The 2015 Grammys: Our Predictions

The 2015 Grammys: Our Predictions

hozier singing

Now that the shambolic European Music Awards and American Music Awards are but a distant memory(seriously, One Direction being nominated is a travesty in itself, never mind the fact they won so many awards), we can finally focus on the real music awards, starting with The 57th Grammys which take place on tonight in Los Angeles’ Staples Center.

The ceremony will have particular interest on these shores this year as not only is our very own Hozier performing with the legendary Annie Lennox on the night, but he’s also nominated for Song of the Year for the incredible Take Me To Church.

As is tradition when it comes to award ceremonies, we at IMAGE.ie have decided to make a few predictions as to who will take home the famous golden gramophone. Our somewhat educated guesses are underlined. Who do you think will be the big winners on the night?
