2016 Grammy Predictions


The Grammys are coming up on Monday, February 15 and this year’s show is going to be a big one.

Fan-favorites, Rihanna and Adele, both return to the Grammy stage with new music after a four-year dry spell. Teen-heartthrob-no-more, Justin Bieber will also perform along with industry heavyweights Taylor Swift, Pitbull, Lady Gaga (with a David Bowie tribute), Carrie Underwood and Kendrick Lamar, all of whom are nominated. The cast of the Broadway hit Hamilton will also take the stage (we didn’t include the category they’re nominated for, Best Musical Theatre Album, but we’re pretty sure they’re going to win, too).

But more importantly than those performing are the awards themselves. We rounded up the most coveted and most talked about titles and predicted (read as listed who we’re hoping for) who’s going to win.
