Grammy Prediction For Music Video Of The Year (2016)

Asap-Rocky-and-Kendrick-Lamar-Getty“But Beyonce had one of the best music videos of all-time!”    Kanye West may be crashing the stage at the Grammy Awards this year as Beyonce gets shut out again this year.   Three rap videos and one alt-rock American supergroup are all nominated against this year’s unstoppable force at the 2016 Grammy Awards.    Taylor Swift will likely become this year’s Sam Smith, the winner of a bevy of statues before the night is over.   Her celebrity studded video for “Bad Blood” is the heavy favorite for Music Video Of The Year but maybe the Grammy voters want to share the wealth in a category often overlooked.    Here are the five nominees for Grammy Music Video Of The Year and a prediction of their chances up against Princess Swift:

“BAD BLOOD”   TAYLOR SWIFT        To say that Taylor Swift had a good 2015 is an understatement.    Her sold out arena tour, record setting album sales of 1989, multiple #1 pop singles, and seven nominations at this year’s Grammy Awards…..With the video surpassing 700 Million views (yes, you read that right), it’s going to be tough to slow down the momentum. ODDS: 1 to 3

“L$D”   A$AP ROCKY        A wild trippy music video for “Love x Sex x Dreams”, it’s definitely one of best visual experiences of the year but A$AP won’t be winning this year.  ODDS:    30 to 1

“I FEEL LOVE”    THE DEAD WEATHER    Any band featuring Jack White and Alison Mosshart of The Kills will certainly grab your attention.   Unfortunately the stark black and white video just doesn’t keep your attention in comparison to the high profile nominees it’s up against.    ODDS:   40 to 1

“ALRIGHT”   KENDRICK LAMAR    Taylor’s got 7 nominations but she’s actually tied with The Weeknd for the runner-up for most nominations.   Kendrick Lamar tops the list with 11 nominations this year.   He’s a shoo-in for the Rap awards and may pull off a surprise on some of the big awards including Album Of The Year.   If anyone can slow down Taylor at the Grammys, Kendrick is the man.    ODDS  4 to 1

“FREEDOM”   PHARRELL WILLIAMS     Grammy voters LOVE Pharrell.   “Happy” and “Get Lucky” with Daft Punk rightfully dominated their categories over the past couple years.    “Freedom” is another feel-good message song but despite earnest efforts by Pharrell to turn it into his next anthem, it’s just not up that level.    ODDS    6 to 1
