2024 Grammy Award Predictions

Sayge Rolnick
The annual Grammy Awards is right around the corner! Read on about predictions for major categories.

Artists around the world strive to hold the heavy gold trophy in the shape of a gramophone at the annual Grammy awards show. The Grammys features a variety of artists from every major music genre, including pop, electric, rap, Latin, R&B, and so forth. 

Millions of fans around the world tune in to watch the event and see their favorite artists either, in their opinions, rightfully gain the award they deserve or wrongfully lose the award to someone whom they have never heard of. Although the Grammys show is an upbeat and interesting event, it also spurs a lot of controversy regarding the decisions of who wins and who does not. Even if someone does not watch the Grammys, he or she will still hear the results one way or another.

The nominations for the 2024 Grammy Award Show came with mixed emotions from the listeners and fans of certain artists.

Record of the Year:

“Worship” by Jon Batiste

“Not Strong Enough” by boygenius

“Flowers” by Miley Cyrus

“What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish

“On My Mama” by Victoria Monet

“Vampire” by Olivia Rodrigo

“Anti-Hero” by Taylor Swift

“Kill Bill” by SZA

My prediction for the winner would have to be “What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish. This song was the hit of the summer once the Barbie movie was released, and it was everywhere. Also, Eilish has held a successful Grammys streak in past years, and I believe this year will be no different.

Album of the Year:

World Music Radio by Jon Batiste

The Record by boygenius

Endless Summer Vacation by Miley Cyrus

Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd by Lana Del Ray

The Age of Pleasure by Janelle Monae

GUTS by Olivia Rodrigo

Midnights by Taylor Swift


My prediction for the winner is GUTS by Olivia Rodrigo. Once her sophomore album was released earlier this year, almost the entire world went crazy. Every single or album that Rodrigo has released, regardless of the time between them, has been more successful than the last one.

Song of the Year:

“A&W” by Lana Del Ray

“Anti-Hero” by Taylor Swift

“Butterfly” by Jon Batiste

“Dance the Night” by Dua Lipa

“Flowers” by Miley Cyrus

“Kill Bill” by SZA

“Vampire” by Olivia Rodrigo

“What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish

My prediction for the winner is “Anti-Hero” by Taylor Swift. After her album Midnights was released last fall, fans particularly love this one out of the rest. It has been plastered on every radio station almost everywhere. The majority of people have heard this song at least once, evidencing its success and popularity.

Best New Artist:

Gracie Abrams

Fred again…

Ice Spice

Jelly Roll

Coco Jones

Noah Kahan

Victoria Monet

The War and Treaty

My prediction for the winner is Gracie Abrams. As a fan of her music, I have been able to see the growth of her sound throughout the years. I really do believe this year has been her year; from touring with Taylor Swift to releasing an album, she has become a favorite among many.

Best Pop Duo/Group Performance:

“Thousand Miles” by Miley Cyrus featuring Brandi Carlile

“Candy Necklace” by Lana Del Ray featuring Jon Batiste

“Never Felt So Alone” by Labrinth featuring Billie Eilish

“Karma” by Taylor Swift featuring Ice Spice

“Ghost Machine” by SZA featuring Phoebe Bridgers

My prediction for the winner is “Never Felt So Alone” by Labrinth featuring Billie Eilish. Vocally and musically, this is the best choice for this category. The blend between the two voices works extremely well with this style of music.

Best Country Song:

“Buried” by Brandy Clark

“I Remember Everything” by Zach Bryan

“In Your Love” by Tyler Childers

“Last Night” by Morgan Wallen

“White Horse” by Chris Stapleton

My prediction for the winner is “I Remember Everything” by Zach Bryan. This piece both lyrically and musically provides an emotional and captivating display of what Bryan was going through at the time when he wrote that song.

The Grammy Awards show is a star-studded event that both celebrates the work of well-known music musicians and shines light on new, emerging artists learning to perfect their craft. The above predictions will be proven right or wrong on February 4.
