Adele, Kendrick Lamar, and Beyonce will rule the 2023 Grammy Awards when they’re handed out on Sunday, February 5. That’s according to the combined predictions of thousands of Gold Derby users who have placed their bets here in our predictions center. Scroll down for our complete predictions by artist in 34 categories spanning multiple genres.
We’re betting on Adele to win four awards: Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance for “Easy on Me,” plus Best Pop Vocal Album for “30.” But that might not be all she wins. She’s also up for Best Music Film for her Emmy-winning TV special “Adele: One Night Only.” That category isn’t in our predictions center this year, but given her track record (she hasn’t lost a single Grammy in more than a decade), she could easily sweep that one up too.
We also think Lamar will win four times in a clean sweep of the rap field: Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “The Heart Part 5,” Best Melodic Rap Performance for “Die Hard,” and Best Rap Album for “Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers.” The Recording Academy loves Lamar, having already awarded him 14 times, though those victories have been relegated to the rap and music video fields, never in the general field.
Beyonce will win three awards that we’re predicting: Album of the Year for “Renaissance” (which would be her long-awaited first win in the category), Best R&B Performance for “Virgo’s Groove,” and Best R&B Song for “Cuff It.” If we’re right and she wins all three, she would tie conductor Georg Solti‘s all-time record of 31 career trophies. But that’s not all. Beyonce is also nominated in two dance/electronic categories that aren’t in our predictions center. If she wins those too, she’d soar ahead as the most awarded individual in Grammy history.
