My Can’t Fail 2015 Grammy Award Predictions

The Grammy Awards are this weekend.   Two years ago, I vowed not to watch it because The Walking Dead was coming back for it’s mid-season premiere.  This year, that premiere is again on at the same time as the Grammys.  The show takes a two-month break because television execs are afraid no one would watch over the holiday season.   But I’d bet that people would watch it on Christmas Eve, so the concept of taking that break is absolutely ridiculous.

What’s even more ridiculous is that I’ve become hooked on another show that’s on at the same time as the Grammy telecast …


So it’s going to be tough to decide what to watch.   Will I get to see if Darryl and Michonne finally get it on and spawn a bad-assed kid the post-apocalyptic earth desparately needs?   Or will I watch Lady Edith get the fulfilling, rainbows-and-unicorn happy life she so deserves?

If you watch any either of shows, you’ll know that the answer to both of those predictions is a resounding HELL NO.

As for the Grammy predictions, I made some pretty bold ones last year and the only I got right was the Grammy President dude hogging the microphone for way too long.    But at least that post was pretty damn good if I do say so myself.   #patsselfonback

But I’m not going to let my miserable track record of predictions stop me from making what I believe are some sure-fire predictions for this year…


Album of the Year:

Beyonce’s Beyonce is the front-runner here because it’s a really freaking good, critics and fans loved it and…. c’mon it’s Beyonce.   Though Beck’s Morning Phase might surprise people.   Not by winning, but surprise people that he’s even still making music.

Prediction: Bey

Best Country Song

I’ve decided that I really need to be more inclusive as there may be two or three of my avid followers that may actually enjoy country music.  I know I fucking don’t.

Prediction:   The song by that white person about getting boozed up and leaving your man even though he’s got an old reliable pickup truck because… AMERICA!


Best Pop Vocal Album

This is a really tough one because I like all the artists – Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, and Sam Smith.

Prediction: Ed Sheeran, because Sam Smith will win a dozen others and they want to make sure everyone goes home with a prize.

But you know who I really want to win…

2015 gram ariana


Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album

WTF is that?   Is that really a category?    OK, let’s see who’s nominated… Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, Annie Lennox, Barry Manilow, Johnny Mathis, Barbra Streisand.

Prediction: Half of this list will not be alive for the 2016 Grammy Awards.


Best New Artist

This will come down to Sam Smith, Iggy Azalea, and Bastille.   Although I don’t know how the hell Bastille is in consideration for this when their song Pompeii was released in January.   Of 2013.

Bold Prediction: Sam Smith will beat out Iggy for the award.


Not as Bold Prediction:  Half of America’s going to freak out that both of them are white.


What are you going to watch?

    Miley’s album was actually kinda great. FYI.

    Downton Abbey, though I will most likely need to record it and watch it later as it will be 4 (kids) to 1 (mom) in favor of The Walking Dead.

      In our house, TWD has the numbers (including me) but the 2 dissidents wield more power. No democracy here.

        Out of the 3 I think Downton faired best- I heard the Grammys were snooze and TWD was very depressing-but kind of in a beautiful way

          Didnt see Downton… Grammys had some moments, but definitely snoozy. Im getting tired of their insistence on doing all those collaborations. TWD was all kinds of depressing. Hated it for reasons that are spoilers.
