The 2014 GRAMMY Awards: Album Of The Year Predictions
The nominees for the 56th annual GRAMMY awards are almost here: could one these picks be Album Of The Year?
Friday, December 6th is a big day to add in your calendars: the 56th annual GRAMMY Award nominees will be announced by LL Cool J himself! The epic GRAMMY awards ceremony, airing January 26th live from Los Angeles, will showcase the world's best artists, musicians, songwriters and performers getting together to celebrate music's biggest night. One of the most coveted GRAMMY awards is always the Album Of The Year, so we thought we'd delve deep into the albums released over the past year that could potentially qualify for the title.
We're breaking down our choices for the nominees in four different categories, sort of like betting on sports teams: who's a shoe-in to be nominated, who's got a good chance at making it, who's the underdog, and finally the ones who would make it if it was only by a long shot.
