Ok, so here’s who I think SHOULD win… and hopefully they do. Basically, I’m rooting for Sam Smith (though, I’d love Bastille to win New Artist). I called it a few months ago, 2104 was basically all about Sam Smith!
Album of the year: Sam Smith In The Lonely Hour - any other would be a huge upset and just wrong. Even you Queen B..
Record of the year: Sam Smith “Stay With Me” – Such a strong song. Love “Chandelier” by Sia, “Shake It Off” by Taylor… but it’s all about “Stay With Me” and not the bass…
Song of the Year: Sam Smith “Stay With Me” – wouldn’t mind Hozier winner one as well.. his album is so strong. Yes, I know it’s about the song, and “Take Me To Church” is massive.
New Artist: Sam Smith. I like Haim, and Bastille are one of my faves of all time… but it’s all Sam.
Pop Solo Performance: Sam Smith “Stay With Me”
Alternative Album: My pick – Alt-J “This Is All Yours”, but I think Jack White will take it.
Rock Album: The Black Keys Turn Blue
Rap Album – I’m rooting for Common and Eminem, but absolutely clueless as to who will take it.
Urban Contemporary Album – Beyoncé – Beyoncé
Country Album… meh.
