The final announcements and touches are being put into place for the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, the latest being that LL Cool J is going to be the first official host the show has had in seven years. Many music fans can't wait for the awards and are already making guesses about who's going to walk away a winner. Out of the four major categories, who's going to come out on top?
Record of the year
The nominees for the category are "Rolling in the Deep" by Adele, "The Cave" by Mumford & Sons, "Holocene" by Bon Iver, "Firework" by Katy Perry and "Grenade" by Bruno Mars . It's probably going to come down to "Firework" and "Rolling in the Deep." Chances are "Rolling in the Deep" is going to be the winner due to its massive appeal with a variety of people.
Album of the Year
" Born This Way" by Lady Gaga, "Wasting Light" by the Foo Fighters, "21" by Adele, "Loud" by Rihanna, and "Doo-Wops & Hooligans" by Bruno Mars are the nominees. It's likely going to come down to "21" and "Born This Way." While many are guessing "21" is going to take it, "Born This Way" could very well be the surprise win.
Song of the year
" Grenade," "The Cave," "Holocene," "Rolling in the Deep" and "All of the Lights" are the nominees. It's very likely "Rolling in the Deep" is going to take the category.
Best New Artist
The categories' nominees are Bon Iver, J.Cole, Nicki Minaj, Skrillex, and The Band Perry. It'll probably come down to Nicki Minaj and The Band Perry. Between the two, based on past winners, the likely guess would be The Band Perry. However, considering Minaj's massive success, she could definitely win.
