    How is this thread still running? Just the other day I read an editor say they close every thread with over 500 posts and open a new one. It’s time for a new one. This is so old the newest comment feature doesn’t even work.

    While I think the Grammys are “over” rewarding veteran acts

    Is Beck a veteran act?

    You can argue that, yes.

    I think all the big pop album releases for this grammy period have been released already…
    so this is my final prediction on
    Best Pop Vocal Album:

    1. Adele – 25
    2. Justin Bieber – Purpose
    3. Coldplay – A Head Full Of Dreams
    4. Ariana Grande – Dangerous Woman
    5. Selena Gomez – Revival

    (if there are 6 nominees like 2 years ago then the last spot may be filled by Glory by Britney Spears)

    Oh and I think Best New Artist is already done.

    BEST NEW ARTIST

    The Chainsomokers
    Chance the Rapper
    Yuna
    21 Pilots
    The 1975

    for Urban Contemporary album. (3 people are already locks)

    Beyoncé – Lemonade
    Rihanna – Anti
    Frank Ocean – Blond

    the other 2 filler noms are still pending.

    I would imagine The 1975 are ineligible because Chocolate was a big hit off their first album. I would not be surprised if 21P aren’t eligible either, but I see them making the list before the 1975. The Chainsmokers and Chance the Rapper sound like sure things, and I would genuinely be surprised if Alessia Cara is left off the list.

    I think BNA sure-bets are Chance the Rapper and The Chainsmokers. Perhaps 21 Pilots, since they’ve been around pretty much the entire eligibility period (why would they be ineligible?)

    Alessia Cara, Daya or Halsey could get it but not more than 1 of them – they’re too similar. Leaning towards Alessia.

    Not predicting The 1975 – old news.

    A country artist?

    Best New Artist could be:
    Bryson Tiller (I don’t know why people are sleeping on this potential nominee)
    Alessia Cara
    Twenty One Pilots
    Chance The Rapper
    A country artist?

    Maren Morris would probably be the country artist to get a Best New Artist nomination.

    Best New Artist is always such a cluster with eligibility –

    Twenty One Pilots didn’t release an album during this year’s eligibility period, are they even eligible here? Blurryface came out last year and reached #1 then.

    The Chainsmokers released their first album during this year’s eligibility so I would assume they are good to go. They had a single peak top 20 before this, though, so not sure if that’s enough to disqualify them.

    Chance the Rapper seems eligible given his releases were streaming-only back when mixtapes didn’t qualify.

    Currently Predicting:

    Alessia Cara
    The Chainsmokers
    Chance the Rapper
    Halsey
    Maren Morris

    Non-soundtrack albums that spent 10+ weeks at #1 on the Billboard 200.

    Alanis Morissette – Jagged Little Pill (won AOTY)
    Santana – Supernatural (won AOTY)
    Backstreet Boys – Millenium (AOTY nom, lost to Santana)
    Taylor Swift – Fearless (won AOTY)
    Adele – 21 (won AOTY)
    Taylor Swift – 1989 (won AOTY)
    —–
    Adele – 25
    Drake – Views

    Given this track record, I feel pretty comfortable saying that Adele and Drake will both land AOTY nominations.

    I’ll say Adele, Beyoncé, David Bowie, Drake, Radiohead.

    Lots of possible vote splitting here; Bowie and Radiohead, Beyoncé and Drake, Adele and Beyoncé…

    Bowie or Beyoncé should win, but I kinda feel like Adele will.

    But…it’s not until recently that they made up new rules.

    Drake has only had 2 weeks in the sales T2.

    Halsey will not be nominated for BNA. What has she done other than “Closer”?

    People are really underestimating Lukas Graham in BNA. 7 Years was a huge hit and Mama Said is gain traction. Not to mention they got a VMA BNA nod.

    My Predictions for BNA:

    Lukas Graham
    Alessia Cara
    Maren Morris
    The Chainsmokers
    Twenty One Pilots (If they’re eligible)
