The official nominations for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards were announced earlier today and while none of their picks were major surprises, artists like Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd are looking to win big when the awards are announced next year on February 15th, 2016. And if reading the list of nominations has your scratching your head, wondering who will pick up the W for each particular category, don’t worry! We have the work cut out for you as we put together our list of predictions for some of Grammy‘s biggest categories.
Check out our predictions for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards below.
In the past few hours the winners were released for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, and already a lot of disagreement is surrounding some of the picks. While music is subjective in many ways, you of course can never make everyone happy. However, this year seems to be especially bad. Personally, I did not agree with almost all albums that were given a Grammy this year, so I was curious to see what the top critics in music thought.
You probably thought Kanye West was being funny and joking when he stepped on stage while Beck received his Grammy for “Album of the Year”, well guess again. Speaking with E! after the Grammys, Kanye shared his opinion about Grammys and their selections this year.
Watch as Kanye West gives an emotional performance at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards of his Paul McCartney assisted ballad ‘Only One’ (a song from the perspective of his late mother Dr. Donda West about Kanye and his daughter North). It was just a few years ago in 2008, as Kanye gave a memorable performance of his Late Registration track ‘Hey Mama’ after the death of Dr. West, and now the man who has boycotted the Grammys the past few years just gave them another unforgettable moment. Check out the touching performance below.
There was a lot of uncertainty as to who would take home the award for the “Best Rap Album” at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards today, especially since the disappointment in the rap community when white rapper Macklemore beat out Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West’s critically acclaimed albums. Would it be the talented veteran Eminem (who has won a number of Grammys in the past)? Would it be Iggy Azalea (who like Macklemore, is white and considered more pop than rap by many)? Or would it be one of the Grammy’s newcomers, like Childish Gambino’s Because the Internet or SchoolBoy Q’s Oxymoron. Well now we know, as this year Eminem’s album Marshall Mathers LP 2 took home the Grammy.
The 57th Annual Grammy Awards are just around the corner, and because (especially in the hip-hop world) things may not go as we hope, we want to submit our picks now. But we won’t be suggesting WHO WILL bring home the most prestigious awards in music but rather WHO SHOULD. Check out our picks below of what artists and albums should win at the Grammys this year.
Earlier today the nominations were announced for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. As with many years, there were noticeable snubs that left critics and fans scratching their heads. While many used to praise the Grammys for their ability to reward quality music versus music that merely sells well, in recent years the committee’s selections seem especially poor (especially in the category of rap). Why the selections are not the best this year is for a different conversation, however we have compiled a list of the five biggest snubs of today’s nominations.
There are just 15 days (September 30th) until the eligibility period ends for the 57th annual Grammy awards. In what looks to be an arguably week year for critically acclaimed albums, and what has also been the year for surprise releases, some of your favorite artists could still swoop in and steal the most prestigious award in music. We certainly wouldn’t rule it out.
If you are Kanye West, where do you store your 21 Grammys (the most for anyone that young)? An office, living room, maybe even if its own trophy room? Apparently not, according to his wife, Kim Kardashian-West, Ye stores them anyway in his sock drawer. Take that Grammys.
