Music: Grammy Nominations: Best New Artist
One more post on the Grammy nominations before the show actually gets going. I took a listen to the best new artist nominations and wanted to a quick analysis. The five nominees have created some great music this year.
Meghan Trainor is the most popular of these artist when she came on the scene last year with some huge hits like "All About That Bass" and "Lips Are Movin'". She is the most likely pick to win this award as she continues to produce great music and her songs are so catchy it's undeniable.
James Bay is my personal pick to win this award. His single "Let It Go" is a moving piece of music and the talent of his voice is undeniable. His songs have just started to gain popular attention but I think this nomination will certainly help his chances.
Courtney Barnett is perhaps the most unique artist in this category. Her voice definitely stick out and her style is memorable. I enjoyed several of her songs. This Australian singer has a bright future ahead of her.
Tori Kelly is the most pop music artist in the category. Big Sean is featured on her hit single and she has an amazing voice. I would not be surprise if she pulls out an upset in this category.
Sam Hunt is the country music star on this category. I think he has the least likely chance of winning but his unique style of singing and talking has certainly gained him attention.
Well, that's my last take on the final category of the Grammys and the show is underway with Taylor Swift kicking it off so I'll watch and have analysis of the winners soon!
