2015 Grammy Award Nominations and Predictions

The Grammy’s are practically the only award show that I completely love and watch for so many reasons. First I’m a huge fan of music. I love all types of music, in fact I wanted to be a singer when I was younger. Becoming a singer obviously didn’t work out but my passion for music will always be there. Below are some of the categories and the nominations of the 2015 Grammy awards. All opinions are my own, and If you don’t agree…it’s okay! The Grammy Awards will air this Sunday, Feb 8 on CBS.
