Grammy 2014 Predictions: Who Will Win vs. Who Should Win

Grammy 2014 Predictions: Who Will Win - Who Should Win

The 56th annual Grammy Awards will take place this Sunday night (Jan. 26) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. We’ve debated the headlines; where are Miley and Gaga, will Katy Roar or Sara be Brave, and why on earth didn’t Lorde get a best new artist nod? Eight members of our staff sat over kale laced smoothies, and discussed our love of Kacey Musgraves, Neko Case, and Alabama Shakes, although we do not believe any will win in their respective categories. Instead, we came to an agreement on who we think will vs. should take home the coveted Grammy Award in the following fourteen categories...
