The Grammys are a sham, you say? The Buzz music writers have compiled their picks for the most deserving, and the most likely, artists to win Grammys in several major categories this year. As is often the case, we’re predicting a strong posthumous showing for Ray Charles. But watch as newcomer Kanye West runs up against an out-going Jay-Z, and Scotland takes on Ireland for the Best Video award. You can see how well we did this February 13th.
