Album of the Year - Kendrick Lamar - 'To Pimp A Butterfly'
Though the odds say Taylor Swift should be walking away with the accolade here, we're going to take a little bit of a riskier approach and go for Kendrick Lamar and his critically acclaimed LP. If we're looking at overall quality of music throughout the entire LP - as we should be - Lamar wins by a mile.
Song of the Year - Taylor Swift - 'Blank Space'
If she doesn't take Album of the Year she'll certainly be up there for Best Song and what it all comes down to here is songwriting. Swift is amongst the best pop and country performers who write their own music and so she should be rewarded accordingly here.
Record of the Year - Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars - 'Uptown Funk'
Taking everything into account for this category including writing, performance and production as well a sthe finished product, surely one of the biggest songs of not only the past year but the past decade has to be the winner here.
Best New Artist - James Bay
He's probably the nominee with the most buzz excluding Meghan Trainor and definitely more deserving. Tori Kelly would shock many but is also worthy of the gong here, but she's not yet had a huge moment in the world of music so her Grammy win could be kept shelved for another year.
Best Pop Solo Performance - The Weeknd - 'Can't Feel My Face'
Ed Sheeran has got to be close to winning here, but Thr Weeknd has really done some incredible things over the last 12 months. Delivering such a song to the mainstream in his unique way is something that deserves a lot of praise and what better way to give it or show it than with the Grammy here?
Best Pop Duo/Group Performance - Taylor Swift feat. Kendrick Lamar - 'Bad Blood'
Two of the biggest stars of the Grammys this year and as if by fate, the pair came together for an exciting collaboration. There are really no other contenders - these two HAVE to take it.
Best Music Film - Amy Winehouse - 'Amy'
A gorgeous documentary which brings the life of the troubled world famous superstar to the screen, allowing a no-holds-barred look into her life and delving deeper into the meaning behind her lyrics. Amy is a rough ride but a necessary one for the fans who want to find something which allows them to finally understand the woman Winehouse was.
