Grammy Awards 2013: Nominees, Winners, and LIVE Updates

Welcome to Grammy time! I will be live blogging here on Policymic this Sunday, to talk about all the crazy outfits and all the drunk celebrities. Will Kanye get up on stage again? Do we care?

Here is a list of the nominees in some of the favorite categories: Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist, and Best Pop Solo Performance. 

Despite the theatrics, there really were so many worthy songs last year, and some amazing new artists. Who knew Goyte would stick in your head like watermelon bubble gum? Who could conceive that Katy Perry would last this long?

Take a quick peek and start thinking about who YOU will be rooting for this year, and if you haven’t checked out some of these albums, maybe give them a chance! You are guaranteed to not be disappointed.
