    Hopefully Florence + The Machine gets some recognition for anything she does next year.

    Of those, here are a few I think could get in for Album of the Year, or at least gain a few nominations:

     

    Drake – So far, the top selling non-Christmas album of the next Grammy eligibility period, and the reviews are great. Could be a lock for AOTY next time around if it weren’t for the incomprehensible snub for Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

    The Black Keys – Album of the Year may have gone to Arcade Fire, beating out Eminem, Lady Antebellum, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry.  But it says a lot that Arcade Fire lost in the alternative category to the Black Keys, who have been gaining a lot of momentum. They have a good shot for some general field nominations next year.

    Florence + The Machine – The reviews are great, the sales are strong.

    Miranda Lambert – Great reviews, strong sales. If the Grammys get back into the pattern of nominating a country album for AOTY, this seems to be the frontrunner for that slot.

    Tom Waits will have a hard time getting in the general field categories, but he could have some luck in the genre-specific categories. The reviews for his new album are very strong.  However, this has been veteran Waits’ highest-charting album, and the reviews are great. Might sneak into the general field somehow, but the last few years hasn’t been as welcoming to veteran acts there.

    Coldplay could be a strong contender next year.  It could have a hard time sneaking in AOTY though, as its sales, reviews, and singles haven’t been as strong as their last album, Viva la Vida, which was nominated. However, it is still one of the highest-selling albums released since October.  But if X&Y, which had stronger sales, stronger reviews, and bigger hit singles couldn’t get nominated, Mylo Xyloto could have a tough time.

    Rihanna – She managed to get in this year for Loud, she could start to be a general field regular. If not, she will still get a few nominations in other categories.

    Mary J. Blige – Good reviews, strong sales.

    Feist – Great reviews, strong sales, but could be outshadowed by a number of other female vocalists.

    Kelly Clarkson – Strong sales, pretty good reviews, but probably not enough of each to push it into the general field.

    Amy Winehouse – it’s no Back to Black, but they still love Amy.  If “Body and Soul” wins this year, we will know how much they love her.

    The Roots – Great reviews, needs more sales.

    Ryan Adams

    Bjork

    Peter Gabriel

    Toby Keith – a big seller, and the strongest reviews of his career, but Toby Keith doesn’t strike me as an incredibly Grammy-friendly artist.  Plus, there are other country artists fighting for that top spot.

     

    Some 2012 releases that could be contenders, depending if they make the Sept. 30 cutoff:

     

    Adam Lambert – pop field contender
    Aerosmith – depending on reviews/sales
    Christina Aguilera
    Dr. Dre
    Green Day
    – I think 21st Century Breakdown, despite not being the smash that American Idiot was, still had a decent shot in AOTY.  If their next album is any better than 21st…, they could
    Kid Cudi
    Madonna – If sales are strong
    Missy Elliott
    MGMT
    – If they release an album with more appeal like Oracular Spectacular
    Ne-Yo
    No Doubt
    Esparanza Spalding
    – Will she be the next Adele, or the next Macy Gray? History tells us that most Best New Artist winners don’t fare as well years down the road, so the odds aren’t necessarily in her favor, but if she does release a good album, she’s already got the eyes watching her.
    Bruce Springsteen – the Grammys love the Boss, however, in recent years, some really good albums have been looked over for AOTY. But you can be guaranteed that he will be getting some noms in the rock field.
    The Strokes – Since their 2001 masterpiece Is This It, the Strokes’ albums have been on a downward slope. Perhaps they will spike again in creativity, and garner some buzz a la Arcade Fire.

    I really hope that Lana del Rey and Azealia Banks make some noise and are recognized by the Grammys next year. Otherwise, I’m crossing my fingers for Florence. Drake and Coldplay would be very deserving GF nods as well. Still way too early though haha

    These 2010 releases will certainly get some nominations for 2013 Grammys:

    Coldplay’s MYLO XYLOTO 

    Drake’s TAKE CARE

    The Black Keys’ EL CAMINO 

    All of them have a decent shot at some GF nominations or at least nominations/wins in their genre fields.

    “Rolling in the Deep” was released around this time last year. Now it looks like a sure bet to sweep the Grammys. We could already have the next big winner. So, no, it is never too early.

    Yeah I love “Safe & Sound” by Taylor. If thats all she puts out next year, than I could see possible GF nods for it and it would make an excellent winner in motion picture song.
    And I hope Ashanti takes Rap/Sung
