We are predicting the winners of 32 Grammy Awards races. Our forecasts are based on a combination of five sets of predictions: music Experts, Gold Derby Editors who cover awards year-round, the Top 24 Users who got the top scores predicting last year’s Grammy winners, the All-Star Top 24 who got the highest scores when you combine the last two years’ Grammy results, and hundreds of total Users who make up the largest (and often savviest) bloc of predictors.
We’re predicting that Beyonce will be the big winner, claiming five awards from a leading nine nominations including Album of the Year for “Lemonade.” That haul will bring her career total to 25, and tie her with classical composer Vladimir Horowitz as the fifth most awarded artist in history.
Adele will go four for five, winning both Record and Song of the Year for her mega-hit single “Hello.” The only category she’s forecast to lose is Album of the Year to Beyonce; she won that top award five years ago for “21.”
