Grammy 2013 Winners Predictions: Frank Ocean And The Black Keys Set To Ruin Fun?

An Adele-less Grammy Awards makes for a wide open field in 2013, with many pondering whose going to step up and fill the void that the all-conquering British singer filled last year. From considered opinions to manipulation of statistics, the consensus isn’t easy to gauge, though there seems to be a few trends emerging, namely that some think fun. could make a surprise sweep, whilst others think Frank Ocean’s also likely to be among the headline makers come Sunday evening (February 10, 2013).

Fun. , lest we forget, are the only artists who have a chance of pulling off a sweep, given that they’re the only ones nominated in all four of the considered ‘big’ categories: record of the year, song of the year, album of the year and artist of the year, and with no other artist making a substantially better claim for pop dominance than their huge hit ‘We Are Young’ and subsequent album Some Nights, they could well be quids in.

Others in the mix, however, include Frank Ocean and The Black Keys. The latter took three Grammys off of the success of their Brothers album back in 2011 and their follow up El Camino has been just as successful commercially. Frank Ocean meanwhile won huge critical acclaim for his LP Channel Orange last year; he isn’t quite in the same league as some of the other contenders when it comes to commercial sales, but if the critics had their way Ocean would be dominating the album of the year category.

Spotify have been using their streaming data in order to work out who is likely to win at the weekend. According to Entertainment Weekly, the streaming giants think that Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance are both going to Gotye for his viral hit ‘Somebody That I Used to Know,’ whilst Brits Mumford & Sons could be taking home Album of the Year. The Lumineers are favored to win Best New Artist – something we think is well nailed on - whilst they also think that Carly Rae Jepsen will be winning Best Pop Solo Performance.
