Lamar
16. BEST RAP SONG: Once again…. Alright by Kendrick Lamar FTW!! Even though Trap Queen will never get old….
17. BEST RAP ALBUM: THIS IS TOUGH!!! 3 way tie between Drake, J. Cole, and Kendrick Lamar… sorry I cant choose! (We sort of)
18. BEST COUNTRY DUO/GROUP PERFORMANCE: I dont know country music like that anymore… but I LOVE the song “Girl Crush” by Little Big Town… FTW!!!
