56th Annual Grammy Awards Winner Predictions!

Hello everyone,

Award season is finally upon us, music and movie bloggers are getting ready to review the biggest award shows of the season. I am certainly very excited and I have a feeling this year’s Grammys will be outstanding. Two years ago I started a tradition to share my Grammy Awards winner predictions. I am proud to say that for the past two years, I managed to be 95% right about the winners. However, this year felt more challenging than the previous years, we have many outstanding musicians that are nominated. However, I had to take a deep breath, sit down, do my research, sip tea and make my decisions. My choices were based on the following factors: 1) Record/single sales 2) Billboard charts success 3)YouTube success.

Get ready because the list is long!

Enjoy and feel free to share any predictions you might have.
