It’s that time of year again, “Music’s Biggest Night”, The 55th Annual Grammys. Tune in on Sunday February 10th 8/7c on CBS to watch as the music artists you know and love receive recognition for their achievements as of this past year. Us here at WeKnowTheDJ.com are avid followers of these capable musicians and have provided a few predictions (hopes/wishes) as to who might snag the gold-plated gramophone trophy for a few of the most popular categories.

 

Best New Artist

Choosing from a list of five very talented new artists, the two that stand out the most are, fun. and Frank Ocean. For an easy pick, fun. could take home the award solely based on their phenomenal performance on the music charts. Six weeks on Billboard Hot 100 and a song that was 3rd best selling (digital song) of 2012. However, we’ll put our money on the R&B man, Frank Ocean. He brings a fresh kick into his genre that follows previous recipients of this award such as Bon Iver.

 

Album of the Year

With five hopefuls to take away the award for this category, we have our bets on a close cut between, “Channel Orange” by Frank Ocean, “Babel” by Mumford & Sons or “Some Nights” by fun. Having produced a few hits off of their album, fun. is an easy candidate for the win but they won’t be a match to the variation of genres and the vocal delivery off of Frank Ocean’s “Channel Orange”. However, with some hesitation, Mumford & Sons’ “Babel” could take the win with their rock-based album, a genre that has been a Grammy favorite throughout the years.

 

Record of the Year

From a list of some the greatest hits of the year, it’s likely the anthem to most people’s heartbreaks this past year, “Somebody that I used to know” by Gotye, will take the win Sunday night. Although, Gotye does has some stiff competition with an already two-time Grammy winner, Kelly Clarkson, opposing him. Her record “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You),” is her third No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. While both hits play off a similar breakup theme, Kelly might just snag this win thanks to the catchy, up-beat rhythm and definite vocal strengths.

 

Song of the Year

With some overlap from the nominees of Record of the Year, this category has a range of up-beat sounds to some slow and smooth rhythms. “We Are Young” by fun. and its incorporation of indie pop, alternative pop and power pop could very easily lead the way to the win for song of the year. But nobody can forget the song that even your grandmother knows the lyrics to. The flirtatious best pop song of last year “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen deserves some serious recognition for its viral domination in 2012.
