The Boss or Norah? We predict the Grammy winners
There’s nothing Grammy voters love more than an aging rocker on a comeback – except, perhaps, a comely young singer with a classic sound. So with Bruce Springsteen and Norah Jones among the top contenders for the 45th annual awards on Feb. 23, some voters’ knees may not have known which way to jerk. Add in the once-verboten, now-adored Eminem, and you have a suspenseful Grammy race. All three are nominated in five categories, along with Ashanti, Avril Lavigne, Sheryl Crow, Nelly, and Raphael Saadiq.
As the ceremony returns to New York City after four years in L.A., we polled some music-industry pros – many of them Grammy voters – for the anonymous scoop on who they think will nab the top trophies. Read on for our predictions in 14 Grammy races.
