The 10 Stars Most Likely to Crush It at the GRAMMYs

1. Beyonce

1. 1. Beyonce

With 17 statuettes, Beyonce is one of the most awarded artists in Grammy history. But she’s never nailed Album of the Year. Will her self-titled visual project, released by surprise last year, change all that?

2. Iggy Azalea

The exciting Aussie rapper has been racking up controversies and Twitter beefs for months. If she wins for Best Rap Album, it’ll be the first for a female solo artist.

3. Beck

3. 3. Beck

His nod for Album of the Year is said to be a surprise, but oddsmakers and critics still give Morning Phase more of a chance at winning than Pharrell’s GIRL or Ed Sheeran’s X.

4.  Miley Cyrus

She made a huge splash with her naughty-cartoon-themed tour and racy videos. But will the actual music for Bangerz get any love? The album has garnered one nod for Best Pop Vocal Album.

5. Ed Sheeran

5. 5. Ed Sheeran

He’s got three nominations this year and is known for general adorableness, such as bringing his party-loving family with him to Grammy events. Don’t be surprised to see his parents with him again this year.

6. Miranda Lambert

The country darling is seen as overdue for a Grammy. She’s got four nominations this time; another shut-out could be seen as a true shock.

7. A Great Big World

They’ve had precisely one song make the charts, but that song, “Say Something,” just keeps getting new lives. The version with Christina Aguilera has garnered the record a nomination in the duet category this year.

8. Eric Church

8. 8. Eric Church

He’s up for four awards and has been nominated in the past, but this country hunk has never actually performed at the ceremony … until now. Rabid country fans who happen to be in the Staples Center will likely go nuts … with good reason.

9. Ariana Grande

9. 9. Ariana Grande

The relative newcomer is up for Best Pop Vocal Album, competing against heavyweights such as Coldplay, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry. Will she manage an upset victory?

10. Sam Smith

Grammy voters tend to skew a bit older, so it should be exciting to see whether this newcomer beats the odds in the Album of the Year category.
