2011 Grammy Awards: Our Grammy Prediction

Ketika artikel ini mulai ditulis, hitungan mundur di situs resmi http://www.grammy.com/ menunjukkan tinggal 2 hari 1 jam 58 menit 25 detik menuju pesta musik akbar and event of the year yang ditunggu-tunggu oleh semua kalangan baik pelaku musik maupun pencinta musik. Rasanya gak afdol kalo kita tidak membicarakan the possibilities siapa aja kira-kira yang bakal berjaya. Tahun ini jelas hip-hop mendominasi, thanks to you Drake! Rappers kayak Eminem dan Jay-Z diyakini kuat bisa memborong gramophone emas dalam waktu semalam, yang mungkin kalo diakumulasikan jumlahnya melebihi jumlah gramophone yang dikoleksi Mariah Carey selama 20 tahun dia berkarya.
Kami tidak akan memprediksi semua nominasi satu persatu. Mungkin kalo kami pengangguran dan teramat terlalu berdedikasi pada dunia musik sebegitunya sampe sudah mendengarkan semua lagu di tiap nominasi (ada 109 nominasi. Weww), mungkin saja akan ada list prediksi lengkap dari tiap nominasi, semua field. But that's not gonna happen now. So we pick the popular categories, yang santer ramai dibicarakan tiap tahun. Shall we begin?
