Unlike Adele's clean sweep at last year's event, the Grammys spread the wealth this year in a night full of surprises. Three users outdid all others, predicting 24 out of 35 categories for a score of 69%: DaryOchoa, youllseemeontv, and kyller. Another 16 users predicted 23 categories right, for 66%.

That was better than any of our editors, among whom Darrin Dortch and David Schnelwar did best, predicting 21 out of 35 categories (60%). They were followed by Marcus Dixon (55%), Daniel Montgomery (49%), Rob Licuria (46%), and Chris Beachum (35%). Matt Noble predicted 11 categories and scored 55%.

Only two of our nine experts predicted all 35 categories with Glenn Gamboa (Newsday) scoring better, with 20 correct (58%).
