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.
Kendrick Lamar is the second most nominated artist of the year with seven bids, and he’s projected to win six of those. The artist with the most nominations this year is nowhere to be found on our list of predicted winners: Jay-Z has a leading eight noms, but our users are expecting his rap rival Lamar to steamroll over him in all of their categories.
Bruno Mars has six nominations and is out front in three R&B categories: Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song (“That’s What I Like”), as well as Best R&B Album (“24K Magic”). Not bad for an artist who has actually never competed in the R&B field before. He has typically been considered in pop categories, but it sounds like his R&B throwback album is about to pay off.
