2015 GRAMMY Predictions: Who (Besides Beyonce) Will Win?

By
The 2015 GRAMMYs are almost here and we're picking favorites!
Well, maybe not favorites -- but ETonline.com is breaking down which artists we think will walk away from Sunday's ceremony with some shiny new hardware in the top categories.
RECORD OF THE YEAR
Nominees:
“Fancy” Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX
“Chandelier” Sia
“Stay With Me (Darkchild Version)” Sam Smith
“Shake It Off” Taylor Swift
“All About That Bass” Meghan Trainor

Winner?
We've gotta go with Sia on this one, although she has some stiff competition in Smith and Swift. Before you Swifties get all up in arms, hear us out: we love “Shake It Off” as much as the next person, but of the seven GRAMMYs Swift already has, not one of them is for Record or Song of the Year. She could very likely nab the award for Best Pop Solo Performance, but Record of the Year will be tough.
ALBUM OF THE YEAR
Nominees:
Morning Phase Beck
Beyonce Beyonce
X Ed Sheeran
In the Lonely Hour Sam Smith
Girl Pharrell Williams
Winner?
Say it with us now – BEYONCE. Bow down, bitches.
SONG OF THE YEAR (Awarded to Songwriters)
Nominees:
“All About That Bass” Kevin Kadish & Meghan Trainor
“Chandelier” Sia Furler & Jesse Shatkin
“Shake It Off” Max Martin, Shellback & Taylor Swift
“Stay With Me (Darkchild Version)” James Napier, William Phillips & Sam Smith
“Take Me To Church” Andrew Hozier-Byrne

Winner?
This award is for songwriting, not production value. There are some top-notch entries in this category, but we’d love to see Hozier take this one. “Take Me to Church” is a gorgeous song, it’s intelligent, and it’s struck a chord with industry insiders and fans alike.
BEST NEW ARTIST
Nominees:
Iggy Azalea
Bastille
Brandy Clark
Haim
Sam Smith

Winner?
We think Smith has got this one in the bag. Clark and Haim have earned critical acclaim over the last year, but we don’t call Smith the male Adele (sorry!) for nothing. (Adele nabbed the Best New Artist GRAMMY back in 2009. She was also nominated for Record and Song of the Year for “Chasing Pavements,” but was defeated by Robert Plant & Alison Krauss and Coldplay, respectively.)
