As they do every year, the GRAMMY’s have released a preview album and various lists of who’s up for what awards. This year, we decided to get a bit of a heads up on who we believe deserves to take home the gold.

So without further adieu, here are our oh-so-humble opinions of who should win in what categories:

Record of the Year – “We Are Young” by Fun.

Album of the Year – “Some Nights” by Fun. We have a couple Fun fans on staff.

Song of the Year – “Call Me Maybe,” by Carly Rae Jepsen. If you don’t think this song pretty much defined 2012, then you are wrong.

Best New Artist – The Lumineers They were really the only ones we thought that were nominated that actually “broke through” this year.

Best Pop Solo Performance – “Stronger” by Kelly Clarkson

Best Pop Duo/Group Performance – “Payphone” by Maroon 5

Best Pop Vocal Album – “Ceremonials” by Florence + the Machine

Best Rock Performance – “Charlie Brown” by Coldplay I thought they disappeared after “Viva La Vida”, but ok.

Best Rock Song – “We Take Care of Our Own” by Bruce Springsteen

Best Urban Contemporary Album – “Channel Orange” by Frank Ocean

Best Traditional R&B Performance – “Love On Top” by Beyoncé

Best Dance Recording – “Don’t You Worry Child” Swedish House Mafia feat. John Martin

Best Dance/Electronic Album – “Bangarang” by Skrillex

Best Producer – Jeff Bhasker He produced Fun’s album, but he also produced Lana Del Rey’s and Natalia Kills’ albums.

And now here’s some other artists who were nominated to go against some of the ones mentioned above for a prestigious GRAMMY:

“Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye – Nope.

“Try” by Pink – No.

“Adorn” by Miguel – Who?

“Hold On” by Alabama Shakes. Please go YouTube them.

“I Will Wait” by Mumford & Sons. Please no.

“Set Fire to the Rain” by Adele. She has not done anything for almost a year except for “Skyfall,” and we all know she is going to walk away with some award, but please Adele, share your wealth.

“We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift – No way.

“Wide Awake” by Katy Perry. Can we just give her an award? She’s never actually won an award of this stature, even though she does hold the world record for most No. 1 singles from a lone album. It would look nice on the mantle or something.

Mainly, we focused on what we would be interested in, but the Grammy audience reaches past what we mentioned, so do some Google magic to figure out the rest.
