This Sunday is the Grammy Awards, so get out your dancing shoes and get ready for the musical-TV event of the year. Leading the full night of performers is Adele, returning for the first time since undergoing throat surgery. Her impact on this year’s Grammy awards is great because of her six nominations including all the major awards. Also, The Beach Boys will be making a comeback appearance on the telecast.
I’m personally looking forward to the performances by Bruce Springsteen, Glen Campbell with The Band Perry and Blake Shelton, and Tony Bennett with Carrie Underwood. Other performers include Paul McCartney, Coldplay, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Taylor Swift.
As for the awards, here are some predictions:
Record of the Year: I don’t see how this award goes to anyone else but Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.” It was the number one song of the year and launched Adele into complete stardom.
Album of the Year: Again, Adele should be taking home this award with the outstanding “21” album. She’s up against some other heavy-weights such as Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” and Rihanna’s “Loud,” but this night will be Adele’s to shine.
Song of the Year: It’s tough for me to pick anyone but Adele, but if she’s going to lose one of the main three awards, it’ll probably be this category. In that case, I’ll pick “All of the Lights” written by Kanye West and company.
Best New Artist: Here’s a tricky category with plenty of talent. I would expect Bon Iver to win this award, but other newcomers The Band Perry and Nicki Minaj could easily snag the trophy as well. And wouldn’t we all be surprised if J. Cole or Skrillex wins.
