2024 Grammy Award Winner Predictions




It's that time of year again; the award show that everyone desperately waits for at the beginning of each year. The Grammy's have made a name for themselves over the last 66 years. Every artist and musician dreams of being awarded a Grammy in their lifetime. Although the academy award show has made some questionable choices when it comes to selecting their winners, I'm trying to have some hope this year. It's unclear whether they have any logic to their system, but none-the-less it's still one of the most highly anticipated award shows each year. In this article, we will be discussing the nominee's for all the pop music related categories along with who I think should win, verses who I think WILL win based on past choices from the academy.


Best Pop Dance Recording


Nominees:


Baby Don't Hurt Me - David Guetta, Anne Marie & Coi Leray

Miracle - Calvin Harris & Ellie Goulding

Padam Padam - Kylie Minogue

One In a Million - Bebe Rexha & David Guetta

Rush - Troye Sivan


Who we think will win:

Baby Don't Hurt Me - David Guetta, Anne Marie & Coi Leray



Out of all the nominations in this category, this song has the most streams. Although the Grammy's doesn't usually use statistics when they choose who wins, I think because this is such a recognizable tune, the board will default to choosing this track. Don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic song! I just think there are more impressive choices.


Who we want to win:

Rush - Troye Sivan



That impressive choice in my opinion would be "Rush" by Troye Sivan. Troye really took the dance music world by storm in 2023 when he released his album "Something To Give Each Other". The production is unique, diverse and catchy - and frankly, I just think Troye Sivan deserves a Grammy.


Best Pop Vocal Album


Nominees:


Chemistry - Kelly Clarkson

Endless Summer Vacation - Miley Cyrus

GUTS - Olivia Rodrigo

Subtract - Ed Sheeran

Midnights - Taylor Swift


Who we think will win:

Midnights - Taylor Swift



Who we want to win:

Midnights - Taylor Swift


I think there's no argument that Taylor Swift's "Midnights" is going to at least win one Grammy this year. If not in this category, it'll be album of the year. She's such a beloved person with an unbeatably large fanbase. "Midnights" was one of her biggest released to date, gaining her even more fans than she already had. If "Midnights: doesn't win this category, I'd love to see "Subtract" by Ed Sheeran be the winner as well. It's a brilliant album that deserves more recognition than it has.


Best Pop Duo/Group Performance


Nominees:


Thousand Miles - Miley Cyrus & Brandi Carlile

Candy Necklace - Lana Del Rey & Jon Batiste

Never Felt So Alone - Labrinth & Billie Eilish

Karma - Taylor Swift & Ice Spice

Ghost In The Machine - SZA & Phoebe Bridgers


Who we think will win:

Ghost In The Machine - SZA & Phoebe Bridgers



The reason I think they're going to choose "Ghost In The Machine" for this category, is because I don't see SZA NOT winning at least one Grammy this year. Her album "SOS" broke through to mainstream and heavily increased her fanbase.


Who we want to win:

Karma - Taylor Swift & Ice Spice



I'd love to see "Karma" win, because it's one of the best songs on the "Midnights" album - even the version without Ice Spice. However, just like SZA, I would be shocked if Ice Spice left without winning at least one Grammy this year. She was a major breakout artist, but honestly I'd rather her win this one than the "Best New Artist" because there are just so many great nominees on that list.


Best Pop Solo Performance


Nominees:


Flowers - Miley Cyrus

Paint The Town Red - Doja Cat

What Was I Made For? - Billie Eilish

Vampire - Olivia Rodrigo

Anti-Hero - Taylor Swift


Who we think will win:

Flowers - Miley Cyrus



Who we want to win:

Flowers - Miley Cyrus


Again, I just don't see "Flowers" by Miley Cyrus NOT winning at least one Grammy this year. It's just a matter of which category it'll win. I think it'll be "Best Solo Performance" because she's up against some pretty great songs in the other categories she's nominated for.


Best New Artist


Nominees:

Gracie Abrams

Fred again..

Ice Spice

Jelly Roll

Coco Jones

Noah Kahan

Victoria Monet

The War And Treaty


Who we think will win:

Ice Spice



Like I said before, I don't see Ice Spice not winning a Grammy this year. Even though I personally think others on this list deserve it just a little more based on their accomplishments, I have a feeling that the Grammy's are going to award her with "Best New Artist".


Who we want to win:

Gracie Abrams



In my opinion, Gracie Abrams came out with one of the best albums of 2023, "Good Riddance". She was an opener on the Era's tour and has gained a decently sized, loyal fanbase. I think she deserves to be a Grammy winner, and if not her I also think Noah Kahan is a great contender considering how his career blew up as well.


Song of the Year


Nominees:


A&W - Lana Del Rey

Anti-Hero - Taylor Swift

Butterfly - Jon Batiste

Dance The Night - Dua Lipa

Flowers - Miley Cyrus

Kill Bill - SZA

Vampire - Olivia Rodrigo

What Was I Made For? - Billie Eilish


Who we think will win:

What Was I Made For? - Billie Eilish



I will be shocked if this song doesn't win a Grammy this year. Again, it's all about which category the academy chooses for it. Song of the year usually focuses on songwriting. To me personally, I feel this song deserves "Record of the Year" which focuses on production, performance, and writing rather than just the songwriting. However, because the Grammys doesn't always use logic when making their choices, I think they're going to award it Song of the Year instead.


Who we want to win:

Anti-Hero - Taylor Swift



Like I said, Song of the Year is awarding the songwriting of a song. Taylor Swift is one of the greatest songwriters of our time, and "Anti-Hero" is one of her most relatable, lyrically complex pop songs ever released. Logically it would make sense for her to win this category, but I'm not sure the academy thinks the way common listeners do. I also believe that "Dance The Night" by Dua Lipa has a chance at winning as well, if not Taylor or Billie.


Album of the Year


Nominees:


World Music Radio - Jon Batiste

the record - boygenius

Endless Summer Vacation - Miley Cyrus

Did You Know That There's a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd - Lana Del Rey

The Age of Pleasure - Janelle Monae

GUTS - Olivia Rodrigo

Midnights - Taylor Swift

SOS - SZA


Who we think will win:

Midnights - Taylor Swift



Who we want to win:

Midnights - Taylor Swift


Like mentioned earlier, if Midnights doesn't win Best Pop Vocal Album, then I can't imagine it not winning Album of the Year. It's such a complex and universally loved album that it has to win at least one of it's categories. Ideally, it would be Album of the Year which is one of the major awards. This would break records for Taylor, being that she'd be the only artist to win Album of The Year 4 times, and as a female. Not to mention if she wins at least one Grammy this year, it'll be her 13th win.


Record of the Year


Nominees:


Worship - Jon Batiste

Not Strong Enough - boygenius

Flowers - Miley Cyrus

What Was I Made For? - Billie Eilish

On My Mama - Victoria Monae

Vampire - Olivia Rodrigo

Anti-Hero - Taylor Swift

Kill Bill - SZA


Who we think will win:

Flowers - Miley Cyrus



"Flowers" is nominated for a lot of categories this year. It's bound to win at least one of them. Record of the Year is considered the biggest award of the night, focusing on all aspects of the song including production, performance, and writing. Considering that "Flowers" was one of the biggest songs of 2023, gaining over a billion streams, I think it makes sense for it to win this category, if not any of the others.


Who we want to win:

What Was I Made For? - Billie Eilish



However, in my opinion, "What Was I Made For?" was one of the best songs to come out this year. It's also nominated in a number of categories, but I think it's such an incredibly done song that it deserves to win Record of the Year above all the other categories. We can only hope that the Academy feels the same way.


This year's annual Grammy Awards will air this Sunday, on February 4th, 8pm EST live in Los Angeles. Trevor Noah will be hosting again this year, with performances by Billie Eilish, Billy Joel, Burna Boy, Dua Lipa, Joni Mitchell, Luke Combs, Olivia Rodrigo, SZA, Travis Scott, and U2.
