All 5 albums nominated are deserving in different ways and while some I hadn’t listened to before today I think the 2016 nominees is one of the strongest lists we have seen in a long time. There’s one or two big favourites in there, but it really could go anywhere this year.
Kicking things off we have probably the toughest category of the year, Best New Artist. Unlike the other big 3 categories, which feature countless potential nominees, Best New Artist is usually difficult to find 5 definite picks.
Over halfway through the eligibility period for the Grammy Awards 2016 I thought it was finally time to do some early nomination predictions.
