Grammy Awards: Who’s Gonna Take Home the Trophies?

The music awards of all music awards will be handed out to a handful of talented artists this Sunday at the 60th Grammy Awards in New York. And it’s bound to be a show to remember, being an anniversary ceremony. So set your DVRs, invite your squad and get your popcorn ready for all the fashion faux-pas, flashy performances, teary thank you speeches and scandalous snubs.

Now before any good awards show, it’s good form to write down a list of predictions. There’s so much great music to recognize, we’re having a hard time picking our faves. We’re giving it a go anyway for some of the big categories. Play along with us!
