As the 57th annual Grammys are getting closer, we decided to release our picks for some of the most coveted awards. Spoiler alert: you will see a lot of Beyonce and Sam Smith on Grammy Night.
The 2015 Grammy nominations were lead by both Sam Smith, Pharrell Williams, and Beyonce. Both being nominated for six different awards. Will any go 6 for 6 on their nominations? Probably not, but two will come pretty close. Here’s how we predict Sam Smith and Beyonce will come close to going perfect on the night:
Record of the Year: “Stay With Me”
Album of the Year: In the Lonely Hour
Best New Artist
Best Pop Solo Performance: “Stay With Me”
Best Pop Vocal Album: In the Lonely Hour
Best R&B Performance: “Drunk In Love”
Best R&B Song: “Drunk In Love”
Best Urban Contemporary Album: Beyonce
Best Music Film: Beyonce and Jay Z’s On the Run Tour
Ultimately, we think Sam Smith has the better shot of going 6 for 6. The biggest roadblock is in the Song of the Year category, where we predict Hozier wins with his hit single “Take Me to Church.” He definitely deserves credit for his breakthrough year and his debut album, Hozier.
Here’s how we think some of the other top coveted awards will be handed out:
Best Dance Recording: “Rather Be” – Clean Bandit ft. Jess Glynne
Best Dance/Electronic Album: Do It Again – Royksopp & Robin
Best Rock Performance: “Lazaretto” – Jack White
Best Rock Album: Morning Phase – Beck
Best Alternative Album: St. Vincent – St. Vincent
Best Rap Album: Because the Internet – Childish Gambino
Best Remixed Recording: “All of Me” – Tiesto
