57th Grammy Awards - Predictions

Sunday, February 8, 2015 should be marked and highlighted on your calendars... PVRs should be set, because THE 57th ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS® are on CBS.

Hosted by LL Cool J, this is one of the biggest nights in music. This year, the Grammy's are adding some 'old school' performances with Madonna and AC/DC... which I'm very much looking forward to seeing. They will be joining Gwen Stefani with Adam Levine, Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams (6 Nominations), Miranda Lambert, Sam Smith (6 Nominations), Ariana Grande, and many more. It is going to be a very entertaining night, no doubt. I am a little disappointed, however, that Taylor Swift is not scheduled to perform, but according to her Tumblr post, she's too focused and busy with the planning of her "1989 World Tour" to have been able to fully commit to a Grammy performance... understandable, but still disappointing.

On the topic of Taylor Swift... last year she went into the Grammy's with 4 nominations and came out with zero wins. This year, she's going in with only 3 nominations (because her 1989 album was released after the cut-off date for the Grammy's), but will she walk away with some of the gold?
