10 Predictions for the 2013 Grammys

0 680


With the 2013 Grammy Awards airing this Sunday night on CBS, we thought now would be the time to throw in our bids for who is going to win the golden Gramophones this year.  Just don’t hold us to our answers.


1. Best New Artist goes to…

Grammy

Frank Ocean! Because let’s be honest, he was easily the most talked about artist this year between his coming out story and his chart-topping songs.  If Frank Ocean doesn’t win, I will have lost faith in the music industry.


2. Best Pop Solo Performance goes to…

Grammy

Adele…obviously.  Look at all those awards.   It’s pretty much a safe bet that if Adele is nominated for an award, she will win it.


3. Best Rap Performance goes to…

Grammy

Jay- Z and Kanye West for N—as in Paris.  I say this mainly because it’s the only nominated song that I’ve listened to extensively, but it’s a good one!


4. Best R&B Performance goes to…

GrammyMiguel or Usher because quite honestly, I don’t know.  It’s a toss-up at this point.  On one hand you have Usher, who’s a Grammy-winning legend and Miguel, who had it not been for Frank Ocean would likely be the most talked about artist.  In short, I don’t really know who’s going to win this one.


5. Best Rap/Sung Collaboration goes to…

Jay-Z and Kanye again!  It probably helps that Frank Ocean is also featured on the song “No Church in the Wild”.  Basically, I love this duo and they need to win every award.


6. Best Urban Contemporary Album goes to…

GrammyChris Brown! …Just kidding.  Frank Ocean and Channel Orange will probably win this one too.


7.  Best Traditional R&B Performance goes to…

This one’s tough.  On one hand, you have the amazingly talented Melanie Fiona.  On the other, Beyonce.  This category causes me too much stress.


8. Album of the Year goes to…

Mumford and Sons’ Babel.  I’d like to root Frank Ocean on in this category as well, but Mumford and Sons were huge this year and appealed to a much wider audience.


9. Record of the Year goes to…

Grammy“Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye ft. Kimbra. This song was a viral phenomenon and everyone knows that viral hits have a secret pull in the voting process.


10. Song of the Year goes to…

grammy

“We Are Young” by Fun.  Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” was catchy and I adore Ed Sheeran, but Fun.’s anthem will definitely be taking home the Gramophone on Sunday night.


Bonus: Best Performance of the Night goes to…

grammyThe Ed Sheeran and Elton John duet.  “Why?” you may ask.  Well, 1. It’s Elton John.  2. It’s Ed Sheeran.  3. It’s Elton John and Ed Sheeran doing a duet.  I mean, really, can it get much better than that?  I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
