Grammys 2010: What are your predictions?

Posted on

Grammy weekend! We’re only hours away, dear readers, from the music-industry’s premier awards-show rodeo.

We know who’s heading in with the most nominations—10 for Beyonce; eight for Taylor Swift; five for La Señora Gaga—and our own Simon Vozick-Levinson has kindly handicapped the evening with this Who Will Win/Who Should Win gallery. (You’re welcome! Tell your bookie we say hello.)

The rest, as wildly unexpected wins (Herbie Hancock’s 2008 Album of the Year upset; Springfield over Springsteen, etc.) have proven year after year, is almost entirely left in the hands of fate.

So we turn the oddsmaking to you, Music Mixers. For a full list, click here; for just the top categories (i.e. no Best Regional Mexican) read after the jump; then place your bets. Grammy Nominations 2010
