This year it seemed like the words “And the GRAMMY goes too” were hardly uttered during the night’s live broadcast, leaving plenty of room for the performances, which there were 20 of. All of which we ranked.
Who will walk away with GRAMMY gold at the 56th Annual awards? We rank the top 20 nominees.
Take a closer look at the nominees for the Album of the Year: Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Daft Punk, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Sara Bareilles. A panel of music experts weighed in on each album to tell you the stories behind their pop culture impact.
If Sara Bareilles ends up winning the Best Pop Solo Performance GRAMMY for “Brave,” she owes Sara Quin an Edible Arrangement or at least a thank you card.
Kacey Musgraves delivered an impressive and well-paced set of easy swinging country tunes with a pop twist. With echoes of southern rock like the Allman Brothers in some of her band’s extended arrangements, the emerging Texan singer-songwriter introduced a flair for reggae with her song “Step Off.”
