yvu1hKR

The 56th annual Grammy Awards are tonight – Sunday, January 26th. Watch the ceremony at 8/7  central on CBS.

ALBUM OF THE YEAR

Will Win: Red by Taylor Swift

Should Win: The Heist by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

Taylor Swift’s music is as organic as her shocked face. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis deserve this for not only creating music with great messages, but changing the independent label game.

RECORD OF THE YEAR

Will Win: Get Lucky by Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams

Should Win: Royals by Lorde

Get Lucky is a great tune, but Royals was the standout record here this year.

SONG OF THE YEAR

Will Win: Royals by Lorde

Should Win: Same Love by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

Let’s not even talk about what Katy Perry’s Roar is doing nominated in the category celebrating great lyrics, and instead focus on Royals and Same Love both sending powerful, yet very different messages. Macklemore and Lewis should be awarded for being that much braver here, though.

BEST NEW ARTIST

Will Win: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

Should Win: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

Although Kendrick Lamar has some great buzz, and you never know about that country vote for Musgraves.

POP VOCAL ALBUM

Will Win: The 20/20 Experience by Justin TImberlake

Should Win: Pure Heroine by Lorde

If Justin had just submitted the first half of 20/20, he would wholeheartedly deserve this. Alas, the second half floundered in mediocrity and so Lorde takes this for her superior pop record.

BEST POP SOLO PERFORMANCE

Will Win: Roar by Katy Perry

Should Win: Brave by Sara Bareilles

The Grammy voters will definitely want to get Perry on that stage, but Bareilles deserves this for Brave being everything Roar wished it was.

BEST POP DUO/GROUP PERFORMANCE

Will Win: Get Lucky by Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams

Should Win: Just Give Me a Reason by P!nk featuring Nate Ruess

P!nk and Nate Ruess truly shine together on this amazing duet, but sadly Daft Punk will take it.

BEST DANCE/ELECTRONICA ALBUM

Will Win: Random Access Memories by Daft Punk

Should Win: Settle by Disclosure.

Seriously, have I told you how amazing Disclosure is?
