Congratulations to our User Joe Hiegel for a terrific score of 81.25% when predicting the 2019 Grammy Awards winners on Sunday. He is actually tied with santanacris at that percentage but has the better point score total of 14,752 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Over 2,500 people worldwide predicted these 32 categories chosen by Recording Academy voters. The ceremony was held in Los Angeles and was hosted by Alicia Keys. Our top scorer got 26 of those categories, meaning he had correct picks for Album (Kacey Musgraves), Record and Song (Childish Gambino) and New Artist (Dua Lipa) among the great selections.
