Kendrick will likely sweep rap, with possibility of maybe category going elsewhere. He has rap album for sure, but the singles aren’t huge. There’s room for him to lose, but he’s also a namecheck winner. He’s won for Family Ties, King’s Dead, These Walls and I’d say those were more namecheck winners.
These Walls won over Glory and Only.
Alternative is likely going to be The Smile. It’s a fresh way to reward a 3-time winner, Radiohead. Big Thief are a close second. I’d say Arcade Fire are in. If Florence submits here, I think she could get nominated, but she doesn’t really have the Grammy fan-base that the others have. Big Thief got nominated when they were barely known, Radiohead…[Read more]
Here’s what I’m thinking for BNA, but still expecting some surprise. Muni Long is finally picking up steam. I think it’s between her, Zach Bryan or a surprise Black Country New Road win.
Black Country New Road
I brought up MUNA a long time ago. It definitely is giving the same vibe as Haim, Phoebe Bridgers, Courtney Barnett, Maggie Rogers. I would love it if they actually won too, but look at the other artists I mentioned and their Grammy track records… I do think if any year, it’s this year they could pull it off though!
People are definitely underestimating Brandi a bit. I think these are your firm top 7…
Then the other 1-3 nominations (depending if there’s 8 or 10) are a complete toss-up. I would guess:
The Big Thief situation has left them in a tricky position. They’re topping all of the best of the year so far lists, but then the Israel show back and forth is a bad look for their fanbase. This isn’t to say if the show they are doing is right or wrong, but more to do with their response to both putting the show on and then cancelling. Their…[Read more]

Quinton Brunson is the potential surprise winner. There is a lot of passion for her and the show. It’s being treated like ABC’s prized show and Disney will put some money behind it. It’s definitely going to pick up buzz over the summer on Disney+. I could see some of the supporting cast even getting in. Jean Smart is definitely the frontrunner,…[Read more]
Rolling Stone calling Tate McRae an “algorithmic pop girl” is kind of spot on… I think her commercial success could get her in, but there’s a lot of pop music that is very disposable and the Grammy’s have never gone for that unless they have a major breakthrough. I honestly can’t hum along to any of her songs, there’s nothing memorable. abcdefu…[Read more]
This really feels like a year someone random wins, like if Arooj Aftab was nominated this year instead of last she could. Tate McCrae could be our Meghan Trainor though just as easily…
Lots of Conan Gray talk and I just don’t see it. It’s been years trying, it would be like Ava Max getting in suddenly. It’s not happening, if people didn’t vote…[Read more]
I’ve been doing my digging into him. No major red flags and was quite outspoken about BLM in 2020 on Twitter.
I also feel the same way about Anitta… I don’t see her happening, but it’s a quieter year and she definitely could.
This is my current prediction. I think Tate McRae now stands a better chance with the full album coming out and continuing to be bubbling under achieving a bigger commercial success, while GAYLE had one massive hit that disappeared quickly and a boring EP. I feel there are one or two artists that could pop up over the summer that could bump a few…[Read more]
I think Adele definitely stands a chance, but if there’s any year for her to not sweep, it’s this year. I maintain that there is zero urgency to vote for Adele, as well as Silk Sonic. There are zero guarantees for the Grammys now. Look at The Weeknd snub two years ago and Jon Batiste’s win this year. Adele’s album has all but disappeared and I…[Read more]
Someone has to convince Florence’s team to go Alternative. It would be between her and Big Thief this year with The Smile and Arcade Fire as the safe back-ups. Pop will leave her empty -handed and I don’t think her songs are heavy enough to win Rock Performance or Song.
There’s going to be a big push to give Kendrick AOTY. If the Grammys go with Adele it will not be good for either Adele or the Grammys and I do believe they both know this. Adele won’t campaign hard, she literally broke her Grammy and devoted her whole speech to Beyonce last time. I feel she’ll be embarrassed to win over Kendrick this year. This…[Read more]
There are a lot of other contenders in other genres than pop and R&B. Many of these are artists that have submitted multiple times already and were overlooked. Of these I think only really Muni Long and Anitta really stand a chance with Dove, Tate, Lauren and Gayle as possibilities, but they are really the type of forgettable radio pop that the…[Read more]
