    Can’t get over how great of a song “Getting Older” is. evermore would still be my personal pic for AOTY but Happier Than Ever would be a very worthy winner as well.

    Unfortunaly, I don’t think either will win.

    It’s time to let go of this endless summer afternoon

    It feels like evermore was added at the last minute to help split the pop vote, otherwise Olivia would feel like a lock and perhaps they wanted to help Tony and Gaga.

    I think the upcoming winners for the 64th Grammys might be similar to the 58th Grammys last 2016 or even last year.

    58th Grammys GF official winners

    AOTY – 1989
    ROTY – Uptown Funk
    SOTY – Thinking Out Loud
    BNA – Meghan Trainor

    My projected GF winners for the 64th Grammys

    AOTY – evermore
    ROTY – Leave The Door Open
    SOTY – Happier Than Ever
    BNA – Olivia Rodrigo

    Evermore literally only got a nomination last minute and missed everywhere, she’s gonna need a miracle to even come top 3.

    Her, Doja, Lil Nas X, Kanye, and Bieber have no shot. The other 5 I could see different scenarios for them pulling it off

    AOTY is a total toss up this year. A lot of these albums have strengths and weaknesses.

    H.E.R. – I actually have H.E.R. winning this year as I think she will get almost all of the non-pop vote that Tony doesn’t get. I find her songwriting kind of boring but she is a seriously skilled guitarist. I think her musicality will matter to voters who play instruments.  She is also definitely on every voters radar as she is nominated every single year. Voters have proved they like her when they gave her SOTY. Her weakness is that she has never had a real hit or a catchy song that will be in voters heads. Also, the acclaim for her and her guitar playing is greater than the acclaim for her album. She may lose some votes to Jon and Tony, but really nobody is wasting their vote on Jon.

    Gaga & Tony Bennet – This album has the strongest narrative. A very elderly star taking his final bow, a cute and unlikely cross generational friendship, etc. Due to Gaga and Tony’s difference in age and genre, they have the advantage of being able to draw votes from all generations and both pop and non-pop voters. Still, these are all cover songs and not originals. Also, I don’t think very many people actually got a lot of listens out of this album. There are tons of covers of show-tuney jazz that are equally as good, they just don’t have Tony and Lady Gaga’s name on them. This is my second most likely pick.

    Olivia – Grammys like to award the hot new pop star. But still this seems TOO bubble gum even for the Grammys tastes. She will lose votes to the Taylor/Billie/Olivia/Doja/Biebs/Lil Nas X pop split, and I just think most voters will go for something a little more serious than this. If AOTY does go to a pop album, I have it going to Olivia

    Billie – Her Sophomore album was better than her debut but not nearly as commercially succesful. The Billie hype seems to be dying down and she’s not the hot newcomer anymore. Not sure the voters care about her anymore. Also suffers from pop split.

    Taylor – Obviously voters have showed her love for years. Voters may feel she’s already been over awarded especially considering Evermore is very similar to Folklore and didn’t make quite as big of a splash. Also suffers from pop split. I won’t be shocked if she or Billie win, but I also don’t think its likely.

    Bieber, Lil Nas X, Kanye, Doja and Jon are just not gonna happen. Kanye just nuked any chances he had with his recent antics. Loved Planet Her but it’s just not Doja’s year this year.

    I give H.E.R. or Tony/Gaga a combined 60% odds of winning. I give Taylor or Billie a combined 30% odds of winning. I give all the other artists a combined 10% odds of winning.

    I would love more than anything for Taylor to snatch a fourth album of the year in front of that psychotic man child KANYE West’s face! That would be ICONIC! He has seriously lost his damn mind!

    Congratulations to Grammy Winners: Jazmine Sullivan, Doja Cat, SZA and Olivia Rodrigo!

    Lol I would hate to see Taylor win a 4th AOTY when tons of deserving artists have zero. But I admit seeing Kanye’s reaction would be hilarious.

    i know she has no chance in hell of winning but it would be a moment. I would love to see his arrogant ass try to snatch Taylor’s mic again.

    Not to kill the dream, but I highly doubt Kanye is attending

    I don’t see Ye attending and if he did I don’t see him being allowed in for everything he’s been doing lately.

    I think AOTY is between evermore and Happier Than Ever.

    evermore will take votes from pop, rock, alternative, country, americana, folk, since there’s no country/americana album nominated in AOTY.

    Kanye is definitely going to show up. He has been everywhere recently, making appearances at Paris fashion week, Super Bowl, going out to parties and restaurants and clubs, etc. He’s not in Wyoming mode, he wants to be seen and he’s too big of a narcissist to not show up when he’s an AOTY nominee. And pretty sure every nominee and AOTY nominee is invited, or it least it would be extremely strange and awkward to not invite an AOTY nominee. And why would they turn him away when him misbehaving and causing a scene would be the best thing that could possibly happen for the Grammy ratings?

    evermore didn’t even make it to the initial top 8 on a straight vote lol.
