grammy predictions fun taylor swift kanye west jay-z frank ocean entertainment music news

Our Grammy experts are predicting a big night for Fun. With six nominations, the indie pop trio is tied for the most overall bids, and they're expected to win five of them: Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Pop Duo/Group Performance for their single "We Are Young"; Pop Album for "Some Nights"; and Best New Artist.  However, Mumford & Sons is predicted to stop Fun.'s sweep by winning Album of the Year for "Babel." (See predicted winners in 35 races here.)

Also leading with six nominations apiece are Kanye West and Jay-Z, who are expected to win four for their collaborations from their "Watch the Throne" album: Rap Performance and Rap Song for "Ni**as in Paris," and Rap/Sung Collaboration and Short-Form Video for "No Church in the Wild."

Four wins for West would bring his career total to 22, which would tie him with U2 and Stevie Wonder as Grammy's sixth most honored artist. Four wins would bring Jay-Z's total to 18, which would tie him for 13th place among all-time winners.

Frank Ocean, another six-time nominee, is a featured artist on "No Church in the Wild," and is also expected to win a third prize on Grammy night: Urban Contemporary Album for "Channel Orange," which is also up for Album of the Year.

Predicted to win two awards apiece are:

Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars (Country Duo/Group and Visual Media Song for "Safe and Sound");

Skrillex (Dance Recording and Dance-Electronica Album for "Bangarang");

Bruce Springsteen (Rock Performance and Rock Song for "We Take Care of Our Own"); and

Miguel (R&B Performance and R&B Song for "Adorn").
