Grammy Award Predictions


WE ARE LISTENING TO KELLY CLARKSON. TONIGHT’S SHOW WILL HAVE A NEW HOST, THE SHOWDOWN BETWEEN TWO SINGING DIVAS. SENIOR EDITOR JOINS US WITH A RUNDOWN AND A FEW PREDICTIONS. WELCOME. LET’S TALK ABOUT THAT SHOWDOWN. WHEN THE NOMINATIONS CAME OUT, YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY A HUGE DAY. EVERYONE WAS TALKING ABOUT, IT’S ADELE VERSUS BEYONCE. TWO PEOPLE NOMINATED FOR VERY DIFFERENT REASONS AND I’M EXCITED TO SEE HOW THAT MATCHUP GOES DOWN. CAN WE PREDICT HOW THAT MATCHUP IS GOING TO GO? I KNOW THEY ARE UP AGAINST EACH OTHER IN SEVERAL CATEGORIES. THAT’S THE THING. THEY REPRESENT TWO VERY DIFFERENT THINGS. ADELE, SUCH A HUGE RECORD, 25, BROKE ALL THESE RECORD SALES THE MINUTE IT CAME OUT. REPRESENTS WHAT EVERYONE KNOWS, WHAT EVERYONE LOVES. SUCH A BIG, BLOCK BUSTER RECORD. BEYONCE ON THE OTHER HAND WAS SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT. SHOWCASED A DIFFERENT SIDE OF HERSELF. NEW GENERAS. SHE’S TALKING ABOUT INFIDELITY IN HER MARRIAGE, SO MANY THINGS WE HAVEN’T SEEN FROM BEYONCE YET. LET’S GO DOWN THE BIG CATEGORIES. BEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR? 25, SOLD 3 MILLION PLUS RECORDS IN THAT FIRST WEEK, WHICH IS UNHEARD OF EVEN WHEN PEOPLE BOUGHT ALBUMS, MUCH LESS WHEN THEY, IN 2015, WHEN IT CAME OUT. SO IF THE GRAMMYS WANT TO HONOR BLOCKBUSTER, THAT’S THE METHOD THEY’LL GO WITH, OR SOMEONE LIKE BEYONCE WHO REPRESENTS SOMETHING VERY DIFFERENT, SOMETHING, YOU KNOW, SHOWING DIVERSITY, REPRESENTING A NEW GROUP OF PEOPLE. I THINK IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHICH ONE THEY LEAN TOWARDS. I THINK IT WILL SAY A LOT. LET’S TALK ABOUT RECORD OF THE YEAR. RECORD OF THE YEAR, ONCE AGAIN, ADELE VERSUS BEYONCE, IS WHAT EVERYONE IS SAYING. IT’S HELLO, WHICH IS JUST THAT SONG THAT REMINDED US EXACTLY WHY WE LOVE ADELE. THOSE VOCALS, THAT CHORUS THAT HITS YOU IN THE HEART. AND BEYONCE WITH FORMATION, SOMETHING WE HAVEN’T SEEN FROM HER YET. REPRESENTED THIS MUCH MORE — SHE IS SASHA FIERCE, BUT IT WAS SO MUCH MORE FIERCE. I THINK IT HAS TO BE BETWEEN THOSE FOR SURE. OKAY, WHAT DO YOU PREDICT FOR SONG OF THE YEAR? SONG OF THE YEAR, WHICH IS MORE ABOUT THE SONG WRITERS, OF COURSE, A LOT OF PEOPLE, ONCE AGAIN, ARE SAYING THAT’S AN ADELE VERSUS BEYONCE. BOTH REPRESENT SOMETHING VERY DIFFERENT. BUT I THINK THE DARK HORSE HERE IS ACTUALLY GOING TO BE JUSTIN BIEBER WITH LOVE YOURSELF. ED SHEERAN WROTE A PORTION OF THAT SONG, DEFENDING HIS TITTED L WITH THINKING OUT LOUD LAST YEAR. IF THE GRAMMY’S, THEY LIKE ED SHEERAN, SO I THINK WE SHOULD WATCH OUT FOR BIEBER FOR SURE. ALL RIGHT, BEST NEW ARTIST. YEAH, BEST NEW ARTIST IS SUCH AN EXCITING CATEGORY. WE HAVE SOME PEOPLE WE WEREN’T EXPECTING TO SEE. CHANCE CHANCELLOR, FOR EXAMPLE, SOMEONE REACHED SO MANY PEOPLE. HE IS HUGE IN THE HIP HOP WORLD, BUT HE HASN’T RELEASED HIS DEBUT ALBUM YET. A BIG COUNTRY FAN, AND KELSEY IN THE COUNTRY WORLD, YOU KNOW, TWO PEOPLE, TWO AWESOME WOMEN WHO ARE BEING REPRESENTED IN A CATEGORY THAT DOESN’T HAVE SO MUCH FEMALE REPRESENTATION. AND AREN’T MARIN AND ALICIA KEYS GOING FORMER PERFORMING TOGETHER? SO MANY COOL MATCHUPS FOR SURE. IS THERE A PARTICULAR MATCHUP YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO? WITH THE PRINCE AND GEORGE MICHAEL TRIBUTES. THEY ARE NOT TELLING US WHO WILL BE DOING THE TRIBUTE. ADELE IS A HUGE GEORGE MICHAEL FAN. I DON’T KNOW IF PEOPLE KNOW THIS. I WOULD BE CURIOUS IF SHE WHIPS SOMETHING UP. MUSIC VIDEO. A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK WHEN YOU LOOK AT A MUSIC VIDEO, THAT IS AN IRRELEVANT PLATFORM AT THIS POINT IN AGE THAT WE’RE IN. MUSIC VIDEO REALLY NEEDS TO SAY SOMETHING. I KNOW I’M SAYING LIKE A BROKEN RECORD, BUT BEYONCE SHOWCASED NEW ORLEANS IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT. TALKED ABOUT TOPICS LOOK POLICE BRUTALITY AND IMPORTANT RACE ISSUES AND DIVERSE ISSUES. THE GRAMMY’S LOVE OKAY GO. OKAY GO WON IT IN THE PAST, AND THEY ALWAYS BRING SOMETHING REALLY EXCITING, REALLY FUN, AND YOU KNOW, IF THEY WANT TO HONOR SOMETHING REALLY COOL, VISUALLY ORIENTED, THEY’LL GO WITH THAT ONE. TALK ABOUT EXCITING AND FUN. JAMES CORDEN, THE NEW COAST AFTER FIVE YEARS OF THE SAME HOST. I’M SO EXCITED. HE SAID HE’S NOT GOING TO SING, BUT HE HAS TO DO SOME KARAOKE OR SOMETHING. HE HAS TO DO IT. HE HAS SUCH A GREAT VOICE AND SENSE OF HUMOR. HE SEEMS LIKE SUCH A NICE PERSON. HE DOES, AND HE’S AN ARTIST TYPE OF HOST. HE’S THERE TO SHOWCASE THE ARTIST IN A POSITIVE LIGHT. HE IS A MUSIC FAN. HE’S A SINGER. HE’S A REALLY GOOD SINGER. I’M EXCITED TO SEE WHAT HE BRINGS TO THE TABLE. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR INSIGHT. IT’S GOING TO BE SO FUN. YOU CAN WATCH THE PERFORMERS
