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 thousands of readers like you who make up the largest (and often savviest) bloc of predictors.
The two biggest winners according to our racetrack odds will be Lady Gaga and Kacey Musgraves. Gaga is predicted to win four of her five races, all of them for her “A Star is Born” love ballad “Shallow”: Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Visual Media Song. This would bring her career total to 10 Grammys.
Musgraves is the front-runner in all four of her categories: Album of the Year and Best Country Album (“Golden Hour”), plus Best Country Solo Performance (“Butterflies”) and Best Country Song (“Space Cowboy”). Her two previous Grammy wins came for her debut: Best Country Album for “Same Trailer Different Park” and Best Country Song for “Merry Go Round.”
