It was not too long ago that we at RedTube, asked our users to help us predict the U.S. election. And as it turns out, your prediction came true. We are back at it again, only this time we are trusting you to help predict the Grammy winners at this year’s awards ceremony. A couple of weeks ago we hosted a survey on the site to see which artists you think will walk away with a Grammy. We’ll need to tune into the broadcast on Sunday, February 12th to see if you were right in your predictions, but for now, here’s how more than 100,000 of our viewers voted.
Let’s begin with the most anticipated award of the evening, Record of the Year. With 39% of viewer votes, Adele’s recent hit “Hello” should get her the Grammy for this one. Although “Stressed Out” by Twenty One Pilots is pretty close, with 24%. Queen Bey rounds out this category with a mere 11% for her anthem “Formation”.
“Hello from the other side” is right! If our viewers had a say in who should walk away with this year’s Grammy’s Adele would be on her own playing field. Voted most likely to walk away with Album of the Year and Song of the Year, Adele is pulling ahead of the other nominees with her album “25” and popular hit “Hello”. Beliebers came out voted for their main man but JB’s “Purpose” falls second for Album of Year. She tired to make lemonade from lemons, but Beyonce is tied at 3rd with Drake for their albums (respectively) “Lemonade” and “Views”. “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth” comes in last with 3% of the votes for Album of the Year.
Moving on to Best New Artist, The Chainsmokers were voted most likely to take home the gold in this category. With top 40 hits like “Closer”, “Don’t let me Down” and “All We Know” it’s no wonder they have the popular vote. Best Pop Solo Performance goes to queen of the evening, Adele for her song “Hello” followed extremely closely by pop diva Ariana Grande with her summer hit “Dangerous Woman”. OG American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson rounds out the category with 7% of the votes. No surprise here, Adele also takes home a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album of the year with 32% of votes.
“Death of a Bachelor” received 38% of the votes for Best Rock Album this year. Blink 182’s “California” followed with 33% of the votes. The winner for Best Alternative Music was the late, great David Bowie. According to our viewers, his last album “Blackstar” would add another notch on his Grammy awards belt.
We all remember that time Kanye West stole the mic from T-Swift to pronounce that “Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time”. Well this year, Yeezy is going up against Queen Bey for Best Rap/Sung Performance, both tied in second with 17% of the votes. Although we’ll have to wait ’til Feb. 12 to see if any drama goes on should she win instead of him, one thing is for sure- our viewers aren’t counting of either of them to take home the award in this category. Canadian cutie, Drake is the front runner with 44% of the votes for “Hotline Bling”.
Don’t forget to tune into CBS on Feb 12 to see if we were right or wrong. In the meantime, didn’t get to vote? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
