Who Will Take Home the Grammy? Predictions for the 65th Award Show

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Pace chapter.

On Sunday, Feb. 5 the Grammy’s will host its 65th annual award show from Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena; and celebrate the biggest night in the music industry. While looking at the nominations, I started to place my guesses on who I believe is going to take home the Grammy for their respective category. However, I wanted to see what other people were thinking so, I decided to ask my fellow Her Campus Pace members and other Pace University students. I want to mention that I didn’t predict every category since there are so many. To see the full list of nominations and other categories visit the Grammy website.
