Historically, the Best New Artist Grammy has been hit-or-miss in predicting the future. For every Adele or Christina Aguilera, both of whom went on to great success, there is an Esperanza Spalding or a Hootie & the Blowfish, both of whom went on to… less success. Still, if nothing else, the Best New Artist guessing game is somewhat entertaining.
Last year, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis took home the Best New Artist trophy. Who will win be so lucky in 2015?
Ahead of the 57th annual Grammy Awards, which air this Sunday, Feb. 8, the staff of Celebuzz took to guessing who will (and should) win the Best New Artist Grammy.
Without question, the frontrunners are Sam Smith and Iggy Azalea, two of the defining artists — for better or worse — of 2014. But one never knows for sure. Take a look at the 2015’s Best New Artist nominees, and then launch the gallery to see who we think stands a chance at winning.
The Celebuzz staff has given some thought as to who will win (and who should win). Launch the gallery above to see our predictions.
