Its Grammy Sunday, rivaled by only the Super Bowl for the most exciting Sunday of the year! Here at Jacob’s Sports we break-down the nominations of the album of the year, and give you our prediction!
Teenage Dream, by Katy Perry In what certainly is one of the most sang along to pop album of the year, Katy Perry joins other California Girls while she lives her Teenage Dream at the 53rd Grammy Awards! This album was one of the top five sellers of the year! Will the Fireworks go off for Katy Perry? Will she win this award? If this was based on radio plays, honestly she could win it, its hard to find a major radio station not playing “California Girls”, “Teenage Dream”, or “Firework” at any given moment! Perry has a good as chance of any for bringing home the trophy!
Recovery, by Eminem If I were to tell you this is not my favorite album of all time, you’d be saying “I love the way you lie”, because personally I believe this album deserves to soldify Em’s return to rap, and give him the trophy! That is why, this is my pick for album of the year! It features Kobe, Lil Wayne, Pink, Rihanna & Slaughterhouse, and features an all-star line-up of producers, including Dr. Dre. My favorite track off this album rarely sees any air time, and is title “Talking To Myself”, if you have time, go check it out!
The Fame Monster, by Lady Gaga The main reason this has slipped out of discussion is because it came out such a long time ago and its songs rarely are played anymore! Telephone, featuring Beyonce is amongst of slew of other hits including, Alejandro, Bad Romance, and Monster. This is the album that is on few predictors radar, but has the opportunity to win big!
The Suburbs, by Arcade Fire Now I am not going to be like all the other guys and act as if I know anything about this album, because I do not. None of us over here do. I do not want to go on youtube, type it in and listen to the songs because if none of us have ever heard of this album, it will not win. Do not even bother with this one folks, seeing as it will not win!
Need You Now, by Lady Antebellum I believe Need You Now was number one on iTunes for many of weeks, but other than that, non-country fans know little about this album. We all know the melody from the hit Need You Now, albeit this album does not prove much depth, and for that reason I do not think it will win! Great song though!
