20 November 2013

It’s that time of year! Grammy Nominations will be announced in just under a month at the annual Grammy Nominations Live! Concert in NYC, and here at Take40, we are VERY excited!

Keeping in mind that albums released after September 30th 2013 will only be eligible for the 2015 ceremony (i.e. PRISM, ARTPOP), take a look below at our predictions for nominees for the biggest awards at the 2014 Grammy Awards!

The nominations ceremony will take place on December 6th 2013, and the awards ceremony will take place on February 9th.

No! No no no.... how can there be no Work Bitch by Britney in here?? I mean, JT's Mirrors is alright, I agree with you there. But oh my gosh, so over Katy Perry's album already. Roar has been massively overplayed and I find it very generic to be honest. Work Bitch is different and edgy - and very motivational!! :) :)

This is the Grammys. Songs that are well written and well produced get nominated for the main categories. Britney Spears' songs get nominated maybe for dance recording of the year not the major categories. Katy Perry's album is ineligible due to the timing of the release so maybe next year. As for Take 40, you forget Daft Punk- Get Lucky for Record of the Year. Good Kid Maad City was better than NWTS so Drake can't be put in that album of the year category, replace with either Good Kid Maad City or Vampire Weekend's latest album. For Best New Artist replace Emeli Sande with Phillip Phillips or Kacey Musgraves, you need to have someone from country genre there.
