My Big Bold Grammy Winner Predictions

I think predicting who wins three of the big Grammy Awards this year is pretty much like taking candy from a baby. (Ooooh, I love candy… oops, sorry I got sidetracked)… You see Adele is nominated for 6 awards and 3 of them are the biggies: Record, Song and Album of the Year and she has them in the bag. And I’d say deservedly so. Her album, 21, is a colossal global smash not to mention critically acclaimed and her singles “Rolling in the Deep” and “Someone Like You” are already classics. So, saying she is going to win this year is pretty darn obvious, but it’s true. The question is who else will be picking up some hardware at Sunday’s Grammy Awards on CBS. With that said, take a look at my predictions in the big 4 categories, the pop field and a few other select competitions. (Remember they combined several categories this year~ all female and male solo vocal competitions are now just “Solo” vocal, etc. So, it’s a pretty interesting race)…. And watch the show Sunday night with performances by nominees Kelly Clarkson, Jason Aldean, Rihanna, Coldplay, Katy Perry and more plus the return of Adele to the stage after her vocal surgery.
