The Way Too Early Grammys Prognostications- Part 1

By Alan Ho

The gifts are unwrapped.  You’re probably stuffed full of food and other things and emotions.  You might even be back at work because you were unable to take the rest of the year off say “see you on January 3!”

But the Grammys are coming and before you know it, it’s February.  And since we got nothing better to do as the infamous dead period is almost upon us between New Year’s and February 10, we got some way-too-early predictions for key and major categories for the 2019 Grammys!

Record of the Year

I Like It- Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin

The Joke- Brandi Carlile

This Is America- Childish Gambino

God’s Plan- Drake

Shallow- Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper

All The Stars- Kendrick Lamar & SZA

Rockstar- Post Malone ft. 21 Savage

The Middle- Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey


Prediction- This Is America- Childish Gambino

Who will win- This Is America- Childish Gambino

Who should win- The Middle- Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey

Look, you gotta be honest, we are living in very interesting times and while it would be safe for the Academy to pick “The Middle,” I expect the Academy to continue to send subliminal messages to the current occupant of the White House and pick Childish Gambino’s scathing commentary on the state of the country.

Album of the Year

Invasion of Privacy– Cardi B

By The Way, I Forgive You– Brandi Carlile

Scorpion– Drake

H.E.R.- H.E.R.

Beerbongs & Bentleys– Post Malone

Dirty Computer– Janelle Monae

Golden Hour– Kacey Musgraves

Black Panther: The Album, Music From And Inspired By– Various Artists


Prediction- Scorpion

Who will win- Scorpion

Who should win- By The Way, I Forgive You

Who really should win?  Should be Brandi Carlile’s By The Way, I Forgive You and not just because I know her publicity rep (that helps).  She should win because it should show that the Grammys actually care about good ol’ fashioned guitar driven genres.  But lately, they don’t, continuing the perception that music has devolved into every genre getting imbibed with EDM or hip-hop.  So Drake’s Scorpion will continue the trend of guitar-driven genres getting the shaft.

Best New Artist

Chloe x Halle

Luke Combs

Greta Van Fleet


Dua Lipa

Margo Price

Bebe Rexha

Jorja Smith


Prediction:  Dua Lipa

Who will win:  Jorja Smith
