From Gotye to Kanye and Jay-Z, who should be taking home shiny trophies?
Last year, Adele took home six Grammy awards. This year, men dominate most of the categories. Kanye West, Jay-Z, Mumford & Sons, and newcomers Frank Ocean and fun. have six nominations each. Some of the female artists include Alabama Shakes frontwoman and former postal service worker Brittany Howard, 28-year-old jazz singer Esperanza Spalding (who generated much outrage from the Bieber-ists when she took home Best New Artist in 2011), and American Idol-alum Kelly Clarkson.
The awards go out tomorrow but first we thought that we’d let you know who of the nominees we would give them to if we were in charge of the Grammys.
