    Hi All,

    The Grammy nominations come out in less 4 days and like the Pop prediction game we are going to have the same for the Urban fields.

    You are allowed to pick up to 6 entries per category in the case of a tie. If you predict an entire category accurately you will get 50 points extra. (75 points if you predict everything in a 6-man lineup). Each correct prediction is 10 points per category.

    We are predicting these 8 categories:

    R&B Performance
    R&B Song
    R&B Album
    Urban Contemporary Album

    Rap Performance
    Rap Song
    Rap/Sung Performance
    Rap Album

    Rules:

    1. Please list your predictions in this format:

    Artist(s) – Song

    2. Only 1 Post per entry. Do not double post simply edit/modify your original post.

    3. Prediction game will be closed November 19th at 9PM EST.

    You don’t have to predict 6 if you don’t want to. It’s just an option.

    We have had 6 nominees in categories before in Rap within the past 5 years in Rap Performance, Rap Album etc. so is not really “impossible”. If they want to nominate 6 they can.

    So, the standard amount of nominees are still 5. There can be a number of 6, based off voting, correct?

    ^ yes the standard amount is 5. But in the case that a category supposedly has 6 slots at least you would be able to get points for it.

    Basically the 6th slot is just an alternate. You don’t need to predict one if you don’t want to.
