Grammys 2015 – Complete Nominations List

As many people know, the Grammy’s are the biggest night in music and they are being held tonight! I personally can’t wait to watch the red carpet and see some of the catastrophes. I believe that Katy Perry will have something weird on, just a weird prediction. Taylor Swift will wear either a dark blue or a white, and then Justin Bieber will not even be there. Some of my predictions.

Last year I put together a list of who I wanted to win, who I thought was going to win, and who actually won. So right now I will pot all of the nominations, and predict who will win verse who I want to win! The bold will be who I think will win, and the italics will be who I want to win. Last year I did terrible, here’s to hoping I do better this year!

I also didn’t post every category because I know nothing about Latin music, contemporary music, or anything like that, sorry guys.

Album of the Year:
Beyonce: Beyonce
Pharrell: Girl
Ed Sheeran: X
Beck: Morning Phase
Sam Smith: In the Lonely Hour

I love Ed, I think that Ed deserves to win every single award that he is up for but the Grammy’s really love Pharrell. So my pick would be for Ed but I think that Pharrell will win for some strange reason.

Record of the Year:
Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX, “Fancy”
Sia, “Chandelier”
Sam Smith, “Stay With Me (Darkchild Version)”
Taylor Swift, “Shake It Off”
Meghan Trainor, “All About That Bass”

I have a weird soft spot for Meghan Trainor, I truly believe that she is incredible talented. I think that her sophomore album will probably show more of that than her most recent one. She can sing and will blow people’s minds one day. Sia will probably win though because her voice is insane and “Chandelier” is a really incredible song. So if either win I will be extremely happy.

Song of the Year
Meghan Trainor – “All About That Bass”
Sia – “Chandelier”
Taylor Swift – “Shake It Off”
Sam Smith – “Stay With Me (Darkchild Version)”
Hozier – “Take Me to Church”

Hozier will most likely not win, I am aware of that but his voice is absolutely insane. I love ‘Take Me To Church” so much I would listen to that and “Uptown Funk” on repeat for days. I am giving this one to Sia though. Honestly, I don’t care who wins this category because I like them all, I just hope Sam Smith doesn’t take it home, can’t stand him.

Best New Artist
Bastille
Iggy Azalea
Brandy Clark
HAIM
Sam Smith

Can’t lie I am not a huge Iggy fan of Iggy’s music but she deserves to win. She has dealt with people hating on her for absolutely no reason other than the fact she is a white, female rapper from Australia. I must say that I do like her during interviews so she seems fun.

Best Pop Vocal Album
Coldplay, Ghost Stories
Miley Cyrus, Bangerz
Ariana Grande, My Everything
Katy Perry, Prism
Ed Sheeran, x
Sam Smith, In the Lonely Hour

Alright, so I love Bangerz, I think that album was off the chain weird and incredible. Some of Miley’s songs were so heartfelt and incredible, can’t get it enough of it. Do I think the Miley has all the votes to win it? No, probably not, but she was nominated so that is awesome. I think that Sam Smith is going to win because everyone is obsessed with him, I personally hope he fades out after this Grammy hooplah ends.

Best Pop Solo Performance
John Legend, “All of Me (Live Version)”
Sia, “Chandelier”
Sam Smith, “Stay With Me”
Taylor Swift, “Shake It Off”
Pharrell Williams, “Happy”

John Legend deserves this award, the end.

Best Pop Duo/Group Performance
Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX, “Fancy”
Coldplay, “A Sky Full of Stars”
A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, “Say Something”
Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj, “Bang Bang”
Katy Perry feat. Juicy J, “Dark Horse”

I feel like this is going to Iggy’s year to win all the awards, unless she is against Sam Smith then he will win over her. I will say that “Say Something” deserves this Grammy. That song is the saddest song in the world. I could be in the best mood, hear it and then start to cry. That is what music is about right? It is supposed to move you to your core. So I am really rooting that A Great Big World will pull this one off!

Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album
Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, Cheek to Cheek
Annie Lennox, Nostalgia
Barry Manilow, Night Songs
Johnny Mathis, Sending You a Little Christmas
Barbra Streisand, Partners

I an completely educated in this department. I know Babs is incredible so she will probably win but I love Annie Lennox’s voice, so I am hoping that she wins!

Best Country Album:
Dierks Bentley, Riser
Eric Church, The Outsiders
Lee Ann Womack, The Way I’m Living
Brandy Clark, 12 Stories
Miranda Lambert, Platinum

If Miranda doesn’t win this category I am going to start a riot. Just be prepared for that.

Best Country Solo Performance
Eric Church, “Give Me Back My Hometown”
Hunter Hayes, “Invisible”
Miranda Lambert, “Automatic”
Carrie Underwood, “Something in the Water”
Keith Urban, “Cop Car”

Carrie Underwood deserves this award, she could out sing everyone in this category but my only worry is people against religion. You know she is a very religious woman, the song is extremely religious, I feel like a lot of people would shy away because apparently its controversial. Miranda, you got this one in the bag…I would kind of love Eric Church to win though, I love his music. Honestly, whoever wins this I would be happy!

Best Country Duo/Group Performance
The Band Perry, “Gentle On My Mind”
Miranda Lambert with Carrie Underwood, “Somethin’ Bad”
Little Big Town, “Day Drinking”
Tim McGraw feat. Faith Hill, “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s”
Keith Urban feat. Eric Church, “Raise ‘Em Up”

Miranda and Carrie better win, or again I am going to riot.

Best Country Song
Kenny Chesney, “American Kids”
Miranda Lambert, “Automatic”
Eric Church, “Give Me Back My Hometown”
Glen Campbell, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You”
Tim McGraw feat. Faith Hill, “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s”

So I really love the Eric Church song “Give Me Back My Hometown” I feel like a lot of people can relate to it. Tim McGraw is basically a country king so I think that he will take this one home.

Best Urban Contemporary Album:
Jhene Aiko, Sail Out
Beyonce, Beyonce
Chris Brown, X
Mali Music, Mail Is
Pharrell Williams, G I R L

I am saying Pharrell will take this one home. Anyone could win other than Chris Brown. Remember that time Chris Brown beat Rihanna before the Grammy’s then wasn’t allowed there for like three years? Yeah, I do too, fuck Chris Brown.

Best R&B Performance
Beyonce feat. JAY Z, “Drunk in Love”
Chris Brown feat. Usher & Rick Ross, “New Flame”
Jennifer Hudson feat. R. Kelly, “It’s Your World”
Ledisi, “Like This”
Usher, “Good Kisser”

I hated this song but I don’t like any other songs nominated. I mean I guess I hate this song the least out of all of them. I would love to see Usher win but “Good Kisser” was a truly horrible song.

Best Rock Song
Paramore, “Ain’t It Fun”
Beck, “Blue Moon”
The Black Keys, “Fever”
Ryan Adams, “Gimme Something Good”
Jack White, “Lazaretto”

Paramore deserves this! They are a band that went from having a generally small following to being one of the biggest bands in the world. Hayley Williams is perfect, and this song was everywhere. Good luck Paramore!

Best Rap Album
Eminem, The Marshall Mathers LP 2
Childish Gambino, Because the Internet
Iggy Azalea, The New Classic
Common, Nobody’s Smiling
Schoolboy Q, Oxymoron
Wiz Khalifa, Black Hollywood

I would say Eminem deserves to win this but his new music is absolutely horrible, terrible, no good music. Childish Gambino has a very different way about him so I respect his originality. Iggy will win this though and everyone is going to lose their minds.

Best Rap Solo Performance
Childish Gambino – “3005″
Drake – “0 to 100/The Catch Up”
Eminem – “Rap God”
Kendrick Lamar “i”
Lecrae – “All I Need Is You”

I love Kendrick Lamar, I am all in with him on this one.

Best Rap/Sung Collaboration
Common Featuring Jhené Aiko, “Blak Majik”
Eminem feat. Rihanna, “The Monster
I Love Makonnen feat. Drake, “Tuesday”
Schoolboy Q feat. BJ The Chicago Kid, “Studio”
Kanye West & Charlie Wilson, “Bound 2″

Eminem and Rihanna is always gold, Common could win it though, I could see him winning this. If Bound 2 wins I am going to die laughing though. Go Ri though, Rihanna is my girl!

Best Rap Song
Nicki Minaj, “Anaconda”
Kanye West & Charlie Wilson, “Bound 2″
Kendrick Lamar, “I”
Wiz Khalifa, “We Dem Boyz”
Drake – “0 to 100/The Catch Up”

I am rooting for Nicki Minaj just because that song is so weird and bizarre, I like weird and bizarre. Kendrick should win though, I really hope that he does.
