Grammy Predictions – Who Will Be Nominated for a 2014 Grammy Award?
According to USA Today, “The Recording Academy received a record 22,000 submissions, 17,000 of which were deemed eligible and sent in ballots to about 12,000 voting members.” Still, experts are already predicting who could take home a Grammy Award in January 2014.
Billboard, for example, published an article called Grammy Predictions 2014: Who Will Land The Major Nominations? yesterday. For “Album of the Year,” it predicted that several performers at the Grammy nomination concert would also be on the list of Grammy nominees. Taylor Swift’s Red, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ The Heist, Bruno Mars’ Unorthodox Jukebox and Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience are expected to be nominated for the 2014 Grammy Award.
Grammy performer Lorde likely won’t be ignored, though. Lorde will be performing Royals at the 2013 Grammy nominations concert … and the song will likely also be on the list of 2014 Grammy nominees for “Record of the Year.” Fellow Grammy performer Katy Perry could also be nominated for her single “Roar.”
For “Song of the Year” and “Best New Artist,” we have some overlap. On the song side, Lorde could make the cut again with “Royals,” while Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” could also sneak in, along with Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive.” Meanwhile, Lorde, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Imagine Dragons could be crowned as the best news kids on the block.
For the full list of 2014 Grammy nominees, though, be sure to tune into the 2013 Grammy nominations concert tonight.
