    I’ve been building it now for a few weeks, scouring these threads for contenders, and I’ve gotten word from the recording academy on several candidates. For instance …

    In for New Artist: Hozier, Meghan Trainor
    Out for New Artist: The Weeknd

    Everyone can start making their predictions now, and if there are any glaring omissions, please let me know.

    Good to know that The Weeknd is ineligible for Best New Artist. Don’t see any case where he should be eligible anyway.

    I guess we should be getting some word about submissions in the upcoming week or so. I want someone to leak the list. Sorry not sorry.

    I believe so they had been on here lately giving answers about eligibility.

    Lean On definitely belongs there. I can’t make my predictions without it

    While I love the song, I don’t see “Lean On” getting a General Field nomination.

    It’s been since 1973 and Jesus Christ Superstar that a Original Cast Recording of a Broadway production was nominated for AOTY. However, perhaps the time has come again with Hamilton.

    From Billboard

    2015’s best rap album isn’t by Drake, Kendrick Lamar or Dr. Dre — it’s the cast recording of Hamilton, a vital companion to the most creative, most talked-about musical to hit Broadway this millennium (read Billboard’s cover story on the show here). True, an audio recording (executive-produced by The Roots’ Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson and Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter) can’t reproduce the subversive visual impact of seeing star/creator Lin-Manuel Miranda (recently awarded a MacArthur Foundation “genius grant”) and a predominantly black and brown cast take on America’s founding fathers and mothers — on the Great White Way, of all places. But digesting every nuance in these mostly rapped renditions of the infamously verbose title character’s oratorial jousts is almost impossible without a rewind button; every listen finds a new sanguine historical detail, slick interpolation of a hip-hop classic or dizzying rhyme pattern delivered with Eminem-level intricacy, particularly on the epic “Cabinet Battles” between the lead and Thomas Jefferson. Hamilton’s stage production should be required viewing for every American citizen, but this exhilarating listen is a much more practical, and every bit as enjoyable, stand-in. 

    Perhaps this should be added to the Grammy Prediction Center. It may well be a surprise choice.

    Does anybody know if the Fifty Shades soundtrack is a choice for Album of the Year. Screw the movie, but the soundtrack was actually pretty decent.

    “Empire: Original Soundtrack from Season 1” peaked #1 on Billboard, so for me has better chances, but the Fifty Shades soundtrack has hits like “Earned it” and “Love Me Like You Do”, both songs could appear in ROTY or SOTY, the album peaked #2, on Billboard so it could happen. Both albums will be nominated for Best Compilation Soundtrack Album for Visual Media, but I think fifty will get more nominations in different categories for the songs.

    About Jesus Christ Superstar, I didn’t know both the London production and the broadway recording were nominated for AOTY in consecutive years (1972-1973), the musical had a huge impact those years, it’s a classic, you can’t compare that to Hamilton, also voters have a bias to rap music, so it won’t happen, JCS was rock music and peaked #1 on billboard, so…

    As I said in another post, voters will nominated albums that have peaked at least #10 on Billboard, less than that is not common.

    I’ve added “Empire” and “Hamilton” soundtracks to Album of the Year.

    I’ve also added “Freedom” and “Lean On” to Record and Song of the Year.

    Honey, I’m glad The Weeknd is ineligible for Best New Artist.  He established himself two years ago.
