2014 Grammys Preview: Best New Artist

BEST NEW ARTIST

THE NOMINEES:

James Blake
Kendrick Lamar
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Kacey Musgraves
Ed Sheeran

WHO SHOULD WIN:

Retrograde2013This one, from a strictly musical perspective deserves to go to James Blake, one of the most compelling artists in music today. Granted, he should have been nominated last year. The artist who should get the award from all-encompassing perspective is easily Kendrick Lamar, though. In third place would have be Kacey Musgraves.

WHO SHOULDN’T WIN:

EdSheeranRealistically, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis don’t deserve to win, but feel free to turn off your televisions in unison if Ed Sheeran walks away with this one. Not only is he a boring, contrived artist in general, but the man was nominated for Song of the Year last year. I don’t care what kind of rule changes there were, he doesn’t deserved to fill this slot that should have gone to acts like HAIM or especially Lorde this year.

WHO WILL WIN:

MacklemoreRyanLewisFor some reason, I feel like they’re going to give this one to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. They’ve had way too much success over the past year to be completely overlooked, unfortunately. In second place would have to be Kendrick Lamar, followed by Kacey Musgraves, both of whom are deserving winners.
