The four general-field categories are the most hotly contested at the Grammy Awards, combining artists from all genres to determine the best music of the year.

Last year, Fun. became only the ninth artist to receive nominations in all four general-field races in a single year. No one is expected to repeat that this year, but several artists are forecast to earn three bids apiece when nominations are revealed on Friday (Dec. 6): previous winners Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars, as well as newcomers Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and Lorde.

Predicted to contend in two races apiece are Taylor Swift and Daft Punk.

Below, our predictions for the nominees in the top four races. Our forecasted champs are in gold while potential spoilers for nominations are in italics. (Click here for our predicted nominees by artist.)
