Grammy Guesses

Tomorrow night is the Grammy’s, so I thought I’d take a stab at picking the winners. We’ll see if I’m even close! I had a coworker pick the Rap category for me, it’s not my forte, so thanks Kev. Here’s the list of the categories I thought I’d try and my picks will be in bold!


Record of the Year

·         Get Lucky – Daft Punk Feat. Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers, Random Access Memories

·         Royals – Lorde, Pure Heroine

·         Locked Out of Heaven – Bruno Mars, Unorthodox Jukebox

·         Blurred Lines – Robin Thicke Feat. T.I. & Pharrell, Blurred Lines

Although I would like Radioactive to win, but I think Lorde will get a few awards. I really would love to see SNL do a skit of Lorde singing, sorry, but it's so funny!
