    Note: This is NOT the full list of nominees and winners; these are just some the selected categories that were monitored as the winners were announced on the night. All nominees and winners were chosen by The GRAMMY jury and all nominees were officially announced by The Academy themselves. The full list of nominees and winners are located on the GRAMMY website. The link is posted underneath. All predictions are made simply by opinion. Any nominees who won on the night that I predicted correctly is down to pure coincidence, and I did not know who was be winning the awards whatsoever. Congratulations to all nominees  and winners. 

    *Certain categories I wasn’t able to make a prediction on, due to not hearing ALL tracks that were nominated

    **The tracks listed underneath the producers names are NOT nominated for that award, they are simply a few songs that the nominated producers have helped or have fully produced themselves.
