This Is Who Should Win At The Grammys According To 20somethings

The Grammys — the music industry’s biggest night. A night when muscians come together and revel in the glory that is them. There are glam sessions, red carpets and after-parties galore. For the regular peasant like us though, it’s a night to stay in and pig out while you simultaneously live tweet your thoughts on outfits and acceptance speeches. On either side of the spectrum, the Grammy Awards are always a night to remember and recap the year in music.

Since everyone has their opinions on who will win this year, we’ve decided make our own predictions on winners from some of the top categories of the night. Leave your own predictions in the comments section below and let us know who you’ll be rooting for this year!

  

Record Of The Year:

A) Really Love – D’Angelo And The Vanguard

B) Uptown Funk – Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars

C) Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran

D) Blank Space – Taylor Swift

E) Can’t Feel My Face – The Weeknd

Our choice: E) Can’t Feel My Face – The Weeknd

This record might have been a bit overplayed (see our roundup of most overplayed tracks in 2015), but we’re definitely not complaining over here. The track captures the sheer talent of Abel’s vocals that really captivate the audience and bumps it from a great song into a Grammy worthy category. Whether it’s your first time or 100th time hearing this song, I think we can all agree it was the soundtrack of 2015.

Album Of The Year:

A) Sound & Color – Alabama Shakes

B) To Pimp A Butterfly – Kendrick Lamar

C) Traveller – Chris Stapleton

D) 1989 – Taylor Swift

E) Beauty Behind The Madness – The Weeknd

Our choice: B) To Pimp A Butterfly – Kendrick Lamar

This year we all saw very politically and racially charged issues come to light within our society. Kendrick Lamar used his musical talents to take center stage as he addressed these matters through his socially relevant lyrics and themes on this album. There’s no question about it, when it comes to music that defines pivotal moments in history, it deserves all the recognition it can attain.

Song Of The Year:

A) Alright – Kendrick Lamar

B) “Blank Space” – Taylor Swift

C) Girl Crush – Little Big Town

D) See You Again – Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth

E) Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran

Our choice: B) Blank Space – Taylor Swift

T.Swift was bigger than ever this year after she rounded up her girl gang, took on the world by storm and released her album “1989” which was a huge success. Not only do we love the song, but the video, which has over a billion views on YouTube, really shows an awesome kick ass, kinda psycho, man-eater side of Taylor that we actually really adore weirdly.

Best New Artist

A) Courtney Barnett

B) James Bay

C) Sam Hunt

D) Tori Kelly

E) Meghan Trainor

Our choice: E) Meghan Trainor

This pop powerhouse, wrote, recorded, performed and produced three independently released albums between ages 15 and 17.

She’s now 21 years old and just getting started. Anyone with young talent like this should be put in the spot light and kept there. You go girl!

Best Pop Solo Performance

A) Heartbeat Song – Kelly Clarkson

B) Love Me Like You Do – Ellie Goulding

C) Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran

D) Blank Space – Taylor Swift

E) Can’t Feel My Face – The Weeknd

Our choice: C) Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran

The song is full of love and the music video is breathtaking and timeless. There’s no doubt in our minds that the ever-talented Ed Sheeren deserves to win this category hands down.

Best Dance Recording

A) We’re All We Need – Above & Beyond feat. Zoë Johnston

B) Go – The Chemical Brothers

C) Never Catch Me – Flying Lotus Featuring Kendrick Lamar

D) Runaway (U & I) – Galantis

E) Where Are Ü Now – Skrillex And Diplo feat. Justin Bieber

Our choice: E) Where Are Ü Now – Skrillex And Diplo feat. Justin Bieber

This was an easy choice, because 1. this song will never ever get old and 2. I think this is the year that EVERYONE became a Belieber. Plus when you have the likes of Diplo and Skrillex producing a track for you, really can do no wrong.

Best R&B Performance:

A) If I Don’t Have You – Tamar Braxton

B) Rise Up – Andra Day

C) Breathing Underwater – Hiatus Kaiyote

D) Planes – Jeremih feat. J. Cole

E) Earned It (Fifty Shades Of Grey) – The Weeknd

Our choice: D) Planes – Jeremih feat. J. Cole

Jeremih has been a big part of R&B music for many years and well, a little slept on as well. He has been nominated many times through the years in the R&B category but this is his first Grammy nomination and we hope he takes home the gold.

Best Rap Album:

A) 2014 Forest Hills Drive – Cole

B) Compton – Dr. Dre

C) If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late – Drake

D) To Pimp A Butterfly – Kendrick Lamar

E) The Pinkprint – Nicki Minaj

Our choice: C) If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late – Drake

The success of so many of the songs from Drake’s album makes it a no brainer for us. But to top it all off this album wasn’t even an album — it was a mixtape! There was a lot of back and forth about which one it was and Drake put the speculation to rest at a concert saying, “Trust me, it’s just a mixtape, I’m still working on an album.”

Best Rap Song

A) All Day – Kanye West ft. Allan Kingdom

B) Alright – Kendrick Lamar

C) Energy – Drake

D) Glory – Common & John Legend

E) Trap Queen – Fetty Wap 

Our choice: E) Trap Queen – Fetty Wap

Gotta hand it to Fetty Wap on this one — he had one of the best songs of the year in the rap category and surpassed many people’s expectations of being a one-hit wonder. 2015 as a whole for him was a year of many hits and signs of many more to come.
