Grammy Predictions 2015

grammys-aoty-2015-608x304
If you’ve seen any of my predictions (Oscars, Golden Globes, previous Grammys), you know I struggle to reach 50% right. This year I’m trying something different-going against my better judgement and picking terrible songs and artists to win. What I think will win will be in BOLD. What I think SHOULD win will be in italics.
