2018 is one of the few year’s in recent memory when Best New Artist has been a pretty obvious collection of acts. Everyone here has garnered a nomination in at least one other category this year and with so much crossover between acts it’s a very difficult one to predict.
As always, I’m kicking off Grammy nomination prediction season with Best New Artist the award I’m notoriously bad at predicting. Last year I was convinced that Meghan Trainor wouldn’t win and she did, but at least I had her pegged as a nominee. This year I’m feeling oddly confident about my picks, all with major success under their belt.
