Grammy award 2020

It’s about that time. The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony is kicking off this Sunday. Unfortunately, hip-hop artists didn’t receive much love in the major categories, with Tyler the Creator’s IGOR and DaBaby noticeably missing from Album of the Year and Best New Artist categories, respectively. But despite the genre’s rocky relationship with the Recording Academy, there is still a chance that some of our favorite artists will be walking away with awards this weekend. 

To think that Nipsey Hussle, Roddy Ricch, and Meek Mill could all win their first Grammys is exciting enough, but it will also be great to see some of the nominated acts hit the stage. Tyler, Lil Nas X, Ariana Grande, and Billie Eilish are all set to perform on Sunday. And Roddy, Meek, YG, DJ Khaled, John Legend, and Kirk Franklin have been tapped to present a tribute to Nipsey. 

So, who will win big at the Grammys in 2020? There’s bound to be at least one dark horse, but we shared our predictions for who will win in the big categories, as well as who we think should win.
