    Hello to you all

    .

    As with the Pop, Rap and R&B fields, we’re having the prediction game for Rock and Alternative here.

     

    As you probably already know, you are allowed to pick up to 6 entries per category. The sixth entry gives consideration for 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:

    Best Rock Performance

    Best Metal Performance

    Best Rock Song

    Best Rock Album

    Best Alternative Music Album

     

    Predictions must be in this format:

    Nominee(s) A – Work

    Nominee(s) B – Work

    Nominee(s) C – Work

    Nominee(s) D – Work

    Nominee(s) E – Work

    (Nominee(s) F – Work (in case of a tie))

     

    1 post per user. If you must modify your thoughts, edit the post. Do not double post.

    The game closes November 19th, PST. Enjoy!
